Genesis 23

NRS 1 Sarah lived one hundred twenty-seven years; this was the length of Sarah's life. CEB 1 Sarah lived to be 127 years old; this was how long she lived. NRS 2 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. CEB 2 She died in Kiriath-arba, that is, in Hebron, in the land of Canaan; and Abraham cried out in grief and wept for Sarah. NRS 3 Abraham rose up from beside his dead, and said to the Hittites, CEB 3 After he got up from embracing his deceased wife, he spoke with the Hittites: NRS 4 "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. CEB 4 "I am an immigrant and a temporary resident with you. Give me some property for a burial plot among you so that I can bury my deceased wife near me." NRS 5 The Hittites answered Abraham, CEB 5 The Hittites responded to Abraham, NRS 6 "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." CEB 6 "Listen to us, sir. You are an eminent man of God among us. Bury your dead in one of our own select burial sites. None of us will keep our own burial plots from you to bury your dead." NRS 7 Abraham rose and bowed to the Hittites, the people of the land. CEB 7 Abraham rose, bowed to the local citizens the Hittites, NRS 8 He said to them, "If you are willing that I should bury my dead out of my sight, hear me, and entreat for me Ephron son of Zohar, CEB 8 and spoke with them: "If you yourselves allow me to bury my dead near me, listen to me and ask Ephron, Zohar's son, NRS 9 so that he may give me the cave of Machpelah, which he owns; it is at the end of his field. For the full price let him give it to me in your presence as a possession for a burying place." CEB 9 to give me his own cave in Machpelah at the edge of his field. Let him give it to me for the full price, to be witnessed by you, as my own burial property." NRS 10 Now Ephron was sitting among the Hittites; and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the hearing of the Hittites, of all who went in at the gate of his city, CEB 10 Now Ephron was a native Hittite. So Ephron the Hittite responded to Abraham publicly in order that the Hittites and everyone at his city's gate could hear: NRS 11 "No, my lord, hear me; I give you the field, and I give you the cave that is in it; in the presence of my people I give it to you; bury your dead." CEB 11 "No, sir. Listen, I will give you the field, and I will give you the cave in it. In front of my people's witnesses, I will give it to you. Bury your dead!" NRS 12 Then Abraham bowed down before the people of the land. CEB 12 Abraham bowed before the local citizens NRS 13 He said to Ephron in the hearing of the people of the land, "If you only will listen to me! I will give the price of the field; accept it from me, so that I may bury my dead there." CEB 13 and spoke to Ephron publicly in the presence of the local citizens: "If only you would accept my offer. I will give you the price of the field. Take it from me so that I can bury my dead there." NRS 14 Ephron answered Abraham CEB 14 Ephron responded to Abraham, NRS 15 "My lord, listen to me; a piece of land worth four hundred shekels of silver—what is that between you and me? Bury your dead." CEB 15 "Sir, what is four hundred shekels of silver between me and you for the land so that you can bury your dead?" NRS 16 Abraham agreed with Ephron; and Abraham weighed out for Ephron the silver that he had named in the hearing of the Hittites, four hundred shekels of silver, according to the weights current among the merchants. CEB 16 Abraham accepted Ephron's offer and weighed out for Ephron the silver he requested publicly before the Hittites: four hundred shekels of silver at the current rate of exchange. NRS 17 So the field of Ephron in Machpelah, which was to the east of Mamre, the field with the cave that was in it and all the trees that were in the field, throughout its whole area, passed CEB 17 So the field of Ephron in Machpelah near Mamre—the field and the cave in it, and all the trees within the field's boundaries—was officially transferred NRS 18 to Abraham as a possession in the presence of the Hittites, in the presence of all who went in at the gate of his city. CEB 18 to Abraham as his property in the presence of the Hittites and of everyone at his city's gate. NRS 19 After this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah facing Mamre (that is, Hebron) in the land of Canaan CEB 19 After this, Abraham buried his wife Sarah in the cave in the field of Machpelah near Mamre, that is, Hebron, in the land of Canaan. NRS 20 The field and the cave that is in it passed from the Hittites into Abraham's possession as a burying place. CEB 20 The field and the cave in it were officially transferred from the Hittites to Abraham as his burial property.
