Genesis 24:4 - Staying within the family.

But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.
In following God's command, Abraham lived in Canaan outside the country of his homeland (Genesis 12:1). And just as Abraham sought a wife for his son Isaac from the country of his kindred, Isaac also instructed Jacob to find his wife from the same place, from Padanaram (Genesis 28:2).
