Genesis 22:19 Meaning and Commentary

Genesis 22:19

So Abraham returned to his young men
He had left at a certain place with the ass, while he and Isaac went to the mount to worship; and who stayed there till he came to them, according to his order, ( Genesis 22:5 ) ; no mention is made of Isaac, but there is no doubt that he returned with Abraham, since we hear of him afterwards in his house; for as to what the Targum of Jonathan says, it cannot be depended on, that the angels took Isaac and brought him to the school of Shem the great, and there he was three years: and they rose up, and went together to Beersheba;
that is, when Abraham and Isaac came to the place where the young men were, they got up and proceeded on in their journey along with them to Beersheba, from whence Abraham came, and where he had for some time lived: and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba;
there he continued for some time afterwards, and but for a time, for in the next chapter we hear of him at Hebron, ( Genesis 23:2 ) .
