And Sarah
<08283>
was an hundred
<03967> <08141>
and seven
<07651> <08141>
and twenty
<06242>
years
<08141>
old
<02416>_:
[these were] the years
<08141>
of the life
<02416>
of Sarah
<08283>_.
And Sarah
<08283>
died
<04191> (8799)
in Kirjatharba
<07153>_;
the same [is] Hebron
<02275>
in the land
<0776>
of Canaan
<03667>_:
and Abraham
<085>
came
<0935> (8799)
to mourn
<05594> (8800)
for Sarah
<08283>_,
and to weep
<01058> (8800)
for her.
And Abraham
<085>
stood up
<06965> (8799)
from before
<06440>
his dead
<04191> (8801)_,
and spake
<01696> (8762)
unto the sons
<01121>
of Heth
<02845>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
I [am] a stranger
<01616>
and a sojourner
<08453>
with you: give
<05414> (8798)
me a possession
<0272>
of a buryingplace
<06913>
with you, that I may bury
<06912> (8799)
my dead
<04191> (8801)
out of my sight
<06440>_.
And the children
<01121>
of Heth
<02845>
answered
<06030> (8799)
Abraham
<085>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)
unto him,
Hear us
<08085> (8798)_,
my lord
<0113>_:
thou [art] a mighty
<0430>
prince
<05387>
among us
<08432>_:
in the choice
<04005>
of our sepulchres
<06913>
bury
<06912> (8798)
thy dead
<04191> (8801)_;
none
<03808> <0376>
of us shall withhold
<03607> (8799)
from thee his sepulchre
<06913>_,
but that thou mayest bury
<06912> (8800)
thy dead
<04191> (8801)_.
{a mighty...: Heb. a prince of God}
And Abraham
<085>
stood up
<06965> (8799)_,
and bowed
<07812> (8691)
himself to the people
<05971>
of the land
<0776>_,
[even] to the children
<01121>
of Heth
<02845>_.
And he communed
<01696> (8762)
with them, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
If it be
<03426>
your mind
<05315>
that I should bury
<06912> (8800)
my dead
<04191> (8801)
out of my sight
<06440>_;
hear
<08085> (8798)
me, and intreat
<06293> (8798)
for me to Ephron
<06085>
the son
<01121>
of Zohar
<06714>_,
That he may give
<05414> (8799)
me the cave
<04631>
of Machpelah
<04375>_,
which he hath, which [is] in the end
<07097>
of his field
<07704>_;
for as much
<04392> (0)
money
<03701>
as it is worth
<04392>
he shall give it
<05414> (8799)
me for a possession
<0272>
of a buryingplace
<06913>
amongst you
<08432>_.
{as much...: Heb. full money}
And Ephron
<06085>
dwelt
<03427> (8802)
among
<08432>
the children
<01121>
of Heth
<02845>_:
and Ephron
<06085>
the Hittite
<02850>
answered
<06030> (8799)
Abraham
<085>
in the audience
<0241>
of the children
<01121>
of Heth
<02845>_,
[even] of all that went in
<0935> (8802)
at the gate
<08179>
of his city
<05892>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
{audience: Heb. ears}
Nay
<03808>_,
my lord
<0113>_,
hear me
<08085> (8798)_:
the field
<07704>
give I
<05414> (8804)
thee, and the cave
<04631>
that [is] therein, I give it
<05414> (8804)
thee; in the presence
<05869>
of the sons
<01121>
of my people
<05971>
give
<05414> (8804)
I it thee: bury
<06912> (8798)
thy dead
<04191> (8801)_.
And Abraham
<085>
bowed down
<07812> (8691)
himself before
<06440>
the people
<05971>
of the land
<0776>_.
And he spake
<01696> (8762)
unto Ephron
<06085>
in the audience
<0241>
of the people
<05971>
of the land
<0776>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
But if thou [wilt give it], I pray thee
<03863>_,
hear
<08085> (8798)
me: I will give
<05414> (8804)
thee money
<03701>
for the field
<07704>_;
take
<03947> (8798)
[it] of me, and I will bury
<06912> (8799)
my dead
<04191> (8801)
there.
And Ephron
<06085>
answered
<06030> (8799)
Abraham
<085>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)
unto him,
My lord
<0113>_,
hearken
<08085> (8798)
unto me: the land
<0776>
[is worth] four
<0702>
hundred
<03967>

<08255>
of silver
<03701>_;
what [is] that betwixt
<0996>
me and thee? bury

therefore thy dead
<04191> (8801)_.
And Abraham
<085>
hearkened
<08085> (8799)
unto Ephron
<06085>_;
and Abraham
<085>
weighed
<08254> (8799)
to Ephron
<06085>
the silver
<03701>_,
which he had named
<01696> (8765)
in the audience
<0241>
of the sons
<01121>
of Heth
<02845>_,
four
<0702>
hundred
<03967>
shekels
<08255>
of silver
<03701>_,
current
<05674> (8802)
[money] with the merchant
<05503> (8802)_.
And the field
<07704>
of Ephron
<06085>_,
which [was] in Machpelah
<04375>_,
which [was] before
<06440>
Mamre
<04471>_,
the field
<07704>_,
and the cave
<04631>
which [was] therein, and all the trees
<06086>
that [were] in the field
<07704>_,
that [were] in all the borders
<01366>

<06965> (8799)
Unto Abraham
<085>
for a possession
<04736>
in the presence
<05869>
of the children

of Heth
<02845>_,
before all that went in
<0935> (8802)
at the gate
<08179>
of his city
<05892>_.
And after
<0310>
this
<03651>_,
Abraham
<085>
buried
<06912> (8804)
Sarah
<08283>
his wife
<0802>

<04631>
of the field
<07704>
of Machpelah
<04375>
before
