Genesis 22

22:1 And it came to pass after these things, that God tempted
 Abraham, and said to him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, [here]
 I [am].
22:2 And he said, Take now thy son, thy only [son] Isaac, whom
 thou lovest, and go into the land of Moriah; and offer him
 there for a burnt-offering upon one of the mountains which I
 will name to thee.
22:3 And Abraham rose early in the morning, and saddled his ass,
 and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and
 cleft the wood for the burnt-offering, and rose and went to the
 place which God had named to him.
22:4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw
 the place afar off.
22:5 And Abraham said to his young men, Abide you here with the
 ass, and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and return
 to you.
22:6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt-offering, and laid
 [it] upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and
 a knife: and they went both of them together.
22:7 And Isaac spoke to 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 a burnt-offering?
22:8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb
 for a burnt-offering: so they went both of them together.
22:9 And they came to the place which God had named to him; and
 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.
22:10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife
 to slay his son.
22:11 And the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven, and
 said, Abraham, Abraham. And he said, Here [am] I.
22:12 And he said, Lay not thy hand upon the lad, neither do
 thou any thing to him: for now I know that thou fearest God,
 seeing thou hast not withheld from me thy son, thy only [son].
22:13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold,
 behind [him] a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: And
 Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him for a
 burnt-offering in the stead of his son.
22:14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh:
 as it is said [to] this day, In the mount of the LORD it will
 be seen.
22:15 And the angel of the LORD called to Abraham from heaven
 the second time,
22:16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for
 because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy
 son, thy only [son]:
22:17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I
 will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven, and as the sand
 which [is] on the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the
 gate of his enemies;
22:18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be
 blessed: because thou hast obeyed my voice.
22:19 So Abraham returned to his young men, and they rose and
 went together to Beer-sheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beer-sheba.
22:20 And it came to pass after these things, that it was told
 to Abraham, saying, Behold, Milcah, she hath also borne
 children to thy brother Nahor;
22:21 Huz his first-born, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the
 father of Aram,
22:22 And Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and
22:23 And Bethuel begat Rebekah: these eight Milcah bore to
 Nahor Abraham's brother.
22:24 And his concubine, whose name [was] Reumah, she bore also
 Tebah, and Gaham, and Thahash, and Maachah.
