Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?
And the LORD said unto  Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?
Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.

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.
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  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.
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?
And  Abraham said, My son,  God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
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.
And  Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the  knife to slay his son.
And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of  heaven, and said,  Abraham,  Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
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, thine only son from me.
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  Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.
And the angel of the LORD called unto  Abraham out of  heaven the second time,
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:
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;
And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

Hear us, my lord: thou art a mighty prince among us: in the choice of our sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from thee his sepulchre, but that thou mayest bury thy dead.
And  Abraham stood up, and bowed himself to the people of the land, even to the children of Heth.   Genesis 23:2-7 


And Ephron dwelt among the children of Heth: and Ephron the Hittite answered  Abraham in the audience of the children of Heth, even of all that went in at the gate of his city, saying,
Nay, my lord, hear me: the  field give I thee, and the cave that is therein, I give it thee; in the presence of the sons of my people give I it thee: bury thy dead.
And  Abraham bowed down himself before the people of the land.
And he spake unto Ephron in the audience of the people of the land, saying, But if thou wilt give it, I pray thee, hear me: I will give thee  money for the  field; take it of me, and I will bury my dead there.
And Ephron answered  Abraham, saying unto him,
My lord, hearken unto me: the land is worth four hundred shekels of  silver; what is that betwixt me and thee? bury therefore thy dead.

And the  field of Ephron which was in Machpelah, which was before Mamre, the  field, and the cave which was therein, and all the  trees that were in the  field, that were in all the borders round about, were made sure
Unto  Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of Heth, before all that went in at the gate of his city.
And after this,  Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the  field of Machpelah before Mamre: the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan.

But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.
And the servant said unto him, Peradventure the woman will not be willing to follow me unto this land: must I needs bring thy son again unto the land from whence thou camest?
And  Abraham said unto him, Beware thou that thou bring not my son thither again.   Genesis 24:1-6
