GOD'S WORD® Translation
1Then Moses went up on Mount Nebo from the plains of Moab. He went to the top of Pisgah, across from Jericho. The LORD showed him the whole land. He could see Gilead as far as Dan, 2all of Naphtali, the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the territory of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea, 3the Negev, and the Jordan Plain-the valley of Jericho (the City of Palms)-as far as Zoar. 4Then the LORD said to him, "This is the land I promised with an oath to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. I said I would give it to their descendants. I have let you see it with your own eyes, but you may not go there." 5As the LORD had predicted, the LORD's servant Moses died in Moab. 6He was buried in a valley in Moab, near Beth Peor. Even today no one knows where his grave is. 7Moses was 120 years old when he died. His eyesight never became poor, and he never lost his physical strength. 8The Israelites mourned for Moses in the plains of Moab for 30 days. Then the time of mourning for him was over.
9Joshua, son of Nun, was filled with the Spirit of wisdom, because Moses had laid his hands on him. The Israelites obeyed him and did what the LORD had commanded through Moses. 10There has never been another prophet in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD dealt with face to face. 11He was the one the LORD sent to do all the miraculous signs and amazing things in Egypt to Pharaoh, to all his officials, and to his whole country. 12Moses used his mighty hand to do all the spectacular and awe-inspiring deeds that were seen by all the Israelites.
