And it was, after these words*, that God tempted Abraham, and said to▵ him, Abraham; and he said, Behold me.
And He said, Take, I pray◦, thy son, thine only··one, whom thou lovest, even Isaac, and go to▵ the land of Moriah, and offer· him ·up there for a burnt··offering upon one of the mountains of which I will speak◦ to▵ thee.
And Abraham got··up··early in the morning, and saddled his donkey, and took two of his lads with◦ him, and Isaac his son; and he split the wood of the burnt··offering, and rose··up, and went to▵ the place of which God said to him.
And on◦ the third day Abraham lifted··up his eyes, and saw the place afar··off.
And Abraham said to▵ his lads, Sit ye here with the donkey, and I◦ and the lad will go thither▫, and we will bow· ourselves ·down, and will return to▵ you.
And Abraham took the wood of the burnt··offering, and set it on Isaac his son; and he took in his hand the fire and the knife; and the two of them went together.
And Isaac said to▵ Abraham his father; and he said, My father; and he said, Behold me, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood; and where◦ is the lamb◦ for a burnt··offering?
And Abraham said, God will see for Himself the lamb◦ for a burnt··offering, my son; and they went the two of them together.
And they came to▵ the place which God said to him; and Abraham built there the altar, and arranged the wood, and bound▵ Isaac his son, and set him on the altar on the wood.
And Abraham put··forth◦ his hand, and took the knife to slaughter his son.
And the angel of Jehovah called to▵ him out··of the heavens, and said, Abraham, Abraham; and he said, Behold me.
And He said, Put· not ·forth◦ thy hand to▵ the lad, and do not anything to him; for now I know that thou◦ fearest God, and thou hast not kept··back thy son, thine only··one, from Me.
And Abraham lifted his eyes, and saw, and behold a ram behind him, seized in a thicket by his horns; and Abraham went, and took the ram, and offered· it ·up for a burnt··offering instead of his son.
And Abraham called the name of that◦ place, Jehovah-will-see, as◦ it is said today, In the mountain Jehovah will see.
And the angel of Jehovah called to▵ Abraham a second time out··of the heavens,
and said, By Myself have I promised, says◦ Jehovah, for because of this thing which thou hast done, and hast not kept··back thy son, thine only··one,
that blessing, I will bless thee, and multiplying, I will multiply thy seed, as the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is on the lip of the sea; and thy seed shall possess the gate of thine enemies.
And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because▵ of that in which◦ thou hast obeyed My voice.
And Abraham returned to▵ his lads; and they rose··up, and went together to▵ Beer-sheba; and Abraham dwelt in Beer-sheba.
And it was, after these words, that it was··told to Abraham, saying, Behold, Milcah, she◦ also has given··birth to sons for Nahor thy brother:
Uz his firstborn, 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 bring··forth◦ for Nahor, Abraham’s brother.
And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, she◦ also gave··birth to Tebah, and Gaham, and Tahash, and Maachah.
