3 And Abraham stood up from before his dead, and spoke to the sons of Heth, saying,
4 I [am] a stranger and a sojourner with you; give me a possession of a burying-place with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight.
5 And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying to him,
6 Hear us, my lord; thou [art] a mighty prince among us: in the choice of our sepulchers bury thy dead: none of us will withhold from thee his sepulcher, but that thou mayest bury thy dead.
7 And Abraham stood up and bowed himself to the people of the land, to the children of Heth.
