Numbers 36:6-9

Context
36:6 This is what 1  the Lord has commanded for Zelophehad’s daughters: ‘Let them marry 2  whomever they think best, 3  only they must marry within the family of their father’s tribe. 36:7 In this way the inheritance of the Israelites will not be transferred 4  from tribe to tribe. But every one of the Israelites must retain the ancestral heritage. 36:8 And every daughter who possesses an inheritance from any of the tribes of the Israelites must become the wife of a man from any family in her father’s tribe, so that every Israelite 5  may retain the inheritance of his fathers. 36:9 No inheritance may pass from tribe to tribe. But every one of the tribes of the Israelites must retain its inheritance.”

1 tn Heb “the word that.”

2 tn The idiom again is “let them be for wives for….”

3 tn Heb “to the one who is good in their eyes.”

4 tn Heb “turned aside.”

5 tn The subject is “Israelites” and the verb is plural to agree with it, but the idea is collective as the word for “man” indicates: “so that the Israelites may possess – [each] man the inheritance of his fathers.”
