22 Now it came about after these things, that God tested Abraham, and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.”2 He said, “Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I will tell you.”
9 Then they came to the place of which God had told him; and Abraham built the altar there and arranged the wood, and bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.10 Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.11 But the angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.”12 He said, “Do not stretch out your hand against the lad, and do nothing to him; for now I know that you [a]fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.”13 Then Abraham raised 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 place of his son.14 Abraham called the name of that place [b]The Lord Will Provide, as it is said to this day, “In the mount of the Lordit will [c]be provided.”
15 Then the angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time from heaven,16 and said, “By Myself I have sworn, declares the Lord, because you have done this thing and have not withheld your son, your only son,17 indeed I will greatly bless you, and I will greatly multiply your [d]seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your [e]seed shall possess the gate of [f]their enemies.18 In your [g]seed all the nations of the earth shall [h]be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”
