Morrish Bible Dictionary
The land in which was situated the mount on which Abraham was told to offer his son Isaac. Genesis 22:2 . The name of the mountain is not recorded. On the third day after leaving Beer-sheba, Abraham saw the mount afar off, and it was doubtless some lonely spot suitable for such an incident. The Jews say it was the mount bearing this name in Jerusalem. The Samaritans and some modern authorities judge it to have been Gerizim; but it is unknown.
