Bible: Genesis 22:6-14

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, 1  and the two of them walked on together. 22:7 Isaac said to his father Abraham, 2 My father?” “What is it, 3  my son?” he replied. “Here is the fire and the wood,” Isaac said, 4 but where is the lamb for the burnt offering? 22:8 God will provide 5  for himself the lamb for the burnt offering, my son,” Abraham replied. The two of them continued on together.

22:9 When they came to the place God had told him about, Abraham built the altar there 6  and arranged the wood on it. Next he tied up 7  his son Isaac and placed him on the altar on top of the wood. 22:10 Then Abraham reached out his hand, took the knife, and prepared to slaughter 8  his son. 22:11 But the Lord’s angel 9  called to him from heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!” “Here I am!” he answered. 22:12 Do not harm the boy!” 10  the angel said. 11 Do not do anything to him, for now I know 12  that you fear 13  God because you did not withhold your son, your only son, from me.”

22:13 Abraham looked up 14  and saw 15  behind him 16  a ram caught in the bushes by its horns. So he 17  went over and got the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son. 22:14 And Abraham called the name of that place “The Lord provides.” 18  It is said to this day, 19 In the mountain of the Lord provision will be made.” 20
