"Moses and the Promised Land" 80x60 1999

The Death of Moses
Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo
from the plains ofMoab to the top of
Pisgah, across from Jericho. There the
LORD showed him the whole land—from
Gilead to Dan, all of Naphtali, the territory
of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of
Judah as far as the western sea, the
Negev and the whole region from the Val-
ley of Jericho, the City of Palms, as far as
Zoar. Then the LORD said to him, "This is
the land I promised on oath to Abraham,
Isaac and Jacob when I said, 'I will give it
to your descendants.' I have let you see it
with your eyes, but you will not cross over
into it."

And Moses the servant of the LORD died
there in Moab, as the LORD had said. He
buried himc in Moab, in the valley opposite
Beth Peor, but to this day no one knows
where his grave is. Moses was a hundred
and twenty years old when he died, yet his
eyes were not weak nor his strength gone.
The Israelites grieved for Moses in the
plains of Moab thirty days, until the time of
weeping and mourning was over.
Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with
the spirit of wisdom because Moses had
laid his hands on him. So the Israelites
listened to him and did what the LORD had
commanded Moses.
Since then, no prophet has risen in Is-
rael like Moses, whom the LORD knew face
to face, who did all those miraculous signs
and wonders the LORD sent him to do in
Egypt—to Pharaoh and to all his officials
and to his whole land. For no one has ever
shown the mighty power or performed the
awesome deeds that Moses did in the sight
of all Israel.
