When God told Abraham to sacrifice his only son. “Early the next morning, Abraham got up and loaded his donkeys, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son. When ABRAHAM had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place.” Genesis 22:3-13
And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.
And ABRAHAM took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and ABRAHAM took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.
Isaac asked his father where the offering was and Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
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.
ABRAHAM stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
The Lord called and told Abraham not to kill his son, for God knew now that Abraham truly feared the Lord because he had not held back his only son from God.
Abraham saw a ram caught in a thickets, so he took it and offered him up instead of his son.
Help us, too, Lord, to obey You.
