He drives out the enemy before you;
he cries out, ‘Destroy them!’
So Israel will live in safety,
prosperous Jacob in security,
in a land of grain and new wine,
while the heavens drop down dew.
How blessed you are, O Israel!
Who else is like you, a people saved by the Lord?
He is your protecting shield
and your triumphant sword!
Your enemies will cringe before you,
and you will stomp on their backs!”
Then Moses went up to Mount Nebo from the plains of Moab and climbed
Pisgah Peak, which is across from Jericho. And the Lord showed him
the whole land, from Gilead as far as Dan; all the land of Naphtali; the
land of Ephraim and Manasseh; all the land of Judah, extending to the
Mediterranean Sea; the Negev; the Jordan Valley with Jericho—the city
of p alms—as far as Zoar. Then the Lord said to Moses, “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 now allowed you to see it with your own eyes,
but you will not enter the land.”
So Moses, the servant of the Lord, died there in the land of Moab, just
as the Lord had said. The Lord buried him in a valley near Beth-peor in
Moab, but to this day no one knows the exact place. Moses was 120 years
old when he died, yet his eyesight was clear, and he was as strong as ever.
The people of Israel mourned for Moses on the plains of Moab for thirty
days, until the customary period of mourning was over.
Now Joshua son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had
laid his hands on him. So the people of Israel obeyed him, doing just as the
Lord had commanded Moses.
There has never been another prophet in Israel like Moses, whom the
Lord knew face to face. The Lord sent him to perform all the miraculous
signs and wonders in the land of Egypt against Pharaoh, and all his servants, and his entire land. With mighty power, Moses performed terrifying
acts in the sight of all Israel.
