1 This saying of Yitsḥaq’s pleased 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 visited me, saying, Thy son Yitsḥaq have I seen and his heart is right before me and he is clean and pure, an acceptable sacrifice unto 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

2 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 touched the eyes of my understanding that they were opened and I saw the sons of Elohim gathered in council with the Father and Hĕlĕl also was among them.

3 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to Hĕlĕl, Surely thou hast been abroad in the earth trying the hearts of men.

4 Whom hast thou found standing in his integrity who should be further tried to know whether he be thine or mine?

5 Hĕlĕl replied, Hast thou considered Aḇraham and Sarah and Yitsḥaq? For I am unable to lead them into sin in whatever matter I place before them.

6 They are united in perfect bonds of love and purity and even Aḇraham hath united all his family again which was divided.

7 Surely they should be tried to know whether they are faithful only in their prosperity or whether they will be faithful also in adversity.

8 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said unto Hĕlĕl, Were I to say unto Aḇraham, Bring up Yitsḥaq thy son unto the high place and offer him as a burnt offering unto me, he would not withhold him from me nor would Yitsḥaq refuse to be offered.

9 And Hĕlĕl answered 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, Speak now unto Aḇraham as thou hast said and we shall see whether his heart is perfect with 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 or whether his end shall be in my reign.
