(Hebrew Yehovah' Yireh', יַרְאֶה יְהוָה, Jehovah will see, i.e. provide; Sept. Κύριος ε δεν, Vulg. Dominus videt), the symbolical epithet given by Abraham to the scene of his offering of the ram providentially supplied in place of his son (Genesis 22:14), evidently with allusion to his own reply to Isaac's inquiry (Genesis 22:8).
