EPHRON (1)

e'-fron ('ephron, "fawnlike"): The Hittite of whom Abraham bought the field and cave of Machpelah (Gen 23:8 ff; 25:9; 49:30). The transaction was conducted in true oriental fashion, with excessive courtesy; but the large sum of 400 shekels' weight of silver was in the end required (compare 33:19; 1 Ki 16:24).
See also MONEY; MONEY, CURRENT.
