קֶבֶר Strong’s #6913 qever

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.

Genesis 23:4

The grave was commonly a cave owned by the family where its members were laid after death (see Genesis 49:30,31). This is often referred to in the Bible such as in the following verse: And David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David (1 Kings 2:10). The verb form qavar (Strongs #6912) means “to bury,” which is also found in the verse above.
