Genesis 22

22
1And it came to pass after these things, that God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] did tempt Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will], and said unto him, Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will]: and he said, Behold, [here] I [am].
2And he said, Take now youri son, youri only [son] Yitz’chak [Laughter], whom youi love, and get youi into the land of Moriyah [chosen by Yehovah] (pronounced, more-ee-Yah); and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell youi of.
3And Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] rose up early in the morning, and saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and Yitz’chak [Laughter] his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] had told him.
4Then on the third day Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.
5And Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] said unto his young men, Abide youf here with the donkey; and I and the boy will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.
6And Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid [it] upon Yitz’chak [Laughter] his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.
7And Yitz’chak [Laughter] spoke unto Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] 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?
8And Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] said, My son, God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
9And they came to the place which God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] had told him of; and Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Yitz’chak [Laughter] his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
10And Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
11And the angel of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) called unto him out of heaven, and said, Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will], Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will]: and he said, Here [am] I.
12And he said, Lay not youri hand upon the boy, neither do youi anything unto him: for now I know that youi fear God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered], seeing youi have not withheld youri son, youri only [son] from me.
13And Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind [him] a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will]
14And Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] called the name of that place Yehovah-Yir’eh [Jehovah will see (to it), Jehovah provides]: as it is said [to] this day, In the mount of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) it shall be seen.
15And the angel of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) called unto Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] out of heaven the second time,
16And said, By myself have I sworn, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), for because youi have done this thing, and have not withheld youri son, youri only [son]:
17That in blessing I will bless youi, and in multiplying I will multiply youri seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which [is] upon the sea shore; and youri seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
18And in youri seed shall all the nations of the earth be Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous); because youi have obeyed my voice.
19So Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] returned unto his young men, and they rose up and went together to Be’er-Sheva (well of the sevenfold oath); and Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] dwelt at Be’er-Sheva (well of the sevenfold oath).
20And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will], saying, Behold, Milkah (Counsel; Queen), she has also born children unto youri brother Nokhor (a snort, a snorting; charred, scorched);
21‘Utz (counsel; wooded) his firstborn, and Buz [contempt] (contempt) his brother, and K’mu’el (congregation of/raised of God) the father of Aram (citadel, palace; elevated, lifted up).
22And Kesed (increase), and Hazo (vision), and Pildash (flame of fire), and Yidlaf (weeping), and B’tu’el (meaning disputed).
23And B’tu’el (meaning disputed) begat (to be father of; be ancestor of) Rivkah (Tied Up; Secured): these eight Milkah (Counsel; Queen) did bear to Nokhor (a snort, a snorting; charred, scorched), Avraham’s [exalted father/Fly They Will] brother.
24And his concubine, whose name was Re’umah (exalted, elevated, lifted up), she bore also Tevach (murder; butcher; slaughter), and Gacham (burning; flame, bursting forth), and Tachash (that makes haste; that keeps silence), and Ma’akhah [oppression] (Oppression; Squeezer).

CHAPTER 22
1And after that these things were done, God assayed Abraham, and said to him, Abraham! Abraham! He answered, I am present.
2God said to him, Take thine one begotten son, whom thou lovest, Isaac; and go into the land of vision, and offer thou him there into burnt sacrifice on one of the hills which I shall show to thee.
3Therefore Abraham rose by night, and saddled his ass, and led with him two young men, and Isaac his son; and when he had hewn trees into burnt sacrifice, he went to the place which God had commanded to him.
4Forsooth in the third day, he raised [up] his eyes, and saw a place afar;
5and he said to his young men, Abide ye here with the ass, I and the child#22:5 According to Jewish tradition, Isaac was probably 25 years old at this time (Gehman/Josephus). shall go thither; and after that we have worshipped, we shall turn again to you.
6And he took the wood of burnt sacrifice, and laid it on Isaac his son; forsooth he bare fire, and a sword in his hands. And when they twain [or two] went together,
7Isaac said to his father, My father! And he answered, What wilt thou, son? He said, Lo! fire and wood, where is the beast of burnt sacrifice?
8Abraham said, My son, God shall purvey to him the beast of burnt sacrifice. Therefore they went together,
9and came to the place which God had showed to him; in which place Abraham builded an altar, and dressed [the] wood above; and when he had bound altogether Isaac, his son, he laid Isaac on the altar, upon the heap of wood.
10And he held forth his hand, and took the sword to sacrifice his son.
11And lo! the angel of the Lord cried from heaven, and said, Abraham! Abraham! Which answered, I am present.
12And the angel said to him, Hold thou not forth thine hand on the child, neither do thou anything of harm to him; now I know that thou dreadest God, and sparedest not thine one begotten son for me.
13Abraham raised [up] his eyes, and he saw behind him a ram cleaving by the horns among briars, which he took, and offered as burnt sacrifice for the son.
14And he called the name of that place The Lord seeth; wherefore it is said, till to this day, The Lord shall see in the hill.
15Forsooth the angel of the Lord called to Abraham the second time from heaven,
16and said, The Lord saith, I have sworn by myself, for thou hast done this thing, and hast not spared thine one begotten son for me,
17I shall bless thee, and I shall multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven, and as the gravel, either sand, which is in the brink of the sea; thy seed shall wield the gates of his enemies;
18and all the folks of [the] earth shall be blessed in thy seed, for thou obeyedest to my voice.
19Abraham turned again to his young men, and they went to Beersheba together, and he dwelled there.
20And so when these things were done, it was told to Abraham that also Milcah had borne sons to Nahor his brother;
21Huz the first begotten, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the father of Aram,
22and Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel,
23of whom Rebecca was born; Milcah childed these eight to Nahor, the brother of Abraham.
24Forsooth his concubine, or secon-dary wife, Reumah by name, childed Tebah, and Gaham, and Thahash, and Maachah.
