Chapter 27

Law of Inheritance

27:1 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.
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 no sons.
27:4 Why should the name of our father be done away from among his family, because he has no son ? Give to 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 to 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 to them.
27:8 And you will speak to the children of Israel, saying, If a man die, and have no son, then ya'll shall cause his inheritance to pass to his daughter.
27:9 And if he have no daughter, then ya'll shall give his inheritance to his brethren.
27:10 And if he have no brethren, then ya'll shall give his inheritance to his father's brethren.
27:11 And if his father have no brethren, then ya'll shall give his inheritance to his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall possess it and it shall be to the children of Israel a statute of judgment, as the LORD commanded Moses.
27:12 And the LORD said to Moses, Y a'll
get up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given to 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 to 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 to Moses, Take ya'll
Yeshua the son of Nun, a man in whom [is] the spirit, and lay your hand upon him;
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 obedient.
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 the congregation.
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 congregation
27:23 And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.
