Hebrews 11:17-19 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

17 Faith operated powerfully in Abraham for when he was put to the test he offered up Isaac. Even though he received God’s promises[a] of descendants, he was willing[b] to offer up his only son! 18 For God had promised,

“Through your son Isaac your lineage will carry on your name.”[c]

19 Abraham’s faith made it logical to him that God could raise Isaac from the dead, and symbolically,[d] that’s exactly what happened.


  1. Hebrews 11:17 The Aramaic can be translated “he received the royal-proclamation,” the Aramaic word for “promise.”
  2. Hebrews 11:17 Or “he attempted to offer up.”
  3. Hebrews 11:18 Or “in Isaac seed will be named for you.” See Gen. 21:12.
  4. Hebrews 11:19 Or “Isaac was given to him as a parable.”
