Genesis 23 Text (WEB)
  1. Sarah lived one hundred twenty-seven years. This was the length of Sarah's life.
  2. 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.
  3. Abraham rose up from before his dead, and spoke to the children of Heth, saying,
  4. "I am a stranger and a foreigner living with you. Give me a possession of a burying-place with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight."
  5. The children of Heth answered Abraham, saying to him,
  6. "Hear us, my lord. You are a prince of God among us. Bury your dead in the best of our tombs. None of us will withhold from you his tomb. Bury your dead."
  7. Abraham rose up, and bowed himself to the people of the land, even to the children of Heth.
  8. He talked with them, saying, "If it be your mind that I should bury my dead out of my sight, hear me, and entreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar,
  9. that he may give me the cave of Machpelah, which he has, which is in the end of his field. For the full price let him give it to me among you for a possession of a burying-place."
  10. Now Ephron was sitting in the middle of the children of Heth. Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the hearing of the children of Heth, even of all who went in at the gate of his city, saying,
  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 the children of my people I give it to you. Bury your dead."
  12. Abraham bowed himself down before the people of the land.
  13. He spoke to Ephron in the audience of the people of the land, saying, "But if you will, please hear me. I will give the price of the field. Take it from me, and I will bury my dead there."
  14. Ephron answered Abraham, saying to him,
  15. "My lord, listen to me. What is a piece of land worth four hundred shekels of silver between me and you? Therefore bury your dead."
  16. Abraham listened to Ephron. Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver which he had named in the audience of the children of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, according to the current merchants' standard.
  17. So the field of Ephron, which was in Machpelah, which was before Mamre, the field, the cave which was in it, and all the trees that were in the field, that were in all of its borders, were deeded
  18. to Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of Heth, before all who went in at the gate of his city.
  19. After this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre (that is, Hebron), in the land of Canaan.
  20. The field, and the cave that is in it, were deeded to Abraham for a possession of a burying place by the children of Heth.
Genesis 23 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ויהיו חיי שרה מאה שנה ועשרים שנה ושבע שנים שני חיי שרה׃
  2. ותמת שרה בקרית ארבע הוא חברון בארץ כנען ויבא אברהם לספד לשרה ולבכתה׃
  3. ויקם אברהם מעל פני מתו וידבר אל־בני־חת לאמר׃
  4. גר־ותושב אנכי עםכם תנו לי אחזת־קבר עםכם ואקברה מתי מלפני׃
  5. ויענו בני־חת את־אברהם לאמר לו׃
  6. שמענו אדני נשיא אלהים אתה בתוכנו במבחר קברינו קבר את־מתך איש ממנו את־קברו לא־יכלה ממך מקבר מתך׃
  7. ויקם אברהם וישתחו לעם־הארץ לבני־חת׃
  8. וידבר אתם לאמר אם־יש את־נפשכם לקבר את־מתי מלפני שמעוני ופגעו־לי בעפרון בן־צחר׃
  9. ויתן־לי את־מערת המכפלה אשר־לו אשר בקצה שדהו בכסף מלא יתננה לי בתוככם לאחזת־קבר׃
  10. ועפרון ישב בתוך בני־חת ויען עפרון החתי את־אברהם באזני בני־חת לכל באי שער־עירו לאמר׃
  11. לא־אדני שמעני השדה נתתי לך והמערה אשר־בו לך נתתיה לעיני בני־עמי נתתיה לך קבר מתך׃
  12. וישתחו אברהם לפני עם הארץ׃
  13. וידבר אל־עפרון באזני עם־הארץ לאמר אך אם־אתה לו שמעני נתתי כסף השדה קח ממני ואקברה את־מתי שמה׃
  14. ויען עפרון את־אברהם לאמר לו׃
  15. אדני שמעני ארץ ארבע מאת שקל־כסף ביני ובינך מה־הוא ואת־מתך קבר׃
  16. וישמע אברהם אל־עפרון וישקל אברהם לעפרן את־הכסף אשר דבר באזני בני־חת ארבע מאות שקל כסף עבר לסחר׃
  17. ויקם שדה עפרון אשר במכפלה אשר לפני ממרא השדה והמערה אשר־בו וכל־העץ אשר בשדה אשר בכל־גבלו סביב׃
  18. לאברהם למקנה לעיני בני־חת בכל באי שער־עירו׃
  19. ואחרי־כן קבר אברהם את־שרה אשתו אל־מערת שדה המכפלה על־פני ממרא הוא חברון בארץ כנען׃
  20. ויקם השדה והמערה אשר־בו לאברהם לאחזת־קבר מאת בני־חת׃ ס

Genesis 23 Text (Latin)
  1. Vixit autem Sara centum viginti septem annis.
  2. Et mortua est in civitate Arbee, quæ est Hebron, in terra Chanaan : venitque Abraham ut plangeret et fleret eam.
  3. Cumque surrexisset ab officio funeris, locutus est ad filios Heth, dicens :
  4. Advena sum et peregrinus apud vos : date mihi jus sepulchri vobiscum, ut sepeliam mortuum meum.
  5. Responderunt filii Heth, dicentes :
  6. Audi nos, domine : princeps Dei es apud nos : in electis sepulchris nostris sepeli mortuum tuum, nullusque te prohibere poterit quin in monumento ejus sepelias mortuum tuum.
