Deuteronomy 34:1-12

34  And Moses went up from the Moab flats to Mount Nebo, the head of the Pisgah facing Jericho, and Jehovah showed him all the country, Gilead to Dan, 2  and all Naphtali and the Ephraimite and Manassite country and all the country of Judah to the western sea, 3  and the South, and the Pale, the river-plain of Jericho the City of Palms, down to Soghar. 4  And Jehovah said to him “This is the country of which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob ‘To your descendants I will give it’; I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not go over there.” 5  And Jehovah’s servant Moses died there in Moab by Jehovah’s decree, 6  and he buried him in the valley, in Moab, in front of Beth-Peghor; and no man knows his grave to this day. 7  And Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died; his eyes had not grown dim nor his freshness taken flight. 8  And the sons of Israel wept for Moses in the Moab flats thirty days. 9*  And the days of mourning for Moses came to an end. And Joshuaʽ the son of Nun was full of inspired wisdom, because Moses had laid his hands on him; and the sons of Israel listened to him and did as Jehovah had commanded Moses. 10  But there has not again stood up in Israel a prophet like Moses, whom Jehovah knew face to face, 11  for all the tokens and prodigies Jehovah sent him to do in Egypt to the Pharaoh and all his subjects and all his country, 12*  and for all the strong hand and all the great terror that Moses achieved before the eyes of all Israel.
