Deuteronomy 34


Deuteronomy 34 recounts the final chapter in the life of Moses, the great prophet and leader of Israel. This chapter is a poignant conclusion to the story of a man who led Israel out of Egypt and to the brink of the Promised Land. Key elements include:
Moses Views the Promised Land: Moses goes up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, across from Jericho. There, the LORD shows him the whole land—Gilead to Dan, all of Naphtali, the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea, the Negev, and the whole region from the Valley of Jericho, the City of Palms, as far as Zoar.
Moses' Death: The LORD tells Moses that this is the land He promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Moses dies there in Moab, as the LORD had said. He was 120 years old at his death, yet his eyes were not weak, nor his strength gone.
Mourning for Moses: The Israelites mourn for Moses in the plains of Moab for thirty days until the time of weeping and mourning is over.
Joshua Succeeds Moses: Joshua son of Nun is filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. The Israelites listen to him and do what the LORD had commanded Moses.
Moses' Legacy: The chapter concludes by stating that since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face. It reminisces about all the signs and wonders the LORD sent him to perform in Egypt against Pharaoh, all his officials, and his whole land, and all the mighty power and all the great terror Moses performed in the sight of all Israel.
Deuteronomy 34 serves as a powerful and emotional conclusion to the Torah. It highlights the end of an era with the death of Moses, a pivotal figure in Jewish history, and the transition of leadership to Joshua. This chapter reflects on the legacy of Moses, his unique relationship with God, and his unparalleled role in the story of the Israelites.

Deuteronomy 34

1  And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto the mountain of Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho. And the LORD shewed him all the land of Gilead, unto Dan,

2  And all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim, and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, unto the utmost sea,

3  And the south, and the plain of the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees, unto Zoar.

4  And the LORD said unto him, This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither.

5  So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD.

6  And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day.

7  And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.

8  And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days: so the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended.

9  And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the LORD commanded Moses.
