The Death of Sarah

1 Sarah lived to be a hundred and twenty-seven years old. 2 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.3 3 Then Abraham rose from beside his dead wife and spoke to the Hittites.a4 He said, 4 "I am an alien and a stranger5 among you. Sell me some property for a burial site here so I can bury my dead.6 5 The Hittites replied to Abraham, 6 "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." 7 Then Abraham rose and bowed down before the people of the land, the Hittites.
