SEV Biblia, Chapter 27:12 Â¶ Y el SEÑOR dijo a Moisés: Sube a este monte Abarim, y verás la tierra que he dado a los hijos de Israel.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Numbers 27:12 Verse 12. Get thee up into this Mount Abarim] The mountain which Moses was commanded to ascend was certainly Mount Nebo, see Deut. xxxii. 49, &c., which was the same as Pisgah, see Deut. xxxiv. 1. The mountains of Abarim, according to Dr. Shaw, are a long ridge of frightful, rocky, precipitous hills, which are continued all along the eastern coast of the Dead Sea, as far as the eye can reach. As in Hebrew rb[ abar signifies to pass over, Abarim here probably signifies passages; and the ridge in this place had its name in all likelihood from the passage of the Israelites, as it was opposite to these that they passed the Jordan into the promised land.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 12. And the Lord said unto Moses , etc.] After the covenant made with Israel in the plains of Moab, and the song delivered to them, ( Deuteronomy 29:1 Deuteronomy 32:1-49) get thee up to this Mount Abarim ; which was a range of mountains, so called from the passages by them over Jordan into the land of Canaan; one part of which was Nebo, and the top of that Pisgah, from whence Moses had the view of the good land here directed to; (see Numbers 33:47, Deuteronomy 32:49 34:1). and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel ; for though he was now one hundred and twenty years old, his eyes were not dim, he could see at a great distance; and the height of this hill gave him an advantage of taking a prospect of the land, a great way into it; and very probably his sight might be greatly strengthened and increased at this time by the Lord, for the purpose; this may be an emblem of that sight by faith, which believers have at times of the heavenly Canaan, and sometimes are favoured with an enlarged one of it before their death.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 12-14 - Moses must die, but he shall have the satisfaction of seeing the lan of promise. This sight of Canaan signified his believing prospect of the better country, that is, the heavenly. Moses must die, but deat does not cut him off; it only brings him to rest with the holy patriarchs. It is but to die as they died, having lived as they lived and as their end was peace, why should we fear any evil in the passag of that dark valley? (Nu 27:15-23)
