Deut 34: 6
"And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab
[illegible] against Beth-peor; but no man knoweth of his [?sepluchre?] unto
this day" Your attention is invited especially to the first clause
of the verse "[u]He buried him[/u]" bearing in mind that "He" refers
to God and "him" to Moses [u]God buried Moses[/u]
What a strange funeral! What a wonderful burial! If
there were any attendants then they [?men?], not [u]men[/u] but ministering
angels, and whatever burial service then may have been [illegible] performed
as we are here told by God himself. With our infinite father's love
and in arms of everlasting strength, he [?took?] his aged faithful
servant and laid him, like a tired child, to rest [u]and the
End was peace[/u]. We are reminded of that beautiful sentence
with which [?Bickersteth?] commences his "Yesterday to day + forever"
"The last day of my Earthly pilgrimage was closing and the End
has peace"". So it was with Moses. The varied experiences of his
long life were finished, his Earthly pilgrimage has was Ended [u]and
the end was peace[/u]. And it was written of him, what has
never been [?written?] of any other one of all those [--myriads--] uncounted
myriads who in the world's long history have lived and died. it
was written
[u]God buried him[/u]?
[u]Why did God bury Moses[/u]?
We ought not to pry too curiously into matters which God has not seen
fit to reveal but I think we [u?stay?] without presumption suggest that in burying
Moses God [u]intended[/u] to and [u]did[/u] manifest his special love for him, such is the
Savior love to the beloved disciple John. The tender burial of the dead is a token of
[?Esteem?] and love that is usually preserved for nearest kindred and dearest friends. So
in the present case, Gods burial of Moses was only a continuation of the love that [?he?]
had [illegible] him during life. He saved him from death when an infant watched
over him as he grew up, gave him special opportunities of preparation for the
[illegible] terms of intimacy with him than with any other of even his chosen people
He talked, as the Scriptures express it, face to face with him as a man talketh with him
friend and then continually for forty years. It is represented as a wonderful thing
that the children of Israel were [u]once[/u] permitted to hear God's voice from the [illegible]
[illegible] of Sinai (Deut 9: 32 & 33) "For ask now of the days that are past, which
now before thee, since the day that God created man upon the Earth, and [?ask?]
from the one side of heaven unto the other whether there hath been any such
thing as [?this?] great [illegible] ism or hath been heard like it? Did ever people hear
the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as [illegible] hast heard and [?live?]?
And yet these people worshipped [u]afar off[/u]. They were not permitted to touch the
mount or even come near it, for it has ordained that "Moses [u]alone[/u] shall
come near the Lord." He alone could [illegible] the mount, could come into
the very secret place of thunder, into the very presence of the Almighty-- God
And so it was to the End of his life. "And then arose not a prophet since
in Israel [?like?] unto Moses whom the Lord knew face to face (Deut 34:10). When
[?sought?] a close intimacy existed during life, it is no great [?reorder?[ that when Moses
died "[u]God buried him[/u]."
There may also have been a special reason why God
wished [--illegible--] at this time to give a new token of his loved to his aged [illegible]
[?age?] he climbed that lofty peak of Moat's mountain to me the land of Canaan + die.
I have no doubt that his soul was at [u]peace[/u], for he had learned too well the lesson
of resignation to God's will to let his heart chafe itself by fighting against that will
Thoughts of coming rest, and heavenly glory were no doubt pleasant to him, but I
have thought that some sadness must have mingled with his joy. It was as
[Note: fold in the page, rendering most of the line illegible]
[illegible] that he was [illegible] out from [?leading?] the children
of Israel into the Land of Canaan. Until [?those?] years Earlier he had fully expected to
[illegible] their waywardness, his affection for his people was like that
of a father for his children. Those whom he [illegible] [?led?], had in fact grown up, [?under?]
his eye, for all who left the land of Egypt as grown [illegible] men and women had
died in the [?wilderness?]. He was [illegible] capable of being their leader still
for though he was one hundred and twenty years of age, "his age was not
yet him nor his natural force abated." It must have seemed to him
that [illegible] be [illegible] appropriate [illegible] he should be with those whom he
[?has?] led through all the perils of the wilderness, when they took possession
of the promised land and assist them in their settlement then. And to [?them?]
[illegible] most inopportune time for their good leader to
is taken from them [illegible] they most needed his help to capture those walled
cities of Canaan and encounter those giant sons of Anak. That Moses [?keenly?]
felt this disappointment appears from his own [illegible] recorded in the third chapter
of Deuteronomy (see Deut 3: 23-27) "And I [?besought?] the Lord at that time saying O Lord
God thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy greatness, and thy mighty hand;-- I
[Note: fold in the page, rendering most of the line illegible] wroth with me for your sakes, and
would not hear me: and the Lord said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no
more unto me of this matter. Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine
[u]Eyes[/u] westward, and Northward and Southward and Eastward, and behold it with
thine eyes for [u]thou shalt not go over this Jordan"[/u]

2
It did not take away anything from the bitterness of this disappointment to know
that it was the result of his own sin. It is all stated in the 20th Chapter of Numbers
(Num 20:2-5, 7-12). And there was no water for the congregation, and they gathered
themselves together against Moses and against Aaron. And the people chided with
Moses and spoke saying Would God that we had died when our brethren died
before the Lord And why have ye brought up the congregation of the Lord into
this wilderness, that he and our cattle should die then And wherefore have
ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to bring us in unto this evil place?
it is not place of [?seed?], or of pigs, or of vines, or of pomegranates, [u]neither is
there any water to drink[/u]."
