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° ashekels° of silver°, what° is that between° me and you? So bury° your dead°.” 16 Abraham° listened° to Ephron°; and Abraham° aweighed° out for Ephron° the silver° which° he had named° in the Ihearing° of the sons° of Heth°, four° hundred° shekels° of silver°, IIcommercial° standard°.
