Chapter 23

1

And Sarah was an hundred 8141 and seven 8141 and twenty years old: [these were] the years of the life of Sarah.

2

And Sarah died4 in Kirjatharba; the same [is] Hebron in the land of Canaan: and Abraham came4 to mourn2 for Sarah, and to weep2 for her.

3

And Abraham stood up4 from before his dead,5 and spake17 unto the sons of Heth, saying,2

4

I [am] a stranger and a sojourner with you: give3 me a possession of a buryingplace with you, that I may bury4 my dead5 out of my sight.

5

And the children of Heth answered4 Abraham, saying2 unto him,

6

Hear3 us, my lord: thou [art] a mighty prince among us: in the choice of our sepulchres bury3 thy dead;5 none of us shall withhold4 from thee his sepulchre, but that thou mayest bury2 thy dead.5

7

And Abraham stood up,4 and bowed101 himself to the people of the land, [even] to the children of Heth.

8

And he communed17 with them, saying,2 If it be your mind that I should bury2 my dead5 out of my sight; hear3 me, and intreat3 for me to Ephron the son of Zohar,

9

That he may give4 me the cave of Machpelah, which he hath, which [is] in the end of his field; for as much money as it is worth he shall give4 it me for a possession of a buryingplace amongst you.

10

And Ephron dwelt6 among the children of Heth: and Ephron the Hittite answered4 Abraham in the audience of the children of Heth, [even] of all that went in6 at the gate of his city, saying,2

11

Nay, my lord, hear3 me: the field give1 I thee, and the cave that [is] therein, I give1 it thee; in the presence of the sons of my people give1 I it thee: bury3 thy dead.5

12

And Abraham bowed down101 himself before the people of the land.

13

And he spake17 unto Ephron in the audience of the people of the land, saying,2 But if thou [wilt give it], I pray thee, hear3 me: I will give1 thee money for the field; take3 [it] of me, and I will bury4 my dead5 there.

14

And Ephron answered4 Abraham, saying2 unto him,

15

My lord, hearken3 unto me: the land [is worth] four hundred shekels of silver; what [is] that betwixt me and thee? bury3 therefore thy dead.5

16

And Abraham hearkened4 unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed4 to Ephron the silver, which he had named14 in the audience of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current6 [money] with the merchant.6

17

And the field of Ephron, which [was] in Machpelah, which [was] before Mamre, the field, and the cave which [was] therein, and all the trees that [were] in the field, that [were] in all the borders round about, were made sure4

18

Unto Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of Heth, before all that went in6 at the gate of his city.

19

And after this, Abraham buried1 Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre: the same [is] Hebron in the land of Canaan.

20

And the field, and the cave that [is] therein, were made sure4 unto Abraham for a possession of a buryingplace by the sons of Heth.
