Pirkei Avos 5:4
(Our forefather Abraham was tested with ten trials, and he withstood them all – to show the degree of our forefather Abraham’s love for God.)
There are different lists of the “trials” found in Pirkei d’Rabbi Eliezer, Avos d’Rabbi Natan, Midrash Tehillim and the Meiri on Avos
The 10 Trials of Abraham reflects biblical and midrashic references as well as visual appropriations of classical and contemporary artworks.
