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.

I only know seven, so sorry if this doesn't help, but here goes: 1 and 2 taught Abraham to depend on God for material needs and personal safety, but he failed both. 3 tested Abraham's ability to depend on God despite stress and division in his family. He passed this test and revealed the value of an unselfish spirit. For test 4, he had to rescue Lot from an invading army testing his loyalty. He pasted this, and proved his concern for his family. Test five taught him to wait for his baby, Isaac, to be born. Sadly, he didn't pass this and God punished him for it. Test number 6 had to do with Abraham's willingness to remain strong against the tempting pleas of loved ones. He would always give into his wife whenever she wanted to disobey the Lord. But, he failed. The last test that I know of was the hardest. He was tested in how well he could put God first. He had to go to Mt. Sinai (or some mountain) and sacrifice his only son. He passed and the Lord rewarded both him and Isaac for their willingness to obey the Lord. Hope this helps and hope you can find the other three!
