the cave in the field of Machpelah,5 near Mamre6 in Canaan, which Abraham bought as a burial place7 from Ephron the Hittite, along with the field.831
There Abraham9 and his wife Sarah10 were buried, there Isaac and his wife Rebekah11 were buried, and there I buried Leah.1232
The field and the cave in it were bought from the Hittites.a13 "
