Genesis 22

22
The Offering of Isaac
1Now it came about after these things, that God tested Abraham, and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” 2Then He said, “Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I will tell you.” 3So Abraham got up early in the morning and saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him and his son Isaac; and he split wood for the burnt offering, and set out and went to the place of which God had told him. 4On the third day Abraham raised his eyes and saw the place from a distance. 5Then Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey, and I and the boy will go over there; and we will worship and return to you.” 6And Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and laid it on his son Isaac, and he took in his hand the fire and the knife. So the two of them walked on together. 7Isaac spoke to his father Abraham and said, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” And he said, “Look, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?” 8Abraham said, “God will #Lit seeprovide for Himself the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” So the two of them walked on together.
9Then they came to the place of which God had told him; and Abraham built the altar there and arranged the wood, and bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. 10And Abraham reached out with his hand and took the knife to #I.e., following prescribed ritualslaughter 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, “Do not reach out your hand against the boy, and do not do anything to him; for now I know that you #Or revere; lit are a fearer of Godfear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.” 13Then Abraham raised his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him was a ram caught in the thicket by its horns; and Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering in the place of his son. 14And Abraham named that place #Heb YHWH-jireh; lit the Lord will seeThe Lord Will Provide, as it is said to this day, “On the mountain of the Lord it will #Lit be seenbe provided.”
15Then the angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time from heaven, 16and said, “By Myself I have sworn, declares the Lord, because you have done this thing and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17indeed I will greatly bless you, and I will greatly multiply your #Or descendantsseed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand, which is on the seashore; and your #Or descendantsseed shall possess the gate of #Lit histheir enemies. 18And in your #Or descendantsseed all the nations of the earth shall #Or bless themselvesbe blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” 19So Abraham returned to his young men, and they got up and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham lived in Beersheba.
20Now it came about after these things, that Abraham was told, saying, “Behold, Milcah #Lit she alsoalso has borne children to your brother Nahor: 21Uz his firstborn, Buz his brother, Kemuel (the father of Aram), 22Chesed, Hazo, Pildash, Jidlaph, and Bethuel”— 23and it was Bethuel who fathered Rebekah. These eight Milcah bore to Nahor, Abraham’s brother. 24His concubine, whose name was Reumah, #Lit she alsoalso gave birth to Tebah, Gaham, Tahash, and Maacah.

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.
