And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.

And 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.

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.


Eisht, er y trass laa, hrog Abraham seose e hooillyn, as honnick eh yn ynnyd foddey veih.

Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.

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 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?


As dreggyr Abraham, My vac, gowee Jee kiarail dy gheddyn eayn da hene son oural-losht: myr shen hie ad ny-neesht cooidjagh.

And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.

And 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.

And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,


As dooyrt eh, Liorym pene ta mee er vreearrey ta'n Chiarn gra, son fakin dy vel oo er n'yannoo shoh, as nagh vel oo er vreayll voym's dty vac, eer dty ynrican vac;

And 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:


Lesh bannaghtyn neem's uss y vannaghey, as lesh bishagh neem's bishaghey dty luight myr rollageyn yn aer, as myr y gheinnagh t'er oirr ny marrey; as yiow dty luight's possession ayns giatt e noidyn.

That 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;


As ayns dty luight, vees ooilley ashoonyn y theihll er nyn mannaghey: er-y-fa dy vel oo er choyrt biallys da my choraa.

And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.