"And the Lord spoke unto Moses saying, take the [?rod?]
and gather [?thou?] the assembly together, thou and Aaron thy [?brother?] and speak ye
unto the rock before their eyes and it shall give forth its water, and thou shall
bring forth to them water out of the rock. And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation
together before the rock and he said unto them Hear now ye rebels: must we
fetch you water out of this rock And Moses lifted up his hand and with his rod
he [illegible] the rock [?there?]: And the water came out abundantly, and the con-
gregation drank, and their beasts also.
"And the Lord spoke unto Moses and Aaron Because ye
believed me not to sanctify, me in the eyes of the children of Israel,
[u]therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have
given them[u]" Aaron did a few months after on Mount Hor and was buried there
And now God said to Moses (Deut 21: 49-52) "Get thee up into this mountain
Abarim unto Mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab that is over against Jericho:
and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a [?possession?]
-- and die in the [?mount?] whither thou givest up and be gathered unto thy people, as
Aaron thy brother died ^[illegible ?Mount Hor?] and was gathered unto his people yet thou shall see the land
before thee; but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give unto the children
of Israel" Was there any thought in Moses' head that his lot was a hard one?- that
[?to?] trespass had [u]much[/u] to excuse it in the fierce chiding of the people who had been a
stiff-necked and rebellious race, and who had on more than one occasion taken
up stones to stone him but with whom for forty years he had borne with such ex-
emplary patience that it was truly written of him "Now the man Moses was very
much above all the men which were upon the face of the earth (Num 12:3)
If he had such thoughts, which would seem natural enough, he did not make them
known. There is something wonderfully beautiful, nay sublime in the calm obedience
with which this aged saint submitted [?to?] God's decree--laid his hands
upon Joshua and committed his office to him--gathered his people together
on one of the plains of Moab--rehearsed God's dealings with them from the time
they came out of Egypt-- re-stated the code of [?Canon?] that he had given them--
gave such instructions as might benefit them in their future course - concluded
with a prophetic parting blessings upon Each separate tribe-- and then went up from the
plains of Moab to the top of Pisgah, over against Jericho, to [illegible] the promised land and
die-- "Gods ways are not our ways nor his thoughts our thoughts. As the heavens are higher
than the earth so are his ways higher than our ways and his thoughts than our thoughts."
[u]Whatever we may think[/u], it seemed good to him to allow, that in the Mosaic dispen-
sation, which was essentially an educating dispensation of law the great leader
of the priesthood and the great leader of the government should both [?by then our?] fault for-
just an entrance into the land of Canaan. May it not have been designed as a
striking lesson to the children of Israel that "by the deeds of the law shall no flesh be
justified on his sight--that even their very best men, their noblest leaders could
not endure the test? But [?whether?] the design is was accomplished when, in the
sight of all Israel, Moses went up on Mount Nebo to die. May not God then have [?aided?]
while in the interests of his moral government, displaying his justice to show
also in just as impressive a manner, that this did not blot out his [?money?] and his
love? that [u]his personal love to Moses was just as true and strong as ever[/u]?
Maybe not have wished to illustrate that truth so often revealed in Scripture
which is thus stated by the Apostle Paul (Rom 5:20) Moreover the law [?entered?]
that the offence might abouund but where sin abounded [u]grace dud much
more abound[/u]" I love to thin, [u]what I believe is true[/u] that God, on that [illegible]
mountain top Moab Moses with such a manifestation of infinite love as took
the last drop of bitterness from his [?cup?] of disappointment, and crowned his
dying hour with joy unspeakable and full of glory (Deut 34: 1-4). "And the
lord showed him all the land of Gilead unto [?Dan?] and, all Naphtali, and the land
of Ephraim and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, into the utmost sea, And
the South, and the plain valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees unto Zoar." And then
Moses, the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, and the Lord
buried him in a valley over against Beth-[illegible]: but no man knoweth his sepluchre
unto this day." His soul entered the [u]heavenly[/u] Canaan; and surely for him
personally this was infinitely better than fighting his way into the earthly Canaan.
