Elle est mort

Genesis 23

Sarah dies at the age of 127. The rest of the chapter Abraham is negotiating for burial land, a specific cave. The people want to give it to him, he wants to purchase it.

Discussion:
The footnotes say that this chapter is mostly about the Hittites accepting Abraham’s right to land, even though he is an immigrant. I wish I could say more, but it is mostly Abraham going about trying to buy land, and the Hittites trying to give it to him.

Lessons I Learned:

  • If you are a religious leader, people will give you things you want, even if you can easily afford them.
