Easton's Bible Dictionary


princess, the wife and at the same time the half-sister of Abraham (Gen 11:29; 20:12). This name was given to her at the time that it was announced to Abraham that she should be the mother of the promised child. Her story is from her marriage identified with that of the patriarch till the time of her death. Her death, at the age of one hundred and twenty-seven years (the only instance in Scripture where the age of a woman is recorded), was the occasion of Abraham's purchasing the cave of Machpelah as a family burying-place.

In the allegory of Gal 4:22-31 she is the type of the "Jerusalem which is above." She is also mentioned as Sara in Hbr 11:11 among the Old Testament worthies, who "all died in faith." (See ABRAHAM.)

lady; princess; princess of the multitude

Smith's Bible Dictionary



(1.) The wife and half‐sister (Genesis 20:12) of Abraham, and mother of Isaac. Her name is first introduced in Genesis 11:29 as Sarai. The change of her name from Sarai, my princess (i.e. Abraham's) to Sarah, princess (for all the race) was made at the same time that Abram's name was changed to Abraham,-on the establishment of the covenant of circumcision between him and God. Sarah's history is of course that of Abraham. SEE [ABRAHAM or ABRAM]. She died at Hebron at the age of 127 years, 28 years before her husband and was buried by him in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre. (B.C. 1860) She is referred to in the New Testament as a type of conjugal obedience in 1 Peter 3:6 and as one of the types of faith in Hebrews 11:11.

(2.) Sarah, the daughter of Asher (Numbers 26:46).
