Abraham offers Isaac
it came to pass after these things, that Eloheem did tempt
Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham and he said, Behold, [here] I
22:2 And he said, Take now your son, your only [son] Isaac, whom you love, and get you into the land
of Moriah ; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of
the mountains which I will tell you of.
22:3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled
his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his
son, and split the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and
went unto the place of which Eloheem had told him.
22:4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and
saw the place afar off.
22:5 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide you here with
the ass ; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come
again to you.
22:6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and
laid [it] upon Isaac his son ; and he took the fire in his hand,
and a knife ; and they went both of them together.
22:7 And Isaac spoke unto Abraham his father, and said, My
father and he said, Here [am] I, my son. And he said, Behold the
fire and the wood but where [is] the lamb for a burnt offering?
22:8 And Abraham said, My son, Eloheem will provide himself a
lamb for a burnt offering so they went both of them together.
22:9 And they came to the place which Eloheem had told him
of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order,
and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
22:10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife
to slay his son.
22:11 And the angel of Yehovah called unto him out of heaven,
and said, Abraham, Abraham and he said, Here [am] I.
22:12 And he said, Lay not your hand upon the lad, neither do
you any thing unto him for now I know that you fear Eloheem,
seeing you have not withheld your son, your only [son] from me.
A ram substituted
22:13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold
behind [him] a ram caught in a thicket by his horns and Abraham
went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in
the stead of his son.
22:14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh
as it is said [to] this day, In the mount of Yehovah it shall be
22:15 And the angel of Yehovah called unto Abraham out of
heaven the second time,
22:16 And said, By myself have I sworn, says Yehovah, for
because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son,
your only [son]
22:17 That in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I
will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the
sand which [is] upon the sea shore ; and your seed shall possess
the gate of his enemies ;
22:18 And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be
blessed ; because you have obeyed my voice.
22:19 So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose
up and went together to Beersheba ; and Abraham dwelt at
22:20 And it came to pass after these things, that it was
told Abraham, saying, Behold, Milcah, she has also born children
unto your brother Nahor ;
22:21 Huz his firstborn, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the
father of Aram,
22:22 And Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and
22:23 And Bethuel begat Rebekah these eight Milcah did bear
to Nahor, Abraham's brother.
22:24 And his concubine, whose name [was] Reumah, she bare
also Tebah, and Gaham, and Thahash, and Maachah.
