Tentavit Deus Abraham et dixit ad eum:...

Language: Latin

Tentavit Deus Abraham et dixit ad eum: «Abraham.»
«Adsum Domine.»
«Tolle filium tuum unigenitum quem diligis Isaac 
et super unum montium quem monstravero tibi offeres eum in holocaustum.»
Igitur Abraham de nocte consurgens abiit ad locum quem praeceperat ei Deus
et imposuit super Isaac holocausti ligna ipse vero 
portabat in manibus ignem et gladium.
Cumque duo simul pergerent dixit Isaac patri suo:
«Pater mi.»
«Quid vis fili ?»
«Ecce ligna gladius et ignis ubi est victima ?»
«Fili mi.»
«Quid suspiras Pater?»
«Fili unigenite.»
«Pater dilecte ecce ligna gladius et ignis ubi est victima ?»
«Fili mi unigenite providebit sibi Deus holocausti victimam.»
Et venerunt ad locum quem ostenderat ei Deus cumque alligasset Isaac posuit eum
super altare et extendens manum arripuit gladium ut immolaret filius suum.
