Bereshis 22

22
1And it came to pass after these things, that G-d did test Avraham, and said unto him, Avraham: and he said, Hineini (Behold, here I am). 2And He said, Take now thy son, thine ben yachid (only son) Yitzchak, whom thou lovest, and get thee into eretz Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of. 3And Avraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his donkey, and took two of his servants with him, and Yitzchak his son, and cut the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which G-d had told him. 4Then on Yom HaShlishi Avraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off. [1C 15:3] 5And Avraham said unto his servants, Abide ye here with the donkey; and I and the young man will go over there and nishtachaveh (we will worship) and we will come back again to you. 6And Avraham took atzei haolah (the wood of the burnt offering), and laid it upon Yitzchak his son; and he took the eish (fire) in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together. 7And Yitzchak spoke unto Avraham his father, and said, Avi (My father): and he said, Hineini, beni (Here am I, my son). And he said, Hinei, the eish (fire) and the wood: but where is the seh (lamb) for a burnt offering? [YESHAYAH 53:7] 8And Avraham said, My son, G-d will provide Himself a seh (lamb) for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together. 9And they came to the place which G-d had told him of; and Avraham built a mizbe'ach there, and laid the wood in order, and made the akedah (binding) of Yitzchak his son, and laid him on the mizbe'ach upon the wood. 10And Avraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son. 11And the Malach Hashem called unto him out of Shomayim, and said, Avraham, Avraham: and he said, Hineini. 12And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the young man, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest G-d, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine ben yachid from Me. 13And Avraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and hinei behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Avraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering TAKHAT (instead) of his son. [YESHAYAH 53:8] 14And Avraham called the name of that place Hashem Yireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of Hashem it shall be provided. 15And the Malach Hashem called unto Avraham out of Shomayim the second time, 16And said, By Myself have I sworn, saith Hashem, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine ben yachid: 17That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy zera as the stars of the skies, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy zera shall possess the gate of his enemies; 18And in thy zera shall kol goyei ha'aretz be blessed; because thou hast obeyed My voice. 19So Avraham returned unto his servants, and they rose up and went together to Beer Sheva; and Avraham dwelt at Beer Sheva. 20And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Avraham, saying, Hinei, Milcah, she hath also born children unto thy brother Nachor; 21Utz his bechor (firstborn), and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the father of Aram, 22And Kesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Yidlaph, and Betuel. 23And Betuel fathered Rivkah: these eight Milcah did bear to Nachor, Avraham's brother. 24And his pilegesh, whose name was Reumah, she bare also Tevach, and Gacham, and Tachash, and Maachah.

God Tests Abraham
1And it happened that after these things, God tested Abraham. And he said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” 2And he said, “Take your son, your only child, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains where#Or “that” I will tell you.” 3And Abraham rose up early in the morning and saddled his donkey. And he took two of his servants with him, and Isaac his son. And he chopped wood for a burnt offering. And he got up and went to the place which God had told him. 4On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and he saw the place at a distance. 5And Abraham said to his servants, “You stay here with the donkey, and I and the boy will go up there. We will worship, then we will return to you.” 6And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and placed it on Isaac his son. And he took the fire in his hand and the knife, and the two of them went together. 7And Isaac said to Abraham his father, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” And he said, “Here is the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” 8And Abraham said, “God will provide#Literally “God will see to it” or “God will see for himself” the lamb for a burnt offering, my son.” And the two of them went together.
9And they came to the place that God had told him. And Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood. Then he bound Isaac his son and placed him on the altar atop the wood. 10And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his son. 11And the angel of Yahweh called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham! Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” 12And he said, “Do not stretch out your hand against the boy; do not do anything to him. For now I know that you are one who fears#Literally “a fearer” God, since you have not withheld your son, your only child, from me.” 13And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked. And behold, a ram was caught in the thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it as a burnt offering in place of his son. 14And Abraham called the name of that place “Yahweh will provide,”#Literally “will see” for which reason#Literally “which” it is said today, “on the mountain of Yahweh it shall be provided.”#Literally “it/he shall be seen” 15And the angel of Yahweh called to Abraham a second time from heaven. 16And he said, “I swear by myself, declares Yahweh, that because you have done this thing and have not withheld your son, your only child, 17that I will certainly bless you and greatly multiply your offspring as the stars of heaven, and as the sand that is by the shore of the sea. And your offspring will take possession of the gate of his enemies. 18All the nations of the earth will be blessed through your offspring, because you have listened to my voice.” 19And Abraham returned to his servants, and they got up and went together to Beersheba. And Abraham lived in Beersheba.
20And it happened that after these things, it was told to Abraham, “Look, Milcah has also borne children to your brother Nahor: 21Uz his firstborn and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the father of Aram, 22and Kesed, Hazo, Pildash, Jidlaph, and Bethuel.” 23(Now, Bethuel fathered Rebekah). These eight Milcah bore to Nahor, the brother of Abraham. 24And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, also bore Tebah, Gaham, Tahash, and Maacah.
