The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleDeuteronomy 33:1
And this is the blessing wherewith Moses the man of God
blessed the children of Israel before his death.
] Namely, what is
related in the following verses, this being the general title to the
chapter: Moses is called "the man of God", being raised up of God, and
eminently qualified by him with girls for the work he was called unto,
and by whom he was inspired to say what is after expressed: it is a
title given to prophets, (1 Samuel 9:6-8) ; and so Onkelos here paraphrases
``Moses the prophet of the Lord,''
and Aben Ezra observes, that this is said to show that he blessed
Israel by a spirit of prophecy, and which he did a little before his
death, when very near it; and, as the same writer says, on the very day
of his death.
