3 And when he had risen up from the funeral duties, he spoke to the sons of Heth, saying:
4 'I am a newcomer and a sojourner among you. Give me the right of a sepulcher among you, so that I may bury my dead.'
5 The sons of Heth responded by saying:
6 'Hear us, O lord, you are a leader of God among us. Bury your dead in our chosen sepulchers. And no man shall be able to prohibit you from burying your dead within his memorial.'
7 Abraham arose, and he reverenced the people of the land, namely, the sons of Heth.
