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.

Genesis 22
1¶ And it came to pass after these things that God proved Abraham and said unto him, Abraham; and he said, Behold, here I am.
2And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou dost love, and go to the land of Moriah and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.
3¶ And Abraham rose up early in the morning and saddled his ass and took two of his young men with him and Isaac his son, and cut the wood for the burnt offering and rose up and went unto the place of which God had told him.
4Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place afar off.
5And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide here with the ass, and I and the lad will go yonder and worship and come again to you.
6And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it upon Isaac, his son; and he took the fire in his hand and the knife; and they both went together.
7Then 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 the burnt offering?
8And Abraham answered, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering, so they both went together.
9And when they came to the place which God had told him of, Abraham built an altar there and laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
10And Abraham stretched forth his hand and took the knife to slay his son.
11¶ Then the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven and said, Abraham, Abraham; and he said, Here am I.
12And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou anything unto him; for now I know that thou doest fear God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.
13And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked and beheld behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns; and Abraham went and took the ram and offered him up for a burnt offering instead of his son.
14And Abraham called the name of that place The Lord Shall See (YHWH-jireh). Therefore it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.
15¶ And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time
16and said, By myself I have sworn, said the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son;
17that 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 sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gates of his enemies;
18and in thy seed shall all the Gentiles of the earth be blessed because thou hast hearkened unto my voice.
19So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba.
20¶ And it came to pass after these things that it was told Abraham, saying, Behold, Milcah, she has also born sons unto thy brother Nahor;
21Huz, his firstborn, and Buz, his brother, and Kemuel, the father of Aram
22and Chesed and Hazo and Pildash and Jidlaph and Bethuel.
23And Bethuel begat Rebekah. Milcah gave birth to these eight unto Nahor, Abraham’s brother.
24And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, also gave birth to Tebah and Gaham and Thahash and Maachah.
