What does Deuteronomy 32:49 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Deuteronomy 32:49

Get thee up into this mountain Abarim
Which was near in sight, and pointed at; it was a range of mountains, of which see ( Numbers 21:11 ) ( 27:12 ) ( 33:47 ) ;

[unto] Mount Nebo;
which was one of the mountains of Abarim, and had its name either from its height, or a city of this name, to which it was near, see ( Numbers 32:38 ) ; Jerom says F2, in his lays it was shown six miles from Heshbon to the east; it should be read, to the west:

which [is] in the land of Moab;
it formerly belonged to it, but was taken from he Moabites by Sihon, and now possessed by Israel:

that [is] over against Jericho;
which lay on the other side of Jordan, in the land of Canaan:

and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of
Israel for a possession;
which he might take a view of from the high mountain of Nebo, especially his sight being strengthened by the Lord, as no doubt it was; and this would give him a pleasure to behold, though he might not go into it, and confirm his faith that Israel would possess it, as well as be an emblem to him of the heavenly Canaan he was going to inherit.
