Deuteronomy 34



1 And Moses went·​·up from the deserts of Moab to the mountain of Nebo, the head of Pisgah, that is against the faces of Jericho. And Jehovah showed him all the land, Gilead, even·​·to Dan,

2 and all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, even·​·to the sea behind,

3 and the south, and the plain of the vale of Jericho, the city of the palm·​·trees, even·​·to Zoar.

4 And Jehovah said to him, This is the land which I promised to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, I will give it to thy seed; I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not cross·​·over thither.

5 And Moses the servant of Jehovah died there in the land of Moab, by the mouth of Jehovah*.

6 And He buried him in a ravine in the land of Moab, next·​·to Beth-peor; but no man knows of his grave even·​·to this day.

7 And Moses was a son of a hundred and twenty years in his death; his eye was· not ·dim, and his freshness had not fled.

8 And the sons of Israel wept for Moses in the deserts of Moab thirty days; and the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were finished.

9 And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands on him; and the sons of Israel hearkened to him, and did as Jehovah commanded Moses.

10 And there has not, as·​·yet, arisen a prophet in Israel like Moses, whom Jehovah knew face to face,

11 in all the signs and the miracles, which Jehovah sent him to do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land,

12 and as·​·to all the firm hand, and as·​·to all the great fear, which Moses did before the eyes of all Israel.
