1 Then came the daughters of Zelophehad, the son of Hepher,
the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of
Manasseh the son of Joseph: and these are the names of his daughters;
Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah.
2 And they stood
before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest, and before the princes and all the
congregation, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,
father died in the wilderness, and he was not in the company of them that
gathered themselves together against the LORD in the company of Korah; but died
in his own sin, and had no sons.
4 Why should the name of our father
be done away from among his family, because he hath no son? Give unto us therefore
a possession among the brethren of our father.
5 And Moses brought
their cause before the LORD.
6 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
daughters of Zelophehad speak right: thou shalt surely give them a possession of
an inheritance among their fathers brethren; and thou shalt cause the
inheritance of their father to pass unto them.
8 And thou shalt speak
unto the children of Israel, saying, If a man die, and have no son, then ye
shall cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter.
9 And if he
have no daughter, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren.
if he have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his fathers
11 And if his father have no brethren, then ye shall give
his inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall
possess it: and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute of judgment,
as the LORD commanded Moses.
12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount
Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel.
when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron
thy brother was gathered.
14 For ye rebelled against my commandment in
the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the
water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the
wilderness of Zin.
15 And Moses spake unto the LORD, saying,
16 Let the
LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation,
may go out before them, and which may go in before them, and which may lead them
out, and which may bring them in; that the congregation of the LORD be not as
sheep which have no shepherd.
18 And the LORD said unto Moses, Take
thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine
hand upon him;
19 And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before
all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight.
thou shalt put some of thine honour upon him, that all the congregation
of the children of Israel may be obedient.
21 And he shall stand
before Eleazar the priest, who shall ask counsel for him after the
judgment of Urim before the LORD: at his word shall they go out, and at his word
they shall come in, both he, and all the children of Israel with him,
even all the congregation.
22 And Moses did as the LORD commanded him:
and he took Joshua, and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the
23 And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a
charge, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.
