16 And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, behind a thicket, there was a ram caught in it by his horns.
17 And Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering, in the stead of his son.
18 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh; as it is said unto this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.
19 And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, and said,
20 Thus saith the Lord, I have sworn by myself, that because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only Isaac from me;
21 That in blessing I will bless thee; and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore.
22 And thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

24 And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Abraham, saying,
25 Behold, Milcah, she hath also borne children unto thy brother Nahor; Huz is his firstborn, and Buz is his brother.
26 And Kemuel is the father of Aram, and Chesed, and Haza, and Bildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel;

28 These eight Milcah did bear to Nahor, Abraham's brother; and his concubine, whose name was Reumah, she bare also Tebah, and Gaham, Thahash, and Maachah.

2 And Sarah died in Kirjatharba; the same is now called Hebron, in the land of Canaan.

4 And Abraham stood up from before his dead, and spake unto the sons of Heth, saying, I am a stranger and a sojourner with you; give me a possession of a burying-place with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight.
5 And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying unto him, Hear us, my lord; thou art a mighty prince among us; in the choicest of our sepulchers bury thou thy dead; none of us shall withhold from thee his sepulcher, but that thou mayest bury thy dead.
6 And Abraham stood up, and bowed himself to the people of the land, and to the children of Heth; and he communed with them, saying,

Jesus reveals himself to a notable Jewish scientist.
Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
