Numbers 27

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 assembled themselves 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 to us [therefore] a
 possession among the brethren of our father.
27:5 And Moses brought their cause before the LORD.
27:6 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
27:7 The daughters of Zelophehad speak [what is] right: thou
 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 to them.
27:8 And thou shalt speak to the children of Israel, saying, If
 a man shall die, and have no son, then ye shall cause his
 inheritance to pass to his daughter.
27:9 And if he shall have no daughter, then ye shall give his
 inheritance to his brethren.
27:10 And if he shall have no brethren, then ye shall give his
 inheritance to his father's brethren.
27:11 And if his father shall have no brethren, then ye shall
 give inheritance to his kinsman that is next to him of his
 family, and he shall possess it: and it shall be to the
 children of Israel a statute of judgment, as the LORD commanded
27:12 And the LORD said to Moses, Ascend this mount Abarim, and
 see the land which I have given to the children of Israel.
27:13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered to
 thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered.
27:14 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of
 Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the
 water before their eyes: that [is] the water of Meribah in
 Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.
27:15 And Moses spoke to the LORD, saying,
27:16 Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a
 man over the congregation.
27:17 Who may go out before them, and who may go in before them,
 and who may lead them out, and who may bring them in; that the
 congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no
27:18 And the LORD said to Moses, Take to thee Joshua the son of
 Nun, a man in whom [is] the spirit, and lay thy hand upon him;
27:19 And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the
 congregation: and give him a charge in their sight.
27:20 And thou shalt put [some] of thy honor upon him, that all
 the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient.
27:21 And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall
 ask [counsel] for him after the judgment of Urim before the
 LORD: at his word shall they go out, and at his word they shall
 come in, [both] he, and all the children of Israel with him,
 even all the congregation.
27:22 And Moses did as the LORD commanded him: and he took
 Joshua, and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all
 the congregation:
27:23 And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge, as
 the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.