Fifteen hundred years after he entered this Canaan also and, with the Lord
of glory ^[illegible is] from Mount Tabor
[u]2d[/u]
I think God's burial of Moses was designed to be not only a token
of love but also a mark of [u]distinguished honor[/u]-- Among men he was well
entitled to great honor both on account of the [u]high official position[/u] which he held
in this world's historical development, and also on account of the nobleness of
his own character. The historical development of God's manifestation of mercy to
mankind is under two periods. These are often called [u]dispensations[/u], no doubt
because they exhibit God dispensing love and mercy to a fallen race. Each
of these dispensations had, by Gods appointment, its own great leader and each
received its name from its leade. Hence one is called the Mosaic [u]dis-[/u]
pensation and the other the [u]Christian[/u] dispensation, one named from [u]Moses[/u]
and the other from [u]Christ[/u]. The first dispensation was a preparation for the second
and the first [?leader?] a [?type?] of the second. Moses was on Earth the prophet,
[illegible] and ordainer of the priesthood of one dispensation and Christ
was the prophet, [illegible], and ordainer of the priesthood of the other. Both
belonged to the same house, and that house God's house [u]Moses[/u] a faithful
[u]servant[/u] + Christ's faithful [u]Son[/u] ([illegible]: 3: 5,6) See also Acts 3:22 "For

(3)
Moses truly said unto the fathers a prophet shall the Lord your God
raise up unto you of your brethren [u]like unto me[/u]: him shall ye hear
in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you." Moses was a Mediator between
God and his chosen people -- Christ was the mediator between God and all
mankind. Moses thus standing, by God's appointment, second only to Christ in high
official position, was granted the unusual honor of a [u]Divine[/u] burial.
His character too was befitting his rank. Royally he [?bore?] himself in his
high position. He was one of God's [u]noblemen[/u], noble physically, noble mentally,
noble spirituality. Not very much is said about his physical appearance but
Enough to give us some idea what it was. It is said in the Acts (Acts7 :20)
"In this time was Moses from and was [u]exceeding fair[/u]". The daughter of
Pharaoh speaks of his [u]divine form[/u] as a reason for making him heir to
the kingdom. The Jewish historian Josephus tells us a little more. He says
that "God did also give him that tallness, when he was but three years
old, as was wonderful; and as for his beauty, there was nobody so impolite
as when they saw Moses they were not greatly surprise at the [?beauty?] of
his countenance [?nay?] it happened frequently that those that meet him as he
was carried along the road, were obliged to turn again on seeing the child,
that they left what they were about and stood still a great while to look
upon him; for the beauty of the child was so remarkable and natural to him
as many accounts that it detained the spectators, and made them stay longer to
look upon him." He was a man of [u]signal ability[/u], and in his early life
Enjoyed and improved [?unusual?] opportunities for [u]mental cultivation[/u].
Adopted by the daughter of Egypt's king, he became in the expressive language
of Scripture "learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians [?and?] mighty in words
and deeds. To be "learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians" was at that
day to be proficient in the [?best?] learning and the profounded wisdom that
the world afforded. There still remain ponderous masses of cut stone to teach
us that the Egyptians had mechanical appliances [--from--] for transporting and ele-
vating heavy weights equal ^[or superior] to anything that can be found in the world now;
and there are certain lines and angles, and measurements connected
with the old pyraminds, thou well-nigh imperishable monumnets, that tell us
they were acquainted with astronomical facts since long lost to the world and
[u]re-discovered[/u] in modern times.--- Before he was forty years old then
Moses was a man of profound learning and mighty in words and in deeds
His ability was such that the Egyptians though jealous of his power were
compelled to respect it. At one time the Ethiopians were sweeping over
their land and taking city after city when, hopeless of any other resource
they appealed to Moses "So Moses" as writes Josephus "at the persuasion both of
Thermuthis (the princess who had adopted him) and the King himself cheerfully
undertook the business: and the sacred scribes of both nations were glad
then of the Egyptians that they should at once overcome their enemies by his
valor, and that by the same piece of management Moses should be
slain, but thou of the [u]Hebrews[/u], that they should escape from the Egyptians
because Moses was to be their general; but Moses [?prevented?] the enemies
and took and led his army before their enemies were apprised of his
attacking them and joining battle with them he [?best?] them, and deprived
them of the hope they had of success against the Egyptians and went on
overthrowing their cities, and indeed made a great slaughter of the Ethiopians
Now when the Egyptian army had once tasted of this prosperous success
by means of Moses, they did not [?slacken?] their diligence, insomuch that
the Ethiopians were in danger of being reduced to slavery and all sorts
of destruction; and at length they retired in Saba, which was a royal city of
Ethiopia." The same winter Else where gives this testimony "But this man was
admirable for his virtue, and powerful in making men give credit to
what he delivered, not only during the time of his natural life, but even then
to still no one of the Hebrews who does not act even now, as if Moses was present and
ready to perish him if he should do any thing ^[that is] indecent". [?Oncemore?] "He was
one that exceeded all men that ever were in understanding and made the best
use of what that understanding suggested upon. He had a very graceful way
of speaking and addressing himselfto the countitude: and as this other quali-
fications, he had such a full command of his persons, as if he hardly had
any such in his soul and only knew them by their names, as rather perceiving
them in other men than in himself. He was also such a general of an army
as is seldom seen, as well as such a prophet as was never known
and this to such a degree that whatsoever he [?pronounced?] you would think
you heard the voice of [--a--] God himself". This is the testimony of Josephus, but
just delivered from slavery through a series of most difficult experiences
for forty years, and notwithstanding [?this?] frequent and bitter complain-
ings maintained his leadership to the end and [u]so[/u] maintained it that he
died universally lamented.--- Perhaps it will be said that this [?success?]
