1 And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto mount Nebo,
to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho. And HaShem showed him all
the land, even Gilead as far as Dan;
2 and all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, and
all the land of Judah as far as the hinder sea;
3 and the South, and the Plain, even the valley of Jericho
the city of palm-trees, as far as Zoar.
4 And HaShem said unto him: 'This is the land which I swore
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
5 So Moses the servant of HaShem died there in the land of
Moab, according to the word of HaShem.
6 And he was buried in the valley in the land of Moab over
against Beth-peor; and no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day.
7 And Moses was a 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 in the 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 HaShem commanded Moses.
10 And there hath not arisen a prophet since in Israel like
unto Moses, whom HaShem knew face to face;
11 in all the signs and the wonders, which HaShem sent him to
do in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his
12 and in all the mighty hand, and in all the great terror,
which Moses wrought in the sight of all Israel.
