3 "Our father died in the desert. He was not a part of Korah's followers who joined forces against the LORD. He died for his own sin and left 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 should our father's name be allowed to die out in his family because he had no son? Give us property among our father's relatives." 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 brought their case to the LORD, 5 So Moses brought their case before the LORD
6 and the LORD said to him, 6 and the LORD said to him,
7 "Zelophehad's daughters are right. You must give them property of their own among their father's relatives.

You must certainly give them property as an inheritance among their father's relatives and turn their father's inheritance over to them.
8 "Tell the Israelites: If a man dies and leaves no sons, turn his property over to his daughters. 8 "Say to the Israelites, 'If a man dies and leaves no son, turn his inheritance over to his daughter.
9 If he has no daughters, give his property to his brothers. 9 If he has no daughter, give his inheritance to his brothers.
10 If he has no brothers, give his property to his uncles on his father's side of the family. 10 If he has no brothers, give his inheritance to his father's brothers.
11 If he has no uncles, give his property to the nearest relative in his family, and that relative will take possession of it. This will be a rule for the Israelites, as the LORD commanded 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 The LORD said to Moses, "Go up into the Abarim Mountains, and take a look at the land I will give the Israelites. 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 After you see it, you, too, will join your ancestors [in death], as your brother Aaron did. 13 After you have seen it, you too will be gathered to your people, as your brother Aaron was,
14 You both rebelled against my command in the Desert of Zin. You didn't show the people how holy I am when they were complaining at the oasis." (This was the oasis of Meribah at Kadesh in the Desert 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 Moses said to the LORD, 15 Moses said to the LORD,
16 "LORD, you are the God who gives the breath of life to everyone. Please appoint someone over the community 16 "May the LORD, the God of the spirits of all mankind, appoint a man over this community
17 who will lead them in and out [of battle] so that the LORD's community will not be like sheep without a shepherd." 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 So the LORD said to Moses, "Take Joshua, son of Nun, a man who has the Spirit, and place 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 Make him stand in front of the priest Eleazar and the whole community, and give him his instructions in their presence. 19 Have him stand before Eleazar the priest and the entire assembly and commission him in their presence.
20 Give him some of your authority so that the whole community of Israel will obey him. 20 Give him some of your authority so the whole Israelite community will obey him.
21 He will stand in front of the priest Eleazar, who will use the Urim to make decisions in the LORD's presence. At his command Joshua and the whole community of Israel will go into battle. And at his command they will return." 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 Moses did as the LORD commanded him. He took Joshua and made him stand in front of the priest Eleazar and the whole community. 22 Moses did as the LORD commanded him. He took Joshua and had him stand before Eleazar the priest and the whole assembly.
23 Moses placed his hands on Joshua and gave him his instructions as the LORD had told him. 23 Then he laid his hands on him and commissioned him, as the LORD instructed through Moses.
