Nm 27:1Then 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.

Nm 27:2And they stood before Moses and before Eleazar the priest and before the leaders and the whole assembly at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, saying,

Nm 27:3Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not among the company of those who gathered themselves together against Jehovah in the company of Korah; but he died in his own sin, and he had no sons.

Nm 27:4Why should our father’s name be taken away from among his family because he had no son? Give us a possession among our father’s brothers.

Nm 27:5And Moses brought their case before Jehovah.

Nm 27:6Then Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

Nm 27:7The daughters of Zelophehad speak rightly. You shall surely give them the possession of an inheritance among their father’s brothers; and you shall cause the inheritance of their father to pass to them.

Nm 27:8And you shall speak to the children of Israel, saying, If a man dies and has no son, then you shall cause his inheritance to pass to his daughter.

Nm 27:9And if he does not have a daughter, then you shall give his inheritance to his brothers.

Nm 27:10And if he has no brothers, then you shall give his inheritance to his father’s brothers.

Nm 27:11And if his father has no brothers, then you shall give his inheritance to his relative nearest to him among his family, and he shall possess it. And it shall be a statute of judgment for the children of Israel, as Jehovah commanded Moses.

Nm 27:12And Jehovah said to Moses, Go up to this mountain of the Abarim and see the land which I have given to the children of Israel.

Nm 27:13And when you have seen it, you also shall be gathered to your people, just as Aaron your brother was gathered,

Nm 27:14Because you rebelled against My word in the wilderness of Zin, in the strife of the assembly, and failed to sanctify Me at the waters before their eyes. (These are the waters of Meribah-kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin.)

Nm 27:15And Moses spoke to Jehovah, saying,

Nm 27:16Let Jehovah, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the assembly,

Nm 27:17Who 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 assembly of Jehovah will not be like sheep which have no shepherd.

Nm 27:18And Jehovah said to Moses, Take Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the Spirit, and lay your hand upon him;

Nm 27:19And set him before Eleazar the priest and before the whole assembly, and give him a charge in their sight.

Nm 27:20And you shall put some of your honor upon him, so that the whole assembly of the children of Israel may obey him.

Nm 27:21And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, and he shall inquire for him by the judgment of the Urim before Jehovah. 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 the whole assembly.

Nm 27:22And Moses did as Jehovah commanded him, and he took Joshua and set him before Eleazar the priest and before the whole assembly.

Nm 27:23And he laid his hands upon him and gave him a charge just as Jehovah had spoken through Moses.
