And Abraham rose up and bowed to the people of the land, to the Hittites.[a] And he spoke with them, saying, “If you are willing[b] that I bury my dead from before me, hear me and intercede for me with Ephron the son of Zohar, that he may sell[c] to me the cave of Machpelah which belongs to him,[d] which is at the end of his field. At full value let him sell[e] it to me in your midst as a burial site.”[f]
