nkjv@Genesis:22:1 @ Now it came to pass after these things that God tested Abraham, and said to him, "Abraham!" And he said, "Here I am."
nkjv@Genesis:22:2 @ Then He said, "Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you."
nkjv@Genesis:22:3 @ 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 the wood for the burnt offering, and arose and went to the place of which God had told him.
nkjv@Genesis:22:4 @ Then on the third day Abraham lifted his eyes and saw the place afar off.
nkjv@Genesis:22:5 @ And Abraham said to his young men, "Stay here with the donkey; the lad and I will go yonder and worship, and we will come back to you."
nkjv@Genesis:22:6 @ So Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife, and the two of them went together.
nkjv@Genesis:22:7 @ 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 lamb for a burnt offering?"
nkjv@Genesis:22:8 @ And Abraham said, "My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering." So the two of them went together.
nkjv@Genesis:22:9 @ 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 laid him on the altar, upon the wood.
nkjv@Genesis:22:10 @ And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.
nkjv@Genesis:22:11 @ But the Angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, "Abraham, Abraham!" So he said, "Here I am."
nkjv@Genesis:22:12 @ And He said, "Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me."
nkjv@Genesis:22:13 @ 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.
nkjv@Genesis:22:14 @ And Abraham called the name of the place, The-LORD-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, "In the Mount of the LORD it shall be provided."
nkjv@Genesis:22:15 @ Then the Angel of the LORD called to Abraham a second time out of heaven,
nkjv@Genesis:22:16 @ and said: "By Myself I have sworn, says the LORD, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son--
nkjv@Genesis:22:17 @ blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies.
nkjv@Genesis:22:18 @ In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice."
nkjv@Genesis:22:19 @ So Abraham returned to his young men, and they rose and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba.
nkjv@Genesis:22:20 @ Now it came to pass after these things that it was told Abraham, saying, "Indeed Milcah also has borne children to your brother Nahor:
nkjv@Genesis:22:21 @ Huz his firstborn, Buz his brother, Kemuel the father of Aram,
nkjv@Genesis:22:22 @ Chesed, Hazo, Pildash, Jidlaph, and Bethuel."
nkjv@Genesis:22:23 @ And Bethuel begot Rebekah. These eight Milcah bore to Nahor, Abraham's brother.
nkjv@Genesis:22:24 @ His concubine, whose name was Reumah, also bore Tebah, Gaham, Thahash, and Maachah.
