The famous question of the Gemara (סוטה יד, א)is why did Moshe want to go into Eretz Yisroel did he want to eat of its fruit? The answer would seem to be simple he wanted to do the Mitzva of living in Israel?

Reb Yackov in His Emes Liyackov says that the Tashbetz says that the Mitzvah of living in Israel is only for those who have a Chelek of Eretz Yisroel since Moshe was A Levi He had None hence he had no Mitzvah of living in Eretz Yisroel!!!!!!
