Yet thou shalt see the land before [thee]
Which Jarchi interprets, afar off; and so does Noldius F3; he saw it at a distance, as the Old Testament saints saw the things promised afar off, and were persuaded of them, though they did not enjoy them, ( Hebrews 11:13 ) :
but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give
the land of Canaan was a gift of God to Israel, into which they were not to be introduced by Moses, but by Joshua; signifying that eternal life, or the heavenly Canaan, is the gift of God through Christ, the antitype of Joshua, and not to obtained by the works of the law.
