Immediately after God agrees to the plea of the daughters of Zelophehad, He turns to Moshe and says Ascend these heights of Abarim and view the land…When you have seen it, you too shall die and be gathered to your people…The juxtaposition here is powerful. Surely Moshe’s desire to enter the land alive was no less than the desire of the daughters of Zelophehad to inherit their father’s land; surely Moshe beseeched God no less than the daughters of Zelophehad; surely Moshe was no less deserving than the daughters of Zelophehad.  Yet, to one God said “yes” and to Moshe He said “no,” – a stark reminder that ultimately the ways of God are inscrutable.
