1 Ke kaloku ukudla ubomi kukaSara kwaba yiminyaka elikhulu elinamanci mabini aneminyaka esixhenxe; yiyo iminyaka yokudla ubomi kukaSara.

2 Wafa ke uSara eKiriyati ka-Arbha, eyiHebron, ezweni lakwaKanan. UAbraham waya kumbambazelela uSara nokumlilela.

3 Wesuka uAbraham ebusweni bomfikazi lowo,

4 wathetha koonyana bakaHeti, esithi, Ndingumphambukeli, ndilundwendwe kuni; ndinikeni ndibe nendawo yam yokungcwaba phakathi kwenu, ukuze ndimngcwabe umfikazi, angabikho phambi kwam.

5 Bamphendula uAbraham oonyana bakaHeti, bathi kuye, Sive, nkosi yam!

6 Usisikhulu sakwaThixo phakathi kwethu; kwelona linyulekayo kumangcwaba ethu, mngcwabe umfikazi lowo; akukho bani kuthi uya kwala nengcwaba lakhe, ukuba ungamngcwabi umfikazi lowo.

7 Wesuka uAbraham, waqubuda kubantu belizwe elo, koonyana bakaHeti abo.

8 Wathetha nabo esithi, Ukuba kusemphefumlweni wenu, ukuba ndimngcwabe umfikazi, angabikho phambi kwam, ndiveni, nindibongozele kuEfron, unyana kaTsohare,

9 ukuba andinike umqolomba waseMakapela, lowo anawo, osekupheleni kwentsimi yakhe, andinike wona ngemali ezalisekileyo; ube yindawo yam yokungcwaba phakathi kwenu.

10 UEfron wayehleli phakathi koonyana bakaHeti; uEfron umHeti wamphendula uAbraham ezindlebeni zoonyana bakaHeti, zabo bonke abangenayo ngesango lomzi wakhe, esithi, Hayi, nkosi yam, ndive!

11 Intsimi leyo ndiyakunika, nomqolomba okuyo ndiyakunika; emehlweni oonyana babantu bakowethu ndiyakunika; ngcwaba umfikizi loo.

12 Waqubuda uAbraham phambi kwabantu belizwe elo.

13 Wathetha kuEfron ezindlebeni zabantu belizwe elo, wathi, Wanga ungandiva; ndikunika imali ngentsimi; yithabathe kum, ndingcwabe umfikazi khona.

14 UEfron wamphendula uAbraham, wathi kuye,

15 Nkosi yam, ndive! Umhlaba ngoweeshekele zesilivere ezimakhulu mane. Yintoni na loo nto phakathi kwam nawe? Ngcwaba ke umfikazi lowo.

16 UAbraham wamphulaphula uEfron; uAbraham wamlinganisela uEfron isilivere leyo, abethethe ngayo ezindlebeni zoonyana bakaHeti, amakhulu omane eeshekele zesilivere evunywayo ngumrhwebi.

17 Yaqiniseka ke intsimi kaEfron eseMakapela ephambi kowakwaMamre, intsimi leyo nomqolomba okuyo, nemithi yonke esentsimini, ekuyo yonke imilimandlela ngeenxa zonke.

18 Yaba yinzuzo kuAbraham emehlweni oonyana bakaHeti, kubo bonke abangenayo ngesango lomzi wakhe.

19 Emveni koko uAbraham wamngcwaba uSara umkakhe emqolombeni wentsimi yaseMakapela phambi kowakwaMamre, kowaseHebron leyo, ezweni lakwaKanan.

20 Yaqiniseka ke intsimi leyo nomqolomba okuyo kuAbraham, ukuze abe nendawo yakhe yokungcwaba, ngoonyana bakaHeti.


Exploring the Meaning of IGenesis 23      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

Arcana Coelestia 2901. In the internal sense a New Spiritual Church is here treated of, that was raised up by the Lord after the former church had altogether expired; and also the reception of faith with those who were of the church. "Sarah" here, is the truth Divine which expired; "burial," is raising up again; "Ephron and the sons of Heth," are those with whom the good and truth of the church were received "Machpelah which is before Mamre," is regeneration; Hebron in the land of Canaan," is a new church.

Arcana Coelestia 2902. Truth Divine, that it expired, is treated of (verses 1-3); and that the Lord set up again a new church (verse 4); and was kindly received (verses 5, 6); from which there was joy (verses 7, 12); that their first state was obscure, and they believed the good of charity and the truth of faith to be from themselves (verses 8-11, 14, 15); but they were instructed that good and truth were not from themselves, but from the Lord (verse 13); and thus they were redeemed (verse 16); and regenerated (verses 17, 18); and thus there was a new church (verse 19); from the Gentiles (verse 20).
