NUM 27:1 Then drew near 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.
NUM 27:2 They stood before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest, and before the princes and all the congregation, at the door of the tent of meeting, saying,
NUM 27:3 Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not among the company of those who gathered themselves together against Yahweh in the company of Korah: but he died in his own sin; and he had no sons.
NUM 27:4 Why should the name of our father be taken away from among his family, because he had no son? Give to us a possession among the brothers of our father.
NUM 27:5 Moses brought their cause before Yahweh.
NUM 27:6 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
NUM 27:7 The daughters of Zelophehad speak right: you shall surely give them a possession of an inheritance among their father's brothers; and you shall cause the inheritance of their father to pass to them.
NUM 27:8 You shall speak to the children of Israel, saying, If a man die, and have no son, then you shall cause his inheritance to pass to his daughter.
NUM 27:9 If he have no daughter, then you shall give his inheritance to his brothers.
NUM 27:10 If he have no brothers, then you shall give his inheritance to his father's brothers.
NUM 27:11 If his father have no brothers, then you shall give his inheritance to his kinsman who is next to him of his family, and he shall possess it: and it shall be to the children of Israel a statute [and] ordinance, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
NUM 27:12 Yahweh said to Moses, Go up into this mountain of Abarim, and see the land which I have given to the children of Israel.
NUM 27:13 When you have seen it, you also shall be gathered to your people, as Aaron your brother was gathered;
NUM 27:14 because you rebelled against my word in the wilderness of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the waters before their eyes. (These are the waters of Meribah of Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.)
NUM 27:15 Moses spoke to Yahweh, saying,
NUM 27:16 Let Yahweh, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation,
NUM 27:17 who may go out before them, and who may come in before them, and who may lead them out, and who may bring them in; that the congregation of Yahweh not be as sheep which have no shepherd.
NUM 27:18 Yahweh said to Moses, Take Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the Spirit, and lay your hand on him;
NUM 27:19 and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight.
NUM 27:20 You shall put of your honor on him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may obey.
NUM 27:21 He shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall inquire for him by the judgment of the Urim before Yahweh: 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.
NUM 27:22 Moses did as Yahweh commanded him; and he took Joshua, and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation:
NUM 27:23 and he laid his hands on him, and gave him a charge, as Yahweh spoke by Moses.
