22:3And Abraham started up early in the morning and saddled his ass, and he took two of his youths with him, and his son Isaac. And he split wood for a burnt offering, and rose up and went to the place which God had said to him.
22:4And on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place from a distance.
22:5And Abraham said to his young men, You stay here with the ass. I and the boy will go on to that place , that we may worship, and may return to you.
22:6And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on his son Isaac; and he took the fire and the knife in his hand. And the two went together.
22:7And Isaac spoke to his father Abraham and said, My father. And he said, Behold me. And he said, Behold, the fire and the wood! But where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
22:8And Abraham said, My son, God will see to the lamb for Himself, for a burnt offering. And the two of them went together.

22:11And the Angel of Jehovah called to him from the heavens and said, Abraham! And he said, Behold me.
22:12And He said, Do not lay your hand on the boy, nor do anything to him. For now I know that you are a God-fearer, and you have not withheld your son, your only one, from Me.

22:15And the Angel of Jehovah called to Abraham out of the heavens a second time.
22:16And He said, I have sworn by Myself, declares Jehovah, that on account of this thing you have done, and not have withheld your son, your only son,
22:17that blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is on the shore of the sea. And your Seed shall possess the gate of His enemies.
22:18And in your Seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed because you have obeyed My voice.
22:19And Abraham returned to his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beersheba. And Abraham lived at Beersheba.

22:21Uz, his firstborn, Buz, and his brother Kemuel, the father of Aram,
22:22and Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel.
