And he split the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up and went to the place of which God had told him. 4 Then on the third day, Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place afar off. 5 And Abraham said to his young men, You stay here with the ass. And I and the boy will go on to this way and worship, and come again to you.
