1Moses climbed Mount Nebo. He went up from the flatlands of Moab to the highest slopes of Pisgah. It's across from Jericho. At Pisgah the Lord showed him the whole land from Gilead all the way to Dan.2Moses saw the whole land of Naphtali. He saw the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh. The Lord showed him the whole land of Judah all the way to the Mediterranean Sea.3Moses saw the Negev Desert. He saw the whole area from the Valley of Jericho all the way to Zoar. Jericho was also known as The City of Palm Trees.4Then the Lord spoke to Moses. He said, “This is the land I promised with an oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I told them, ‘I will give this land to your children and their children.’ Moses, I have let you see it with your own eyes. But you will not go across the Jordan River to enter it.”5Moses, the servant of the Lord, died there in Moab, just as the Lord had said.6The Lord buried the body of Moses in Moab. His grave is in the valley across from Beth Peor. But to this day no one knows where it is.7Moses was 120 years old when he died. But his eyes were not weak. He was still very strong.8The people of Israel sobbed over Moses on the flatlands of Moab for 30 days. They did it until their time for sobbing and crying was over.9Joshua, the son of Nun, was filled with wisdom. That's because Moses had placed his hands on him. So the Israelites listened to Joshua. They did what the Lord had commanded Moses.10Since then, Israel has never had a prophet like Moses. The Lord knew him face to face.11Moses did many miraculous signs and wonders. The Lord had sent him to do them in Egypt. Moses did them against Pharaoh, against all of his officials and against his whole land.12No one has ever had the mighty power Moses had. No one has ever done the wonderful acts he did in the sight of all of the people of Israel.

The Death of Moses
1Then Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is opposite Jericho. And the Lord showed him all the land, Gilead as far as Dan, (Nu 27:12)2all Naphtali, the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the western sea, (De 11:24)3the Negeb, and the Plain, that is, the Valley of Jericho the city of palm trees, as far as Zoar. (Ge 13:12; Ge 14:2; Ge 19:17; Ge 19:22; Ge 19:25; Ge 19:28; De 1:7; Jud 1:16; Jud 3:13; 2Sa 18:23; 2Ch 28:15)4And the Lord said to him, “This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, ‘I will give it to your offspring.’ I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not go over there.” (Ge 12:7; Ge 50:24; De 1:37; De 3:27; De 32:52)5So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord,6and he buried him in the valley in the land of Moab opposite Beth-peor; but no one knows the place of his burial to this day. (Jud 1:9)7Moses was 120 years old when he died. His eye was undimmed, and his vigor unabated. (Ge 27:1; Ge 48:10; De 31:2; Jos 14:10; 1Sa 3:2; 1Sa 4:15)8And the people of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days. Then the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended. (Ge 50:3; Nu 20:29)9And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands on him. So the people of Israel obeyed him and did as the Lord had commanded Moses. (Ex 28:3; Nu 27:18; Nu 27:23; Jos 1:17; Isa 11:2)10And there has not arisen a prophet since in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face, (Ex 33:11; De 5:4; De 18:15; De 18:18)11none like him for all the signs and the wonders that the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh and to all his servants and to all his land, (De 4:34)12and for all the mighty power and all the great deeds of terror that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.
