Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:1 - Then the daughters of Zelophehad son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh of the families of Manasseh, the son Joseph came forward. Now these are the names of his daughters: Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:2 - And they stood before Moses and Eleazar the priest and the leaders of the whole assembly at the entrance to the tent of meeting and said,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:3 - "Our father died in the wilderness, although he was not part of the company of those that gathered themselves together against the LORD in the company of Korah; but he died for his own sin, and he had no sons.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:4 - Why should the name of our father be lost from among his family because he had no son? Give us a possession among the relatives of our father."
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:5 - So Moses brought their case before the LORD.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:6 - The LORD said to Moses:
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:7 - "The daughters of Zelophehad have a valid claim. You must indeed give them possession of an inheritance among their father's relatives, and you must transfer the inheritance of their father to them.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:8 - And you must tell the Israelites, 'If a man dies and has no son, then you must transfer his inheritance to his daughter;
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:9 - and if he has no daughter, then you are to give his inheritance to his brothers;
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:10 - and if he has no brothers, then you are to give his inheritance to his father's brothers;
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:11 - and if his father has no brothers, then you are to give his inheritance to his relative nearest to him from his family, and he will possess it. This will be for the Israelites a legal requirement, as the LORD commanded Moses.'"
(Deu 31:1–8 )
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:12 - Then the LORD said to Moses, "Go up this mountain of the Abarim range, and see the land I have given to the Israelites.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:13 - When you have seen it, you will be gathered to your ancestors, as Aaron your brother was gathered to his ancestors.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:14 - For in the wilderness of Zin when the community rebelled against me, you rebelled against my command to show me as holy before their eyes over the water - the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin."

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:15 - Then Moses spoke to the LORD:
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:16 - "Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all humankind, appoint a man over the community,
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:17 - who will go out before them, and who will come in before them, and who will lead them out, and who will bring them in, so that the community of the LORD may not be like sheep that have no shepherd."
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:18 - The LORD replied to Moses, "Take Joshua son of Nun, a man in whom is such a spirit, and lay your hand on him;

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:22 - So Moses did as the LORD commanded him; he took Joshua and set him before Eleazar the priest and before the whole community.
Unchecked Copy BoxNum 27:23 - He laid his hands on him and commissioned him, just as the LORD commanded, by the authority of Moses.
