When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built the altar there and laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and (A)laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. 10 Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to slaughter 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, (B)“Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him, for (C)now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me.” 13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, behind him was a ram, caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son. 14 So Abraham called the name of that place, (D)“The Lord will provide”;[a] as it is said to this day, “On the mount of the Lord it shall be provided.”[b]
