Bible Commentary for Deuteronomy 3:27

Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 3:27


3:25 Let me go over - For he supposed God's threatening might be conditional and reversible, as many others were. That goodly mountain - Which the Jews not improbably understood of that mountain on which the temple was to be built. This he seems to call that mountain, emphatically and eminently, that which was much in Moses's thoughts, though not in his eye.

3:28 He shall go over - It was not Moses, but Joshua or Jesus that was to give the people rest, #Heb 4:8|. 'Tis a comfort to those who love mankind, when they are dying and going off, to see God's work likely to be carried on by other hands, when they are silent in the dust.
