1 And the heads of the fathers of the families of the sons 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 chiefs, the heads of the fathers of the sons of Israel;

2 and they said, Jehovah commanded my lord to give the land for an inheritance by lot to the sons of Israel; and my lord was commanded by Jehovah to give the inheritance of Zelophehad our brother to his daughters.

3 And if they be for wives to one of the sons of the other tribes of the sons of Israel, then shall their inheritance be diminished from the inheritance of our fathers, and shall be added over the inheritance of the tribe to which they shall be; and it shall be diminished from the lot of our inheritance.

4 And if the jubilee of the sons of Israel shall be, then shall their inheritance be added over the inheritance of the tribe to which they shall be; and their inheritance shall diminish from the inheritance of the tribe of our fathers.

5 And Moses commanded the sons of Israel by the mouth of Jehovah, saying, The tribe of the sons of Joseph has spoken rightly.

6 This is the word which Jehovah commands for the daughters of Zelophehad, saying, Let them be for wives to whomever is good in their eyes; but surely to the family of the tribe of their father shall they be for wives.

7 And the inheritance of the sons of Israel shall not turn·​·around from tribe to tribe; for each·​·man of the sons of Israel shall stick to the inheritance of the tribe of his fathers.

8 And every daughter who possesses an inheritance from the tribes of the sons of Israel shall be for a wife to one of the family of the tribe of her father, so·​·that the sons of Israel may possess every man the inheritance of his fathers.

9 And the inheritance shall not turn·​·around from one tribe to another tribe; for each·​·man of the tribes of the sons of Israel shall stick to his own inheritance.

10 As Jehovah commanded Moses, so did the daughters of Zelophehad;

11 and Mahlah, Tirzah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Noah, the daughters of Zelophehad, were wives to the sons of their uncles.

12 they would be for wives of the families of the sons of Manasseh the son of Joseph, and their inheritance was in the tribe of the family of their father.

13 These are the commandments and the judgments, which Jehovah commanded by the hand of Moses to the sons of Israel in the deserts of Moab by Jordan near Jericho.

Explanation of Numbers 36      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-2. The man of the external church perceives from Divine Good by Divine Truth, that those who are in the affection of truth without truths receive an inheritance in the heavenly kingdom.

Verses 3-4. But he is in ignorance as to the truths relating to the conjunction of goodness with truth which is the heavenly marriage, and therefore seeks instruction.

Verses 5-13. In consequence of which he learns from Divine Truth, or the Word, that this conjunction is effected in freedom; and yet that every external affection is to be conjoined with its own internal, or with truths in harmony and agreement with itself.