[illegible] to God continued, presence and guidance. Certainly [?it?] was. And
this leads us to say after all
[u]The real grandeurs of Moses life was in his moral
and religious character[/u]
We have not time to go over his whole history but
will notice only two points of excellence in his character. (1st) So that
mentioned in Heb 11:23-26 "By faith Moses when he was come to years, re-
fused to be called the son of Pharoah's daughter, choosing rather to suffer

(4)
[illegible] with the people of God than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season:
esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt."
We know little of his life up to this time, when he was forty years old, but
he then made this deliberate choice which essentially gave direction to his
whole after histort. He was at present in a position where all his scholarly
tastes could be gratified, unbounded wealth was at his command, he had
been made heir to the throne of Egypt with no one to dispute his claim. But
Moses "when he was come to years" prepared to separate himself from this
royal family, [illegible] the wrath of the king, give up all his flattering worldly
prospects and publicly cast in his lot with those who had [illegible] been and
even still [?despised?] stare? Why? Because they were the people of God through whom
in time Christ would come, They worshipped and served the living and [?true?]
[?God?] while the Egyptians were idolaters. No amount of power, fame or [--learning--]
treasure on the one hand, therefore, and no amount of contempt, danger
and distress on the other could deter him from taking his stand with
his people and his God. And how wonderfully this did change his [?temporal?]
condition. It took him from the luxury and splendor of a royal court
and made him, for all the remaining eighty years of his life, a wanderer
in the wilderness; forty years as a refugee, in the land of Midian, and
forty years with his people in their journeyings. [u]But what cared he?[/u] Even
the [u]reproach[/u] of Christ was more precious to him than all the treasures
that Egypt could give; his eye was upon a fadeless crown more glorious
than ever rested on Pharaoh's brow - he was everyday drawing near to
that Canaan of heavenly rest, which would make him forget all Earthly
toil and whose priceless treasures would make him forget all earthly
loss. "For he had respect unto the recompense of reward"
(2) A second trait of rare excellence in the character of Moses
was this - [u]His patient unchanged kindness towards those who very often
[?met?] this kindness with mourning that was most unjust and [?ungratitude?]
that was inexcusable[/u]. The whole history show that his honest earnest
desire, from the beginning to the End, was the welfare of his people and that
he was [?unsparing?] in his Efforts to promote the wElfare. And yet these
[--whom--] people whom he had led out of slavery were all the time changing
their calamities upon their deliverer, calamities which he shared with
them and for which he was in no way responsible. Their complaints began
before they crossed the Red Sea when they said unto Moses Because
there were no graves in Egypt [?hast?] thou taken us away to die in the wil-
derness? Wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us to carry us forth out of Egypt?
But Moses only said "Fear ye not stand still and see the salvation of the
Lord which he will show you to-day. "[u]Would God we had died in the
land of Egypt[/u]" came to be a favorite utterance of the children of Israel
in their complainings against Moses. [?Within?] less than two yearsthey had ten
times been in open rebellion against God and his servant Moses. Twice
during that time the Lord proposed to Moses to destroy the people for their
sins, and make of him a great nation, and each time the utterly unselfish
prayers of Moses shine like leaves of heavenly light upon the dark cloud
of his people's discontent. "Lord why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people?"
