创世记 22:1-24

上帝考验亚伯拉罕

1这些事以后,上帝要考验亚伯拉罕,就呼唤他:“亚伯拉罕!”他回答说:“我在这里。” 2上帝说:“带着你的儿子,你的独生子,你疼爱的以撒前往摩利亚,在我指示你的山上把他献为燔祭。” 3亚伯拉罕清早起来,准备好驴,劈好献燔祭用的柴,带着两个仆人和儿子以撒动身前往上帝指示他的地方。 4到了第三天,亚伯拉罕远远看见那地方, 5就对仆人说:“你们和驴在这里等着,我和孩子到那边敬拜上帝,然后便回来。”

6于是,亚伯拉罕把献燔祭用的柴放在儿子以撒肩上,自己手里拿着火种和刀。父子二人一同向前走。 7以撒说:“父亲。”亚伯拉罕说:“孩子,什么事?”以撒说:“你看,火种和柴都有了,但献燔祭用的羊羔在哪里呢?” 8亚伯拉罕说:“孩子,上帝自己会预备献燔祭的羊羔。”二人就继续向前走。

9他们到了上帝指示的地方,亚伯拉罕就筑起祭坛,把柴摆在上面,然后把以撒捆起来放在柴上。 10亚伯拉罕伸手拿起刀来,要杀他的儿子。 11耶和华的天使从天上呼唤他说:“亚伯拉罕亚伯拉罕!”他回答说:“我在这里。” 12天使说:“不要动孩子,不可伤害他!现在我知道你敬畏上帝,因为你不惜献上你的儿子——你的独生子。” 13这时亚伯拉罕抬起头来,突然看见有一只公绵羊两角卡在稠密的树丛中,于是把羊取来代替他的儿子献为燔祭。 14亚伯拉罕称那地方为“耶和华以勒22:14 耶和华以勒”或译“耶和华必预备”。。直到今天人们还说:“在耶和华的山上必有预备。”

15耶和华的天使再次从天上呼唤亚伯拉罕16对他说:“耶和华说,‘你既然愿意把你的儿子,你的独生子献给我,我凭自己向你起誓, 17我必赐福给你,使你的后裔多如天上的星和海边的沙。你的后裔必占领仇敌的城池, 18天下万国必因你的后裔而蒙福,因为你听从了我的话。’” 19于是,亚伯拉罕回到仆人等候的地方,他们一同返回亚伯拉罕居住的别示巴

拿鹤的后代

20后来,有人告诉亚伯拉罕:“密迦为你的兄弟拿鹤生了几个儿子, 21长子乌斯乌斯的弟弟布斯亚兰的父亲基姆利22基薛哈琐必达益拉利百加的父亲彼土利。” 23密迦亚伯拉罕的兄弟拿鹤生了八个儿子。 24拿鹤的妾流玛生了提八迦含他辖玛迦

Genesis 22:1-24

God Tests Abraham

1Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, “Abraham!”

“Here I am,” Abraham replied.

2Then God said, “Take your son, your only son. He is the one you love. Take Isaac. Go to the place called Moriah. Give your son to me there as a burnt offering. Sacrifice him on the mountain I will show you.”

3Early the next morning Abraham got up and loaded his donkey. He took two of his servants and his son Isaac with him. He cut enough wood for the burnt offering. Then he started out for the place God had shown him. 4On the third day Abraham saw the place a long way off. 5He said to his servants, “Stay here with the donkey. I and the boy will go over there and worship. Then we’ll come back to you.”

6Abraham had his son Isaac carry the wood for the burnt offering. He himself carried the fire and the knife. And the two of them walked on together. 7Then Isaac said to his father Abraham, “Father?”

“Yes, my son?” Abraham replied.

“The fire and wood are here,” Isaac said. “But where is the lamb for the burnt offering?”

8Abraham answered, “God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” And the two of them walked on together.

9They reached the place God had shown Abraham. There Abraham built an altar. He arranged the wood on it. He tied up his son Isaac. Abraham placed him on the altar, on top of the wood. 10Then he reached out his hand. He picked up the knife to kill his son. 11But the angel of the Lord called out to him from heaven. He said, “Abraham! Abraham!”

“Here I am,” Abraham replied.

12“Do not lay a hand on the boy,” he said. “Do not harm him. Now I know that you would do anything for God. You have not held back from me your son, your only son.”

13Abraham looked around. There in a bush he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram. He sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. 14So Abraham named that place The Lord Will Provide. To this day people say, “It will be provided on the mountain of the Lord.”

15The angel of the Lord called out to Abraham from heaven a second time. 16He said, “I am giving you my word that I will bless you. I will bless you because of what you have done,” announces the Lord. “You have not held back your son, your only son. 17So I will certainly bless you. I will make the children born into your family as many as the stars in the sky. I will make them as many as the grains of sand on the seashore. They will take over the cities of their enemies. 18All nations on earth will be blessed because of your children. All these things will happen because you have obeyed me.”

19Then Abraham returned to his servants. They started out together for Beersheba. And Abraham stayed in Beersheba.

Nahor’s Sons

20Some time later Abraham was told, “Milkah has become a mother. She has had sons by your brother Nahor.

21Uz was born first. Then came his brother Buz.

Kemuel was born next. He became the father of Aram.

22Milkah’s other sons are Kesed, Hazo, Pildash, Jidlaph and Bethuel.”

23Bethuel became the father of Rebekah.

Milkah had the eight sons by Abraham’s brother Nahor.

24Nahor had a concubine named Reumah. She also had sons.

They were Tebah, Gaham, Tahash and Maakah.
