Genesis 22:1-14

CEB 1 After these events, God tested Abraham and said to him, "Abraham!" Abraham answered, "I'm here." NRS 1 After these things God tested Abraham. He said to him, "Abraham!" And he said, "Here I am." CEB 2 God said, "Take your son, your only son whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah. Offer him up as an entirely burned offering there on one of the mountains that I will show you." NRS 2 He said, "Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains that I shall show you." CEB 3 Abraham got up early in the morning, harnessed his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, together with his son Isaac. He split the wood for the entirely burned offering, set out, and went to the place God had described to him. NRS 3 So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac; he cut the wood for the burnt offering, and set out and went to the place in the distance that God had shown him. CEB 4 On the third day, Abraham looked up and saw the place at a distance. NRS 4 On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place far away. CEB 5 Abraham said to his servants, "Stay here with the donkey. The boy and I will walk up there, worship, and then come back to you." NRS 5 Then Abraham said to his young men, "Stay here with the donkey; the boy and I will go over there; we will worship, and then we will come back to you." CEB 6 Abraham took the wood for the entirely burned offering and laid it on his son Isaac. He took the fire and the knife in his hand, and the two of them walked on together. NRS 6 Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on his son Isaac, and he himself carried the fire and the knife. So the two of them walked on together. CEB 7 Isaac said to his father Abraham, "My father?" Abraham said, "I'm here, my son." Isaac said, "Here is the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the entirely burned offering?" NRS 7 Isaac said to his father Abraham, "Father!" And he said, "Here I am, my son." He said, "The fire and the wood are here, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?" CEB 8 Abraham said, "The lamb for the entirely burned offering? God will see to it, my son." The two of them walked on together. NRS 8 Abraham said, "God himself will provide the lamb for a burnt offering, my son." So the two of them walked on together. CEB 9 They arrived at the place God had described to him. Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He tied up his son Isaac and laid him on the altar on top of the wood. NRS 9 When they came to the place that God had shown him, Abraham built an altar there and laid the wood in order. He bound his son Isaac, and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. CEB 10 Then Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to kill his son as a sacrifice. NRS 10 Then Abraham reached out his hand and took the knife to kill his son. CEB 11 But the LORD's messenger called out to Abraham from heaven, "Abraham? Abraham?" Abraham said, "I'm here." NRS 11 But the angel of the Lord called to him from heaven, and said, "Abraham, Abraham!" And he said, "Here I am." CEB 12 The messenger said, "Don't stretch out your hand against the young man, and don't do anything to him. I now know that you revere God and didn't hold back your son, your only son, from me." NRS 12 He said, "Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from me." CEB 13 Abraham looked up and saw a single ram caught by its horns in the dense underbrush. Abraham went over, took the ram, and offered it as an entirely burned offering instead of his son. NRS 13 And Abraham looked up and saw a ram, caught in a thicket by its horns. Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son. CEB 14 Abraham named that place “the LORD sees.” That is the reason people today say, "On this mountain the LORD is seen." NRS 14 So Abraham called that place "The Lord will provide"; as it is said to this day, "On the mount of the Lord it shall be provided."
