Hebrews 11:17

Context
11:17 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac. He had received the promises, 1  yet he was ready to offer up 2  his only son.

1 tn Here “received the promises” refers to the pledges themselves, not to the things God promised.

2 tn Grk “he was offering up.” The tense of this verb indicates the attempt or readiness to sacrifice Isaac without the actual completion of the deed.
