The Birth and The Promise

𐤉𐤑𐤇𐤒 (Yatsakhaq) name means “he laugh” or “he mocks”, reflecting the laughter, in disbelief, of 𐤔𐤓𐤄 (Sharah), when told by 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (Yahauah) / 𐤉𐤄𐤉𐤄 (Yahayah) that they would have a child. He is the only patriarch whose name was not changed, and the only one who did not move out of 𐤊𐤍𐤏𐤍 (Kanaān). According to the narrative, he died at the age of 180 years old, the longest-lived of the three patriarchs.

On the eighth day from his birth, he was circumcised, as was necessary for all males of 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham)’s household, in order to be in compliance with 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (Yahauah) / 𐤉𐤄𐤉𐤄 (Yahayah)’s covenant. After he had been weaned, 𐤔𐤓𐤄 (Sharah) saw 𐤉𐤔𐤌𐤏𐤀𐤋 (Yashamaāal) 𐤑𐤇𐤒 (tsakhaq) or mocking and urged 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) to cast out 𐤄𐤂𐤓 (Hagar) the bondservant and her (), so that Yatsakhaq would be 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham)’s sole heir. 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) was hesitant, but at 𐤀𐤋𐤄𐤉𐤌 (alahayam)’s order he listened to his 𐤀𐤔𐤄 (ashah), 𐤔𐤓𐤄 (Sharah)’s, request.

The Sacrificial Ram

During his youth, his (), 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) took him to Mount 𐤌𐤅𐤓𐤉𐤄 (Mauarayah). At 𐤀𐤋𐤄𐤉𐤌 (alahayam)’s command, 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) was to build a sacrificial altar and sacrifice the young boy upon it. After 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) had bound his () to the altar and drawn his knife to kill the young boy, at the last moment a 𐤌𐤋𐤀𐤊 (malaak) of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 (Yahauah) / 𐤉𐤄𐤉𐤄 (Yahayah) prevented 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) from proceeding. Instead, he was directed to sacrifice a nearby ram that was stuck in thickets.

The Marriage and the Two Nations

Before the young man was 40, his () sent 𐤀𐤋𐤉𐤏𐤆𐤓 (Alayaāzar), his steward, into 𐤀𐤓𐤌 𐤍𐤄𐤓𐤉𐤌 (Aram Naharayam) aka Mesopotamia to find a 𐤀𐤔𐤄 (ashah) for the young man, from 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) nephew 𐤁𐤕𐤅𐤀𐤋 (Batauaal)’s family. 𐤀𐤋𐤉𐤏𐤆𐤓 (Alayaāzar) chose the 𐤀𐤓𐤌𐤉 (Aramay), 𐤓𐤁𐤒𐤄 (Rabaqah), for his master’s (). After many years of marriage to him, 𐤓𐤁𐤒𐤄 (Rabaqah) had still not given birth to a child and was believed to be barren.

He prayed for her and she conceived. 𐤓𐤁𐤒𐤄 (Rabaqah) gave birth to twin boys, 𐤏𐤔𐤅 (Āshau) and 𐤉𐤏𐤒𐤁 (Yaāqab). He was 60 years old when his two () were born. He favored 𐤏𐤔𐤅 (Āshau), and 𐤓𐤁𐤒𐤄 (Rabaqah) favored 𐤉𐤏𐤒𐤁 (Yaāqab). The narratives about him do not mention him having concubines.

He moved to 𐤁𐤀𐤓 𐤋𐤇𐤉 𐤓𐤀𐤉 (Baar Lakhay Raay) after his (), 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) died. When the land experienced famine, he moved to the 𐤐𐤋𐤔𐤕𐤉 (Palashatay) land of 𐤂𐤓𐤓 (Garar) where his () once lived. This land was still under the control of King 𐤀𐤁𐤉𐤌𐤋𐤊 (Abayamalak) as it was in the days of 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham). Like his father, he also deceived 𐤀𐤁𐤉𐤌𐤋𐤊 (Abayamalak) about his 𐤀𐤔𐤄 (ashah) and also got into the well business.

He went back to all of the wells that his () dug and saw that they were all stopped up with earth. The 𐤐𐤋𐤔𐤕𐤉𐤌 (Palashatayam) did this after 𐤀𐤁𐤓𐤄𐤌 (Abaraham) died. So, he unearthed them and began to dig for more wells all the way to 𐤁𐤀𐤓 𐤔𐤁𐤏 (Baar Shabaā), where he made a pact with 𐤀𐤁𐤉𐤌𐤋𐤊 (Abayamalak), just like in the day of his ().

He grew old and became blind. He called his (), 𐤏𐤔𐤅 (Āshau), and directed him to procure some venison for him, in order to receive his blessing. While 𐤏𐤔𐤅 (Āshau) was hunting, 𐤉𐤏𐤒𐤁 (Yaāqab), after listening to his ()’s advice, deceived his blind () by misrepresenting himself as 𐤏𐤔𐤅 (Āshau) and thereby obtained his ()’s blessing, such that 𐤉𐤏𐤒𐤁 (Yaāqab) became the primary heir and 𐤏𐤔𐤅 (Āshau) was left in an inferior position.

Thereafter, he sent his (), 𐤉𐤏𐤒𐤁 (Yaāqab), into 𐤀𐤓𐤌 𐤍𐤄𐤓𐤉𐤌 (Aram Naharayam) to take a 𐤀𐤔𐤄 (ashah) of his ()’s ()’s house. After 20 years working for his uncle 𐤋𐤁𐤍 (Laban), 𐤉𐤏𐤒𐤁 (Yaāqab) returned home. 𐤉𐤏𐤒𐤁 (Yaāqab) reconciled with his twin () 𐤏𐤔𐤅 (Āshau), then 𐤉𐤏𐤒𐤁 (Yaāqab) and 𐤏𐤔𐤅 (Āshau) buried their () in 𐤇𐤁𐤓𐤅𐤍 (Khabarauan) after he died at the age of 180.
