Numbers 27


Num 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.
Num 27:2 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,
Num 27:3 "Our father died in the wilderness, yet he was not among the company of those who gathered themselves together against the Lord 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Num 27:4 Why should the name of our father be withdrawn from among his family because he had no son? Give us a possession among our father's brothers."
Num 27:5 So Moses brought their case before the Lord.
Num 27:6 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
Num 27:7 "The daughters of Zelophehad are right in their statements. You shall surely give them a hereditary possession among their father's brothers, and you shall transfer the inheritance of their father to them.
Num 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.
Num 27:9 If he has no daughter, then you shall give his inheritance to his brothers.
Num 27:10 If he has no brothers, then you shall give his inheritance to his father's brothers.
Num 27:11 If his father has no brothers, then you shall give his inheritance to his nearest relative in his own family, and he shall possess it; and it shall be a statutory ordinance to the sons of Israel, just as the Lord commanded Moses.'"
Num 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.
Num 27:13 When you have seen it, you too will be gathered to your people, as Aaron your brother was;
Num 27:14 for in the wilderness of Zin, during the strife of the congregation, you rebelled against My 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.)
Num 27:15 Then Moses spoke to the Lord, saying,
Num 27:16 "May the Lord, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation,
Num 27:17 who will go out and come in before them, and who will lead them out and bring them in, so that the congregation of the Lord will not be like sheep which have no shepherd."
Num 27:18 So the Lord 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 have him stand before Eleazar the priest and before all the congregation, and commission him in their sight.
Num 27:20 You shall put some of your authority on him, in order that all the congregation of the sons of Israel may obey him.
Num 27:21 Moreover, he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall inquire for him by the judgment of the Urim before the Lord. At his command they shall go out and at his command they shall come in, both he and the sons of Israel with him, even all the congregation."
Num 27:22 Moses did just as the Lord commanded him; and he took Joshua and set him before Eleazar the priest and before all the congregation.
Num 27:23 Then he laid his hands on him and commissioned him, just as the Lord had spoken through Moses.
