1 When Yitsḥaq was thirty-seven years old, he was one day talking with his brother Yishma’ĕl.

2 And Yishma’ĕl was boasting of his righteousness, saying, I was thirteen years old when 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 spake to my father to circumcise us, and from that time I have consecrated my soul unto 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and kept His Commandments as they have come unto me from my father.

3 But Yitsḥaq answered him saying, Why dost thou boast in thy righteousness, for none of us are without sin and all mankind is as nothing before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

4 And we must be prepared to be offered upon the altar as a sacrifice to our Elohim with joy that we can glorify Him before our calling and election is made sure.
