Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Deuteronomy 34:6

_ _ he buried him — or, “he was buried in a valley,” that is, a ravine or gorge of the Pisgah. Some think that he entered a cave and there died, being, according to an ancient tradition of Jews and Christians, buried by angels (Jude 1:9; Numbers 21:20).

_ _ no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day — This concealment seems to have been owing to a special and wise arrangement of Providence, to prevent its being ranked among “holy places,” and made the resort of superstitious pilgrims or idolatrous veneration, in after ages.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 34:5-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Deuteronomy 34:6

He — The Lord, buried him either immediately, or by the ministry of angels, whereof Michael was the chief or prince. Of his sepulchre — Of the particular place where he was buried: which God hid from the Israelites, to prevent their superstition and idolatry, to which he knew their great proneness. And for this very reason the devil endeavoured to have it known and contended with Michael about it, Jude 1:9. God takes care even of the dead bodies of his servants. As their death is precious, so is their dust. Not one grain of it shall be lost, but the covenant with it shall be remembered.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(d) That the Jews might not have opportunity to commit idolatry by it.
