were: Of the two burying-places of the patriarchs, one was at Hebron, the cave and field which Abraham purchased of Ephron the Hittite (Genesis 23:16, etc.); the other in Sychem, which Jacob (not Abraham) bought of the sons of Emmor (Genesis 33:19). To remove this glaring discrepancy, Markland interprets נבסב [Strong's G3844], from, as it frequently signifies with a genitive, and renders, "And were carried over to Sychem; and afterwards from among the descendants of Emmor, the father, or son, of Sychem, they were laid in the sepulchre which Abraham bought for a sum of money." This agrees with the account which Josephus gives of the patriarchs; that they were carried out of Egypt, first to Sychem, and then to Hebron, where they were buried. Exodus 13:19, Joshua 24:32
