Compare these translations with the New Jewish Publication Society (NJPS) versions: “Some time afterward, God put Abraham to the test. He said to him, ‘Abraham,’ and he answered, ‘Here I am.’” (Genesis 22:1); and “When Joseph came up to his brothers, they stripped Joseph of his tunic, the ornamental tunic that he was wearing, and took him and cast him into the pit. The pit was empty; there was no water in it” (Genesis 37:23–24).
