Deuteronomy 34

1 It is most likely that Moses spent his last moments on earth on the mountain alone with God. Thus, this narrative would have been revealed to the scribe who wrote the end of Deuteronomy.

God showed Moses all the land: north, south, east, and west. God may have used a vision or supernaturally aided Moses' vision, since the Mediterranean Sea, for instance, is not presently visible from that mountain.

Pisgah may be the name of a ridge on Mount Nebo. God had earlier promised that Moses could see the Promised Land from there, though he would not be allowed to enter it (Deu 3:23-27).

4 Moses saw the good land that God provided for the Israelites. However, Moses disqualified himself to complete Israel's journey because of his indiscretion during the last year of his leadership (Num 20:1-13). However, Moses could take much comfort in knowing that he would remain with God for eternity, which is a much better inheritance.
5 God's love for Moses was great. There is no better way to die than under the watchful and caring eye of God. At the end of his life he was known as "the servant of the Lord." No matter what our achievements or mistakes, we should hope to have the same epitaph.
6 God buried Moses -- something He did not do for any other person as far as we know. God was Moses' best friend, and it was appropriate that God be there at his death to bury him.

Although God revealed many things to this scribe about Moses' last moments, God did not tell him where Moses' body was buried. God knows human weaknesses. Moses' ministry was very important to the Israelites, and they would not have another leader as important as Moses until Jesus came. If people knew where Moses was buried, they would most likely build a shrine there. Pilgrimages to Moses' grave would probably have become an important, yet worthless, addition to their religion. Even without such a place, Moses became idolized by some in such a way that he and the Law God gave him became more important than their relationship with God (John 5:45-47, 9:28-29).

7 Moses was old, but he did not die of old age. He died at the command of God.
8 It was appropriate for Israel to mourn, but it was also appropriate that their mourning should end. God had commanded them to invade the Promised Land, so they could not tarry long on the east side of the Jordan River. Thirty days was the customary time to mourn for the loss of a great leader (Gen 49:33-50:3, Num 20:29).
9 Joshua's wisdom stemmed from his complete trust in God, even when the circumstances made faith difficult. Joshua also learned wisdom from Moses. The laying on of hands was the official transfer of leadership authority. The people recognized that Joshua's authority came both from God and Moses, and they did well to obey Joshua.
10 Moses' friendship with God was the hallmark of his life. There would be other prophets that would see visions and hear God's voice, but none, it seems, would know God as Moses did (Elijah would be the most likely exception). Jesus would be the next prophet "like Moses" who knew God intimately. Of course, since Jesus is a member of the Godhead, He knows God firsthand, and in His natural, spiritual state.
11 The evidence of Moses' relationship with God was the great miracles that God performed through him. Jesus would later have similar evidences of His relationship with God. Moses saved Israel from slavery in Egypt. Jesus would save the world from slavery to sin.
