Who tried to prevent Sarah from being buried?
וְאַחֲרֵי־כֵן֩ קָבַ֨ר אַבְרָהָ֜ם אֶת־שָׂרָ֣ה אִשְׁתּ֗וֹ אֶל־מְעָרַ֞ת שְׂדֵ֧ה הַמַּכְפֵּלָ֛ה עַל־פְּנֵ֥י מַמְרֵ֖א הִ֣וא חֶבְר֑וֹן בְּאֶ֖רֶץ כְּנָֽעַן׃
And then Avraham buried his wife Sarah in the cave of the field of Machpelah, facing Mamre—now Chevron—in the land of Canaan.
Adam and Chava tried to prevent Avraham from burying Sarah in the cave.
This was because they were embarrassed to be buried beside such a righteous person, due to their sin.
Avraham therefore prayed that God forgive them completely, which He did, and then they “caved” in.
