And Moses the servant of the Lord(E) died(F) there in Moab, as the Lord had said. He buried him[a] in Moab, in the valley opposite Beth Peor,(G) but to this day no one knows where his grave is.(H) Moses was a hundred and twenty years old(I) when he died, yet his eyes were not weak(J) nor his strength gone.(K) The Israelites grieved for Moses in the plains of Moab(L) thirty days,(M) until the time of weeping and mourning(N) was over.

Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit[b] of wisdom(O) because Moses had laid his hands on him.(P) So the Israelites listened to him and did what the Lord had commanded Moses.

10 Since then, no prophet(Q) has risen in Israel like Moses,(R) whom the Lord knew face to face,(S) 11 who did all those signs and wonders(T) the Lord sent him to do in Egypt—to Pharaoh and to all his officials(U) and to his whole land. 12 For no one has(V) ever shown the mighty power or performed the awesome deeds(W) that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.
