Isaac was doing his best to ignore the school bully, as the guy was being his usual self. Then he heard God say, "Help him". Isaac hesitated, thinking, "say what." Then he heard it again, "Help him". Isaac knew that when God spoke it was best to listen and obey. It didn't matter if he thought God was crazy, or that his friends thought he was nuts, or if he was afraid of getting pounded into the ground, or how hard a task it might be. So he vowed he would, with the Lord's help, do his best to help Ned. And he prayed.
