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.

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.
