Also in the old scripts it says "tento" which means tempt but the translation over time got it to be "tested" for some reason ..

This just proves the general contradictions in the bible where everything is rewritten every few years.

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
