Genesis 22

22
1 After these things occurred, God tested Abraham, and he said to him, "Abraham, Abraham." And he answered, "Here I am."
2 He said to him: "Take your only begotten son Isaac, whom you love, and go into the land of vision. And there you shall offer him as a holocaust upon one of the mountains, which I will show to you."
3 And so Abraham, getting up in the night, harnessed his donkey, taking with him two youths, and his son Isaac. And when he had cut wood for the holocaust, he traveled toward the place, as God had instructed him.
4 Then, on the third day, lifting up his eyes, he saw the place at a distance.
5 And he said to his servants: "Wait here with the donkey. I and the boy will hurry further ahead to that place. After we have worshipped, will return to you."
6 He also took the wood for the holocaust, and he imposed it upon his son Isaac. And he himself carried in his hands fire and a sword. And as the two continued on together,
7 Isaac said to his father, "My father." And he answered, "What do you want, son?" "Behold," he said, "fire and wood. Where is the victim for the holocaust?"
8 But Abraham said, "God himself will provide the victim for the holocaust, my son." Thus they continued on together.
9 And they came to the place that God had shown to him. There he built an altar, and he set the wood in order upon it. And when he had bound his son Isaac, he laid him on the altar upon the pile of wood.
10 And he reached out his hand and took hold of the sword, in order to sacrifice his son.
11 And behold, an Angel of the Lord called out from heaven, saying, "Abraham, Abraham." And he answered, "Here I am."
12 And he said to him, "Do not extend your hand over the boy, and do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, since you have not spared your only begotten son for my sake."
13 Abraham lifted up his eyes, and he saw behind his back a ram among the thorns, caught by the horns, which he took and offered as a holocaust, instead of his son.
14 And he called the name of that place: 'The Lord Sees.' Thus, even to this day, it is said: 'On the mountain, the Lord will see.'
15 Then the Angel of the Lord called out to Abraham a second time from heaven, saying:
16 "By my own self, I have sworn, says the Lord. Because you have done this thing, and have not spared your only begotten son for my sake,
17 I will bless you, and I will multiply your offspring like the stars of heaven, and like the sand which is on the seashore. Your offspring will possess the gates of their enemies.
18 And in your offspring, all the nations of the earth will be blessed, because you obeyed my voice."
19 Abraham returned to his servants, and they went to Beersheba together, and he lived there.
20 After these things occurred, it was reported to Abraham that Milcah, likewise, had borne sons for his brother Nahor:
21 Uz, the firstborn, and Buz, his brother, and Kemuel, the father of the Syrians,
22 and Chesed, and Hazo, likewise Pildash, and Jidlaph,
23 as well as Bethuel, of whom was born Rebekah. These eight Milcah bore for Nahor, the brother of Abraham.
24 In truth, his concubine, named Reumah, bore Tebah, and Gaham, and Tahash, and Maacah.

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).
