:B:1Sarah lived a hundred and twenty- seven years. 2She died at Kiria tharbathat is Hebronin the land of Canaan, and Abraham went in to weep and mourn for Sarah.
3Abraham left his dead one 4and spoke to the Hittites, I am only a stranger among you
12Abraham bowed before the people of the land and spoke to Ephron in the hearing of the people of the land, 13 Ah, if only you will listen to me, I will give you the price of the land. Accept it from me that I may bury my dead there.14Ephron replied to Abraham, My lord, hear me. 15Four hundred silver coins for a piece of land, is it not the right price for both of us? Bury your dead. 16Abraham agreed with Ephron and he weighed out for Ephron the silver he had insisted on in the hearing of the Hittites, four hundred silver coins, in merchants coins.
17And so Ephrons field in Machpelah, to the east of Mamre, the field with the cave in it, and all the trees in the field, throughout its entire area, 18was ac quired by Abraham as his possession in the presence of the Hittites and of all who went in at the gate of their city.19After this Abraham buried his wife Sarah in the cave of Machpelah.20The unused field and the cave that is in it were given to Abraham as a possession for a burying place by the Hittites.
