Moses Blesses the Tribes

“Moses’ last recorded words are optimistic blessings for each of the tribes of Israel as they prepare to take over the land which was promised to their forefathers.  Although the exact interpretation of each blessing is sometimes obscure, it is clear that Moses is caught up in the excitement of pending conquests and uses the occasion for giving encouragement and hope.

Prior to giving these blessings, Moses is told that he is to go up on a mountain to view the land of Canaan and then die soon thereafter.”

Read Numbers 27:12-14/Deuteronomy 32:48-52 and Deuteronomy 33

Moses’ Death and Burial

“Moses prepares to ascend Mount Nebo for a long-awaited view of the promised land.  It must be with mixed emotions that he climbs that last step and looks down over ‘the land flowing with milk and honey.’  The long journey has been worth it, and the God who has promised it all is indeed faithful.  While Moses has every confidence that God can deliver the land, he knows that territorial conquest is nothing compared to the struggle which the Israelites will face in trying to maintain their covenant relationship with God.”

Read Deuteronomy 34

“So ends the life of the greatest man of God since Abraham.  As Abraham had taught a family about faith, Moses had taught a nation about law and in centuries to come, One greater than them both will teach the whole world about love and grace.”

Transfer of Leadership to Joshua

‘Now it is time for Moses to step down and turn the leadership over to Joshua, his successor.  There is little fanfare, for Moses has not been a typical ruler.  He has not been dependent upon political power or process.  He has been merely a servant of the nation’s true ruler, God himself — and so shall Joshua be.”

Read: Deuteronomy 31:1-8, 14, 15, 23

Song of Unfaithfulness

“Anticipating the fact that the Israelites will soon breach their vows of commitment to him, God asks Moses to teach the Israelites a song about unfaithfulness in which God’s own faithfulness stands in sharp contrast.  It is a call to law-keeping — yet a promise of divine grace where human efforts fail.

Moses had personally written the account which is now known as the book of Deuteronomy.  Yet at this point, before assembling the congregation to teach them God’s song, there is an indication that Moses gives over his book to the Levites so that it may be kept with the ark.”
