Commentary on
The Book of Jasher
Chapter 23:1-10.

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
          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.
