Description

As Am Yisrael stands at the border of Eretz Yisrael and begins to make final preparations for entering the land, G-d commands Moshe to go up to Har Ha’avarim and view Eretz Yisrael from a distance- and then prepare for his imminent passing. Why would G-d command Moshe to go up and see the land- isn’t that basically teasing him? Moshe entire life’s mission has been to lead the Jews into Israel- a dream that he did not merit to realize. Seeing the land and its beauty would only intensify his desire to enter and increase his sadness over the fact that he would not personally merit entry. Why would Hashem seemingly add salt to the wound by commanding him to glimpse the beauty of the land, and then deny his continued pleas to enter?
