Deuteronomy 34:1-12


  • Jehovah shows Moses the land (1-4)

  • Death of Moses (5-12)

34  Then Moses went up from the desert plains of Mo′ab to Mount Ne′bo,+ to the top of Pis′gah,+ which faces Jer′i·cho.+ And Jehovah showed him all the land, from Gil′e·ad to Dan,+ 2  and all Naph′ta·li and the land of E′phra·im and Ma·nas′seh, and all the land of Judah as far as the western sea,*+ 3  and the Neg′eb+ and the District,+ the valley plain of Jer′i·cho, the city of the palm trees, as far as Zo′ar.+ 4  Jehovah then said to him: “This is the land about which I have sworn to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, ‘To your offspring* I will give it.’+ I have let you see it with your own eyes, but you will not cross over there.”+ 5  After that Moses the servant of Jehovah died there in the land of Mo′ab just as Jehovah had said.+ 6  He buried him in the valley in the land of Mo′ab, opposite Beth-pe′or, and nobody knows where his grave is down to this day.+ 7  Moses was 120 years old at his death.+ His eyes had not grown dim, and his strength had not departed. 8  The people of Israel wept for Moses on the desert plains of Mo′ab for 30 days.+ Then the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were completed. 9  Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hand on him;+ and the Israelites began to listen to him, and they did just as Jehovah had commanded Moses.+ 10  But there has never again arisen a prophet in Israel like Moses,+ whom Jehovah knew face-to-face.+ 11  He performed all the signs and the miracles that Jehovah had sent him to do in the land of Egypt to Phar′aoh and all his servants and all his land,+ 12  along with the mighty hand and the awesome power that Moses displayed before the eyes of all Israel.+
