A Law of Inheritance
1 Then athe 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 bthe names° of his daughters°: Mahlah°, Noah° and Hoglah° and Milcah° and Tirzah°. 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°, 3 “Our father° adied° 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the company° of Korah°; but he died° in his own sin°, and bhe had° no° sons°. 4 Why° should the name° of our father° be withdrawn° from among° his family° because° he had° no° son°?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°.” 5 aSo Moses° brought° their case° before° the LORD°.
6 ¶ Then the LORD° spoke° to Moses°, saying°, 7 “aThe 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. 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°. 9 If° he has° no° daughter°, then you shall give° his inheritance° to his brothers°. 10 If° he has° no° brothers°, then you shall give° his inheritance° to his father’s° brothers°. 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 astatutory° ordinance° to the sons° of Israel°, just° as the LORD° commanded° Moses°.’”
12 ¶ aThen the LORD° said° to Moses°, “Go° up to this° bmountain° of Abarim°, and see° the land° which° I have given° to the sons° of Israel°. 13 When you have seen° it, you too° awill be gathered° to your people°, bas Aaron° your brother° Iwas; 14 for in the wilderness° of Zin°, during the strife° of the congregation°, ayou rebelled° against° My Icommand° IIto treat° Me as holy° before° their eyes° at the water°.” (These° are the waters° of Meribah° of Kadesh° in the wilderness° of Zin°.)

15 ¶ Then Moses° spoke° to the LORD°, saying°, 16 “aMay the LORD°, the God° of the spirits° of all° flesh°, appoint° a man° over° the congregation°, 17 who° awill go° out Iand come° in before° them, and who° will lead° them out and IIbring° them in, so that the congregation° of the LORD° will not be blike sheep° which° have° no° shepherd°.” 18 So the LORD° said° to Moses°, “ITake° Joshua° the son° of Nun°, a man° ain whom° is the Spirit°, and blay° your hand° on him; 19 and have him stand° before° Eleazar° the priest° and before° all° the congregation°, and acommission° him in their sight°. 20 You shall put° some° of your Iauthority° on him, in order° that all° the congregation° of the sons° of Israel° may obey° [him]. 21 Moreover, he shall stand° before° Eleazar° the priest°, who shall inquire° for him aby the judgment° of the Urim° before° the LORD°. At his Icommand° they shall go° out and at his Icommand° they shall come° in, [both] he and the sons° of Israel° with him, even all° the congregation°.” 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°. 23 Then he laid° his hands° on him and acommissioned° him, just° as the LORD° had spoken° Ithrough° Moses°.
