1Then Moses climbed up Mount Nebo. He went from the plains of Moab to the top of Mount Pisgah. It is across from Jericho. From there the Lord showed him all the land. He could see from Gilead to Dan. 2He could see all of Naphtali and the lands of Ephraim and Manasseh. He could see all the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea. 3He could see the southern desert and the whole Valley of Jericho up to Zoar. Jericho is called the city of palm trees. 4Then the Lord said to Moses, “This is the land I promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I said to them, ‘I will give this land to your descendants.’ I have let you look at it, Moses. But you will not cross over there.”
5Then Moses, the servant of the Lord, died there in Moab. It was as the Lord had said. 6The Lord buried Moses in Moab in the valley opposite Beth Peor. But even today no one knows where his grave is. 7Moses was 120 years old when he died. His eyes were not weak. And he was still strong. 8The Israelites cried for Moses for 30 days. They stayed in the plains of Moab until the time of sadness was over.
9Joshua son of Nun was then filled with wisdom. Moses had put his hands on Joshua. So the Israelites listened to Joshua. And they did what the Lord had commanded Moses.
10There has never been another prophet like Moses. The Lord knew Moses face to face. 11The Lord sent Moses to do signs and miracles in Egypt. He did them to the king, to all his officers and to the whole land of Egypt. 12Moses had great power. He did wonderful things for all the Israelites to see.
