Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Jehovah Jireh
(See ABRAHAM; ISAAC.) ("Jehovah will see or provide".) (Genesis 22:14). In Genesis 22:8 Abraham had said, "Elohim will provide for Himself a Lamb." He perceives he has uttered an unconscious prophecy, and that the Elohim in whom he trusted has proved Himself JEHOVAH , in covenant with His people; so that the phrase became a Hebrew proverb, "In the mount (as He provided for Abraham in his' extremity) Jehovah will provide" (for us also in our every extremity). The meaning of Mori-jah," the seeing of Jehovah," implies that it originated in this saying of Abraham, and that "Moriah" in Genesis 22:2 is used by anticipation. Moreover, Solomon built his temple on mount "Moriah" (2 Chronicles 3:1). It is no valid objection that Abraham "saw the place afar off," whereas the temple mount is not conspicuous from a distance (whence Moriah is connected by some with Moreh and "the natural altar on the top of Mount Gerizim", which the Samaritans make the place of the sacrifice); for what is meant in Genesis 22:4 is only that he saw it at some little distance, as far off as the place admitted. (See GERIZIM.) The distance, two days' journey from Beersheba, would bring Abraham and his party to Jerusalem, whereas Gerizim could not be reached in three days.

The Lord will provide
The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Jehovah-Jireh
The margin of our Bible renders it very properly, "the Lord will see or provide." (Genesis 22:14) And the general acceptation of the words in the esteem of believers is, that the Lord will do by all of that character as he did by Abraham, and in every critical moment manifest his grace towards them, in proof that he doth both see and provide for them. This is certainly one sense of the titles, and a blessed one it is: but this is not all. Abraham saith, "to this day in the mount of the Lord shall it be seen;" by which it appears, that the mount of the Lord was to be the place where this provision and sight of JEHOVAH was to be seen. Surely there was a prophecy in these words relating to the very spot of Abraham's mercy, as well as the mercy itself. And was not this with an eye to the Lamb of God, in after-ages to be provided for the whole church, as well as the ram the Lord had then provided for Abraham's burnt offering? Recollect that this mount Moriah was near the spot, if not the very spot itself, afterwards called mount Calvary. And as Abraham's offering was wholly typical, surely nothing could be more suited to the expression in calling the place JEHOVAH Jireh. As if Abraham had said, Here shall be one day seen the wonders of redemption! Here God will, indeed, provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering!
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Jehovah-Jireh
Jehovah will provide, the name given by Abraham to the place where he had been on the point of slaying his son Isaac, Genesis 22:14 . He gave this name in allusion to his answer to Isaac's question in Genesis 22:8 , that God would provide a victim for the sacrifice.
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Jehovah-Jireh
Jehovah will see; i.e., will provide, the name given by Abraham to the scene of his offering up the ram which was caught in the thicket on Mount Moriah. The expression used in Genesis 22:14 , "in the mount of the Lord it shall be seen," has been regarded as equivalent to the saying, "Man's extremity is God's opportunity."
