    19  where Sarah is buried.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - A.M. 2144.  B.C. 1860.  Sarah.
      It is worthy of remark, that Sarah is the only woman whose
      age, death, and burial are distinctly noted in the Sacred
      writings.

      For the convenience of feeding his numerous flocks, Abraham
      had several places of temporary residence; and it is likely,
      that while he sojourned at Beer-sheba, as we find he did from
      ver. 19 of the preceding chapter, Sarah died at Hebron, which
      was 24 miles distant.

      Or, sitting (as the word frequently denotes) among the
      children of Heth, at the gate of the city, where all public
      business was transacted.  Ephron, though a chief man, might
      have been personally unknown to Abraham; but now he answers
      for himself, making a free tender of the field and cave to
      Abraham, in the presence of all the people, which amounted to
      a legal conveyance to the Patriarch.

    VERSE 15 
     - is worth.
      Though the words 'is worth' are not in the Text, yet they are
      clearly implied, to adapt the Hebrew to the English idiom.  A
      shekel, according to the general opinion, was equal in value
      to about 2s. 6d. of our money, but according to Dr. Prideaux,
      3s. English.  In those early times, money was given in weight;
      for it is said (ver. 16.) that 'Abraham weighed,' wayishkal,
      the silver; and hence, we find that it was a certain weight
      which afterwards passed as a current coin; for the word shekel
      is not only used to denote a piece of sliver, but also to
      weigh.
