Numbers 36: The Second Ruling For Zelophehad's Daughters
"This is the thing which the LORD doth command concerning the daughters of Zelophehad"
The question of the property rights of Zelophehad's daughters had already been asked. The answer provided two important precedents in law, ancient and modern. The LORD's inheritance legislation as stated in the Scriptures below has been used as the basis for many property laws, as well as succession rules of sovereign kings and queens, including that of Britain - although ironically (considering that it was originally created by the LORD to provide equal rights for women), the present-day liberal Satanic plague of "political correctness" tyranny has been slowly perverting and destroying those God-given rights for women.
"27:1 Then came 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: and these are the names of his daughters; Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah. 27:2 And they stood before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest, and before the princes and all the congregation, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying, 27:3 Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not in the company of them that gathered themselves together against the LORD in the company of Korah; but died in his own sin, and had no sons. 27:4 Why should the name of our father be done away from among his family, because he hath no son? Give unto us therefore a possession among the brethren of our father.
A little later, a clarification was requested regarding the earlier declaration. They "shalt surely give them a possession of an inheritance among their father's brethren; and thou shalt cause the inheritance of their father to pass unto them." But what if they later married outside of their own Israelite tribe?
"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 spake 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 unto his daughters. 36:3 And if they be married to any of the sons of the other tribes of the children of Israel, then shall their inheritance be taken from the inheritance of our fathers, and shall be put to the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they are received: so shall it be taken from the lot of our inheritance. 36:4 And when the jubile of the children of Israel shall be, then shall their inheritance be put unto the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they are received: so shall their inheritance be taken away from the inheritance of the tribe of our fathers.
Fact Finder: Why are boundaries regarded as sacred to the LORD?
