ND it came to pass after these things that God tempted Abraam, and said to him, Abraam, Abraam; and he said, Lo! I [am here]. 2 And he said, Take thy son, the beloved one, whom thou hast loved-- Isaac, and go into the high land, and offer him there for a whole-burnt-offering on one of the mountains which I will tell thee of. 3 And Abraam rose up in the morning and saddled his ass, and he took with him two servants, and Isaac his son, and having split wood for a whole-burnt-offering, he arose and departed, and came to the place of which God spoke to him, 4 on the third day; and Abraam having lifted up his eyes, saw the place afar off. 5 And Abraam said to his servants, Sit ye here with the ass, and I and the lad will proceed thus far, and having worshiped we will return to you. 6 And Abraam took the wood of the whole-burnt-offering, and laid it on Isaac his son, and he took into his hands both the fire and the knife, and the two went together. 7 And Isaac said to Abraam his father, Father. And he said, What is it, son? And he said, Behold the fire and the wood, where is the sheep for a whole-burnt-offering? 8 And Abraam said, God will provide himself a sheep for a whole-burnt-offering, [my] son. And both having gone together, 9 came to the place which God spoke of to him; and there Abraam built the altar, and laid the wood on it, and having bound the feet of Isaac his son together, he laid him on the altar upon the wood.

ΚΑΙ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὰ ρήματα ταῦτα ὁ Θεός ἐπείρασε τὸν ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· ῾Αβραάμ, ῾Αβραάμ. ὁ δὲ εἶπεν· ἰδοὺ ἐγώ. 2 καὶ εἶπε· λαβὲ τὸν υἱόν σου τὸν ἀγαπητόν, ὃν ἠγάπησας, τὸν ᾿Ισαάκ, καὶ πορεύθητι εἰς τὴν γῆν τὴν ὑψηλὴν καὶ ἀνένεγκον αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ εἰς ὁλοκάρπωσιν ἐφ᾿ ἓν τῶν ὀρέων, ὧν ἄν σοι εἴπω. 3 ἀναστὰς δὲ ῾Αβραὰμ τὸ πρωῒ ἐπέσαξε τὴν ὄνον αὐτοῦ· παρέλαβε δὲ μεθ᾿ ἑαυτοῦ δύο παῖδας καὶ ᾿Ισαὰκ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ σχίσας ξύλα εἰς ὁλοκάρπωσιν, ἀναστὰς ἐπορεύθη καὶ ἦλθεν ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον, ὃν εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ Θεός, τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ. 4 καὶ ἀναβλέψας ῾Αβραὰμ τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς αὐτοῦ, εἶδε τὸν τόπον μακρόθεν. 5 καὶ εἶπεν ῾Αβραὰμ τοῖς παισὶν αὐτοῦ· καθίσατε αὐτοῦ μετὰ τῆς ὄνου, ἐγὼ δὲ καὶ τὸ παιδάριον διελευσόμεθα ἕως ὧδε καὶ προσκυνήσαντες ἀναστρέψομεν πρὸς ὑμᾶς. 6 ἔλαβε δὲ ῾Αβραὰμ τὰ ξύλα τῆς ὁλοκαρπώσεως καὶ ἐπέθηκεν ᾿Ισαὰκ τῷ υἱῷ αὐτοῦ· ἔλαβε δὲ μετὰ χεῖρας καὶ τὸ πῦρ καὶ τὴν μάχαιραν, καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν οἱ δύο ἅμα. 7 εἶπε δὲ ᾿Ισαὰκ πρὸς ῾Αβραὰμ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ· πάτερ. ὁ δὲ εἶπε· τί ἐστι, τέκνον; εἶπε δέ· ἰδοὺ τὸ πῦρ καὶ τὰ ξύλα· ποῦ ἐστι τὸ πρόβατον τὸ εἰς ὁλοκάρπωσιν; 8 εἶπε δὲ ῾Αβραάμ· ὁ Θεὸς ὄψεται ἑαυτῷ πρόβατον εἰς ὁλοκάρπωσιν, τέκνον. πορευθέντες δὲ ἀμφότεροι ἅμα, 9 ἦλθον ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον, ὃν εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ Θεός. καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐκεῖ ῾Αβραὰμ τὸ θυσιαστήριον καὶ ἐπέθηκε τὰ ξύλα, καὶ συμποδίσας ᾿Ισαὰκ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ, ἐπέθηκεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον ἐπάνω τῶν ξύλων.
