Sarah lived to be a hundred and twenty-seven years old.
She died at Kiriath Arba1 (that is, Hebron)2 in the land of Canaan, and Abraham went to mourn for Sarah and to weep over her.33
Then Abraham rose from beside his dead wife and spoke to the Hittites.a4 He said,
"I am an alien and a stranger5 among you. Sell me some property for a burial site here so I can bury my dead.65
The Hittites replied to Abraham,
"Sir, listen to us. You are a mighty prince7 among us. Bury your dead in the choicest of our tombs. None of us will refuse you his tomb for burying your dead."
Then Abraham rose and bowed down before the people of the land, the Hittites.
