Moses Ascends Pisgah

1Moses ascended from the desert plain of Moab toward Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, across from Jericho. Therea the LORD showed him the entire land, from Gilgal as far as Dan, 2all of Naphtali, the territoriesb of Ephraim and Manasseh, and the entire territoryc of Judah all the way to out over the sea,d 3including the Negev,e the Arabah, the valley of Jericho, and the city of the palm trees as far as Zoar. 4Then the LORD told him: “This is the land that I promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob by an oath when I said, ‘I’ll give it to your descendants.’ I’ll let you see it with your eyes, but you won’t cross over there.”

Moses Dies

5So Moses, the servant of the LORD, died there in the land of Moab, just as the LORD had said.f 6He was buried in the valley opposite Beth Peor, in the land of Moab, but no one knows to this day where his burial place is. 7Moses was 120 years old when he died. His eyesight wasn’t impaired and he was still vigorous and strong. 8The Israelis mourned for Moses at the desert plain of Moab for 30 days, after which the period of mourning for Moses was completed.

The Epitaph for Moses

9Now Nun’s son Joshua was full of the spirit of wisdom, because Moses had placed his hands on him, so Israelis listened to him and did what the LORD had commanded Moses. 10No prophet ever rose again in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew with such great intimacy.g

11What signs and wonders the LORD sent him to do throughout the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh, and to all of his servants who lived in the whole land!

12What great powerh and great terror Moses displayed on behalf of all Israel!
