ዘፍጥረት 22:1-24

አብርሃም ተፈተነ

1ከዚህ ሁሉ በኋላ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) አብርሃምን ፈተነው፤ “አብርሃም!” አለው። እርሱም “አቤቱ አለሁ” አለ።

2እግዚአብሔርም (ኤሎሂም)፣ “የምትወደውን አንዱን ልጅህን፣ ይስሐቅን ይዘህ ወደ ሞሪያ ምድር ሂድ፤ እኔ በማመለክትህ በአንዱ ተራራ ላይ የሚቃጠል መሥዋዕት አድርገህ ሠዋው” አለው።

3በማግስቱ ጠዋት አብርሃም ማልዶ ተነሣ፤ አህያውን ጭኖ፣ ሁለት አገልጋዮቹንና ልጁን ይስሐቅን ይዞ፣ ለመሥዋዕት የሚበቃውን ዕንጨት ከቈረጠ በኋላ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ወዳመለከተው ቦታ ለመሄድ ጒዞውን ጀመረ፤ 4በሦስተኛው ቀን አብርሃም ቀና ብሎ ቦታውን ከሩቅ ተመለከተ፤ 5አገልጋዮቹንም “እናንተ አህያውን ይዛችሁ እዚህ ቈዩን፤ እኔና ልጄ ግን ወደዚያ ሄደን ለእግዚአብሔር ሰግደን እንመለሳለን” አላቸው።

6አብርሃም ለሚቃጠል መሥዋዕት የሚሆነውን ዕንጨት ወስዶ፣ ልጁን ይስሐቅን አሸከመው፤ እሳቱንና ቢላዋውንም ራሱ ያዘ። ሁለቱም አብረው ሄዱ። 7ይስሐቅም አባቱን አብርሃምን፣ “አባቴ ሆይ” አለው።

አብርሃምም፣ “እነሆኝ፤ አለሁ ልጄ” አለው።

ይስሐቅም፣ “እሳቱና ዕንጨቱ ይኸው፤ ነገር ግን የሚቃጠለው መሥዋዕት የት አለ?” ብሎ ጠየቀ።

8አብርሃምም፣ “ልጄ ሆይ፤ ለሚቃጠለው መሥዋዕት የሚሆነውን በግእግዚአብሔር ራሱ ያዘጋጃል (ኤሎሂም ይሬህሎ)” አለው። ሁለቱም አብረው ጒዞአቸውን ቀጠሉ።

9እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ወዳመለከተው ቦታ እንደ ደረሱ፣ አብርሃም መሠዊያ ሠራ፤ በላዩም ላይ ዕንጨት ረበረበ፤ ልጁን ይስሐቅንም አስሮ በመሠዊያው ዕንጨት ላይ አጋደመው። 10ከዚያም ልጁን ለማረድ እጁን ዘርግቶ ቢላዋውን አነሣ። 11የእግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) መልአክ ግን ከሰማይ፣ “አብርሃም፤ አብርሃም፤” ብሎ ጠራው፤

አብርሃምም፣ “እነሆ፤ አለሁ” አለ።

12እርሱም፣ “እጅህን በብላቴናው ላይ አታሳርፍ፤ ምንም ጒዳት አታድርስበት፤ እነሆ፤ እግዚአብሔርን (ኤሎሂም) እንደምትፈራ ተረድቻለሁ፤ ልጅህን፣ ያውም አንዱን ልጅህን ለእኔ ለመስጠት አልሳሳህምና” አለው።

13አብርሃም ቀና ብሎ ሲመለከት በቊጥቋጦ መካከል ቀንዶቹ የተጠላለፉ አንድ አውራ በግ ከበስተ ኋላው አየ፤ ወደዚያው ሄዶ በጉን አመጣና የሚቃጠል መሥዋዕት አድርጎ ሠዋው። 14ከዚህም የተነሣ አብርሃም የዚያን ስፍራ ስም፣ “እግዚአብሔር ያዘጋጃል (ያህዌ ይርኤ)” ብሎ ጠራው፤ እስከ ዛሬም ድረስ፣ “በእግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ተራራ ላይ ይዘጋጃል” ይባላል።

15የእግዚአብሔርም (ያህዌ) መልአክ አብርሃምን ከሰማይ ዳግመኛ ጠራው፤ 16እንዲህም አለው፤ “እግዚአብሔርም (ያህዌ) በራሴ ማልሁ አለ፤ አንዱን ልጅህን ለእኔ ለመስጠት አልሳሳህምና፣ 17በእርግጥ እባርክሃለሁ፤ ዘርህን እንደ ሰማይ ከዋክብት፣ እንደ ባሕር ዳር አሸዋም አበዛዋለሁ። ዘሮችህም የጠላቶቻቸውን ደጆች ይወርሳሉ፤ 18ቃሌን ስለ ሰማህ የምድር ሕዝቦች ሁሉ በዘርህ ይባረካሉ።”

19ከዚያም አብርሃም ወደ አገልጋዮቹ ተመለሰ፤ ተያይዘውም ወደ ቤርሳቤህ ሄዱ፤ አብርሃምም በቤርሳቤህ ኖረ።

የናኮር ልጆች

20ከዚህ በኋላ እንዲህ ተብሎ ለአብርሃም ተነገረው፤ “ሚልካም ደግሞ የልጆች እናት ሆናለች፤ ለወንድምህም ለናኮር ወንዶች ልጆችን ወልዳለች። 21እነርሱም የበኵር ልጁ ዑፅና ወንድሙ ቡዝ፣ የአራም አባት ቀሙኤል፣ 22ኮዛት፣ ሐዞ፣ ፊልዳሥ፣ የድላፍና ባቱኤል ናቸው።” 23ባቱኤልም ርብቃን ወለደ። ሚልካ ለአብርሃም ወንድም ለናኮር የወለደችለት እነዚህ ስምንት ወንዶች ልጆች ናቸው። 24ከእነዚህም ሌላ የናኮር ቁባት ሬናሕ ደግሞ ጥባሕ፣ ገአም፣ ተሐሽና ሞክሳ የተባሉ ወንዶች ልጆች ወለደችለት።

Genesis 22:1-24

1And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.22.1 Behold…: Heb. Behold me 2And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

3¶ And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him. 4Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off. 5And 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. 6And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together. 7And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?22.7 lamb: or, kid 8And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together. 9And they came to the place which God had told him of; 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. 10And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

11And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I. 12And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me. 13And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. 14And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.22.14 Jehovah-jireh: that is, The Lord will see, or, provide

15¶ And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, 16And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: 17That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;22.17 shore: Heb. lip 18And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice. 19So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beer-sheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beer-sheba.

20¶ And it came to pass after these things, that it was told Abraham, saying, Behold, Milcah, she hath also born children unto thy brother Nahor; 21Huz his firstborn, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel the father of Aram, 22And Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel. 23And Bethuel begat Rebekah: these eight Milcah did bear to Nahor, Abraham’s brother.22.23 Rebekah: Gr. Rebecca 24And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, she bare also Tebah, and Gaham, and Thahash, and Maachah.
