Below is a list of the trials of Abraham.According to Rashi: 1) Abraham hid underground for thirteen years from King Nimrod, who wanted to kill him. 2) Nimrod flung Abraham into a burning bush. 3) Abraham was commanded to leave his family and homeland. 4) Almost as soon as he arrived in Canaan, he was forced to leave to escape a famine. 5) Sarah was kidnapped by Pharaoh’s officials. 6) The kings captured Lot, and Abraham was forced to go to war to rescue him. 7) God told Abraham that his offspring would suffer under four monarchies. 8) At an advanced age, he was commanded to circumcise himself and his son. 9) He was commanded to drive away Ishmael and Hagar. 10) He was commanded to sacrifice Isaac.
According to Rambam:1) Abraham’s exile from his family and homeland. 2) The hunger in Canaan after God assured him that he would become a great nation there. 3) The corruption in Egypt that resulted in the abduction of Sarah. 4) The war with the four kings. 5) His marriage to Hagar after having despaired that Sarah would ever give birth. 6) The commandment of circumcision. 7) Abimelech’s abduction of Sarah. 8) Driving away Hagar after she had given birth. 9) The very distasteful command to drive away Ishmael. 10) The binding of Isaac on the altar.
