 22:2
22:2 'Take your son, the only one you love - Isaac - and go away to the Moriah area. Bring him as an all-burned offering on one of the mountains that I will designate to you.'
Vayomer kach-na et-bincha et-yechidecha asher-ahavta et-Yitschak velech-lecha el-erets haMoriah veha'alehu sham le'olah al achad heharim asher omar eleycha.



Commentary:

Moriah
  This was the Temple Mount; 2 Chronicles 3:1. Some say that it was called Moriah because the Amorites lived there (Rashbam; see Syrian version of Yov'loth 18:2). It is in Jerusalem, 43 miles north of Beer-sheba.

all-burned offering
  See note on Genesis 8:20
