The Death of Moses
1Then Moses went up from the plains of Moab #See Num. 27:12to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is opposite Jericho. And the Lord showed him all the land, Gilead as far as Dan, 2all Naphtali, the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah #See ch. 11:24as far as the western sea, 3#ch. 1:7 the Negeb, and #Gen. 13:12; 19:17, 25, 28, 29; 2 Sam. 18:23 the Plain, that is, the Valley of Jericho #Judg. 1:16; 3:13; 2 Chr. 28:15 the city of palm trees, as far as #Gen. 14:2; 19:22Zoar. 4And the Lord said to him, #See Gen. 12:7; 50:24 “This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, ‘I will give it to your offspring.’ #ch. 3:27; 32:52 I have let you see it with your eyes, but #See ch. 1:37you shall not go over there.” 5So 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 the valley in the land of Moab opposite Beth-peor; but #[Jude 9]no one knows the place of his burial to this day. 7#ch. 31:2 Moses was 120 years old when he died. #[Gen. 27:1; 48:10; Josh. 14:10, 11; 1 Sam. 3:2; 4:15]His eye was undimmed, and his vigor unabated. 8And the people of Israel #Num. 20:29; [Gen. 50:3]wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days. Then the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended.
9And Joshua the son of Nun was full of #Ex. 28:3; Isa. 11:2 the spirit of wisdom, for #Num. 27:18, 23 Moses had laid his hands on him. So #Josh. 1:17the people of Israel obeyed him and did as the Lord had commanded Moses. 10And there has not #[ch. 18:15, 18] arisen a prophet since in Israel like Moses, #ch. 5:4; See Ex. 33:11whom the Lord knew face to face, 11none like him for all #See ch. 4:34the signs and the wonders that the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh and to all his servants and to all his land, 12and for all the mighty power and all the great deeds of terror that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.
