Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 20:24-28

_ _ Aaron shall be gathered unto his people — In accordance with his recent doom, he, attired in the high priest’s costume, was commanded to ascend that mountain and die. But although the time of his death was hastened by the divine displeasure as a punishment for his sins, the manner of his death was arranged in tenderness of love, and to do him honor at the close of his earthly service. His ascent of the mount was to afford him a last look of the camp and a distant prospect of the promised land. The simple narrative of the solemn and impressive scene implies, though it does not describe, the pious resignation, settled faith, and inward peace of the aged pontiff.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 20:22-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 20:24

Because they rebelled — This was one but not the only reason. God would not have Moses and Aaron to carry the people into Canaan, for this reason also, to signify the insufficiency of the Mosaical law and Aaronical priesthood to make them perfectly happy, and the necessity of a better, and to keep the Israelites from resting in them, so as to be taken off from their expectation of Christ.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Aaron shall be (l) gathered unto his people: for he shall not enter into the land which I have given unto the children of Israel, because ye rebelled against my word at the water of Meribah.

(l) Read (Genesis 25:8).
