The Daughters of Zelophehad

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:1 -

Then 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, came near; and these are the names of his daughters: Mahlah, Noah and Hoglah and Milcah and Tirzah.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:2 - And they stood before Moses and before Eleazar the priest and before the leaders and all the congregation, at the doorway of the tent of meeting, saying,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:3 - “Our father died in the wilderness, yet he was not among the congregation of those who gathered themselves together against Yahweh in the congregation of Korah; but he died in his own sin, and he had no sons.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:4 - “Why should the name of our father be withdrawn from among his family because he had no son? Give us a possession among our father’s brothers.”
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:5 - So Moses brought their case near before Yahweh.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:6 -

Then Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:7 - “The daughters of Zelophehad are right in their statements. You shall surely give them a possession for an inheritance among their father’s brothers, and you shall have the inheritance of their father pass on to them.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:8 - “Further, you shall speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘If a man dies and has no son, then you shall have his inheritance pass on to his daughter.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:9 - ‘And if he has no daughter, then you shall give his inheritance to his brothers.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:10 - ‘And if he has no brothers, then you shall give his inheritance to his father’s brothers.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:11 - ‘And if his father has no brothers, then you shall give his inheritance to his blood relative in his own family, and he shall possess it; and it shall be a statutory judgment to the sons of Israel, just as Yahweh commanded Moses.’”
(Deu 31:1–8 )
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:12 -

Then Yahweh said to Moses, “Go up to this mountain of Abarim, and see the land which I have given to the sons of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:13 - “So when you have seen it, you too will be gathered to your people, as Aaron your brother [fn]was,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:14 - for in the wilderness of Zin, during the strife of the congregation, you rebelled against My [fn]command [fn]to treat Me as holy before their eyes at the water.” (These are the waters of Meribah of Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.)

Moses Commissions Joshua

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:15 -

Then Moses spoke to Yahweh, saying,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:16 - “May Yahweh, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:17 - who will go out [fn]and come in before them, and who will lead them out and [fn]bring them in, so that the congregation of Yahweh will not be like sheep which have no shepherd.”
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:18 - So Yahweh said to Moses, “[fn]Take Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the Spirit, and lay your hand on him;
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:19 - and have him stand before Eleazar the priest and before all the congregation, and commission him in their sight.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:20 - “And you shall put some of your [fn]splendor on him, in order that all the congregation of the sons of Israel may obey him.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:21 - “Moreover, he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall inquire for him by the judgment of the Urim before Yahweh. At his [fn]command they shall go out, and at his [fn]command they shall come in, both he and the sons of Israel with him, even all the congregation.”
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:22 - So Moses did just as Yahweh commanded him; and he took Joshua and had him stand before Eleazar the priest and before all the congregation.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:23 - Then he laid his hands on him and commissioned him, just as Yahweh had spoken by the hand of Moses.
