Genesis 19, 21-22: The Perfect Sacrifice [Spanish]
Genesis 19 (JUB)
1 And the two angels came to Sodom at evening; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom, and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground,
2 and he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your slave’s house and tarry all night and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early and go on your ways. And they said, No, but we will abide in the street all night.
3 And he pressed upon them greatly, and they turned in unto him and entered into his house, and he made them a banquet and baked unleavened bread, and they ate.
4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter;
5 and they called unto Lot and said unto him, Where are the men who came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us that we may know them.
6 And Lot went out at the door unto them and shut the door after him
7 and said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.
8 Behold now, I have two daughters who have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you and do ye to them as is good in your eyes; only unto these men do nothing, for they have come under the shadow of my roof.
9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This fellow came in to sojourn and is he to lift himself up as judge? Now will we deal worse with thee than with them. And they did great violence to the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.
10 Then the men put forth their hand and pulled Lot into the house with them and shut the door.
11 And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great so that they wearied themselves to find the door.
12 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou anyone else here? Sons-in-law and thy sons and thy daughters and whatever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place;
13 For we will destroy this place because the cry of them is waxed great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it.
14 And Lot went out and spoke unto his sons-in-law, those who were to marry his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons-in-law.
15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife and thy two daughters who are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.
16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand and upon the hand of his wife and upon the hand of his two daughters, the Lord being merciful unto him; and they brought him forth and set him outside the city.
17 And it came to pass as they brought them forth outside, that he said, Escape; for thy soul, do not look behind thee, neither stop thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
18 And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my lords;
19 behold now, thy slave has found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast showed unto me in saving my life; but I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die.
20 Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one; Oh, let me escape there, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.
21 And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also that I will not overthrow the city for which thou hast spoken.
22 Make thee haste, escape there; for I cannot do anything until thou hast arrived there. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.
23 The sun was rising upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.
24 Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of the heavens;
25 and he overthrew those cities and all that plain, with all the inhabitants of those cities, and the fruit of the ground.
26 Then the wife of Lot looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
27 And Abraham rose up early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord.
28 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah and toward all the land of that plain and beheld that the smoke of the land went up as the smoke of a furnace.
29 And it came to pass as God destroyed the cities of the plain that God remembered Abraham and sent Lot out of the midst of the destruction when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.
30 ¶ But Lot went up out of Zoar and dwelt in the mountain and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar; and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.
31 Then the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man left in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth.
32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him that we may preserve the generation of our father.
33 And they made their father drink wine that night; and the firstborn went in and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
34 And it came to pass on the next day that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay last night with my father; let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in and lie with him that we may preserve the generation of our father.
35 And they made their father drink wine that night also, and the younger arose and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
36Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.
37 And the firstborn bore a son and called his name Moab; the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.
38 And the younger, she also bore a son and called his name Benammi; the same is the father of the sons of Ammon unto this day.
Genesis 21 (JUB)
1 And the Lord visited Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did with Sarah as he had spoken.
2 For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age at the set time of which God had spoken to him.
3 And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bore to him, Isaac.
4 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old as God had commanded him.
5 And Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born unto him.
6 Then Sarah said, God has made me to laugh so that all that hear will laugh with me.
7 And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck? For I have born him a son in his old age.
8 And the child grew and was weaned, and Abraham made a great banquet the day that Isaac was weaned.
9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had born unto Abraham, mocking.
10 Therefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son; for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.
11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham’s sight because of his son.
12 Then God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah has said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.
13 And also of the son of the bondwoman I will make a nation because he is thy seed.
14 So Abraham rose up early in the morning and took bread and a bottle of water and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child and sent her away; and she departed and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba.
15 And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under a tree.
16 And she went and sat her down over against him a good way off as it were a bowshot; for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him and lifted up her voice and wept.
17 And God heard the voice of the lad, and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven and said unto her, What ails thee, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.
18 Arise, lift up the lad and hold him in thy hand, for I will make him a great nation.
19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went and filled the bottle with water and gave the lad drink.
20 And God was with the lad, and he grew and dwelt in the wilderness and became an archer.
21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran, and his mother took a wife for him out of the land of Egypt.
22 And it came to pass at that time that Abimelech and Phichol, the prince of his host, spoke unto Abraham, saying, God is with thee in all that thou doest.
23 Now therefore swear unto me here by God that thou wilt not deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son’s son; but according to the mercy that I have done unto thee, thou shalt do unto me and to the land in which thou hast sojourned.
24 And Abraham said, I will swear.
25 And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water which Abimelech’s slaves had violently taken away.
26 And Abimelech said, I know not who has done this thing; neither didst thou tell me, neither have I heard of it, but today.
27 And Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them unto Abimelech; and both of them made a covenant.
28 And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves.
29 And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What mean these seven ewe lambs which thou hast set by themselves?
30 And he said, For these seven ewe lambs shalt thou take of my hand that they may be a witness unto me that I have dug this well.
31 Therefore he called that place Beersheba; because there they swore, both of them.
32 Thus they made a covenant at Beersheba; then Abimelech rose up and Phichol, the prince of his host, and they returned into the land of the Philistines.
33 And Abraham planted a grove in Beersheba and called there on the name of the Lord, the eternal God.
34 And Abraham sojourned in the Philistines’ land many days.
Genesis 22 (JUB)
1 And it came to pass after these things that God proved Abraham and said unto him, Abraham; and he said, Behold, here I am.
2 And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou dost love, and go to the land of Moriah and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.
3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning and saddled his ass and took two of his young men with him and Isaac his son, and cut the wood for the burnt offering and rose up and went unto 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 unto his young men, Abide here with the ass, and I and the lad will go yonder and worship and come again to you.
6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it upon Isaac, his son; and he took the fire in his hand and the knife; and they both went together.
7 Then Isaac spoke unto Abraham his father and said, My father; and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?
8 And Abraham answered, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering, so they both went together.
9 And when they came to the place which God had told him of, Abraham built an altar there and laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand and took the knife to slay his son.
11 Then the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven and said, Abraham, Abraham; and he said, Here am I.
12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou anything unto him; for now I know that thou doest fear God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.
13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked and beheld behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns; and Abraham went and took the ram and offered him up for a burnt offering instead of his son.
14 And Abraham called the name of that place The Lord Shall See (YHWH-jireh). Therefore it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.
15 And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time
16 and said, By myself I have sworn, said the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son;
17 that in blessing I will bless thee and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gates of his enemies;
18 and in thy seed shall all the Gentiles of the earth be blessed because thou hast hearkened unto my voice.
19 So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba.
20 And it came to pass after these things that it was told Abraham, saying, Behold, Milcah, she has also born sons unto thy brother Nahor;
21 Huz, his firstborn, and Buz, his brother, and Kemuel, the father of Aram
22 and Chesed and Hazo and Pildash and Jidlaph and Bethuel.
23 And Bethuel begat Rebekah. Milcah gave birth to these eight unto Nahor, Abraham’s brother.
24 And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, also gave birth to Tebah and Gaham and Thahash and Maachah.
