Sarah lived one hundred twenty-seven years. These were the years of Sarah's life.
Sarah died in Kiryat-Arba (the same is Hevron), in the land of Kana`an. Avraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for her.
Avraham rose up from before his dead, and spoke to the children of Het, saying,
"I am a stranger and a sojourner with you. Give me a possession of a burying-place with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight."
The children of Het answered Avraham, saying to him,
"Hear us, my lord. You are a prince of God among us. In the choice of our tombs bury your dead. None of us will withhold from you his tomb, but that you may bury your dead."
