Reading along with us in Deuteronomy? Here’s today’s reading:

Deuteronomy 34 (ESV)

Then Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, which is opposite Jericho. And the Lord showed him all the land, Gilead as far as Dan, all Naphtali, the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the western sea, the Negeb, and the Plain, that is, the Valley of Jericho the city of palm trees, as far as Zoar. And the Lord said to him, “This is the land of which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, ‘I will give it to your offspring.’ I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not go over there.”So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord, and he buried him in the valley in the land of Moab opposite Beth-peor; but no one knows the place of his burial to this day. Moses was 120 years old when he died. His eye was undimmed, and his vigor unabated.And the people of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days. Then the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were endedContinue Reading

  1. It’s sad to see how Moses’ story ended. He was so close to the promised land. But it amazes me how Joshua still stood up in leadership, even after such a tough act to follow. He was filled with wisdom and took on his role head on. I’m facing quite a few leadership roles of my own right now, so I’m praying I can be just like Joshua and Moses through them.

  2. Undimmed eyes and vigor at 120! 10And there has not arisen a prophet since in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face, 11none like him for all the signs and the wonders that the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt

  3. You really can’t say too much about Moses. No one has had the relationship with God that he did. No one has seen the power of God move so mightily through him. No one has seen Him face to face and lived. And, btw Jesus doesn’t count because He is God.

    And he died because it was his time. He couldn’t go into the promised land here on earth so God brought him to the promised land in paradise. It is a bit of a mystery that God buried him but no one could find the grave. You wonder if the people would have made his body/bones an idol? But you also wonder if He “buried” him in God’s way and he was translated to paradise which then allowed Moses to join Elijah at the transfiguration of Jesus. All speculation though….
