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 ended.

And Joshua the 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 and did as the Lord had commanded Moses. 10 And there has not arisen a prophet since in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face, 11 none like him for all the signs and the wonders that 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 for all the mighty power and all the great deeds of terror that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.

  1. Moses Dies, Joshua Arises

    What an incredible journey through the first five books of the Bible this has been. Even though I have read these books before, nothing compares to reading them and reflecting on them and then sharing a comment on the website. 

    Today's reading marks the end of the greatest prophet known to Israel at that time (Deuteronomy 34:10), who knew God "face to face" and did many "signs and wonders", in "mighty power" and did "great deeds of terror . . .  in the sight of all Israel" (Deuteronomy 34:12). 

    Tomorrow we start the Book of Joshua who was appointed by Moses (at the Lord's command) to lead the people of Israel to the Promised Land

    In the introductory comments on Joshua 1, the ESV says, "The five books of Moses anticipated the fulfillment of God's promise to Abraham regarding the Promised Land. Now (about 1400 B.C.), through a string of military victories under Joshua's command, Israel conquered the land and apportioned it according to their twelve tribes. 

    "In these battles, it became evident that God fights for His people when they are 'strong and courageous' (Joshua 1:6, 7, 9, 18; 10:25) and put their full trust in Him. 

    "At the close of the book, Joshua charges the people to remain faithful to God and to obey His command, and the people agreed to do so. "as for me and my house,' said Joshua, 'we will serve the Lord' (Joshua 24:15). Although anonymous, the book appears to contain eyewitness testimony, some of which may have been written by Joshua himself."

    I encourage you to read along each day and reflect on what lessons God may have for you. If you can, please share a comment (or question).

    May God's Word reign in our hearts and lives as we nourish our souls in the great bounty of the Bible.