Wherefore should the Egyptians speak and say. For mischief did he bring
them out to slay them in the mountains" [?him?] from thy [?fierce?] wrath
and repent of this evil against thy people"- "Oh this people have sinned a
great sin. Yet now of thou wilt forgive their sin"-- and if not
blot me, I pray thee out of thy book which thou hast written." "Pardon I
beseech thee, the iniquity of this people, accourding unto the greatness of thy
mercy, and as thou hast forgiven this people from Egypt even until now"
"And the Lord said I have pardoned according to thy word". We have
no record of the next 37 years but that the children of Israel did not
cease their complaints we infer from Ps 95.10 "Forty years long was I grieved
with this generation and said It is a people do err in their heart
and have not known my ways". The whole book of Deuteronomy is a standing
Evidence that the patience kindness, and love of Moses for his people
continued to the End in spite of all their fault-finding and ingratitude
We are inclined to say that this excellence of Moses was more than [u]noble[/u]
it was [u]Christ-like Godlike[/u]
Many other excellencies in the character of Moses
might be mentioned but these two must suffice: and will so far
justify us in saying that if high official position and distinguished
excellend can [?ere?] make it fitting that any man should receive a
divine burial, then was it fitting that [u]God[/u] should bury [u]Moses[/u]
[u]3d[/u]
Finally Was not the burial of Moses in part symbolical? He
was a [u]representative[/u] person- He was the representative of the [u]old[/u] dispen--
sation and Christ of the [u]New[/u]. Now put the[--se--] two following facts
over against each other. [u]Moses died and God [u]buried[/u] him so
that no man knoweth his sepulchre unto this day. Christ died
by the hands of men, and God [u]raised[/u] him and placed him on a



申命记 34:6
“将他埋葬在摩押地的山谷中
[难以辨认] 反对贝丝皮奥;但没有人知道他的坟墓
这一天”请特别注意第一句
在“他埋葬他”这节经文中,记住“他”是指
对上帝和“他”对摩西 上帝埋葬了摩西
多么奇怪的葬礼!多么美妙的葬礼!如果
有任何服务员,然后他们是男人,不是男人,而是施助者
天使,以及当时可能 [无法辨认] 进行的任何葬礼
正如上帝亲自告诉我们的那样。带着我们无限的父爱
他带着永恒的力量,带着他年迈的信徒
仆人和让他像疲倦的孩子一样休息,
结局是和平。我们想起那句优美的句子
比克斯泰斯以此开始他的“昨天、今天和永远”
“我在地球上朝圣的最后一天即将结束,结束
有平安。”摩西也是如此。他的不同经历
漫长的生命结束了,他的尘世朝圣结束了,
结局是和平。它是关于他的,有什么
从来没有写过所有那些不为人知的人中的任何其他人
无数人在世界漫长的历史中生过死去。它

上帝埋葬了他?
上帝为什么埋葬摩西?
我们不应该太好奇地窥探上帝没有看到的事情
适合透露,但我认为我们不假思索地建议在掩埋
摩西 上帝有意并确实表明了他对他特别的爱,这就是
对心爱的门徒约翰的救主之爱。温柔地埋葬死者是一个象征
通常为最亲近的亲戚和最亲爱的朋友保留的尊重和爱。所以
在目前的情况下,上帝埋葬摩西只是他爱的延续
有[难以辨认]他一生。当一个婴儿看着他时,他将他从死亡中救了出来
在他长大的过程中,给了他特殊的机会来准备
[无法辨认] 与他的亲密程度甚至超过与他所选择的任何其他人的亲密关系
正如圣经所说,他与他面对面交谈,就像一个人与他交谈一样
朋友,然后连续四十年。它被表示为一件美妙的事情
以色列人曾被允许从[无法辨认]
[无法辨认] 西奈山(申命记 9:32 和 33)
现在在你面前,自从上帝在地球上创造人类的那一天,并要求
从天堂的一边到另一边是否有这样的
像 [?this?] 伟大的 [难以辨认的] 主义之类的东西,还是听说过类似的东西?人们有没有听说过
上帝在火中说话的声音,就像 [无法辨认的] 所听到的和生活的那样?
然而这些人在远处[/u]敬拜[u]。他们不被允许触摸
登上甚至靠近它,因为它规定“只有摩西[u][/u]
靠近主。”只有他才能[无法辨认]山,可以进入
雷霆的秘密之地,全能者——上帝的存在
就这样直到他生命的尽头。 “从那时起就没有先知出现
在以色列 [?like?] 到耶和华面对面认识的摩西(申 34:10)。什么时候
[?寻求?]在生活中存在密切的亲密关系,这不是很大的[?重新排序?[当摩西
死了“[u]上帝埋葬了他[/u]。”
上帝可能还有一个特殊的原因
希望[--无法辨认--]此时给他年迈的[无法辨认]
年纪大了,他爬上护城河山的那座崇高的山峰,到我迦南地死去。
我毫不怀疑他的灵魂[u]和平[/u],因为他吸取了太多教训
屈服于上帝的旨意,通过与上帝的旨意抗争而让他的心受到伤害
对即将到来的安息和天上的荣耀的想法无疑对他来说是愉快的,但我
他想,他的喜悦中一定夹杂着一些悲伤。就像

[无法辨认] 他是 [无法辨认] 带孩子出去的
以色列进入迦南地。直到那些年早些时候,他还完全期望
[无法辨认]他们的任性,他对他的人民的感情就是这样
一个父亲为他的孩子。他[无法辨认]领导的那些人,实际上已经在
他的眼睛,因为所有离开埃及地的成年 [无法辨认] 男人和女人
死在旷野。他仍然 [无法辨认] 能够成为他们的领袖
因为他虽然已经一百二十岁,但“他的年龄不是

被从他们身上夺走 [无法辨认] 他们最需要他的帮助来捕捉围墙
迦南的城市,并遇到阿纳克的那些巨人儿子。摩西敏锐地
从第三章记载的他自己的【难以辨认】中感觉到这种失望
申命记(见申命记 3:23-27)“我当时求主说,主啊
上帝,你已经开始向你的仆人展示你的伟大和你的大能;我
[注:折叠在页面中,使大部分行难以辨认]看在你的份上,我很生气,并且
不听我的话。主对我说,你就够了。说不

知道这并没有从这种失望的痛苦中带走任何东西
这是他自己犯罪的结果。民数记二十章都说了
(民数记 20:2-5, 7-12)。没有水给会众喝,他们就聚集
他们一起反对摩西和亚伦。人们责备
摩西说,当我们的弟兄死去的时候,上帝会不会让我们死去
在主面前你们为什么把主的会众带到
这片荒野,他和我们的牲畜应该死
你们让我们从埃及上来,把我们带到这个邪恶的地方吗?
