11 But the (A)Angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!”

So he said, “Here I am.”

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

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. 14 And Abraham called the name of the place, [a]The-Lord-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided.”

15 Then the Angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time out of heaven, 16 and said: (E)“By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son 17 blessing I will (F)bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants (G)as the stars of the heaven (H)and as the sand which is on the seashore; and (I)your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. 18 (J)In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, (K)because you have obeyed My voice.”
