And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.In order to test Abraham's devotion, God orders him to sacrifice (murder) his own son, Isaac.
~ King James version ~
Tao neither rewards nor punishes, tempts nor tests.
~ possible Taoist alternative ~
Tao asks nothing of us. We may believe in the Way or not. Tao remains all the same.
