Law of Inheritance
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
27:2 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,
27:3 Our 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
27:4 Why should the name of our father be done away from
among his family, because he has no son ? Give unto us
[therefore] a possession among the brethren of our father.
27:5 And Moses brought their cause before the LORD.
27:6 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
27:7 The daughters of Zelophehad speak right you will
surely give them a possession of an inheritance among their
father's brethren ; and you will cause the inheritance of their
father to pass unto them.
27:8 And you will speak unto the children of Israel,
saying, If a man die, and have no son, then ya'll shall cause his
inheritance to pass unto his daughter.
27:9 And if he have no daughter, then ya'll shall give his
inheritance unto his brethren.
27:10 And if he have no brethren, then ya'll shall give his
inheritance unto his father's brethren.
27:11 And if his father have no brethren, then ya'll 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.
27:12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Y a'll get up into this
mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the
children of Israel.
27:13 And when you have seen it, you also will be gathered
unto your people, as Aaron your brother was gathered.
27:14 For ya'll 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.
27:15 And Moses spake unto the LORD, saying,
27:16 Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a
man over the congregation,
27:17 Which 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.
27:18 And the LORD said unto Moses, Take ya'll Yeshua the son
of Nun, a man in whom [is] the spirit, and lay your hand upon
27:19 And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all
the congregation ; and give him a charge in their sight.
27:20 And you will put [some] of your honour upon him,
that all the congregation of the children of Israel may be
27:21 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
27:22 And Moses did as the LORD commanded him and he took Yeshua, and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the
27:23 And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge,
as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.
