A22 God Commands Abraham to Offer Isaac

One day, God tested Abraham.
He called, 'Oh Abraham.'
And he answered, 'Here I'm'
An offering, God asked him.

'At Moriah, there's a mountain.
To its top, you take your son,
And offer him as sacrifice to me.
Let this be my command to thee.'

The next day morning, Abraham loaded,
Onto his donkey logs of firewood;
With two servants and his one son,
He went to the place God-chosen.

He ordered his servants to stay
With donkey, some distance away;
He walked upto the place,
Meant for the sacrifice.

C03 The Fall of Jericho

To keep the Israelites out.

The guarded city's border.

Joshua knew not what to do?
Then, God gave him a clue.
'Soon, you'll take it over,
And it’ll be yours forever.'

'Listen, you march around,
With your soldiers behind,
For six days, once a day,
From where you all stay.'

'Let seven priests,
With their trumpets,
Go in front of this
Holy Covenant Box.'

J32 The Parables 5

“I’m going out, Father,
Give me my property-share,
For I wish to seek my fortune
Abroad, ” said his second son.

His property, he sold
For a value in gold,
And took his journey
Into a far away country

All his gold had been spent.
He was thrown in wants,
With his riotous living
And no support coming.

His search for job went in vain
As a servant, he fed swine.
The swine’s husk food, he ate,
In repentance, he cursed his fate.
