The Death of Moses
34:1 Then Moses ascended from the deserts of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the summit of Pisgah, which is opposite Jericho.1 The Lord> showed him the whole land – Gilead to Dan,
34:2 and all of Naphtali, the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the distant2 sea,
34:3 the Negev, and the plain of the valley of Jericho, the city of the date palm trees, as far as Zoar.
34:4 Then the Lord> said to him, “This is the land I promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob when I said, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’3 I have let you see it,4 but you will not cross over there.”
34:5 So Moses, the servant of the Lord>, died there in the land of Moab as the Lord> had said.
34:6 He5 buried him in the land of Moab near Beth Peor, but no one knows his exact burial place to this very day.
34:7 Moses was 120 years old when he died, but his eye was not dull6 nor had his vitality7 departed.
34:8 The Israelites mourned for Moses in the deserts of Moab for thirty days; then the days of mourning for Moses ended.
The Epitaph of Moses
34:9 Now Joshua son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had placed his hands on him;8 and the Israelites listened to him and did just what the Lord> had commanded Moses.
34:10 No prophet ever again arose in Israel like Moses, who knew the Lord> face to face.9
34:11 He did10 all the signs and wonders the Lord> had sent him to do in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh, all his servants, and the whole land,
34:12 and he displayed great power11 and awesome might in view of all Israel.12
