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.

New International Version

Deuteronomy 34

The Death of Moses

1Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo from the plains of Moab to the top of Pisgah, across from Jericho. There the Lord showed him the whole land—from Gilead to Dan, all of Naphtali, the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea, the Negev and the whole region from the Valley of Jericho, the City of Palms, as far as Zoar. Then the Lord said to him, “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 let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it.”

And Moses the servant of the Lord died there in Moab, as the Lord had said. He buried him[a] in Moab, in the valley opposite Beth Peor, but to this day no one knows where his grave is. Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died, yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone. The Israelites grieved for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days, until the time of weeping and mourning was over.

Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit[b] of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. So the Israelites listened to him and did what the Lord had commanded Moses.

10 Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face, 11 who did all those signs and wonders the Lord sent him to do in Egypt—to Pharaoh and to all his officials and to his whole land. 12 For no one has ever shown the mighty power or performed the awesome deeds that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.
