Deuteronomy 32:50

Context
32:50 You will die 1  on the mountain that you ascend and join your deceased ancestors, 2  just as Aaron your brother died on Mount Hor 3  and joined his deceased ancestors,

1 tn In the Hebrew text the forms translated “you will die…and join” are imperatives, but the actions in view cannot really be commanded. The imperative is used here in a rhetorical, emphatic manner to indicate the certainty of Moses’ death on the mountain. On the rhetorical use of the imperative see IBHS 572 §34.4c.

2 tn Heb “be gathered to your people.” The same phrase occurs again later in this verse.

3 sn Mount Hor. See note on the name “Moserah” in Deut 10:6.