它不是种子的地方,也不是猪的地方,也不是葡萄树的地方,也不是石榴的地方,也不是
有水喝。”
“耶和华对摩西说,拿着杖
召集会众,你和你的兄弟亚伦,你们说话

使他们从磐石中流出水来。摩西和亚伦召集会众
一起在岩石前,他对他们说,你们这些叛逆者现在听:我们必须
从这磐石中取水,摩西举起他的手,用他的杖
他[无法辨认]那里的岩石:水大量涌出,并且...
众喝了,他们的牲畜也喝了。
“耶和华对摩西和亚伦说话,因为你们
相信我不会在以色列人眼中使我成圣,
所以你们不可带这会众进入我所拥有的土地
给了他们”亚伦几个月后在何尔山上做了,并被埋在那里
现在上帝对摩西说(申命记 21:49-52)“你上这山
亚巴琳到尼波山,就是在摩押地对着耶利哥的地方:
看哪,迦南地,我赐给以色列人为业
——死在你放弃的山上,被聚集到你的人民那里,就像
你的兄弟亚伦死了 [无法辨认] 何尔山,被聚集到他的人民那里,但你将看到这片土地
在你面前;但你不可前往我赐给孩子们的土地
以色列人” 摩西的脑海里有没有想过他的命运很艰难?
至?非法侵入有很多借口可以在那些曾经是
顽固而叛逆的种族,他们不止一次地
用石头砸死他,但他和谁一起忍受了四十年这样的前任——
以耐性为代表,它确实是描写他的:“摩西这个人很
远超世上所有的人(民数记 12:3)
如果他有这样的想法,这似乎很自然,他不会做
已知。有一种奇妙的美丽,在平静的服从中是崇高的
这位年迈的圣徒顺服了上帝的旨意——用他的双手
在约书亚身上,将他的职分交给他——聚集他的人民
在摩押平原之一——演练了神从那时起对他们的处理
他们来自埃及——重述了他给他们的卡农法典——
给出了可能在他们未来的课程中受益的指示 - 结束
对每一个独立的部落都有预言性的临别祝福——然后从
摩押平原直到皮斯迦山顶,对着耶利哥,到[无法辨认]应许地和
死——“上帝的道路不是我们的道路,他的想法不是我们的想法。因为天堂更高
他的道路高过我们的道路,他的意念高过我们的意念,他的道路高过大地。”
不管我们怎么想,在他看来,允许伟大领袖在本质上是一个教育法律的摩西时代是件好事
到那时,神职人员和政府的伟大领袖都应该是我们的错——
只是进入迦南地的入口。可能它没有被设计为
给以色列人一个惊人的教训:“凡有血气的,
在他看来是有道理的——即使是他们最优秀的人,他们最崇高的领袖也可以
经不起考验?但设计是否完成时,在
摩西在以色列众人面前,上尼波山去死。愿上帝不曾帮助过
而在他的道德政府的利益,展示他的正义来展示
同样令人印象深刻的是,这并没有抹去他的钱和他的
爱?他对摩西的个人爱与以往一样真实和强烈吗?
