Genesis 22
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And it was after these matters God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham”, and he said, “Here I am.” 2And he said to him: “Take your son your only one, Isaaq, whom you love, and you go to the land of the Amorites and offer him up there for a sacrifice on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.” 3And Abraham arose early at dawn and saddled his donkey and he took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and split wood for an offering and arose, and he went to the region about which God had told him. 4And the third day Abraham lifted his eyes and he saw that place from a distance. 5And he said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey and I and the boy will go there and we will worship and will return to you.” 6And Abraham took wood for the offering and he laid it on Isaaq his son, and he took fire in his hand and a knife and they both went as one. 7And Isaaq spoke to Abraham his father and he said, “Father”, and he said, “Here I am my son”, and he said to him, “Here is the fire and the wood; where is a lamb for an offering? 8And Abraham said, “God will show himself the Lamb for a sacrifice, my son”, and they both went as one.

9And they came to the region of which God had told him and Abraham built there the altar and he arranged the wood and he tied up Isaaq his son and he placed him on the altar on the wood. 10And Abraham reached his hand and he took the knife to slaughter his son.

11And the Angel of God called to him from Heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham” and he said, “Here I am.” 12And he said, “Do not stretch your hand against the boy and you shall not do anything to him, because now I have made known that you are in awe of God, for you have not kept your son, your only one, from me.” 13And Abraham lifted his eyes, and he saw and behold, one ram caught in the branches by his horns, and Abraham went and he took the ram and offered him up as an offering in place of his son. 14And Abraham called the name of that place “LORD JEHOVAH will appear” of which it is said today, “In this mountain LORD JEHOVAH will appear.”

15And the Angel of God called to Abraham the second time from Heaven, 16And he said, “By myself I have sworn, says LORD JEHOVAH, because you have made this response and you have not kept back your son, your only one, from me: 17To bless, I shall bless you, and to multiply, I shall multiply your seed as the stars of Heaven and like the sand that is upon the shore of the sea, and your seed shall inherit the lands of his enemies; 18And all of the people of the Earth shall be blessed in your seed, because you listened to my voice.” 19And Abraham returned to his young men and they stood and they went as one to Beersheba and Abraham dwelt in Beersheba.

20And it happened after these matters and it was shown to Abraham and they said to him, “Behold, Melka also gave birth to children by Nakhor your brother; 21To Uuts, his first born, and to his brother Buuz, and to Qemuyel, the father of Aram. 22And to Kasar, and to Khazu, and to Palrash, and to Yarlaph and to Bethuyel, 23And Bethuyel begot Raphqa; Melka gave birth to these eight by Nakhor the brother of Abraham.” 24And his concubine’s name was Ruma, and she bore also Tebakh, Gakham, Thakhash and Maaka.
