5 Mosebog 34

Moses dør i Moab

1Derefter steg Moses op fra Moabs sletter til Pisgatinden på Nebos bjerg over for Jeriko, hvorfra Herren viste ham landet: Gileads land helt op til Dan i nord; Naftalis land; Efraims og Manasses land; Judas land helt over til Middelhavet mod vest, Negev mod syd, og Jordandalen mellem palmebyen Jeriko og Zoar.

„Det er landet, som jeg lovede Abraham, Isak og Jakob at give deres efterkommere,” sagde Herren til Moses. „Nu har du set det med egne øjne, men du får ikke lov til at komme ind i det.”

Så døde Moses, Herrens tjener, i Moabs land, sådan som Herren havde bestemt det, og han blev begravet i Moab, i dalen over for byen Bet-Peor. Den dag i dag er der ingen, der kender det nøjagtige sted.

Moses var 120 år gammel, da han døde, men han havde bevaret sin livskraft og sit gode syn.

Der på Moabs sletter sørgede folket i 30 dage over hans død.

Josva, Nuns søn, var fyldt med visdoms ånd, for Moses havde lagt sine hænder på ham og velsignet ham, og israelitterne fulgte ham og adlød de befalinger, Herren havde givet Moses.

10 Aldrig før eller siden har der været en profet som Moses, med hvem Herren talte ansigt til ansigt. 11-12 Ingen mirakler kan sammenlignes med dem, han udførte for øjnene af Israel og egypterkongen og alle hans tjenere.

King James Version

Deuteronomy 34

1And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto the mountain of Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho. And the Lord shewed him all the land of Gilead, unto Dan,

And all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim, and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, unto the utmost sea,

And the south, and the plain of the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees, unto Zoar.

And the Lord said unto him, This is the land which I sware 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 thither.

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 a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day.

And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.

And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days: so the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended.

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 the Lord commanded Moses.

10 And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face,

11 In all the signs and the wonders, which the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land,

12 And in all that mighty hand, and in all the great terror which Moses shewed in the sight of all Israel.
