In earlier research Dtn 34:1a*, 7-9 are mostly regarded as fragments of the priestly report of Moses' death. Since 1988 this has often been denied; however, the present article argues for the traditional position. The absence of a priestly notice on Moses' death ist no proof against P, since the pentateuchal redaction had only used fragments of the priestly report for the birth of Esau and Jacob (Gen 25:19, 20, 26b) as well. Further it is demonstrated that Aaron's death (Num 20:22bff.*), Num 22:1, the announcement of Moses' death and the appointment of Joshua (Num 27:12ff.) belong to P and prepare for the death of Moses. The age of Moses in Ex 7:7 (P) confirms that P knew the oldest deuteronomistic layer in Dtn 3:23ff.*; 31:1-8* and 34:1-6*.
