80. וּמַה שֶּׁאָמַר בְּךָ, (דברים לד) וְלֹא יָדַע אִישׁ אֶת קְבֻרָתוֹ עַד הַיּוֹם הַזֶּה, אוֹי לְאוֹתָם אֲטוּמֵי לֵב, סְתוּמֵי עֵינַיִם, שֶׁלֹּא יוֹדְעִים קְבוּרָתְךָ, שֶׁהָיִיתָ אַתָּה מְבַקֵּשׁ רַחֲמִים מֵהַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא שֶׁלֹּא יַכְנִיס אוֹתְךָ לְאוֹתָהּ קְבוּרָה שֶׁבָּהּ אַתָּה נִקְרָא מֵת. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב (יהושע א) מֹשֶׁה עַבְדִּי מֵת. וְאוֹתָם טִפְּשִׁים אוֹמְרִים, וְכִי מֹשֶׁה הָיָה מְפַחֵד מִמִּיתָה, לָצֵאת מֵהָעוֹלָם הַזֶּה לָעוֹלָם הַבָּא, כִּשְׁאָר הַבְּרִיּוֹת?! וְהֵם לֹא יוֹדְעִים שֶׁקְּבוּרָתְךָ וּמִיתָתְךָ אֵיךְ הִיא.
Zohar Ki Tetze
The passing of Moses is in the portion of Haazinu. God instructs Moses to go up the mountain and die there.
“עֲלֵה אֶל-הַר הָעֲבָרִים הַזֶּה הַר-נְבוֹ, אֲשֶׁר בְּאֶרֶץ מוֹאָב, אֲשֶׁר, עַל-פְּנֵי יְרֵחוֹ; וּרְאֵה אֶת-אֶרֶץ כְּנַעַן, אֲשֶׁר אֲנִי נֹתֵן לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לַאֲחֻזָּה”
“Go up to this mountain of the Abarim, Mount Nebo, which is in the land of Moab opposite Jericho, and look at the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the sons of Israel for a possession.”
God tells Moses to see the land he is giving to the children of Israel before God ‘gathers’ him as he did for Aaron his brother.
Rabbi Shimon tells Moses that through this Torah portion he needs to come back to this world, live and enter the Land of Israel.
With this portion, Moses would unify with his bride, which is Malchut, and the Holy Land of Israel.
The Land of Israel is the covenant’s promise of peace that was in the hands of Moses but God gave it to Pinchas, who is Elijah the prophet, that would announce the coming of Mashiach and the process to establish the final and everlasting peace.
At the time of the sin of the Golden Calf, God told Moses to go down because the nation sinned.
Exodus 32:7 “And YHVH said to Moses, “Go down, for your people, whom you brought up out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves.”
Before Moses died God told him to go up the mountain. The Zohar explains that this means that from this mountain he will enter the land of Israel. Because Israel is is on a high level going into the land is a process of elevation. God sent Moses up the mountain in preparation for entering Israel for the final peace.

“וַיִּקְבֹּר אֹתוֹ בַגַּי בְּאֶרֶץ מוֹאָב, מוּל בֵּית פְּעוֹר; וְלֹא-יָדַע אִישׁ אֶת-קְבֻרָתוֹ, עַד הַיּוֹם הַזֶּה”
“And He buried him in the valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth-Peor; but no man knows his burial place to this day.”
Rabbi Shimon says that woe to those with a closed heart and no understanding that don’t know your burial place and think that you begged God for mercy not to be buried and called ‘dead’. Those fools that think that you feared death and leaving this world, have no idea how was your burial and how was your death.
