Rashbam and Seforno: To flatter them - in that many people hoped that Yitzchak would marry their daughters, but Avraham refused them all, because he was only interested in his family in Charan.

2.

Rashi and Rashbam: Moreover, he showed them the document 1 testifying that Avraham gave everything that he owned to Yitzchak - to encourage them to allow Rivkah to marry him. 2
