This Hebrew song by iconic Israeli singer, Naomi Shemer, tells the biblical story of the Binding of Isaac, as told in Genesis Chapter 22. According to Jewish tradition, God commanded Abraham to sacrifice his son on Mount Moriah, on what would later become the site of the Temple. As Abraham approached Jerusalem from the south, it is believed that the promenade of Armon Hanatziv may have been the lookout point from which he first spotted the mountain, as described in verse 4.
