1 Then the 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 forward: their names are Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah. 1 The daughters of Zelophehad son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Makir, the son of Manasseh, belonged to the clans of Manasseh son of Joseph. The names of the daughters were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah and Tirzah. They approached
2 They came before Moses and Eleazar the priest and the chiefs and all the people at the door of the Tent of meeting, and said, 2 the entrance to the Tent of Meeting and stood before Moses, Eleazar the priest, the leaders and the whole assembly, and said,
3 Death overtook our father in the waste land; he was not among those who were banded together with Korah against the Lord; but death came to him in his sin; and he had no sons. 3 "Our father died in the desert. He was not among Korah's followers, who banded together against the LORD, but he died for his own sin and left no sons.
4 Why is the name of our father to be taken away from among his family, because he had no son? Give us a heritage among our father's brothers. 4 Why should our father's name disappear from his clan because he had no son? Give us property among our father's relatives."
5 So Moses put their cause before the Lord. 5 So Moses brought their case before the LORD
6 And the Lord said to Moses, 6 and the LORD said to him,
7 What the daughters of Zelophehad say is right: certainly you are to give them a heritage among their father's brothers: and let the property which would have been their father's go to them. 7 "What Zelophehad's daughters are saying is right. You must certainly give them property as an inheritance among their father's relatives and turn their father's inheritance over to them.
8 And say to the children of Israel, If a man has no son at the time of his death, let his heritage go to his daughter. 8 "Say to the Israelites, 'If a man dies and leaves no son, turn his inheritance over to his daughter.
9 And if he has no daughter, then give his heritage to his brothers. 9 If he has no daughter, give his inheritance to his brothers.
10 And if he has no brothers, then give his heritage to his father's brothers. 10 If he has no brothers, give his inheritance to his father's brothers.
11 And if his father has no brothers, then give it to his nearest relation in the family, as his heritage: this is to be a decision made by law for the children of Israel, as the Lord gave orders to Moses. 11 If his father had no brothers, give his inheritance to the nearest relative in his clan, that he may possess it. This is to be a legal requirement for the Israelites, as the LORD commanded Moses.' "
12 And the Lord said to Moses, Go up into this mountain of Abarim so that you may see the land which I have given to the children of Israel. 12 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Go up this mountain in the Abarim range and see the land I have given the Israelites.
13 And when you have seen it, you will be put to rest with your people, as your brother Aaron was: 13 After you have seen it, you too will be gathered to your people, as your brother Aaron was,
14 Because in the waste land of Zin, when the people were angry, you and he went against my word and did not keep my name holy before their eyes, at the waters. (These are the waters of Meribah in Kadesh in the waste land of Zin.) 14 for when the community rebelled at the waters in the Desert of Zin, both of you disobeyed my command to honor me as holy before their eyes." (These were the waters of Meribah Kadesh, in the Desert of Zin.)
15 Then Moses said to the Lord, 15 Moses said to the LORD,
16 Let the Lord, the God of the spirits of all flesh, put a man at the head of this people, 16 "May the LORD, the God of the spirits of all mankind, appoint a man over this community
17 To go out and come in before them and be their guide; so that the people of the Lord may not be like sheep without a keeper. 17 to go out and come in before them, one who will lead them out and bring them in, so the LORD's people will not be like sheep without a shepherd."
18 And the Lord said to Moses, Take Joshua, the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and put your hand on him; 18 So the LORD said to Moses, "Take Joshua son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay your hand on him.
19 And take him before Eleazar the priest and all the meeting of the people, and give him his orders before their eyes. 19 Have him stand before Eleazar the priest and the entire assembly and commission him in their presence.
20 And put your honour on him, so that all the children of Israel may be under his authority. 20 Give him some of your authority so the whole Israelite community will obey him.
21 He will take his place before Eleazar the priest, so that he may get directions from the Lord for him, with the Urim: at his word they will go out, and at his word they will come in, he and all the children of Israel. 21 He is to stand before Eleazar the priest, who will obtain decisions for him by inquiring of the Urim before the LORD. At his command he and the entire community of the Israelites will go out, and at his command they will come in."
22 So Moses did as the Lord said: he took Joshua and put him before Eleazar the priest and the meeting of the people: 22 Moses did as the LORD commanded him. He took Joshua and had him stand before Eleazar the priest and the whole assembly.
23 And he put his hands on him and gave him his orders, as the Lord had said by Moses. 23 Then he laid his hands on him and commissioned him, as the LORD instructed through Moses.
