Chapter 36

Yes Word (Tyndale-Modern English)

Compare

      And the ancient heads of the children of Galaad the son of Machir the son of Manasse of the kindred of the children of Joseph, came forth and spake before Moses and the princes which were ancient heads among the children of Israel and said: The Lord commanded my lord to give the land to inherit by lot to the children of Israel. And then my lord commanded in the name of the Lord to give the inheritance of Zelaphead our brother unto his daughters. Now when any of the sons of the tribes of Israel take them to wives, then shall their inheritance be taken from the inheritance of our fathers, and shall be put unto the inheritance of the tribe in which they are and shall be taken from the lot of our inheritance. And when the year of jubilee cometh unto the children of Israel, then shall their inheritance be put unto the inheritance of the tribe where in they are, and so shall their inheritance be taken away from the inheritance of the tribe of our fathers.
      And Moses commanded the children of Israel at the mouth of the Lord saying: the tribe of the children of Joseph have said well. This therefore doth the Lord command the daughters of Zelaphead saying: let them be wives to whom they themself think best, but in the kindred of the tribe of their fathers shall they marry, that the inheritance of the children of Israel roll not from tribe to tribe. But that the children of Israel may abide, every man in the inheritance of the tribe of his fathers. And every daughter that possesseth any inheritance among the tribes of the children of Israel, shall be wife unto one of the kindred of the tribe of her father, that the children of Israel may enjoy every man the inheritance of his father, and that the inheritance go not from one tribe to another: but that the tribes of the children of Israel, may abide every man in his own inheritance.
      And as the Lord commanded Moses even so did the daughters of Zelaphead: Mahela, Thirza, Hagla, Milcha and Noa, and were married unto their fathers brothers sons, of the kindred of the children of Manasse the son of Joseph: and so they had their inheritance in the tribe of the kindred of their father.
      These are the commandments and laws which the Lord commanded through Moses, unto the children of Israel in the fields of Moab upon Jordan nigh unto Jericho.
