Bible: Genesis 22:3-8

22:3 Early in the morning Abraham got up and saddled his donkey. 1  He took two of his young servants with him, along with his son Isaac. When he had cut the wood for the burnt offering, he started out 2  for the place God had spoken to him about.

22:4 On the third day Abraham caught sight of 3  the place in the distance. 22:5 So he 4  said to his servants, “You two stay 5  here with the donkey while 6  the boy and I go up there. We will worship 7  and then return to you.” 8 

22:6 Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and put it on his son Isaac. Then he took the fire and the knife in his hand, 9  and the two of them walked on together. 22:7 Isaac said to his father Abraham, 10 My father?” “What is it, 11  my son?” he replied. “Here is the fire and the wood,” Isaac said, 12 but where is the lamb for the burnt offering? 22:8 God will provide 13  for himself the lamb for the burnt offering, my son,” Abraham replied. The two of them continued on together.
