Deuteronomy 34:1–12

The Death of Moses and the Commissioning of Joshua

34 Then Moses went up from the desert plateaua of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is oppositeb Jericho, and Yahweh showed him all of the land, Gilead all the way up to Dan, and all of Naphtali and the land of Ephraim and Manasseh and all of the land of Judah, up to the western sea,c and the Negev and the plain of the valley of Jericho, the city of palms, on up to Zoar. And Yahweh said to him, “This is the land that I swore to Abraham to Isaac and to Jacob, saying,d ‘To your offspring I will give it.’ I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not cross into it.”e Then Moses, the servant of Yahweh, died there in the land of Moab according to the command of Yahweh.f And heg buried him in the valley in the land of Moab opposite Beth Peor. But until this day no one knows his burial site. Now Moses was a hundred and twenty years oldh when he died;i his sight was not impaired and his vigor had not abated.j And the Israelitesk wept concerning Moses thirty days; finally the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were completed.

Nowl Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom because Moses had placed his hands on him, and the Israelitesm listened to him, and they did as Yahweh had commanded Moses. 10 And not againn has a prophet arisen in Israel like Moses, whom Yahweh knewo face to face, 11 as far as all the signs and the wonders Yahweh sent him to do in the land of Egypt, againstp Pharaoh and all of his servants and againstq all of his land, 12 and as far as all of the mighty deedsr and as far as the great awesome wonderss Moses did before the eyes of all Israel.
