Deuteronomy 34:10-11 Meaning and Commentary

INTRODUCTION TO DEUTERONOMY 34

This chapter informs us of Moses going up to the top of Pisgah, where he was shown the whole land of Canaan, De 34:1-4; of his death, burial, and age, De 34:5-7; of Israel's mourning for him, and the time of it, De 34:8; of his successor Joshua, De 34:9; and of the character of Moses, to whom no prophet was to be compared, De 34:10-12.

Deuteronomy 34:10-11 In-Context

8 The Israelites grieved for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days, until the time of weeping and mourning was over.
9 Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. So the Israelites listened to him and did what the LORD had commanded Moses.
10 Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face,
11 who did all those signs and wonders the LORD sent him to do in Egypt—to Pharaoh and to all his officials and to his whole land.
12 For no one has ever shown the mighty power or performed the awesome deeds that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.
