Moses Facing Jordan: At the end of his long and eventful life, Moses is told by God that he may not cross the Jordan River. He is to go up the mountain, look over the river, and see the good land that is to be his people's land. And when he has seen it, he is to be no more. He is to be gathered to his ancestors.

The oratorio, in seven parts and 36 numbers, tells a retrospective, a looking-back, story of the life of Moses.

19. Canon EXODUS 20 3-17 (KJV)

CHOR Thou shalt have no other god before me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image
or any likeness of any living thing in heaven
or on earth or in the water; thou shalt not
bow down to them and serve them.
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.
Honor thy father and thy mother.
Thou shalt not kill.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
Thou shalt not covet anything that is thy neighbor's.
