Genesis 23:1-7 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Sarah lived to be 127 years old. This was the length of her life. 2 She died in Kiriath Arba (that is, Hebron) in Canaan. Abraham went to mourn for Sarah and to cry about her death. 3 Then Abraham left the side of his dead wife and spoke to the Hittites, 4 "I'm a stranger with no permanent home. Let me have some of your property for a tomb so that I can bury my dead wife. 5 The Hittites answered Abraham, 6 "Listen to us, sir. You are a mighty leader among us. Bury your dead in one of our best tombs. Not one of us will withhold from you his tomb for burying your dead." 7 Abraham got up in front of the Hittites, the people of that region, and bowed with his face touching the ground.
