Genesis 23
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And the life of Sara was a hundred and twenty and seven years, the years of the life Sara. 2And Sara died in Qorith Ganbarey (Town of Giants)—this is Khebron, which is in the land of Canaan, and Abraham came to mourn over Sara and to weep for her. 3And Abraham stood up before his dead and he spoke with the sons of Khyth and said to them, 4“I am a settler and a pilgrim with you; give to me the inheritance of a tomb with you and I shall bury my dead before me.” 5And the sons of Khyth answered and they said to Abraham. 6“Hear us our Lord; you are a Prince of God among us. Bury your dead in the best of our tombs. No man of us will deny you his tomb to bury your dead.” 7And Abraham stood and he bowed to the people of the land to the sons of Khyth. 8And he spoke with them and said to them: “If your souls are willing that I bury my dead from before me, hear me and ask for me of Aphron son of Tsakhar, 9And he will give me his double cave that is beside his field for full cost; let him give it to me among you for an inheritance of a tomb.” 10And Aphron dwelt among the sons of Khyth, and Aphron the Khythite answered and said to Abraham before the sons of Khyth and before everyone entering the gate of his city, and he said, 11“No, my Lord, hear me; I have given you the field and I have given the cave in it to you before my sons with me; I give it to you; bury your dead.” 12And Abraham bowed before the people of the land. 13And he said to Aphron before the people of the land, “If you will hear me, I shall give to you the money estimate of the field; take it from me and I shall bury my dead there.” 14And Aphron answered and said to Abraham, 15“My Lord, hear me; the land is four hundred shekels of money. What is it between me and you? Bury your dead.” 16And Abraham listened to Aphron and Abraham weighed for Aphron the money of which he spoke before the sons of Khyth, four hundred shekels of silver that goes to the merchants.

17And the field of Aphron stood that was in Iphtha, next to Mamrey, the field and the cave which was in it, and all the trees in the field that were in the surrounding border. 18To Abraham they were sold before the sons of Khyth and before everyone entering the gate of the city. 19And after this, Abraham buried Sara his wife in the cave of Iphtha in the field that is next to Mamrey; this is Khebron that is in the land of Canaan. 20And the field of the cave remained, and the cave which is in it, for Abraham as an inheritance of the tomb which was with the sons of Khyth.
