So he said, “Here I am.”

12 And He said, (F)“Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for (G)now I know that you fear God, since you have not (H)withheld your son, your only son, from Me.”

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, [b]The-Lord-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided.”