  7. Surrexit Abraham, et adoravit populum terræ, filios videlicet Heth :
  8. dixitque ad eos : Si placet animæ vestræ ut sepeliam mortuum meum, audite me, et intercedite pro me apud Ephron filium Seor :
  9. ut det mihi speluncam duplicem, quam habet in extrema parte agri sui : pecunia digna tradat eam mihi coram vobis in possessionem sepulchri.
  10. Habitabat autem Ephron in medio filiorum Heth. Responditque Ephron ad Abraham, cunctis audientibus qui ingrediebantur portam civitatis illius, dicens :
  11. Nequaquam ita fiat, domine mi, sed tu magis ausculta quod loquor. Agrum trado tibi, et speluncam quæ in eo est, præsentibus filiis populi mei ; sepeli mortuum tuum.
  12. Adoravit Abraham coram populo terræ.
  13. Et locutus est ad Ephron circumstante plebe : Quæso ut audias me : dabo pecuniam pro agro : suscipe eam, et sic sepeliam mortuum meum in eo.
  14. Responditque Ephron :
  15. Domine mi, audi me : terra, quam postulas, quadringentis siclis argenti valet : istud est pretium inter me et te : sed quantum est hoc ? sepeli mortuum tuum.
  16. Quod cum audisset Abraham, appendit pecuniam, quam Ephron postulaverat, audientibus filiis Heth, quadringentos siclos argenti probatæ monetæ publicæ.
  17. Confirmatusque est ager quondam Ephronis, in quo erat spelunca duplex, respiciens Mambre, tam ipse, quam spelunca, et omnes arbores ejus in cunctis terminis ejus per circuitum,
  18. Abrahæ in possessionem, videntibus filiis Heth, et cunctis qui intrabant portam civitatis illius.
  19. Atque ita sepelivit Abraham Saram uxorem suam in spelunca agri duplici, quæ respiciebat Mambre. Hæc est Hebron in terra Chanaan.
  20. Et confirmatus est ager, et antrum quod erat in eo, Abrahæ in possessionem monumenti a filiis Heth.
Genesis 23 Text (KJV)
  1. And Sarah was an hundred and seven and twenty years old: these were the years of the life of Sarah.
  2. And Sarah died in Kirjath-arba; the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan: and Abraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for her.
  3. And Abraham stood up from before his dead, and spake unto the sons of Heth, saying,
  4. I am a stranger and a sojourner with you: give me a possession of a buryingplace with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight.
  5. And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying unto him,
  6. Hear us, my lord: thou art a mighty prince among us: in the choice of our sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from thee his sepulchre, but that thou mayest bury thy dead.
  7. And Abraham stood up, and bowed himself to the people of the land, even to the children of Heth.
  8. And he communed with them, saying, If it be your mind that I should bury my dead out of my sight; hear me, and intreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar,
  9. That he may give me the cave of Machpelah, which he hath, which is in the end of his field; for as much money as it is worth he shall give it me for a possession of a buryingplace amongst you.
  10. And Ephron dwelt among the children of Heth: and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the audience of the children of Heth, even of all that went in at the gate of his city, saying,
  11. Nay, my lord, hear me: the field give I thee, and the cave that is therein, I give it thee; in the presence of the sons of my people give I it thee: bury thy dead.
  12. And Abraham bowed down himself before the people of the land.
  13. And he spake unto Ephron in the audience of the people of the land, saying, But if thou wilt give it, I pray thee, hear me: I will give thee money for the field; take it of me, and I will bury my dead there.
  14. And Ephron answered Abraham, saying unto him,
  15. My lord, hearken unto me: the land is worth four hundred shekels of silver; what is that betwixt me and thee? bury therefore thy dead.
  16. And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver, which he had named in the audience of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current money with the merchant.
  17. And the field of Ephron, which was in Machpelah, which was before Mamre, the field, and the cave which was therein, and all the trees that were in the field, that were in all the borders round about, were made sure
  18. Unto Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of Heth, before all that went in at the gate of his city.
  19. And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre: the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan.
  20. And the field, and the cave that is therein, were made sure unto Abraham for a possession of a buryingplace by the sons of Heth.
