M And the Thing was very grievous in Abraham's Sight, because of his Son.

12 And God laid unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy Sight, because os the Lad, and because of thy Bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her Voice: for in Isaac shall thy Seed be Called.

I 3 And also of the Son of the Bond-woman will I make i Nation, because he is thy Seed.

14 And Abraham rose up early m the Morning, and took Bread, and a Bottle of Water, and gave it unto Hagar (putting it on her Shoulder) and the Child, and sent her away; and she departed, and wandred in the Wilderness of Beersheba.

i j And the Water was spent in the Bottle, and she cast the Child under one of the Shrubs.

16 And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a Bow-shot: for she said, Let me not see the Death of the Child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her Voice, and wept.

17 And Ood heard the Voice of the Lad: And the AnCel of God called to Hagar out of Heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not j for God hath heard the Voice of the Lad where he is.

18 Arise, lift up the Lad, and hold him in thine Hand: for I will make him a great Nation.

19 And God opened her Eyes, and she saw a Well of Water: and she went, and filled the Bottle with Water, and gave the Lad Drink.

20 And God was with the Lad, and he grew, and dwelt in the Wilderness, and became an Archer.

21 And he dwelt in the Wilderness of Paran: and his Mother took him a Wife out of the Land of Egypt.

4 Then on the Third Day Abraham lift up his Eyes, and saw the Place asar off.

5 And Abraham said unto his young Men, Abide you here with the Ass; and I and the Lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.

6 And 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.

7 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 Lam3 for a Burnt-offering?

8 Abraham said, My Son, God will Provide himself a Lamb for a Burnt-offering: so they went both of them together.

9 And 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.

10 And Abraham Stretched forth his Hand, and took the Knife to Slay his Son.

12 And 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, time Only Son from me.

13 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 Bumt-offering, in the Stead of his Son.

14 And Abraham had 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.

15 And the Angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of Heaven the second time,

19 So Abraham returned unto his young Men, and they rose up, and went together to Beer-sheba, and Abraham dwelt at Beer-sheba.
