Sarah lived one hundred twenty-seven years; this was the length of Sarah's life.
And Sarah died at Kiriath-arba (that is, Hebron) in the land of Canaan; and Abraham went in to mourn for Sarah and to weep for her.
Abraham rose up from beside his dead, and said to the Hittites,
"I am a stranger and an alien residing among you; give me property among you for a burying place, so that I may bury my dead out of my sight."
The Hittites answered Abraham,
"Hear us, my lord; you are a mighty prince among us. Bury your dead in the choicest of our burial places; none of us will withhold from you any burial ground for burying your dead."
