Genesis 1, 2,
21, 22, 23,
Genesis 23:1 And Sarah was an hundred and seven and twenty years old: these were
the years of the life of Sarah.
2 And Sarah died in Kirjath-arba; the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan: and
Abraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for her.
Sarah was an 127 hundred years old
3 And Abraham stood up from before his dead, and spake unto the sons of Heth,
Sarah died in Kirjath-arba at the age 127
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.
Heth = terror, the forefather of the nation of
the Hittites. In the genealogical tables.
Heth is a son of Canaan.
Genesis 10:15 And Canaan begat Sidon his
firstborn, and Heth,
1 Chronicles 1:13 And Canaan begat
Zidon his firstborn, and Heth,
5 And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying unto him,
6 Hear us, my lord: thou art a mighty prince among us: in the choice of our
sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from thee his sepulchre, but
that thou mayest bury thy dead.
7 And Abraham stood up, and bowed himself to the people of the land, even to the
children of Heth.
8 And he communed with them, saying, If it be your mind that I should bury my
dead out of my sight; hear me, and intreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar,
9 That he may give me the cave of Machpelah, which he hath, which is in the end
of his field; for as much money as it is worth he shall give it me for a
possession of a burying place amongst you.
10 And Ephron dwelt among the children of Heth: and Ephron the Hittite answered
Abraham in the audience of the children of Heth, even of all that went in at the
gate of his city, saying,
11 Nay, my lord, hear me: the field give I thee, and the cave that is therein, I
give it thee; in the presence of the sons of my people give I it thee: bury thy
12 And Abraham bowed down himself before the people of the land.
13 And he spake unto Ephron in the audience of the people of the land, saying,
But if thou wilt give it, I pray thee, hear me: I will give thee money for the
field; take it of me, and I will bury my dead there.
14 And Ephron answered Abraham, saying unto him,
15 My lord, hearken unto me: the land is worth four hundred shekels of silver;
what is that betwixt me and thee? bury therefore thy dead.
16 And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver,
which he had named in the audience of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of
silver, current money with the merchant.
17 And the field of Ephron, which was in Machpelah, which was before Mamre, the
field, and the cave which was therein, and all the trees that were in the field,
that were in all the borders round about, were made sure
18 Unto Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of Heth, before
all that went in at the gate of his city.
19 And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of
Machpelah before Mamre: the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan.
20 And the field, and the cave that is therein, were made sure unto Abraham for
a possession of a buryingplace by the sons of Heth.
• Exactly 2520 years from the exile
of Benjamin, Iceland became an independent nation.
The first tribe to be
conquered by the Assyrians was Manasseh,
in 745 B.C. Exactly 2520 years later America became a nation on July 4, 1776.
(Leviticus. 26: 28-46) God warned Israel that if they persisted in continually
breaking His Laws, not only would curses come upon them.
He would punish them for seven times, (a time being 360 years, seven times would
be 2520 years) and would banish them from the land of Palestine and scatter them
among the heathens (like lost sheep)
