A Law of Inheritance

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 forward; and these are the names of his daughters: Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:2 - They stood before Moses, before Eleazar the priest, before the leaders, and all the congregation at the entrance of the tent of meeting, saying,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:3 - “Our father died in the wilderness, yet he was not among the group of those who gathered together against the LORD, in the group 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Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:4 - “Why should the name of our father be withdrawn from among his family simply because he had no son? Give us property among our father’s brothers.”
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:5 - So Moses brought their case before the LORD.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:6 - Then the LORD said to [fn]Moses,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:7 - “The daughters of Zelophehad are right about their statements. You shall certainly give them hereditary property among their father’s brothers, and you shall transfer the inheritance of their father 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 transfer his inheritance to his daughter.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:10 - ‘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 nearest relative in his own family, and he shall take possession of it; and it shall be a statutory ordinance to the sons of Israel, just as the LORD has commanded Moses.’”
(Deu 31:1–8 )
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:12 - Then the LORD 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 - “When you have seen it, you too will be gathered to your people, just 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 to treat Me as holy before their eyes at the water.” (These are the waters of Meribah of Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.)

Joshua to Succeed Moses

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:15 - Then Moses spoke to the LORD, saying,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:16 - “May the LORD, the God of the spirits of [fn]humanity, appoint a man over the congregation,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:17 - who will go out [fn]and come in before them, and lead them out and [fn]bring them in, so that the congregation of the LORD will not be like sheep that have no shepherd.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:20 - “And you shall put some of your [fn]authority on him, so that all the congregation of the sons of Israel will obey him.

At his [fn]command they shall go out, and at his [fn]command they shall come in, both he and all the sons of Israel with him, all the congregation.”
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:22 - Then Moses did just as the LORD commanded him; 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 the LORD had spoken [fn]through Moses.
