In Genesis, 24:17, the verse doesn't say that Rebecca drew water from the well as it had in other places like 24:13, "..the daughters of the people of the city are coming out to DRAW water" and 24:20, "...she ran again to the well to DRAW water, and she DREW for all his camels". Rashi, the 11th century biblical commentator, relates from the midrash, Bereishis Rabbah, that the water rose to her.
