Jude 1:9

9 But 1aMichael the barchangel, when he contended with the cdevil and disputed concerning the 2body of Moses, 3did not dare to bring a dreviling judgment against him but said, The Lord erebuke you.


92 Moses' body was buried by the Lord in a valley in the land of Moab, in a place known by no man (Deut. 34:6). It must have been done purposely in this manner by the Lord. When Moses and Elijah appeared with Christ on the mount of transfiguration (Matt. 17:3), Moses must have been manifested in his body, which had been kept by the Lord and resurrected. In view of this, probably, the devil attempted to do something to Moses' body, and the archangel argued with him concerning this. The reference in 2 Pet. 2:11 is general, but this is a definite case, concerning the body of Moses.
