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.”
