Deuteronomy 34

Verse 1

34:1 And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto the mountain of {a} Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that [is] over against Jericho. And the LORD shewed him all the land of Gilead, unto Dan,

(a) Which was a part of mount Abarim, Numbers 27:12.

Verse 2

34:2 And all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim, and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, unto the utmost {b} sea,

(b) Called Mediterranean.

Verse 6

34:6 And {c} he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto {d} this day.

(c) That is, the angel of the Lord, Judges 1:9.

(d) That the Jews might not have opportunity to commit idolatry by it.

Verse 9

34:9 And {e} 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.

(e) By this the favour of God is demonstrated, in that he does not leave his Church destitute of a governor.

Verse 10

34:10 And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew {f} face to face,

(f) To whom the Lord revealed himself so plainly as in Exodus 33:11.

Verse 12

34:12 And in all that mighty {g} hand, and in all the great terror which Moses shewed in the sight of all Israel.

(g) Meaning, the power of God working by Moses in the wilderness.
