And Sara lived a hundred and twenty-seven years.
And she died in the city of Arbee which is Hebron, in the land of Chanaan: and Abraham came to mourn and weep for her.
And after he rose up from the funeral obsequies, he spoke to the children of Heth, saying:
I am a stranger and sojourner among you: give me the right of a burying place with you, that I may bury my dead.
The children of Heth answered, saying:
My lord, hear us, thou art a prince of God among us: bury thy dead in our principal sepulchres: and no man shall have power to hinder thee from burying thy dead in his sepulchre.
