13 After you have seen it, you too will be gathered to your people, as your brother Aaron was,
13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered.
13 When you have seen it, you also shall be gathered to your people, as your brother Aaron was,
13 When you've had a good look you'll be joined to your ancestors in the grave - yes, you also along with Aaron your brother.
13 And when you have seen it, you also shall be gathered to your people, as Aaron your brother was gathered.
13 After you have seen it, you will die like your brother, Aaron,
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Numbers 27:13
Commentary on Numbers 27:12-14
(Read Numbers 27:12-14)
Moses must die, but he shall have the satisfaction of seeing the land of promise. This sight of Canaan signified his believing prospect of the better country, that is, the heavenly. Moses must die, but death 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 passage of that dark valley?
