Deuteronomy 34:1-12 THE STORY of MOSES and the MOUNTAIN
Then Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah,
which is opposite Jericho, and God showed Moses the whole land:
Gilead as far as Dan, all Naphtali, the land of Ephraim and Manasseh,
all the land of Judah as far as the Western Sea, the Negeb,
and the Plain—that is, the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees—as far as Zoar.
God said to Moses, “This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying,
‘I will give it to your descendants’; I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not cross over there.”
Then Moses, servant of God, died there in the land of Moab, at God’s command.
He was buried in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth-peor, but no one knows his burial place to this day.
Moses was one hundred twenty years old when he died; his sight was unimpaired, and his vigor had not abated.
The people wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days; then the period of mourning for Moses was ended.
Joshua son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, because Moses had laid his hands on him;
and the people obeyed him, doing as God had commanded Moses.
Never since has there arisen a prophet like Moses, whom God knew face to face.
He was unequaled for all the signs and wonders that God sent him to perform in the land of Egypt,
against Pharaoh and all his servants and his entire land,
and for all the mighty deeds and all the terrifying displays of power
that Moses performed in the sight of all God’s people.
