3 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 wood for the burnt offering, and arose and went to the place of which God had told him.
6 Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and alaid it on Isaac his son, and he took in his hand the fire and the knife. So the two of them walked on together.
7 Isaac spoke to Abraham his father and said, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” And he said, “Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the alamb for the burnt offering?”
8 Abraham said, “God will 1provide for Himself the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” So the two of them walked on together.
11 But athe angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.”
13 Then Abraham raised his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him a ram caught in the thicket by his horns; and Abraham went and took the ram and offered him up for a burnt offering in the place of his son.
16 and said, “aBy Myself I have sworn, declares the Lord, because you have done this thing and have not withheld your son, your only son,
17 indeed I will greatly bless you, and I will greatly amultiply your 1seed as the stars of the heavens and as bthe sand which is on the seashore; and cyour 1seed shall possess the gate of 2their enemies.
19 aSo Abraham returned to his young men, and they arose and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham lived at Beersheba.
24 His concubine, whose name was Reumah, 1also bore Tebah and Gaham and Tahash and Maacah.
