Sarah lived one hundred twenty-seven years. These were the years of Sarah's life.
Sarah died in Kiriath-arba (the same is Hebron), in the land of Canaan. Abraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for her.
Abraham rose up from before his dead, and spoke to the children of Heth, 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 Heth answered Abraham, 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."
Abraham rose up, and bowed himself to the people of the land, even to the children of Heth.
