Deuteronomy 34:1–12

The Death of Moses

34 Then Moses climbed Mount Nebob from the plains of Moab to the top of Pisgah,c across from Jericho.d There the Lord showede him the whole land—from Gilead to Dan,f all of Naphtali, the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea,g the Negevh and the whole region from the Valley of Jericho, the City of Palms,i as far as Zoar.j Then the Lord said to him, “This is the land I promised on oathk to Abraham, Isaac and Jacobl when I said, ‘I will give itm to your descendants.’ I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not crossn over into it.”

And Moses the servant of the Lordo diedp there in Moab, as the Lord had said. He buried hima in Moab, in the valley opposite Beth Peor,q but to this day no one knows where his grave is.r Moses was a hundred and twenty years olds when he died, yet his eyes were not weakt nor his strength gone.u The Israelites grieved for Moses in the plains of Moabv thirty days,w until the time of weeping and mourningx was over.

Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spiritb of wisdomy because Moses had laid his hands on him.z So the Israelites listened to him and did what the Lord had commanded Moses.

10 Since then, no propheta has risen in Israel like Moses,b whom the Lord knew face to face,c 11 who did all those signs and wondersd the Lord sent him to do in Egypt—to Pharaoh and to all his officialse and to his whole land. 12 For no one hasf ever shown the mighty power or performed the awesome deedsg that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.
