Genesis Chapter 22

, , , -; , . 1 And it came to pass after these things, that God did prove Abraham, and said unto him: 'Abraham'; and he said: 'Here am I.'
- - - -, -, -, - ; , , , . 2 And He said: 'Take now thy son, thine only son, whom thou lovest, even Isaac, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt-offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.'
, -, - , ; , , , - -- . 3 And Abraham rose early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son; and he cleaved the wood for the burnt-offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.
, - ---. 4 On the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.
-, - -, , -; , . 5 And Abraham said unto his young men: 'Abide ye here with the ass, and I and the lad will go yonder; and we will worship, and come back to you.'
- , - , , - -; , . 6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt-offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took in his hand the fire and the knife; and they went both of them together.
- , , , ; , , , . 7 And Isaac spoke unto Abraham his father, and said: 'My father.' And he said: 'Here am I, my son.' And he said: 'Behold the fire and the wood; but where is the lamb for a burnt-offering?'
, , - , ; , . 8 And Abraham said: 'God will provide Himself the lamb for a burnt-offering, my son.' So they went both of them together.
, - - , -, -; , - , -, . 9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built the altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar, upon the wood.
-, -, , -. 10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
, -, , ; , . 11 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said: 'Abraham, Abraham.' And he said: 'Here am I.'
, - -, - , : , - , - -, . 12 And he said: 'Lay not thy hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him; for now I know that thou art a God-fearing man, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son, from Me.'
-, -, , ; -, . 13 And Abraham lifted up 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 stead of his son.
- , , , . 14 And Abraham called the name of that place Adonai-jireh; as it is said to this day: 'In the mount where the LORD is seen.'
, -, , -. 15 And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham a second time out of heaven,
, -: , - , , - -. 16 and said: 'By Myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son,
- , - , , - ; , . 17 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 seashore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
, , , . 18 and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast hearkened to My voice.'
-, - ; , . {} 19 So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beer-sheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beer-sheba. {P}
, , , : -, -- . 20 And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Abraham, saying: 'Behold, Milcah, she also hath borne children unto thy brother Nahor:
- , - , -, . 21 Uz his first-born, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the father of Aram;
- -, - -, , . 22 and Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel.'
, -; , . 23 And Bethuel begot Rebekah; these eight did Milcah bear to Nahor, Abraham's brother.
