After their conquest of Sihon, the Lord gave His people victory over Og and the people of Bashan. The tribes of Reuben and Gad as well as half the tribe of Manasseh possessed the land and cities that were conquered in the Transjordan. At this point, Moses asked God to allow him to cross over and see the land beyond the Jordan before his death, but the Lord refused to do this because of Moses’ disobedience when he struck the rock in anger at the grumbling of the people. Instead, the Lord allowed Moses to see the land from a distance at the top of Pisgah across from Jericho.
Reading of Deuteronomy 3
Lord, Your faithfulness and loyal love for Your people are great, in spite of the fact that they rarely appreciate what You have done for them. May I remember Your mighty deeds and acts of lovingkindness and treasure them in my heart.
