Genesis 22


1  And it came to pass1961 after310 these428 things,1697 that God430 did tempt5254 853 Abraham,85 and said559 unto413 him, Abraham:85 and he said,559 Behold,2009 here I am.

2  And he said,559 Take3947 now4994 853 thy son,1121 853 thine only3173 son 853 Isaac,3327 whom834 thou lovest,157 and get1980 thee into413 the land776 of Moriah;4179 and offer5927 him there8033 for a burnt offering5930 upon5921 one259 of the mountains2022 which834 I will tell559 thee of.413

3  And Abraham85 rose up early7925 in the morning,1242 and saddled2280 853 his ass,2543 and took3947 853 two8147 of his young men5288 with854 him, and Isaac3327 his son,1121 and cleaved1234 the wood6086 for the burnt offering,5930 and rose up,6965 and went1980 unto413 the place4725 of which834 God430 had told559 him.

4  Then on the third7992 day3117 Abraham85 lifted up5375 853 his eyes,5869 and saw7200 853 the place4725 afar off.4480 7350

5  And Abraham85 said559 unto413 his young men,5288 Abide3427 ye here6311 with5973 the ass;2543 and I589 and the lad5288 will go1980 yonder5704 3541 and worship,7812 and come again7725 to413 you.

6  And Abraham85 took3947 853 the wood6086 of the burnt offering,5930 and laid7760 it upon5921 Isaac3327 his son;1121 and he took3947 853 the fire784 in his hand,3027 and a knife;3979 and they went1980 both8147 of them together.3162

7  And Isaac3327 spoke559 unto413 Abraham85 his father,1 and said,559 My father:1 and he said,559 Here2009 am I, my son.1121 And he said,559 Behold2009 the fire784 and the wood:6086 but where346 is the lamb7716 for a burnt offering?5930

8  And Abraham85 said,559 My son,1121 God430 will provide7200 himself a lamb7716 for a burnt offering:5930 so they went1980 both8147 of them together.3162

9  And they came935 to413 the place4725 which834 God430 had told559 him of; and Abraham85 built1129 853 an altar4196 there,8033 and laid the wood in order,6186 853 6086 and bound6123 853 Isaac3327 his son,1121 and laid7760 him on5921 the altar4196 upon4480 4605 the wood.6086

10  And Abraham85 stretched forth7971 853 his hand,3027 and took3947 853 the knife3979 to slay7819 853 his son.1121

11  And the angel4397 of the LORD3068 called7121 unto413 him out of4480 heaven,8064 and said,559 Abraham,85 Abraham:85 and he said,559 Here2009 am I.

12  And he said,559 Lay7971 not408 thine hand3027 upon413 the lad,5288 neither408 do6213 thou any thing3972 unto him: for3588 now6258 I know3045 that3588 thou859 fearest3373 God,430 seeing thou hast not3808 withheld2820 853 thy son,1121 853 thine only3173 son from4480 me.

13  And Abraham85 lifted up5375 853 his eyes,5869 and looked,7200 and behold2009 behind310 him a ram352 caught270 in a thicket5442 by his horns:7161 and Abraham85 went1980 and took3947 853 the ram,352 and offered him up5927 for a burnt offering5930 in the stead of8478 his son.1121

14  And Abraham85 called7121 the name8034 of that1931 place4725 Jehovah-jireh:3070 as834 it is said559 to this day,3117 In the mount2022 of the LORD3068 it shall be seen.7200

15  And the angel4397 of the LORD3068 called7121 unto413 Abraham85 out of4480 heaven8064 the second time,8145

16  And said,559 By myself have I sworn,7650 saith5002 the LORD,3068 for3588 because3282 834 thou hast done6213 853 this2088 thing,1697 and hast not3808 withheld2820 853 thy son,1121 853 thine only3173 son:

17  That3588 in blessing1288 I will bless1288 thee, and in multiplying7235 I will multiply7235 853 thy seed2233 as the stars3556 of the heaven,8064 and as the sand2344 which834 is upon5921 the sea3220 shore;8193 and thy seed2233 shall possess3423 853 the gate8179 of his enemies;341

18  And in thy seed2233 shall all3605 the nations1471 of the earth776 be blessed;1288 because6118 834 thou hast obeyed8085 my voice.6963

19  So Abraham85 returned7725 unto413 his young men,5288 and they rose up6965 and went1980 together3162 to413 Beer-sheba;884 and Abraham85 dwelt3427 at Beer-sheba.884

20  And it came to pass1961 after310 these428 things,1697 that it was told5046 Abraham,85 saying,559 Behold,2009 Milcah,4435 she1931 hath also1571 born3205 children1121 unto thy brother251 Nahor;5152

21  853 Huz5780 his firstborn,1060 and Buz938 his brother,251 and Kemuel7055 the father1 of Aram,758

22  And Chesed,3777 and Hazo,2375 and Pildash,6394 and Jidlaph,3044 and Bethuel.1328

23  And Bethuel1328 begot3205 853 Rebekah:7259 these428 eight8083 Milcah4435 did bear3205 to Nahor,5152 Abraham's85 brother.251

