View In My Bible
1 The heads of the fathers' [houses] of the family of the children of Gil`ad, the son of Makhir, the son of Menashsheh, of the families of the sons of Yosef, came near, and spoke before Moshe, and before the princes, the heads of the fathers' [houses] of the children of Yisra'el: 2 and they said, the LORD commanded my lord to give the land for inheritance by lot to the children of Yisra'el: and my lord was commanded by the LORD to give the inheritance of Tzelohchad our brother to his daughters. 3 If they be married to any of the sons of the [other] tribes of the children of Yisra'el, then will their inheritance be taken away from the inheritance of our fathers, and will be added to the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they shall belong: so will it be taken away from the lot of our inheritance. 4 When the jubilee of the children of Yisra'el shall be, then will their inheritance be added to the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they shall belong: so will their inheritance be taken away from the inheritance of the tribe of our fathers. 5 Moshe commanded the children of Yisra'el according to the word of the LORD, saying, The tribe of the sons of Yosef speaks right. 6 This is the thing which the LORD does command concerning the daughters of Tzelohchad, saying, Let them be married to whom they think best; only into the family of the tribe of their father shall they be married. 7 So shall no inheritance of the children of Yisra'el remove from tribe to tribe; for the children of Yisra'el shall cleave everyone to the inheritance of the tribe of his fathers. 8 Every daughter, who possesses an inheritance in any tribe of the children of Yisra'el, shall be wife to one of the family of the tribe of her father, that the children of Yisra'el may possess every man the inheritance of his fathers. 9 So shall no inheritance remove from one tribe to another tribe; for the tribes of the children of Yisra'el shall cleave everyone to his own inheritance. 10 Even as the LORD commanded Moshe, so did the daughters of Tzelohchad: 11 for Machlah, Tirtzah, and Hoglah, and Milkah, and Noach, the daughters of Tzelohchad, were married to their father's brothers' sons. 12 They were married into the families of the sons of Menashsheh the son of Yosef; and their inheritance remained in the tribe of the family of their father. 13 These are the mitzvot and the ordinances which the LORD commanded by Moshe to the children of Yisra'el in the plains of Mo'av by the Yarden at Yericho.
