"Abraham! Take your son, your only son isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains that I shall show you"
"Stay here with the donkey; the boy and I will go over there; we will worship and then come back to you."
God was testing Abraham. One day God ordered Abraham to use his only son Isaac and use him as a burnt offering at mount Moriah.
"Father! The fire and the wood are here but where is the lamb for offering?"
"God himself will provide the lamb for a burnt offering, my son."
So Abraham did was he was told and rose up early in the morning with his 2 young men and his son Isaac, saddled the donkey. Then he cut some wood for the offering and set out with them to the place he was told to do the sacrifice at.
On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place far away and said to his 2 young men.
"Abraham! Abraham! Do not lay your hands on the boy or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son for me."
Abraham then took the wood of the burnt offering, gave it to Isaac to carry, and Abraham carried the fire and the knife. As the 2 of them walk together Isaac said to his father.
When they finally arrived to the place that God had shown him, Abraham then built the altar and laid the wood on the ground. Then bound his son Isaac, then laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. Abraham then took the knife, raised his hand to kill his son.
But an angel of the lord came from heaven, stopped Abraham and said.