24  And his concubine,6370 whose name8034 was Reumah,7208 she1931 bore3205 also1571 853 Tebah,2875 and Gaham,1514 and Thahash,8477 and Maachah.4601


1 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὰ ῥήματα ταῦτα ὁ θεὸς ἐπείραζεν τὸν Αβρααμ καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν Αβρααμ Αβρααμ ὁ δὲ εἶπεν ἰδοὺ ἐγώ

2 καὶ εἶπεν λαβὲ τὸν υἱόν σου τὸν ἀγαπητόν ὃν ἠγάπησας τὸν Ισαακ καὶ πορεύθητι εἰς τὴν γῆν τὴν ὑψηλὴν καὶ ἀνένεγκον αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ εἰς ὁλοκάρπωσιν ἐφ᾽ ἓν τῶν ὀρέων ὧν ἄν σοι εἴπω

3 ἀναστὰς δὲ Αβρααμ τὸ πρωὶ ἐπέσαξεν τὴν ὄνον αὐτοῦ παρέλαβεν δὲ μεθ᾽ ἑαυτοῦ δύο παῖδας καὶ Ισαακ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ σχίσας ξύλα εἰς ὁλοκάρπωσιν ἀναστὰς ἐπορεύθη καὶ ἦλθεν ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον ὃν εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ θεός

4 τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ καὶ ἀναβλέψας Αβρααμ τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς εἶδεν τὸν τόπον μακρόθεν

5 καὶ εἶπεν Αβρααμ τοῖς παισὶν αὐτοῦ καθίσατε αὐτοῦ μετὰ τῆς ὄνου ἐγὼ δὲ καὶ τὸ παιδάριον διελευσόμεθα ἕως ὧδε καὶ προσκυνήσαντες ἀναστρέψωμεν πρὸς ὑμᾶς

6 ἔλαβεν δὲ Αβρααμ τὰ ξύλα τῆς ὁλοκαρπώσεως καὶ ἐπέθηκεν Ισαακ τῷ υἱῷ αὐτοῦ ἔλαβεν δὲ καὶ τὸ πῦρ μετὰ χεῖρα καὶ τὴν μάχαιραν καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν οἱ δύο ἅμα

7 εἶπεν δὲ Ισαακ πρὸς Αβρααμ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ εἴπας πάτερ ὁ δὲ εἶπεν τί ἐστιν τέκνον λέγων ἰδοὺ τὸ πῦρ καὶ τὰ ξύλα ποῦ ἐστιν τὸ πρόβατον τὸ εἰς ὁλοκάρπωσιν

8 εἶπεν δὲ Αβρααμ 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 Αβρααμ θυσιαστήριον καὶ ἐπέθηκεν τὰ ξύλα καὶ συμποδίσας Ισαακ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἐπέθηκεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον ἐπάνω τῶν ξύλων

10 καὶ ἐξέτεινεν Αβρααμ τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ λαβεῖν τὴν μάχαιραν σφάξαι τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ

11 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτὸν ἄγγελος κυρίου ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Αβρααμ Αβρααμ ὁ δὲ εἶπεν ἰδοὺ ἐγώ

12 καὶ εἶπεν μὴ ἐπιβάλῃς τὴν χεῖρά σου ἐπὶ τὸ παιδάριον μηδὲ ποιήσῃς αὐτῷ μηδέν νῦν γὰρ ἔγνων ὅτι φοβῇ τὸν θεὸν σὺ καὶ οὐκ ἐφείσω τοῦ υἱοῦ σου τοῦ ἀγαπητοῦ δι᾽ ἐμέ

13 καὶ ἀναβλέψας Αβρααμ τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς αὐτοῦ εἶδεν καὶ ἰδοὺ κριὸς εἷς κατεχόμενος ἐν φυτῷ σαβεκ τῶν κεράτων καὶ ἐπορεύθη Αβρααμ καὶ ἔλαβεν τὸν κριὸν καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν αὐτὸν εἰς ὁλοκάρπωσιν ἀντὶ Ισαακ τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ

14 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Αβρααμ τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου κύριος εἶδεν ἵνα εἴπωσιν σήμερον ἐν τῷ ὄρει κύριος ὤφθη

15 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ἄγγελος κυρίου τὸν Αβρααμ δεύτερον ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ

16 λέγων κατ᾽ ἐμαυτοῦ ὤμοσα λέγει κύριος οὗ εἵνεκεν ἐποίησας τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο καὶ οὐκ ἐφείσω τοῦ υἱοῦ σου τοῦ ἀγαπητοῦ δι᾽ ἐμέ

17 ἦ μὴν εὐλογῶν εὐλογήσω σε καὶ πληθύνων πληθυνῶ τὸ σπέρμα σου ὡς τοὺς ἀστέρας τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ὡς τὴν ἄμμον τὴν παρὰ τὸ χεῖλος τῆς θαλάσσης καὶ κληρονομήσει τὸ σπέρμα σου τὰς πόλεις τῶν ὑπεναντίων

