Text heard on Sample:
Singers: And it came to pass, after these things, that God put Abraham to the test and He said to him "Abraham" and he said "Here I am".

Speaker: ...sort of testing, testing a metal for strength.

Singers: And He said: "Take now your son, your favoured one, whom you love, Isaac. And go to the land of Moriah and offer him as a burnt offering."

Speaker: Until you push yourself right to the edge, you don't actually know if you've got it in you or not.
