5 Then on the third day, Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place afar off.

6 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide you here with the ass, and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come to you again.

7 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon his back; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife, and Isaac his son; and they went both of them together.

8 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father! And he said, Here am I, my son.

9 And he said, Behold the fire and the wood; but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?

10 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering. So they went both of them together; and they came to the place of which God had told him.

11 And Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar, upon the wood.

12 And Abraham stretched forth his hand and took the knife to slay his son.

13 And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham! Abraham! And Abraham said, Here am I.

14 And the angel said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou anything unto him;

15 For now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only Isaac from me.
