Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 34:8


34:8 Thirty day's - Which was the usual time of mourning for persons of high place and eminency. 'Tis a debt owing to the surviving honour of deceased worthies, to follow them with our tears, as those who loved and valued them, are sensible of the loss, and humbled for the sins which have provoked God to deprive us of them.

    Meria:Moses died and is buried in a Valley in Moab. Deuteronomy 34:5-6. He died a young age 120. V:7
  • Méria Johnfroe
    One Error, you are not looking as to INDEPT studying of the Original Hebrew Scriptures, does not speak of Moses as dying and being Buried!! We, know this from the day Yeshua was praying in the "Garden of Gethsemane!" Which two men came to bring the Transfiguration undo Yeshua so He'd be Brought back to totally Spiritual Figured so as to bare the agony which was to come! Sort of re strengthening
  • Damion
    Moses did not write Deuteronomy 34:5 is a past tense scripture and moses could not write the rest of it after that verse if he's dead.
  • Abuyanga Emma
    DUE,is one of those amazing books of the Bible because of the author Moses.V5 and V6,Moses writes about his death and burriel before he had died and what happened to his successor Joshua amazing.
  • Donnette
    Moses character was so amazing, he obeyed God words to the very end, I pray that as we study and read God's work that we may submit his words in our daily lives.
  • Annette Iverson
    Deuteronomy teaches us how to be blessed or cursed, how to have life or death, how to live according to the commandments, statues, and ordiances, of the Lord and live blessed all the days of our lives, we should be able to walk according to what God command us to avoid having to learn the same lessons the children of Israel had to learn, so we can avoid tempting God and being disobedience to God's will for our lives.
