Nothing could fit him for this but a crowning act of obedience. When he had bound his son on the altar, God came and said (Gen. xxii. 12, 18), 'By Myself have I sworn, in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thee; and in thy seed shall all nations be blessed, because thou hast obeyed My...
