Sarah lived to be 127 years old.
She died in Hebron in the land of Canaan, and Abraham mourned her death.
He left the place where his wife's body was lying, went to the Hittites, and said,
"I am a foreigner living here among you; sell me some land, so that I can bury my wife."
"Listen to us, sir. We look upon you as a mighty leader; bury your wife in the best grave that we have. Any of us would be glad to give you a grave, so that you can bury her."
Then Abraham bowed before them
and said, "If you are willing to let me bury my wife here, please ask Ephron son of Zohar
to sell me Machpelah Cave, which is near the edge of his field. Ask him to sell it to me for its full price, here in your presence, so that I can own it as a burial ground."