18 καὶ ἐνευλογηθήσονται ἐν τῷ σπέρματί σου πάντα τὰ ἔθνη τῆς γῆς ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ὑπήκουσας τῆς ἐμῆς φωνῆς

19 ἀπεστράφη δὲ Αβρααμ πρὸς τοὺς παῖδας αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀναστάντες ἐπορεύθησαν ἅμα ἐπὶ τὸ φρέαρ τοῦ ὅρκου καὶ κατῴκησεν Αβρααμ ἐπὶ τῷ φρέατι τοῦ ὅρκου

20 ἐγένετο δὲ μετὰ τὰ ῥήματα ταῦτα καὶ ἀνηγγέλη τῷ Αβρααμ λέγοντες ἰδοὺ τέτοκεν Μελχα καὶ αὐτὴ υἱοὺς Ναχωρ τῷ ἀδελφῷ σου

21 τὸν Ωξ πρωτότοκον καὶ τὸν Βαυξ ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸν Καμουηλ πατέρα Σύρων

22 καὶ τὸν Χασαδ καὶ τὸν Αζαυ καὶ τὸν Φαλδας καὶ τὸν Ιεδλαφ καὶ τὸν Βαθουηλ

23 καὶ Βαθουηλ ἐγέννησεν τὴν Ρεβεκκαν ὀκτὼ οὗτοι υἱοί οὓς ἔτεκεν Μελχα τῷ Ναχωρ τῷ ἀδελφῷ Αβρααμ

24 καὶ ἡ παλλακὴ αὐτοῦ ᾗ ὄνομα Ρεημα ἔτεκεν καὶ αὐτὴ τὸν Ταβεκ καὶ τὸν Γααμ καὶ τὸν Τοχος καὶ τὸν Μωχα

1 Quæ postquam gesta sunt, tentavit Deus Abraham, et dixit ad eum: Abraham, Abraham. At ille respondit: Adsum.

2 Ait illi: Tolle filium tuum unigenitum, quem diligis, Isaac, et vade in terram visionis, atque ibi offeres eum in holocaustum super unum montium quem monstravero tibi.

3 Igitur Abraham de nocte consurgens, stravit asinum suum, ducens secum duos juvenes, et Isaac filium suum: cumque concidisset ligna in holocaustum, abiit ad locum quem præceperat ei Deus.

4 Die autem tertio, elevatis oculis, vidit locum procul:

5 dixitque ad pueros suos: Expectate hic cum asino: ego et puer illuc usque properantes, postquam adoraverimus, revertemur ad vos.

6 Tulit quoque ligna holocausti, et imposuit super Isaac filium suum: ipse vero portabat in manibus ignem et gladium. Cumque duo pergerent simul,

7 dixit Isaac patri suo: Pater mi. At ille respondit: Quid vis, fili? Ecce, inquit, ignis et ligna: ubi est victima holocausti?

8 Dixit autem Abraham: Deus providebit sibi victimam holocausti, fili mi. Pergebant ergo pariter.

9 Et venerunt ad locum quem ostenderat ei Deus, in quo ædificavit altare, et desuper ligna composuit; cumque alligasset Isaac filium suum, posuit eum in altare super struem lignorum.

10 Extenditque manum, et arripuit gladium, ut immolaret filium suum.

11 Et ecce angelus Domini de cælo clamavit, dicens: Abraham, Abraham. Qui respondit: Adsum.

12 Dixitque ei: Non extendas manum tuam super puerum, neque facias illi quidquam: nunc cognovi quod times Deum, et non pepercisti unigenito filio tuo propter me.

13 Levavit Abraham oculos suos, viditque post tergum arietem inter vepres hærentem cornibus, quem assumens obtulit holocaustum pro filio.

14 Appellavitque nomen loci illius, Dominus videt. Unde usque hodie dicitur: In monte Dominus videbit.

15 Vocavit autem angelus Domini Abraham secundo de cælo, dicens:

16 Per memetipsum juravi, dicit Dominus: quia fecisti hanc rem, et non pepercisti filio tuo unigenito propter me:

17 benedicam tibi, et multiplicabo semen tuum sicut stellas cæli, et velut arenam quæ est in littore maris: possidebit semen tuum portas inimicorum suorum,

18 et benedicentur in semine tuo omnes gentes terræ, quia obedisti voci meæ.

19 Reversus est Abraham ad pueros suos, abieruntque Bersabee simul, et habitavit ibi.

20 His ita gestis, nuntiatum est Abrahæ quod Melcha quoque genuisset filios Nachor fratri suo:

21 Hus primogenitum, et Buz fratrem ejus, et Camuel patrem Syrorum,

22 et Cased, et Azau, Pheldas quoque et Jedlaph,

23 ac Bathuel, de quo nata est Rebecca: octo istos genuit Melcha, Nachor fratri Abrahæ.

24 Concubina vero illius, nomine Roma, peperit Tabee, et Gaham, et Thahas, et Maacha.
