Friday, February 7th
After our last night at Mövenpick Hotel Amman, we drove to Mt. Nebo. Mt. Nebo is where Moses was promised a view of the Holy Land and on a clear day you are supposed to be able to see the Dead Sea and Jerusalem. But we were not there on a clear day.
The Death of Moses
34 Now Moses went up from the plains of Moab to Mount Nebo […]. And the Lord showed him all the land […] and all the land of Judah to the western sea (Mediterranean Sea), and the Negev (South country) and the plain in the Valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees, as far as Zoar. Then the Lord said to him, “This is the land which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’ I have let you see it with your eyes, but you shall not go over there.”
So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord. And He buried him in the valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth-peor; but no man knows where his burial place is to this day.
