Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO NUMBERS 36\\

This chapter gives an account of an application made by the heads of
the tribe of Manasseh, concerning the inheritances of the daughters of
Zelophehad, which, should they marry into other tribes, would be
removed thither, and so be a loss to theirs, \\#Nu 36:1-4\\, which case
was judged worthy of regard; and to remedy this inconvenience, they
were ordered to marry into the family of their father's tribe, and this
was to be a law to all heiresses for the future in other tribes,
\\#Nu 36:5-9\\ and accordingly the daughters of Zelophehad married their
father's brothers' sons, \\#Nu 36:10-13\\.
