Genesis 23

The age and death of Sarah.

Genesis 23:1 And the life of Sarah is a hundred and twenty and seven years—years of the life of Sarah; Genesis 23:2 and Sarah dieth in Kirjath-Arba, which [is] Hebron, in the land of Caanan, and Abraham goeth in to mourn for Sarah, and to bewail her.

The purchase of Machpelah,

Genesis 23:3 And Abraham riseth up from the presence of his dead, and speaketh unto the sons of Heth, saying, Genesis 23:4 'A sojourner and a settler I [am] with you; give to me a possession of a burying-place with you, and I bury my dead from before me.' Genesis 23:5 And the sons of Heth answer Abraham, saying to him, Genesis 23:6 'Hear us, my lord; a prince of God [art] thou in our midst; in the choice of our burying-places bury thy dead: none of us his burying-place doth withhold from thee, from burying thy dead.' Genesis 23:7 And Abraham riseth and boweth himself to the people of the land, to the sons of Heth, Genesis 23:8 and he speaketh with them, saying, 'If it is your desire to bury my dead from before me, hear me, and meet for me with Ephron, son of Zoar; Genesis 23:9 and he giveth to me the cave of Machpelah, which he hath, which [is] in the extremity of his field; for full money doth he give it to me, in your midst, for a possession of a burying-place.' Genesis 23:10 And Ephron is sitting in the midst of the sons of Heth, and Ephron the Hittite answereth Abraham in the ears of the sons of Heth, of all those entering the gate of his city, saying, Genesis 23:11 'Nay, my lord, hear me: the field I have given to thee, and the cave that [is] in it, to thee I have given it; before the eyes of the sons of my people I have given it to thee—bury thy dead.' Genesis 23:12 And Abraham boweth himself before the people of the land, Genesis 23:13 and speaketh unto Ephron in the ears of the people of the land, saying, 'Only—if thou wouldest hear me—I have given the money of the field—accept from me, and I bury my dead there.' Genesis 23:14 And Ephron answereth Abraham, saying to him, Genesis 23:15 'My lord, hear me: the land—four hundred shekels of silver; between me and thee, what [is] it?—thy dead bury.' Genesis 23:16 And Abraham hearkeneth unto Ephron, and Abraham weigheth to Ephron the silver which he hath spoken of in the ears of the sons of Heth, four hundred silver shekels, passing with the merchant.

Genesis 23:17 And established are the field of Ephron, which [is] in Machpelah, which [is] before Mamre, the field and the cave which [is] in it, and all the trees which [are] in the field, which [are] in all its border round about, Genesis 23:18 to Abraham by purchase, before the eyes of the sons of Heth, among all entering the gate of his city.

Genesis 23:19 And after this hath Abraham buried Sarah his wife at the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre (which [is] Hebron), in the land of Canaan; Genesis 23:20 and established are the field, and the cave which [is] in it, to Abraham for a possession of a burying-place, from the sons of Heth.
