1 (P) Sarah lived 127 years; these were the years of the life of Sarah. 2 (P) 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. 3 (P) And Abraham rose up from before his dead and said to the Hittites, 4 (P) "I am a sojourner and foreigner among you; give me property among you for a burying place, that I may bury my dead out of my sight." 5 (P) The Hittites answered Abraham, 6 (P) "Hear us, my lord; you are a prince of God among us. Bury your dead in the choicest of our tombs. None of us will withhold from you his tomb to hinder you from burying your dead." 7 (P) Abraham rose and bowed to the Hittites, the people of the land.
