1 And Moses goeth up from the plains of Moab unto mount Nebo, the top of Pisgah, which is on the front of Jericho, and Jehovah sheweth him all the land—Gilead unto Dan, 2and all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim, and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah unto the further sea, 3and the south, and the circuit of the valley of Jericho, the city of palms, unto Zoar. 4And Jehovah saith unto him, ‘This is the land which I have sworn to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, To thy seed I give it; I have caused thee to see with thine eyes, and thither thou dost not pass over.’
5 And Moses, servant of the Lord, dieth there, in the land of Moab, according to the command of Jehovah; 6and He burieth him in a valley in the land of Moab, over-against Beth-Peor, and no man hath known his burying place unto this day. 7And Moses is a son of a hundred and twenty years when he dieth; his eye hath not become dim, nor hath his moisture fled. 8And the sons of Israel bewail Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days; and the days of weeping and mourning for Moses are completed.
9 And Joshua son of Nun is full of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands upon him, and the sons of Israel hearken unto him, and do as Jehovah commanded Moses. 10And there hath not arisen a prophet any more in Israel like Moses, whom Jehovah hath known face unto face, 11in reference to all the signs and the wonders which Jehovah sent him to do in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land, 12and in reference to all the strong hand, and to all the great fear which Moses did before the eyes of all Israel.
