Bethuel

(dweller in God), the son of Nahor by Milcah; nephew of Abraham, and father of Rebekah, (Genesis 22:22,23; 24:15,24,47; 28:2) In (Genesis 25:20) and (Genesis 28:5) he is called "Bethuel the Syrian."

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Man of God, or virgin of God, or house of God.

(1.) The son of Nahor by Milcah; nephew of Abraham, and father of Rebekah (Genesis 22:22, 23; 24:15, 24, 47). He appears in person only once (24:50).

(2.) A southern city of Judah (1 Chronicles 4:30); called also Bethul (Joshua 19:4) and Bethel (12:16; 1 Samuel 30:27).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
BETHUEL (1)

be-thu'-el (bethu'el; "dweller in God"): A son of Nahor and Milcah, Abraham's nephew, father of Laban and Rebekah (Genesis 22:23; Genesis 24:15, 24, 47, 50; 25:20:00; 28:2, 5). In the last-named passage, he is surnamed "the Syrian." The only place where he appears as a leading character in the narrative is in connection with Rebekah's betrothal to Isaac; and even here, his son Laban stands out more prominently than he-a fact explainable on the ground of the custom which recognized the right of the brother to take a special interest in the welfare of the sister (compare Genesis 34:5, 21, 25 2 Samuel 13:20, 22). Ant, I, xvi, 2 states that Bethuel was dead at this time.
