The Biblical text illustrated is:

48 And the LORD spoke unto Moses that same day, saying, 49 Climb up into this mountain Abarim, [unto] mount Nebo, which [is] in the land of Moab, that [is] over against Jericho, and behold the land of Canaan, which I give as inheritance unto the sons of Israel, 50 and die in the mountain which thou shalt climb and be gathered unto thy peoples, as Aaron thy brother died in Mount Hor and was gathered unto his peoples, 51 because ye trespassed against me among the sons of Israel at the waters of Meribah-Kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin, because ye did not sanctify me in the midst of the sons of Israel. 52 Yet thou shalt see the land before [thee], but thou shalt not enter there to the land which I give the sons of Israel.”

Moses is depicted as an old bearded man, barefoot and robed.
