Numbers 27:1-23, NLT
The Daughters of Zelophehad
1One day a petition was presented by the daughters of Zelophehad—Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah. Their father, Zelophehad, was a descendant of Hepher son of Gilead, son of Makir, son of Manasseh, son of Joseph.
5So Moses brought their case before the Lord.
8“And give the following instructions to the people of Israel: If a man dies and has no son, then give his inheritance to his daughters.
Joshua Chosen to Lead Israel

15Then Moses said to the Lord,
18The Lord replied, “Take Joshua son of Nun, who has the Spirit in him, and lay your hands on him.
22So Moses did as the Lord commanded. He presented Joshua to Eleazar the priest and the whole community.
