1Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, "Abraham!" "Here I am," he replied.1After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.”1Now it came about after these things, that God tested Abraham, and said to him, "Abraham!" And he said, "Here I am."1And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.1After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, "Abraham!"" Here I am," he answered."
2Then God said, "Take your son, your only son, whom you love--Isaac--and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you."2He said, “Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.”2He said, "Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I will tell you."2And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.2Take your son," He said, "your only son Isaac, whom you love, go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about."
3Early the next morning Abraham got up and loaded his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about.3So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him, and his son Isaac. And he cut the wood for the burnt offering and arose and went to the place of which God had told him.3So Abraham rose early in the morning and saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him and Isaac his son; and he split wood for the burnt offering, and arose and went to the place of which God had told him.3And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.3So Abraham got up early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took with him two of his young men and his son Isaac.

5He said to his servants, "Stay here with the donkey while I and the boy go over there. We will worship and then we will come back to you."5Then Abraham said to his young men, “Stay here with the donkey; I and the boy will go over there and worship and come again to you.”5Abraham said to his young men, "Stay here with the donkey, and I and the lad will go over there; and we will worship and return to you."5And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.5Then Abraham said to his young men, "Stay here with the donkey. The boy and I will go over there to worship; then we'll come back to you."
6Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and placed it on his son Isaac, and he himself carried the fire and the knife.

7Isaac spoke up and said to his father Abraham, "Father?" "Yes, my son?" Abraham replied. "The fire and wood are here," Isaac said, "but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?"7And Isaac said to his father Abraham, “My father!” And he said, “Here I am, my son.” He said, “Behold, the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?”7Isaac spoke to Abraham his father and said, "My father!"

12"Do not lay a hand on the boy," he said. "Do not do anything to him.

For now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your only son from Me."
