A Law of Inheritance

1 Then the R799 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 R800 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 died R801 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in the company of Korah; but he died in his own sin, and he R802 had no sons. 4 "Why should the name of our father be withdrawn from among his family because he had no son?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 So R803 Moses brought their case before the LORD.

6 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 7 "The R804 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 statutory R805 ordinance to the sons of Israel, just as the LORD commanded Moses.' "

12 Then R806 the LORD said to Moses, "Go up to this mountain R807 of Abarim, and see the land which I have given to the sons of Israel. 13 "When you have seen it, you too will R808 be gathered to your people, as R809 Aaron your brother was; F399 14 for in the wilderness of Zin, during the strife of the congregation, you R810 rebelled against My command F400 to F401 treat Me as holy before their eyes at the water." (These are the waters of Meribah of Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.)

Joshua to Succeed Moses

15 Then Moses spoke to the LORD, saying, 16 "May R811 the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation, 17 who will R812 go out and F402 come in before them, and who will lead them out and bring F403 them in, so that the congregation of the LORD will not be like R813 sheep which have no shepherd." 18 So the LORD said to Moses, "Take F404 Joshua the son of Nun, a man in R814 whom is the Spirit, and lay R815 your hand on him; 19 and have him stand before Eleazar the priest and before all the congregation, and commission R816 him in their sight. 20 "You shall put some of your authority F405 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 by R817 the judgment of the Urim before the LORD. At his command F406 they shall go out and at his command F406 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 commissioned R818 him, just as the LORD had spoken through F407 Moses.
