Moses Dies on Mount Nebo
1Then Moses went up from the plains of Moab to #Num. 27:12; Deut. 32:49Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is across from Jericho. And the Lord showed him all the land of Gilead as far as Dan, 2all Naphtali and the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Western Sea, 3the South, and the plain of the Valley of Jericho, #2 Chr. 28:15the city of palm trees, as far as Zoar. 4Then the Lord said to him, #Gen. 12:7“This is the land of which I swore to give Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’ #Deut. 3:27I have caused you to see it with your eyes, but you shall not cross over there.”
5#Num. 20:12; Deut. 32:50; Josh. 1:1, 2So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord. 6And He buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth Peor; but #Jude 9no one knows his grave to this day. 7#Deut. 31:2Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died. #Gen. 27:1; 48:10His eyes were not dim nor his natural vigor diminished. 8And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab #Gen. 50:3, 10thirty days. So the days of weeping and mourning for Moses ended.
9Now Joshua the son of Nun was full of the #Is. 11:2spirit of wisdom, for #Num. 27:18, 23Moses had laid his hands on him; so the children of Israel heeded him, and did as the Lord had commanded Moses.
10But since then there #Deut. 18:15, 18has not arisen in Israel a prophet like Moses, #Ex. 33:11; Num. 12:8; Deut. 5:4whom the Lord knew face to face, 11in all #Deut. 7:19the signs and wonders which the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt, before Pharaoh, before all his servants, and in all his land, 12and by all that mighty power and all the great terror which Moses performed in the sight of all Israel.
