Moses' Death Foretold

48 That very day the Lord spoke to Moses, 49 “Go up (A)this mountain of the Abarim, Mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab, opposite Jericho, and view the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the people of Israel for a possession. 50 And die on the mountain which you go up, and be gathered to your people, as (B)Aaron your brother died in Mount Hor and was gathered to his people, 51 (C)because you broke faith with me in the midst of the people of Israel at the waters of Meribah-kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin, and because you did not treat me as holy in the midst of the people of Israel. 52 For (D)you shall see the land before you, but you shall not go there, into the land that I am giving to the people of Israel.”

11 And Moses lifted up his hand and struck the rock with his staff twice, (A)and water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their livestock. 12 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Because (B)you did not believe in me, (C)to uphold me as holy in the eyes of the people of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land that I have given them.” 13 (D)These are the waters of Meribah,[a] where the people of Israel quarreled with the Lord, and through them he showed himself holy.
