- And it came to pass after these things, that God did prove Abraham, and said unto him: "Abraham";
and he said: "Here am I."
- And He said: "Take now thy son, thine only son, whom thou lovest, even Isaac, and get thee into the land of Moriah;
and offer him there for a burnt-offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of."
- And Abraham rose early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son;
and he cleaved the wood for the burnt-offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.
- On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.
- And Abraham said unto his young men: "Abide ye here with the ass, and I and the lad will go yonder;
and we will worship, and come back to you."
- And Abraham took the wood of the burnt-offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son;
and he took in his hand the fire and the knife;
and they went both of them together.
- 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?"
- And Abraham said: "God will provide Himself the lamb for a burnt-offering, my son." So they went both of them together.
- And they came to the place which God had told him of;
and Abraham built the altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar, upon the wood.
- And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
- And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said: "Abraham, Abraham." And he said: "Here am I."
- And he said: "Lay not thy hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him;
for now I know that thou art a God-fearing man, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son, from Me."
- And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in the 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.
- And Abraham called the name of that place Adonai-jireh;
as it is said to this day: "In the mount where the LORD is seen."
- And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham a second time out of heaven,
- and said: "By Myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son,
- that in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore;
and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
- and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
because thou hast hearkened to My voice."
- So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beer-sheba;
and Abraham dwelt at Beer-sheba.
- And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Abraham, saying: "Behold, Milcah, she also hath borne children unto thy brother Nahor:
- Uz his first-born, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the father of Aram;
- and Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel."
- And Bethuel begot Rebekah;
these eight did Milcah bear to Nahor, Abraham"s brother.
- And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, she also bore Tebah, and Gaham, and Tahash, and Maacah.