也许并不想说明圣经中经常揭示的真理
使徒保罗这样说(罗马书 5:20)
冒犯可能比比皆是,但在罪恶充沛的地方,恩典却很多
比比皆是”我爱瘦,我相信上帝是真的,在那 [无法辨认]
山顶摩押摩西带着无限爱的表现
从他的失望之杯中滴下最后一滴苦涩,加冕他的
带着难以言喻的喜悦和充满荣耀的临终时刻(申命记 34:1-4)。 “而且
主将基列全地指给他看,直到大拿和拿弗他利全地,
以法莲和玛拿西,以及犹大全地,直到大海,
南,耶利哥平原,直到琐珥的棕树城。”然后
耶和华的仆人摩西死在摩押地,耶和华
把他埋在贝丝对面的山谷里——[无法辨认]:但没有人知道他的坟墓
直到今天。”他的灵魂进入了天上的迦南;当然对他来说
就个人而言,这比打入尘世迦南要好得多。
一千五百年后,他也进入了这迦南地,并与主同在
他泊山的荣耀[无法辨认]
二维
我认为上帝埋葬摩西的目的不仅仅是一个象征
爱的象征,也是尊贵的象征——在男人中他很好
由于他所担任的高官,他有权获得极大的荣誉
在这个世界的历史发展中,也因为
他自己的性格。神向人施怜悯的历史发展
人类处于两个时期。毫无疑问,这些通常被称为分配
因为他们表现出上帝将爱和怜悯分赐给堕落的种族。每个
根据上帝的任命,这些时代中有自己的伟大领袖和每个
从它的领导者那里得到了它的名字。因此,一个被称为摩西时代,另一个被称为基督教时代,一个以摩西命名
另一个来自基督。第一次分配是为第二次分配做准备
第一个领导者是第二个领导者的类型。摩西是地球上的先知,
[无法辨认] 和一个教期和基督的圣职任命者
是先知,[无法辨认],并且是另一个祭司的任命者。两个都
属于同一家,而那家上帝的家摩西是忠实的
仆人和基督信实的儿子([无法辨认]:3:5,6)另见使徒行传 3:22 “对于

(3)
摩西真实地对列祖说,耶和华你们的神必有一位先知
为你们兴起像我一样的弟兄:你们要听他的
凡他要对你说的一切。”摩西是两个人之间的中保。
上帝和他的选民——基督是上帝和所有人之间的中保
人类。摩西如此站立,按着上帝的命定,仅次于高高在上的基督
官职,被授予了神葬的不同寻常的荣誉。
他的性格也很适合他的等级。皇家他在他的
高位。他是上帝的贵族之一,身体高贵,精神高尚,
崇高的灵性。关于他的外貌没有太多的说法,但
足以让我们了解它是什么。使徒行传中说(使徒行传 7:20)
“在这个时代,摩西来自并且非常美丽”。的女儿
法老说他的神圣形式是让他继承
王国。犹太历史学家约瑟夫斯告诉我们更多。他说
“上帝也给了他这么高的身高,那时他才三岁
旧的,好极了;至于他的美貌,没有人这么不礼貌
就像当他们看到摩西时,他们对摩西的美丽并不感到惊讶
他的脸色不
被抬到路上,看到孩子后不得不再次转身,
他们离开了他们正在做的事情并站了很长时间看
在他身上;因为孩子的美貌对他来说是如此非凡和自然
尽可能多的帐户,它拘留了观众,让他们停留更长时间
看着他。”他是一个有信号能力的人,在他的早年生活中
享受和改善不同寻常的精神修养机会。
被埃及国王的女儿收养,他成为了富有表现力的语言
圣经“学了埃及人一切的智慧,说话有大能
和事迹。要“学习埃及人的一切智慧”就是在那
日精通最好的学问和深奥的智慧,
世界提供。仍然有大量的切割石要教
我们知道埃及人有机械设备运输和提升与现在世界上任何东西相同或更好的重物;
并且有一定的线条和角度,以及连接的测量值
与古老的金字塔,你几乎不朽的monumnets,告诉我们
他们熟悉的天文事实早已被世人遗忘,
在现代重新发现。那时他还不到四十岁
摩西学识渊博,言行举止
他的能力如此强大,以至于埃及人虽然嫉妒他的力量,
不得不尊重它。有一次,埃塞俄比亚人席卷而来
他们的土地,一个又一个城市,没有任何其他资源
他们向摩西呼吁“所以摩西”,正如约瑟夫斯所写的那样,“在双方的劝说下
Thermuthis(收养他的公主)和国王本人兴高采烈
承办了这项业务:两国的神圣文士都很高兴
然后埃及人认为他们应该立即用他的力量战胜他们的敌人
勇气,并且通过同样的管理,摩西应该是
被杀,但你是希伯来人,他们应该从埃及人手中逃脱
因为摩西将成为他们的将军;但摩西阻止了敌人
并在敌人得知他的消息之前占领并领导了他的军队
攻击他们并与他们作战,他击败了他们,剥夺了他们
他们怀着战胜埃及人的希望,继续前进
推翻他们的城市,确实对埃塞俄比亚人进行了大屠杀
现在,当埃及军队曾经尝到这种繁荣的成功时
借着摩西,他们没有放松自己的勤奋,以至于
埃塞俄比亚人有沦为奴隶的危险
毁灭性的;最后他们在萨巴岛退休了,那是一个皇家城市
埃塞俄比亚。” 同一个冬天 其他地方给出了这个见证 “但是这个人是
因他的美德而令人钦佩,并且在使人赞叹
他所交付的,不仅在他的自然生命期间,而且即使在那时
直到现在,仍然没有一个希伯来人不行动,好像摩西在场,
