Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 22:2

_ _ Take now thy son, etc. — Every circumstance mentioned was calculated to give a deeper stab to the parental bosom. To lose his only son, and by an act of his own hand, too! — what a host of conflicting feelings must the order have raised! But he heard and obeyed without a murmur (Galatians 1:16; Luke 14:26).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 22:1-2.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 22:2

And he said, take thy son — Not thy bullocks and thy lambs; how willingly would Abraham have parted with them by thousands to redeem Isaac! Not thy servant, no, not the steward of thine house. Thine only son — Thine only son by Sarah. Ishmael was lately cast out, to the grief of Abraham, and now Isaac only was left and must he go too? Yes: take Isaac, him by name, thy laughter, that son indeed. Yea, that son whom thou lovest — The trial was of Abraham's love to God, and therefore it must be in a beloved son: in the Hebrew 'tis expressed more emphatically, and I think might very well be read thus, Take now that son of thine, that only son of thine, whom thou lovest, that Isaac. And get thee into the land of Moriah — Three days journey off: so that he might have time to consider it, and if he do it, must do it deliberately. And offer him for a burnt offering — He must not only kill his son, but kill him as a sacrifice, with all that sedateness and composedness of mind, with which he used to offer his burnt — offering.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

And he said, Take now thy son, thine only [son] Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of (a) Moriah; and (b) offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

(a) Signifying the fear of God, in which place he was also honoured, Solomon later building the temple there.

(b) This was the main point of his temptation, seeing that he was commanded to offer up him in whom God had promised to bless all the nations of the world.
