36Then the heads of the clans of Gilead—descendants of Makir, son of Manasseh, son of Joseph—came to Moses and the family leaders of Israel with a petition.H7218H1H4940H1121H1568H1121H4353H1121H4519H4940H1121H3130H7126H1696H6440H4872H6440H5387H7218H1H1121H3478 2They said, "Sir, the LORD instructed you to divide the land by sacred lot among the people of Israel. You were told by the LORD to give the grant of land owned by our brother Zelophehad to his daughters.H559H3068H6680H113H5414H776H5159H1486H1121H3478H113H6680H3068H5414H5159H6765H251H1323 3But if they marry men from another tribe, their grants of land will go with them to the tribe into which they marry. In this way, the total area of our tribal land will be reduced.H802H259H1121H7626H1121H3478H5159H1639H5159H1H3254H5159H4294H1639H1486H5159 4Then when the Year of Jubilee comes, their portion of land will be added to that of the new tribe, causing it to be lost forever to our ancestral tribe."H3104H1121H3478H5159H3254H5159H4294H5159H1639H5159H4294H1 5So Moses gave the Israelites this command from the LORD: "The claim of the men of the tribe of Joseph is legitimate.H4872H6680H1121H3478H6310H3068H559H4294H1121H3130H1696 6This is what the LORD commands concerning the daughters of Zelophehad: Let them marry anyone they like, as long as it is within their own ancestral tribe.H1697H3068H6680H1323H6765H559H802H5869H2896H4940H4294H1H802 7None of the territorial land may pass from tribe to tribe, for all the land given to each tribe must remain within the tribe to which it was first allotted.H5159H1121H3478H5437H4294H4294H376H1121H3478H1692H5159H4294H1 8The daughters throughout the tribes of Israel who are in line to inherit property must marry within their tribe, so that all the Israelites will keep their ancestral property.H1323H3423H5159H4294H1121H3478H802H259H4940H4294H1H1121H3478H3423H376H5159H1 9No grant of land may pass from one tribe to another; each tribe of Israel must keep its allotted portion of land."H5159H5437H4294H312H4294H376H4294H1121H3478H1692H5159 10The daughters of Zelophehad did as the LORD commanded Moses.H3068H6680H4872H6213H1323H6765 11Mahlah, Tirzah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Noah all married cousins on their father's side.H4244H8656H2295H4435H5270H1323H6765H802H1730H1121 12They married into the clans of Manasseh son of Joseph. Thus, their inheritance of land remained within their ancestral tribe.H802H4940H1121H4519H1121H3130H5159H4294H4940H1 13These are the commands and regulations that the LORD gave to the people of Israel through Moses while they were camped on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River across from Jericho.H4687H4941H3068H6680H3027H4872H1121H3478H6160H4124H3383H3405
