Numbers 36


36:1 And the chief fathers of the families of the children of
 Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families
 of the sons of Joseph, came near, and spoke before Moses, and
 before the princes, the chief fathers of the children of
 Israel:
36:2 And they said, The LORD commanded my lord to give the land
 for an inheritance by lot to the children of Israel: and my
 lord was commanded by the LORD to give the inheritance of
 Zelophehad our brother to his daughters.
36:3 And if they shall be married to any of the sons of the
 [other] tribes of the children of Israel, then will their
 inheritance be taken from the inheritance of our fathers, and
 will be put to the inheritance of the tribe into which they are
 received: so it will be taken from the lot of our inheritance.
36:4 And when the jubilee of the children of Israel shall be,
 then will their inheritance be put to the inheritance of the
 tribe into which they are received: so shall their inheritance
 be taken away from the inheritance of the tribe of our fathers.
36:5 And Moses commanded the children of Israel according to the
 word of the LORD, saying, The tribe of the sons of Joseph hath
 said well.
36:6 This [is] the thing which the LORD doth command concerning
 the daughters of Zelophehad, saying, Let them marry to whom
 they think best; only to the family of the tribe of their
 father shall they marry.
36:7 So shall not the inheritance of the children of Israel
 remove from tribe to tribe: for every one of the children of
 Israel shall keep himself to the inheritance of the tribe of
 his fathers.
36:8 And every daughter, that possesseth an inheritance in any
 tribe of the children of Israel, shall be wife to one of the
 family of the tribe of her father, that the children of Israel
 may enjoy every man the inheritance of his fathers.
36:9 Neither shall the inheritance remove from [one] tribe to
 another tribe; but every one of the tribes of the children of
 Israel shall keep himself to his own inheritance.
36:10 Even as the LORD commanded Moses, so did the daughters of
 Zelophehad:
36:11 For Mahlah, Tirzah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Noah, the
 daughters of Zelophehad, were married to their father's
 brothers' sons:
36:12 [And] they were married into the families of the sons of
 Manasseh the son of Joseph, and their inheritance remained in
 the tribe of the family of their father.
36:13 These [are] the commandments and the judgments, which the
 LORD commanded by the hand of Moses to the children of Israel
 in the plains of Moab by Jordan [near] Jericho.
