I just went through 32 translations, and thus present:
2 instances of 'tempted'
2 instances of 'tried'
1 instance of 'assayed'
27 instances of 'tested'
But beyond that, I did some research and found this:
"According to the Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon, the word "test" (NASB), "tempt" (KJV) is nacah. It means "1) to test, try, 2) to attempt, assay, try, 3) to test, try, prove, tempt." This is why the KJV translated it as "tempt" and NASB, NIV, NKJV, ESV, and RSV translate it as "test." Therefore, it was a test that God offered to Abraham, not a temptation to sin."
Furthermore, I'd like to point out that at no point did God ever give Abraham any sort of temptation, God instead gave him an order. In this context, 'test' is a better translation than 'tempt'.
If you'd like, you can have a look at the possible translations of the original word 'nacah': http://www.studylight.org/lex/heb/view.cgi?number=05254
