The Daughters of Zelophehad

27One day a petition was presented by the daughters of Zelophehad—Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah. Their father, Zelophehad, was a descendant of Hepher son of Gilead, son of Makir, son of Manasseh, son of Joseph.H7126H1323H6765H1121H2660H1121H1568H1121H4353H1121H4519H4940H4519H1121H3130H8034H1323H4244H5270H2295H4435H8656 2These women stood before Moses, Eleazar the priest, the tribal leaders, and the entire community at the entrance of the Tabernacle.H5975H6440H4872H6440H499H3548H6440H5387H5712H6607H168H4150H559 3"Our father died in the wilderness," they said. "He was not among Korah's followers, who rebelled against the LORD; he died because of his own sin. But he had no sons.H1H4191H4057H8432H5712H3259H3068H5712H7141H4191H2399H1121 4Why should the name of our father disappear from his clan just because he had no sons? Give us property along with the rest of our relatives."H8034H1H1639H8432H4940H1121H5414H272H8432H251H1 5So Moses brought their case before the LORD.H4872H7126H4941H6440H3068 6And the LORD replied to Moses,H3068H559H4872H559 7"The claim of the daughters of Zelophehad is legitimate. You must give them a grant of land along with their father's relatives. Assign them the property that would have been given to their father.H1323H6765H1696H3651H5414H5414H272H5159H8432H1H251H5159H1H5674 8"And give the following instructions to the people of Israel: If a man dies and has no son, then give his inheritance to his daughters.H1696H1121H3478H559H376H4191H1121H5159H5674H1323 9And if he has no daughter either, transfer his inheritance to his brothers.H1323H5414H5159H251 10If he has no brothers, give his inheritance to his father's brothers.H251H5414H5159H1H251 11But if his father has no brothers, give his inheritance to the nearest relative in his clan. This is a legal requirement for the people of Israel, just as the LORD commanded Moses."H1H251H5414H5159H7607H7138H4940H3423H1121H3478H2708H4941H3068H6680H4872

Joshua Chosen to Lead Israel

12One day the LORD said to Moses, "Climb one of the mountains east of the river, and look out over the land I have given the people of Israel.H3068H559H4872H5927H2022H5682H7200H776H5414H1121H3478 13After you have seen it, you will die like your brother, Aaron,H7200H622H5971H175H251H622 14for you both rebelled against my instructions in the wilderness of Zin. When the people of Israel rebelled, you failed to demonstrate my holiness to them at the waters." (These are the waters of Meribah at Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.)H4784H6310H4057H6790H4808H5712H6942H4325H5869H4325H4809H6946H4057H6790 15Then Moses said to the LORD,H4872H1696H3068H559 16"O LORD, you are the God who gives breath to all creatures. Please appoint a new man as leader for the community.H3068H430H7307H1320H6485H376H5712 17Give them someone who will guide them wherever they go and will lead them into battle, so the community of the LORD will not be like sheep without a shepherd."H3318H6440H935H6440H3318H935H5712H3068H6629H7462 18The LORD replied, "Take Joshua son of Nun, who has the Spirit in him, and lay your hands on him.H3068H559H4872H3947H3091H1121H5126H376H7307H5564H3027 19Present him to Eleazar the priest before the whole community, and publicly commission him to lead the people.H5975H6440H499H3548H6440H5712H6680H5869 20Transfer some of your authority to him so the whole community of Israel will obey him.H5414H1935H5712H1121H3478H8085 21When direction from the LORD is needed, Joshua will stand before Eleazar the priest, who will use the Urim—one of the sacred lots cast before the LORD—to determine his will. This is how Joshua and the rest of the community of Israel will determine everything they should do."H5975H6440H499H3548H7592H4941H224H6440H3068H6310H3318H6310H935H1121H3478H5712 22So Moses did as the LORD commanded. He presented Joshua to Eleazar the priest and the whole community.H4872H6213H3068H6680H3947H3091H5975H6440H499H3548H6440H5712 23Moses laid his hands on him and commissioned him to lead the people, just as the LORD had commanded through Moses.H5564H3027H6680H3068H1696H3027H4872
