SynopsisIn the last passage, Moses recited the words of a song the LORD had given him. In this passage—which takes place on the same day—the LORD gives Moses some instructions for his death.
Moses is go to up to Mount Nebo, where he will be able to see the Promised Land. He won’t be allowed to enter it, but the LORD will allow him to see it. There Moses will be gathered to his people, just as Aaron did on Mount Hor, because they both “broke faith” (verse 51) with the LORD when they struck the rock in the Desert of Sin.
