The Death of Moses

34 (A)Then Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is opposite Jericho. And Yahweh (B)showed him all the land, Gilead as far as Dan, and all Naphtali and the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah as far as the [a](C)western sea, and the [b]Negev and the plain in the valley of Jericho, (D)the city of palm trees, as far as Zoar. Then Yahweh said to him, “This is the land which (E)I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, ‘I will give it to your seed’; I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not go over there.” So Moses (F)the servant of Yahweh (G)died there in the land of Moab, according to the [c]command of Yahweh. And He buried him in the valley in the land of Moab, (H)opposite Beth-peor; but (I)no man knows his burial place to this day. Now Moses was (J)120 years old when he died; (K)his eye was not dim, nor his vigor abated. So the sons of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days. Then the days of weeping and mourning for Moses came to an end.

Now Joshua the son of Nun was (L)filled with the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands on him; and the sons of Israel listened to him and did as Yahweh had commanded Moses. 10 (M)And there has not yet arisen a prophet in Israel like Moses, whom (N)Yahweh knew face to face, 11 [d]in regard to all the signs and wonders which Yahweh sent him to do in the land of Egypt against Pharaoh, all his servants, and all his land, 12 and [e]in regard to all the mighty [f]power and [g]in regard to all the great terror which Moses did in the sight of all Israel.
