And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the 2lamb for a burnt offering?
And they came to the jplace which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and klaid him on the altar upon the wood.
And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
And he said, mLay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now nI know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.
¶And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,
That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying sI will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea 4shore; and thy seed shall possess tthe gate of his enemies;
