1 Then came the daughters of Salphaad, the son of Hepher, the son of Galaad, the son of Machir, the son of Manasses, who was the son of Joseph: and their names are Maala, and Noa, and Hegla, and Melcha, and Thersa. 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 And they stood before Moses and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the people at the door of the tabernacle of the covenant, 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 Our father died in the desert, and was not in the sedition, that was raised against the Lord under Core, but he died in his own sin: and he had no male children. Why is his name taken away out of his family, because he had no son? Give us a possession among the kinsmen of our father. 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 And Moses referred their cause to the judgment of the Lord. 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 And the Lord said to him: 5 So Moses brought their case before the LORD
6 The daughters of Salphaad demand a just thing: Give them a possession among their father’s kindred, and let them succeed him in his inheritance. 6 and the LORD said to him,
7 And to the children of Israel thou shalt speak these things: 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 When a man dieth without a son, his inheritance shall pass to his daughter. 8 "Say to the Israelites, 'If a man dies and leaves no son, turn his inheritance over to his daughter.
9 If he have no daughter, his brethren shall succeed him. 9 If he has no daughter, give his inheritance to his brothers.
10 And if he have no brethren, you shall give the inheritance to his father’s brethren. 10 If he has no brothers, give his inheritance to his father's brothers.
11 But if he have no uncles by the father, the inheritance shall be given to them that are the next akin. And this shall be to the children of Israel sacred by a perpetual law, as the Lord hath 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 also said to Moses: Go up into this mountain Abarim, and view from thence the land which I will give 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 thou shalt have seen it, thou also shalt go to thy people, as thy brother Aaron is gone: 13 After you have seen it, you too will be gathered to your people, as your brother Aaron was,
14 Because you offended me in the desert of Sin in the contradiction of the multitude, neither would you sanctify me before them at the waters. These are the waters of contradiction in Cades of the desert of Sin. 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 And Moses answered him: 15 Moses said to the LORD,
16 May the Lord the God of the spirits of all flesh provide a man, that may be over this multitude: 16 "May the LORD, the God of the spirits of all mankind, appoint a man over this community
17 And may go out and in before them, and may lead them out, or bring them in: lest the people of the Lord be as 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 And the Lord said to him: take Josue the son of Nun, a man in whom is the Spirit, and put thy hand upon 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 he shall stand before Eleazar the priest and all the multitude: 19 Have him stand before Eleazar the priest and the entire assembly and commission him in their presence.
20 And thou shalt give him precepts in the sight of all, and part of thy glory, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may hear him. 20 Give him some of your authority so the whole Israelite community will obey him.
21 If any thing be to be done, Eleazar the priest shall consult the Lord for him. He and all the children of Israel with him, and the rest of the multitude shall go out and go in at his word. 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 had commanded. And, when he had taken Josue, he set him before Eleazar the priest, and all the assembly 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 laying his hands on his head, he repeated all things that the Lord had commanded. 23 Then he laid his hands on him and commissioned him, as the LORD instructed through Moses.
