Sarah’s Death and Burial

1 And {Sarah lived}a one hundred and twenty-seven years; [these were] the years of the life of Sarah. 2 And Sarah died in Kiriath Arba; that [is] Hebron, in the land of Canaan. 3 And Abraham went to mourn for Sarah and to weep for her. And Abraham rose up from his dead, and he spoke to the Hittitesb [and] said, 4 "I [am] a stranger and an alien among you; give to me {my own burial site}c among you so that I may bury my dead from before me. 5 And the Hittitesd answered Abraham [and] said to him, 6 "Hear us, my lord, you [are] a mighty princee in our midst. Bury your dead in the choicest of our burial sites. None of us {will withhold his burial site}f from you [for] burying your dead."
