Genesis 22:1–24

Abraham’s Faith Confirmed

22 Now it came to pass after these things that aGod tested Abraham, and said to him, “Abraham!”

And he said, “Here I am.”

Then He said, “Take now your son, byour only son Isaac, whom you clove, and go dto the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a eburnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.”

So Abraham rose early in the morning and saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son; and he split the wood for the burnt offering, and arose and went to the place of which God had told him. Then on the third day Abraham lifted his eyes and saw the place afar off. And Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; the 1lad and I will go yonder and worship, and we will fcome back to you.”

So Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and glaid it on Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife, and the two of them went together. But Isaac spoke to Abraham his father and said, “My father!”

And he said, “Here I am, my son.”

Then he said, “Look, the fire and the wood, but where is the 2lamb for a burnt offering?”

And Abraham said, “My son, God will provide for Himself the hlamb for a iburnt offering.” So the two of them went together.

Then they came to the place of which God had told him. And Abraham built an altar there and placed the wood in order; and he bound Isaac his son and jlaid him on the altar, upon the wood. 10 And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.

11 But the kAngel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!”

So he said, “Here I am.”

12 And He said, l“Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for mnow I know that you fear God, since you have not nwithheld your son, your only son, from Me.”

13 Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son. 14 And Abraham called the name of the place, 3The-Lord-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided.”

15 Then the Angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time out of heaven, 16 and said: o“By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son—17 blessing I will pbless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants qas the stars of the heaven rand as the sand which is on the seashore; and syour descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. 18 tIn your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, ubecause you have obeyed My voice.” 19 So Abraham returned to his young men, and they rose and went together to vBeersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba.

The Family of Nahor

20 Now it came to pass after these things that it was told Abraham, saying, “Indeed wMilcah also has borne children to your brother Nahor: 21 xHuz his firstborn, Buz his brother, Kemuel the father yof Aram, 22 Chesed, Hazo, Pildash, Jidlaph, and Bethuel.” 23 And zBethuel begot 4Rebekah. These eight Milcah bore to Nahor, Abraham’s brother. 24 His concubine, whose name was Reumah, also bore Tebah, Gaham, Thahash, and Maachah.
