---Dr. Doukhan [a Christian French Jew] outlined the role of Sarah in the Bible very well.

---Only a few lines are preserved like the fact of her old age; her laughter; the purchase of her burial place; Abraham's next wife; Rebekkah's birth

---Phonologically, Heth is related to a nation of HIttites [Hit-]. That means, they are not residents of Canaan but squatters or migrants from somewhere else.

---If God is planning to give their properties to Abraham then it is becasue they are just usus fructus of the land, not in "Hittite land".

---Hittites were a culture, language, religion, nation but we do not have tablets from them this early in 2146ff.

---Isaac would take Rebekkah at the age of 40 (Gen 25:20) in 2091 BC.

---The Second Great Famine after the Flood is going to be 2040-2031 BC.

---Isaac would be asked to go to Egypt and dwell there.

---The Promise will be reiterated with Isaac then.
