Genesis 22

22
1And after these things God did proue Abraham, and said vnto him, Abraham. Who answered, Here am I. 2And he said, Take nowe thine onely sonne Izhak whom thou louest, and get thee vnto the land of Moriah, and offer him there for a burnt offering vpon one of the mountaines, which I will shewe thee. 3Then Abraham rose vp early in the morning, and sadled his asse, and tooke two of his seruants with him, and Izhak his sonne, and cloue wood for the burnt offering, and rose vp and went to the place, which God had tolde him. 4Then the third day Abraham lift vp his eyes, and sawe the place afarre off, 5And said vnto his seruants, Abide you here with the asse: for I and the childe will go yonder and worship, and come againe vnto you. 6Then Abraham tooke the wood of the burnt offering, and layed it vpon Izhak his sonne, and he tooke the fire in his hand, and the knife: and they went both together. 7Then spake Izhak vnto Abraham his father, and said, My father. And he answered, Here am I, my sonne. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood, but where is the lambe for ye burnt offring? 8Then Abraham answered, My sonne, God will prouide him a lambe for a burnt offering: so they went both together. 9And when they came to the place which God had shewed him, Abraham builded an altar there, and couched ye wood, and bound Izhak his sonne and laid him on the altar vpon the wood. 10And Abraham stretching forth his hand, tooke the knife to kill his sonne. 11But the Angel of the Lord called vnto him from heauen, saying, Abraham, Abraham. And he answered, Here am I. 12Then he said, Lay not thine hand vpon the childe, neither doe any thing vnto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing for my sake thou hast not spared thine onely sonne. 13And Abraham lifting vp his eyes, looked: and behold, there was a ramme behind him caught by the hornes in a bush. then Abraham went and tooke the ramme, and offered him vp for a burnt offering in the steade of his sonne. 14And Abraham called the name of that place, Iehouah-ijreh. as it is said this day, In the mount will the Lord be seene. 15And the Angel of the Lord cryed vnto Abraham from heauen the second time, 16And saide, By my selfe haue I sworne (saith ye Lord) because thou hast done this thing, and hast not spared thine onely sonne, 17Therefore will I surely blesse thee, and will greatly multiplie thy seede, as the starres of the heauen, and as the sand which is vpon the sea shore, and thy seede shall possesse the gate of his enemies. 18And in thy seede shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because thou hast obeyed my voyce. 19Then turned Abraham againe vnto his seruants, and they rose vp and went together to Beer-sheba: and Abraham dwelt at Beer-sheba. 20And after these things one tolde Abraham, saying, Beholde Milcah, she hath also borne children vnto thy brother Nahor: 21To wit, Vz his eldest sonne, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the father of Aram, 22And Chesed and Hazo, and Pildash, and Iidlaph, and Bethuel. 23And Bethuel begate Rebekah: these eight did Milcah beare to Nahor Abrahams brother. 24And his concubine called Reumah, she bare also Tebah, and Gahan, and Thahash and Maachah.

The Sacrifice of Isaac
1After these things #1 Cor. 10:13; Heb. 11:17; James 1:12, 13; 1 Pet. 1:6, 7God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” 2He said, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to #2 Chr. 3:1the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” 3So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac. And he cut the wood for the burnt offering and arose and went to the place of which God had told him. 4On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place from afar. 5Then Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; I and the boy#22:5 Or young man; also verse 12 will go over there and worship and come again to you.” 6And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and #[John 19:17]laid it on Isaac his son. And he took in his hand the fire and the knife. So they went both of them together. 7And Isaac said to his father Abraham, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” He said, “Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?” 8Abraham said, #[John 1:29, 36; 1 Pet. 1:19; Rev. 5:12]“God will provide for himself the lamb for a burnt offering, my son.” So they went both of them together.
9When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built the altar there and laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and #Heb. 11:17; James 2:21laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. 10Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to slaughter his son. 11But the angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” 12He said, #[Mic. 6:7, 8] “Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him, for #[ch. 26:5]now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me.” 13And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him was a ram, caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son. 14So Abraham called the name of that place, #ver. 8“The Lord will provide”;#22:14 Or will see as it is said to this day, “On the mount of the Lord it shall be provided.”#22:14 Or he will be seen
15And the angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time from heaven 16and said, #Ps. 105:9; Luke 1:73; Heb. 6:13“By myself I have sworn, declares the Lord, because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17I will surely bless you, and I will surely multiply your offspring #Jer. 33:22; See ch. 15:5 as the stars of heaven and #See ch. 13:16 as the sand that is on the seashore. And your offspring shall possess #ch. 24:60; Ps. 127:5the gate of his#22:17 Or their enemies, 18and #ch. 12:3; 18:18; 26:4; Gal. 3:8; Cited Acts 3:25 in your offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, #ver. 3; ch. 26:5because you have obeyed my voice.” 19So Abraham returned to his young men, and they arose and went together to #ch. 21:31Beersheba. And Abraham lived at #ch. 21:31Beersheba.
20Now after these things it was told to Abraham, “Behold, #ch. 11:29Milcah also has borne children to your brother Nahor: 21#Job 1:1 Uz his firstborn, #Jer. 25:23Buz his brother, Kemuel the father of Aram, 22Chesed, Hazo, Pildash, Jidlaph, and Bethuel.” 23(#ch. 24:15Bethuel fathered Rebekah.) These eight Milcah bore to Nahor, Abraham’s brother. 24Moreover, his concubine, whose name was Reumah, bore Tebah, Gaham, Tahash, and Maacah.
