Abraham and his son are blessed
Once Isaac brought the wood to Abraham, Abraham got the fire ready and laid his son tied up on top of the fire. As Abraham got ready to plunge a knife in his son's chest the angel appeared. The angel said " Abraham stop, as you have shown your faith."
I'm sorry son.
Abraham stop! You have proved your love to God by thy willingness to sacrifice your child.
As Abraham untied his son he spotted a lamb in a bush. Abraham then got up and grabbed the lamb, tied up and sacrificed it, instead of his beloved son Isaac.
Because you have done this for thy love of God, you have been blessed, and your son, and your son's sons shall be blessed.
As the lamb was being sacrificed the angel gave a blessing to Abraham, and his son, and his son's sons to come. Once the blessing was over the angel disappeared and everyone went back to Beersheba.
And your sons to come shall be as many in number as the stars in the sky.
