Moses’ body

And Moses the servant of the Lord died there in Moab, as the Lord had said.  He buried him in Moab, in the valley opposite Beth Peor, but to this day no one knows where his grave is. ”  Dueteronomy 34:5-6

“But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not himself dare to condemn him for slander but said, “The Lord rebuke you!”  Jude 1:9

Why was Satan disputing about the body of Moses and why does no one know where he is buried?

Many think that Satan wanted to use Moses’ body for the Israelites to idol worship.  This would have been a huuuuge stumbling block for the Israelites.  They needed to focus on conquering the promised land under Joshua.  It is telling that YHWH himself buried Moses!
