Sample text

And Abraham raised his eyes and saw and, look, a ram was caught in the thicket by its horns, and Abraham went and took the ram and offered him up as a burnt offering instead of his son. ” And the Lord’s messenger called out to Abraham once again from the heavens, and He said, “By My own Self I swear, declares the Lord, that because you have done this thing and have not held back your son, your only one, I will greatly bless you and will greatly multiply your seed, as the stars in the heavens and as the sand on the shore of the sea, and your seed shall take hold of its enemies’ gate.

Abram paid it, no questions asked, and almost immediately he discovered that, as always, there was fine print, and in the fine print, gaps in the coverage. The first was famine. Abram left Canaan for Egypt, where, worried about his well-being despite all those promises, he told his wife, Sarah, to say she was his sister, in the hope that Pharaoh would take her and spare his life. Pharaoh did, and God had to bail them out, but that wasn’t the last of Abram’s troubles. He had to deal with quarrelsome shepherds, warring kings, and his well-meaning but ne’er-do-well nephew, Lot.

Other translations differ. To explain: Abraham’s opening gambit is to ask whether fifty just men might be a sufficient number to save the town? God confirms yes. So with every profession of self-abasement, Abraham asks what about forty-five? ’ ventures Abraham? ‘I will not do it for the sake of the forty’ responds God. Yet even now Abraham is not satisfied. ’ Time and again when I have listened to others delivering this reading I have ached for them to give it some more expression, for them to raise even the merest chuckle from the congregation by injecting a nervous higher pitch to Abraham’s final question, and some testiness or weariness to God’s final answer.
