Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 23:11-15

_ _ Ephron answered, Nay, my lord, etc. — Here is a great show of generosity, but it was only a show; for while Abraham wanted only the cave, he joins “the field and the cave”; and though he offered them both as free gifts, he, of course, expected some costly presents in return, without which, he would not have been satisfied. The patriarch, knowing this, wished to make a purchase and asked the terms.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 23:3-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 23:11

The field give I thee — Abraham thought he must be intreated to sell it, but upon the first mention, without intreaty, he freely gives it.
