1It happened some time later that God put Abraham to the test. 'Abraham, Abraham!' he called. 'Here Iam,' he replied. 2God said, 'Take your son, your only son, your beloved Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, where youare to offer him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I shal point out to you.' 3Early next morning Abraham saddled his donkey and took with him two of his servants and his sonIsaac. He chopped wood for the burnt offering and started on his journey to the place which God had indicated tohim. 4On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance. 5Then Abraham said to his servants, 'Stay here with the donkey. The boy and I are going over there;we shal worship and then come back to you.' 6Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering, loaded it on Isaac, and carried in his own hands the fireand the knife. Then the two of them set out together. 7Isaac spoke to his father Abraham. 'Father?' he said. 'Yes, my son,' he replied. 'Look,' he said, 'hereare the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?' 8Abraham replied, 'My son, God himself wil provide the lamb for the burnt offering.' And the two ofthem went on together. 9When they arrived at the place which God had indicated to him, Abraham built an altar there, andarranged the wood. Then he bound his son and put him on the altar on top of the wood. 10Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to kill his son. 11But the angel of Yahweh cal ed to him from heaven. 'Abraham, Abraham!' he said. 'Here I am,' hereplied. 12'Do not raise your hand against the boy,' the angel said. 'Do not harm him, for now I know you fearGod. You have not refused me your own beloved son.' 13Then looking up, Abraham saw a ram caught by its horns in a bush. Abraham took the ram andoffered it as a burnt offering in place of his son. 14Abraham cal ed this place 'Yahweh provides', and hence the saying today: 'On the mountain Yahwehprovides.' 15The angel of Yahweh cal ed Abraham a second time from heaven. 16'I swear by my own self, Yahweh declares, that because you have done this, because you have notrefused me your own beloved son, 17I wil shower blessings on you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven andthe grains of sand on the seashore. Your descendants wil gain possession of the gates of their enemies. 18Al nations on earth wil bless themselves by your descendants, because you have obeyed mycommand.' 19Abraham went back to his servants, and together they set out for Beersheba, and Abraham settled inBeersheba. 20It happened some time later that Abraham received word that Milcah, too, had now borne sons to hisbrother Nahor: 21Uz his first-born, Buz his brother, Kemuel father of Aram, 22Chesed, Hazo, Pildash, Jidlaph, Bethuel 23(and Bethuel was the father of Rebekah). These were the eight children Milcah gave Nahor,Abraham's brother. 24He had a concubine named Reumah, and she too had children: Tebah, Gaham, Tahash andMaacah.
