Chapter 22

Abraham commanded to offer Isaac -- His willingness accepted -- Relieved by divine interposition -- Names of Nahor's children.

1)And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempttry Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham:; and heAbraham said, Behold, here am I am.

2)And hethe Lord said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering, upon one of the mountains of which I will tell thee of.

3)And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and

4)And clave the wood for the burnt offering,; and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.

45)Then on the third day, Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.

56)And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide yeyou here with the ass;, and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you again.

67)And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his sonback; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife, and Isaac his son; and they went both of them together.

78)And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father:father! andAnd he said, Here am I, my son.

9)And he said, Behold the fire and the wood:; but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?

810)And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering:. soSo they went both of them together. 9)And; and they came to the place of which God had told him of; and.

11)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.

1012)And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

1113)And the angel of the LORDLord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham,Abraham! Abraham! And Abraham: and he said, Here am I.

1214)And hethe angel said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thinganything unto him: for;

15)For now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only sonIsaac from me.

1316)And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold, behind hima thicket, there was a ram caught in a thicketit by his horns: and.

17)And Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering, in the stead of his son.

1418)And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh:Jehovah-jireh; as it is said tounto this day, In the mount of the LORDLord it shall be seen.

1519)And the angel of the LORDLord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, 16)And and said, By myself have I sworn,

20)Thus saith the LORDLord, forI have sworn by myself, that because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:Isaac from me;

1721)That in blessing I will bless thee,; and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; andseashore.

22)And thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; 18)And and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

1923)So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and went together to BeershebaBeer-sheba; and Abraham dwelt at BeershebaBeer-sheba.

2024)And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Abraham, saying,

25)Behold, Milcah, she hath also bornborne children unto thy brother Nahor; 21) Huz is his firstborn, and Buz is his brother, and.

26)And Kemuel is the father of Aram, 22)And and Chesed, and HazoHaza, and PildashBildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel.;

2327)And Bethuel begat Rebekah: these.
