Numbers 27:1-8 English Standard Version (ESV)

The Daughters of Zelophehad

27 Then drew near the daughters of Zelophehad the son of Hepher, son of Gilead, son of Machir, son of Manasseh, from the clans of Manasseh the son of Joseph. The names of his daughters were: Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah. And they stood before Moses and before Eleazar the priest and before the chiefs and all the congregation, at the entrance of the tent of meeting, saying, “Our father died in the wilderness. He was not among the company of those who gathered themselves together against the Lord in the company of Korah, but died for his own sin. And he had no sons. Why should the name of our father be taken away from his clan because he had no son? Give to us a possession among our father's brothers.”

Moses brought their case before the Lord. And the Lord said to Moses, “The daughters of Zelophehad are right. You shall give them possession of an inheritance among their father's brothers and transfer the inheritance of their father to them. And you shall speak to the people of Israel, saying, ‘If a man dies and has no son, then you shall transfer his inheritance to his daughter.

Bamidbar 27:1-8 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

27 Then came the Banot Tzelophechad Ben Chepher Ben Gil‘ad Ben Machir Ben Menasheh, of the Mishpekhot Menasheh Ben Yosef: and these are the shmot of his banot: Machlah, No’ah, and Choglah, and Milcah, and Tirtzah.

And they stood before Moshe, and before Eleazar HaKohen, and before the Nasiim and kol HaEdah, by the petach Ohel Mo’ed, saying,

Avinu died in the midbar, and he was not in the edah hano’adim (assembly of ones banding together) against Hashem in the Adat Korach; but died in his own chet, and had no banim.

Why should the shem avinu be withdrawn [see Rv 3:5 OJBC] from among his Mishpakhat, because he hath no ben? Give unto us therefore achuzzah among the achei avinu.

And Moshe brought their mishpat before Hashem.

And Hashem spoke unto Moshe, saying,

The Banot Tzelophechad speak right; thou shalt surely give them achuzzat nachalah among achei avihem; and thou shalt cause the nachalat avichen to pass over unto them.

And thou shalt speak unto the Bnei Yisroel, saying, If an ish die, and have no ben, then ye shall cause his nachalah to pass over unto his bat.
