Genesis 35:27-29

Context

35:27 So Jacob came back to his father Isaac in Mamre, 1  to Kiriath Arba 2  (that is, Hebron), where Abraham and Isaac had stayed. 3  35:28 Isaac lived to be 180 years old. 4  35:29 Then Isaac breathed his last and joined his ancestors. 5  He died an old man who had lived a full life. 6  His sons Esau and Jacob buried him.

4 tn Heb “And the days of Isaac were one hundred and eighty years.”

5 tn Heb “and Isaac expired and died and he was gathered to his people.” In the ancient Israelite view he joined his deceased ancestors in Sheol, the land of the dead.
