Genesis Chapter 23   
  
   King James Version

  
     1 And Sarah was an hundred and seven and twenty years old: [these were] the years of the life of Sarah. [jfb]   2 And Sarah died in Kirjatharba; the same [is] Hebron in the land of Canaan: and Abraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for her. [jfb] [jwc]   3 And Abraham stood up from before his dead, and spake unto the sons of Heth, saying, [gsn] [jfb]   4 I [am] a stranger and a sojourner with you: give me a possession of a buryingplace with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight. [jwc]   5 And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying unto him,   6 Hear us, my lord: thou [art] a mighty prince among us: in the choice of our sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from thee his sepulchre, but that thou mayest bury thy dead. [gsn] [jwc]   7 And Abraham stood up, and bowed himself to the people of the land, [even] to the children of Heth. [jwc]   8 And he communed with them, saying, If it be your mind that I should bury my dead out of my sight; hear me, and intreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar,   9 That he may give 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 give it me for a possession of a buryingplace amongst you. [jfb]   10 And Ephron dwelt among the children of Heth: and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the audience of the children of Heth, [even] of all that went in at the gate of his city, saying, [gsn] [jfb]   11 Nay, my lord, hear me: the field give I thee, and the cave that [is] therein, I give it thee; in the presence of the sons of my people give I it thee: bury thy dead. [jfb] [jwc]   12 And Abraham bowed down himself before the people of the land. [gsn]   13 And he spake unto Ephron in the audience of the people of the land, saying, But if thou [wilt give it], I pray thee, hear me: I will give thee money for the field; take [it] of me, and I will bury my dead there. [jwc]   14 And Ephron answered Abraham, saying unto him,   15 My lord, hearken unto me: the land [is worth] four hundred shekels of silver; what [is] that betwixt me and thee? bury therefore thy dead. [gsn] [jfb] [jwc]   16 And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver, which he had named in the audience of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current [money] with the merchant. [jfb]   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 sure   18 Unto Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of Heth, before all that went in at the gate of his city.   19 And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre: the same [is] Hebron in the land of Canaan. [jfb]   20 And the field, and the cave that [is] therein, were made sure unto Abraham for a possession of a buryingplace by the sons of Heth. [gsn] [jwc]
