One of the characteristic phenomena of the Hebrew language is the common use of "nominal sentences", which don't require a verb (unlike English sentences). The most basic type of nominal sentences is created by juxtaposing two nouns, or a noun and an adjective, so that one noun is the subject of the sentence and the other is the predicate.
In order for us to find some examples, we will read Genesis 29:2, among other verses, where Jacob arrives at Paddan Aram, to see his uncle Laban. In the rest of this chapter, he will meet Rachel at the well. Stories of a man meeting his wife-to-be by a well were common in Israel. The story of Jacob meeting Rachel may be compared to the story of the meeting between Abraham's servant and Rebekah (Genesis 24), and especially to the story of the meeting between Moses and the daughters of Jethro (Exodus 2).
