Genesis 23:3-15 [ Verse 3 in Original: Hebrew / Greek ]

3 Then Abraham rose from before his dead, and spoke to the sons R591 of Heth, saying, 4 "I am a R592 stranger and a sojourner among you; give R593 me a F388 burial R594 site among you that I may bury my dead out of my sight." 5 The sons of Heth answered Abraham, saying to him, 6 "Hear us, my lord, you are a mighty R595 F389 prince among us; bury your dead in the choicest of our graves; none of us will refuse you his grave for burying your dead." 7 So Abraham rose and bowed to the people of the land, the sons of Heth. 8 And he spoke with them, saying, "If it is your wish F390 for me to bury my dead out of my sight, hear me, and approach Ephron R596 the son of Zohar for me, 9 that he may give me the cave of Machpelah which he owns, which is at the end of his field; for the full price let him give it to me in your F391 presence for a F392 burial site." 10 Now Ephron was sitting among the sons of Heth; and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the hearing of the sons of Heth; even of R597 all who went in at the gate of his city, saying, 11 "No, my lord, hear me; I R598 give you the field, and I give you the cave that is in it. In the presence of the sons of my people I give it to you; bury your dead." 12 And Abraham bowed before the people of the land. 13 He spoke to Ephron in the hearing of the people of the land, saying, "If you will only please listen to me; I will give the price of the field, accept it from me that I may bury my dead there." 14 Then Ephron answered Abraham, saying to him, 15 "My lord, listen to me; a piece of land worth four hundred shekels R599 of silver, what is that between me and you? So bury your dead."
