And his axe was made of gold
Idea that there are multiple stories of Abraham and Isaac. Most involve Abraham being willing to sacrifice his son Isaac, but ultimately being ordered to not follow through. Test of faith theme. Other versions hold that he did it, and was compelled to do it, as punishment for his casting out of his earlier son Ishmael and his mother, Hagar, demonstrating indifference as to whether they lived or died.
The truth having to do with the form of sacrificial altar.
If there is ever a truth in recollection, or analogy:
And you never have been tempted
By a demon or a god