如果他做任何不雅的事情,他就准备灭亡”。再一次“他是
一个超越所有理解并做到最好的人
使用该理解所建议的内容。他有一个非常优雅的方式
对伯爵说话和自言自语:作为其他资格,他对自己的人身拥有如此全面的指挥权,就好像他几乎没有
他灵魂中的任何这样的人,只知道他们的名字,
他们在别人身上而不是在他自己身上。他也是这样一个军队的将军
少见的,以及不为人知的先知
这到了这样的程度,无论他说什么,你都会认为
你听到了上帝自己的声音”。这是约瑟夫斯的见证,但
刚刚通过一系列最艰难的经历从奴隶制中解脱出来
四十年来,尽管如此频繁而痛苦的抱怨——
ings 一直保持着他的领导地位
世人悲叹而死。或许会说这次成功
[难以辨认] 神继续,临在和引导。当然是。和
毕竟这导致我们说
摩西一生的真正伟大之处在于他的道德
和宗教性质
我们没有时间回顾他的整个历史,但是
只会注意到他性格中的两点出色之处。 (1) 这样
希伯来书 11:23-26 提到:“摩西因着信长大了,不肯称为法老女儿的儿子,宁愿受苦

(4)
[无法辨认] 与上帝的子民在一起,胜过暂时享受罪中之乐:
看基督所受的凌辱,比埃及的财宝更宝贵。”
直到他 40 岁时,我们对他的生活知之甚少,但
然后他做出了这个深思熟虑的选择,这基本上给了他的方向
整个后的历史。他目前处于一个他所有的学术
口味可以得到满足,无限的财富在他的指挥下,他有
成为埃及王位的继承人,没有人对他的主张提出异议。但
摩西“长大后”准备将自己与这
王室,[难以辨认]国王的愤怒,放弃他所有的谄媚世俗
前景并公开与那些[难以辨认]曾经和
竟然还嫌弃瞪眼?为什么?因为他们是上帝的子民
在基督降临的时候,他们敬拜和服侍活人和真实的人
神,而埃及人是偶像崇拜者。没有多少权力、名誉或
一方面珍惜,因此,再多的蔑视,危险
另一方的痛苦可能会阻止他采取立场
他的子民和他的神。这确实改变了他的时间
健康)状况。它使他摆脱了皇家宫廷的奢华和辉煌
并创造了他,为所有余下八十年的人生,一个流浪者
在旷野;在米甸地避难四十年,
与他的子民一起旅行四十年。但他在乎什么?甚至
基督的羞辱对他来说比所有的财宝更宝贵
埃及可以给予的;他的眼睛注视着一个更辉煌的永不褪色的王冠
比以往任何时候都停留在法老的额头上,他每天都在靠近
天上安息的迦南,这会让他忘记地上的一切
辛劳,他的无价之宝会让他忘记世间的一切
失利。 “因为他尊重赏赐的报应”
(2) 摩西品格中罕见的第二个卓越品质
这是 - 他对那些经常
以最不义最忘恩负义的哀悼来迎接这份恩情
这是不可原谅的。整个历史表明他诚实认真
自始至终,他的愿望就是人民的福祉,
他不遗余力地宣传福利。而这些被他带出奴役的人却一直在变
他们的灾难临到他们的拯救者,他与他们分享的灾难
他们,而他对此没有任何责任。他们的抱怨开始了
在他们渡过红海之前,他们对摩西说,因为
埃及没有坟墓,你把我们带到旷野去死吗?你为什么这样待我们,把我们带出埃及呢?
但摩西只说:“不要害怕,不要站着看上帝的救恩。
主,他今天将向您展示。 “上帝会不会死在
埃及地”成为以色列子民最喜爱的话语
在他们对摩西的抱怨中。在不到两年的时间里,他们有十个
多次公开反抗上帝和他的仆人摩西。两次
在那段时间里,耶和华向摩西提议要毁灭百姓,因为他们
罪恶,使他成为一个伟大的国家,每次都是完全无私的
摩西的祈祷像天上的光叶照在乌云上
他的人民的不满。 “主啊,为什么你对你的人民发怒?”
为什么埃及人应该说话和说话。他带来了恶作剧
他们出来在山上杀死他们”他从你的猛烈愤怒中解脱出来
并悔改对你的人民的这种邪恶”-“哦,这人民犯了罪
大罪。然而现在你要赦免他们的罪”——如果不是
请把我从你写的书里抹掉。” “对不起,我
恳求你,这人民的罪孽,根据你的伟大
仁慈,直到现在你才从埃及赦免这人民”
“主说我已照你的话赦免了”。我们有
没有关于接下来 37 年的记录,但以色列人没有
停止他们的抱怨,我们从诗篇 95:10 推断“我悲伤了四十年
与这一代人说这是一个人在他们心中犯错
并且不知道我的方式”。整个申命记是一个地位
证明摩西对他的人民的耐心和仁慈
不顾他们所有的挑剔和忘恩负义,一直坚持到最后
我们倾向于说,摩西的这种卓越不仅是高尚的
这是基督般的上帝般的
摩西品格中的许多其他优点
可能会提到,但这两个就足够了:到目前为止
证明我们有理由说,如果高官和杰出
优秀的可以使任何人都应该得到一个合适的
神圣的葬礼,那么上帝埋葬摩西是否合适
3d
最后,摩西的葬礼难道不是部分象征性的吗?他
是一个代表人物——他是旧时代和新时代基督的代表。现在把以下两个事实
互相对抗。摩西死了,上帝就这样埋葬了他
直到今天没有人知道他的坟墓。基督死了
靠着人的手,上帝把他扶起来,放在一个
