The Book of Jasher
|XXIII:1 At that time the word of Yehuveh came to Abraham, and He said unto him, Abraham, and
he said, Here I am.
XXIII:2 And He said to him, Take now thy son, thine only son whom thou lovest, even Isaac, and go
to the land of Moriah, and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains
which shall be shown to thee, for there wilt thou see a cloud and the glory of Yehuveh.
XXIII:3 And Abraham said within himself, How shall I separate my son Isaac from Sarah his mother,
in order to bring him up for a burnt offering before Yehuveh?
XXIII:4 And Abraham came into the tent, and he sat before Sarah his wife, and he spoke these
words to her.
XXIII:5 My son Isaac is grown up and he has not for some time studied the service of his Elohim,
now tomorrow I will go and bring him to Shem, and Eber his son, and there he will learn the
ways of Yehuveh, for they will teach him to know Yehuveh as well as to know that when he
prayeth continually before Yehuveh, He will answer him, therefore there he will know the way
of serving Yehuveh his Elohim.
XXIII:6 And Sarah said, Thou has spoken well, go my master and do unto him as thou hast said,
but remove him not at a great distance from me, neither let him remain there too long, for
my soul is bound within his soul.
XXIII:7 And Abraham said unto Sarah, My daughter, let us pray to Yehuveh our Elohim that He
may do good with us.
XXIII:8 And Sarah took her son Isaac and he abode all that night with her, and she kissed and
embraced him, and gave him instruction till morning.
XXIII:9 And she said to him, O my son, how can my soul separate itself from thee? And she still
kissed him and embraced him, and she gave Abraham instructions concerning him.
XXIII:10 And Sarah said to Abraham, O my master, I pray thee take heed of thy son, and
place thine eyes over him, for I have no other son nor daughter but him.
