Sarah's Death and Burial

1 Sarah lived 127 years; these were the years of the life of Sarah. 2 And Sarah died at 1Kiriath-arba (that is, 2Hebron) in the land of Canaan, and Abraham went in to mourn for Sarah and to weep for her. 3 And Abraham rose up from before his dead and said to the Hittites,a 4 3"I am a sojourner and foreigner among you; 4give me property among you for a burying place, that I may bury my dead out of my sight. 5 The Hittites answered Abraham, 6 "Hear us, my lord; you are a prince of Godb among us. Bury your dead in the choicest of our tombs. None of us will withhold from you his tomb to hinder you from burying your dead."
