Genesis 22:20 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

From this interposition of God, Abraham called the place Jehovah-jireh, "Jehovah sees," i.e., according to Genesis 22:8, provides, providet; so that (אשׁר, as in Genesis 13:16, is equivalent to כּן על, Genesis 10:9) men are still accustomed to say, "On the mountain where Jehovah appears" (יראה), from which the name Moriah arose. The rendering "on the mount of Jehovah it is provided" is not allowable, for the Niphal of the verb does not mean provideri, but "appear." Moreover, in this case the medium of God's seeing or interposition was His appearing.
