Numbers 27


1  Then came7126 the daughters1323 of Zelophehad,6765 the son1121 of Hepher,2660 the son1121 of Gilead,1568 the son1121 of Machir,4353 the son1121 of Manasseh,4519 of the families4940 of Manasseh4519 the son1121 of Joseph:3130 and these428 are the names8034 of his daughters;1323 Mahlah,4244 Noah,5270 and Hoglah,2295 and Milcah,4435 and Tirzah.8656

2  And they stood5975 before6440 Moses,4872 and before6440 Eleazar499 the priest,3548 and before6440 the princes5387 and all3605 the congregation,5712 by the door6607 of the tabernacle168 of the congregation,4150 saying,559

3  Our father1 died4191 in the wilderness,4057 and he1931 was1961 not3808 in8432 the company5712 of them that gathered themselves together3259 against5921 the LORD3068 in the company5712 of Korah;7141 but3588 died4191 in his own sin,2399 and had1961 no3808 sons.1121

4  Why4100 should the name8034 of our father1 be done away1639 from among4480 8432 his family,4940 because3588 he hath no369 son?1121 Give5414 unto us therefore a possession272 among8432 the brethren251 of our father.1

5  And Moses4872 brought7126 853 their cause4941 before6440 the LORD.3068

6  And the LORD3068 spoke559 unto413 Moses,4872 saying,559

7  The daughters1323 of Zelophehad6765 speak1696 right:3651 thou shalt surely give5414 5414 them a possession272 of an inheritance5159 among8432 their father's1 brethren;251 and thou shalt cause 853 the inheritance5159 of their father1 to pass5674 unto them.

8  And thou shalt speak1696 unto413 the children1121 of Israel,3478 saying,559 If3588 a man376 die,4191 and have no369 son,1121 then ye shall cause 853 his inheritance5159 to pass5674 unto his daughter.1323

9  And if518 he have no369 daughter,1323 then ye shall give5414 853 his inheritance5159 unto his brethren.251

10  And if518 he have no369 brethren,251 then ye shall give5414 853 his inheritance5159 unto his father's1 brethren.251

11  And if518 his father1 have no369 brethren,251 then ye shall give5414 853 his inheritance5159 unto his kinsman7607 that is next7138 to413 him of his family,4480 4940 and he shall possess3423 it: and it shall be1961 unto the children1121 of Israel3478 a statute2708 of judgment,4941 as834 the LORD3068 commanded6680 853 Moses.4872

12  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Get thee up5927 into413 this2088 mount2022 Abarim,5682 and see7200 853 the land776 which834 I have given5414 unto the children1121 of Israel.3478

13  And when thou hast seen7200 it, thou859 also1571 shalt be gathered622 unto413 thy people,5971 as834 Aaron175 thy brother251 was gathered.622

14  For834 ye rebelled against4784 my commandment6310 in the desert4057 of Zin,6790 in the strife4808 of the congregation,5712 to sanctify6942 me at the water4325 before their eyes:5869 that1992 is the water4325 of Meribah4809 in Kadesh6946 in the wilderness4057 of Zin.6790

15  And Moses4872 spoke1696 unto413 the LORD,3068 saying,559

16  Let the LORD,3068 the God430 of the spirits7307 of all3605 flesh,1320 set6485 a man376 over5921 the congregation,5712

17  Which834 may go out3318 before6440 them, and which834 may go in935 before6440 them, and which834 may lead them out,3318 and which834 may bring them in;935 that the congregation5712 of the LORD3068 be1961 not3808 as sheep6629 which834 have no369 shepherd.7462

18  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Take3947 thee 853 Joshua3091 the son1121 of Nun,5126 a man376 in whom834 is the spirit,7307 and lay5564 853 thine hand3027 upon5921 him;

19  And set5975 him before6440 Eleazar499 the priest,3548 and before6440 all3605 the congregation;5712 and give him a charge6680 853 in their sight.5869

20  And thou shalt put5414 some of thine honor4480 1935 upon5921 him, that4616 all3605 the congregation5712 of the children1121 of Israel3478 may be obedient.8085

21  And he shall stand5975 before6440 Eleazar499 the priest,3548 who shall ask7592 counsel for him after the judgment4941 of Urim224 before6440 the LORD:3068 at5921 his word6310 shall they go out,3318 and at5921 his word6310 they shall come in,935 both he,1931 and all3605 the children1121 of Israel3478 with854 him, even all3605 the congregation.5712

22  And Moses4872 did6213 as834 the LORD3068 commanded6680 him: and he took3947 853 Joshua,3091 and set5975 him before6440 Eleazar499 the priest,3548 and before6440 all3605 the congregation:5712

23  And he laid5564 853 his hands3027 upon5921 him, and gave him a charge,6680 as834 the LORD3068 commanded1696 by the hand3027 of Moses.4872


1 καὶ προσελθοῦσαι αἱ θυγατέρες Σαλπααδ υἱοῦ Οφερ υἱοῦ Γαλααδ υἱοῦ Μαχιρ τοῦ δήμου Μανασση τῶν υἱῶν Ιωσηφ καὶ ταῦτα τὰ ὀνόματα αὐτῶν Μαλα καὶ Νουα καὶ Εγλα καὶ Μελχα καὶ Θερσα

2 καὶ στᾶσαι ἔναντι Μωυσῆ καὶ ἔναντι Ελεαζαρ τοῦ ἱερέως καὶ ἔναντι τῶν ἀρχόντων καὶ ἔναντι πάσης συναγωγῆς ἐπὶ τῆς θύρας τῆς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου λέγουσιν

3 ὁ πατὴρ ἡμῶν ἀπέθανεν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ καὶ αὐτὸς οὐκ ἦν ἐν μέσῳ τῆς συναγωγῆς τῆς ἐπισυστάσης ἔναντι κυρίου ἐν τῇ συναγωγῇ Κορε ὅτι διὰ ἁμαρτίαν αὐτοῦ ἀπέθανεν καὶ υἱοὶ οὐκ ἐγένοντο αὐτῷ

4 μὴ ἐξαλειφθήτω τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν ἐκ μέσου τοῦ δήμου αὐτοῦ ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν αὐτῷ υἱός δότε ἡμῖν κατάσχεσιν ἐν μέσῳ ἀδελφῶν πατρὸς ἡμῶν

5 καὶ προσήγαγεν Μωυσῆς τὴν κρίσιν αὐτῶν ἔναντι κυρίου

6 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγων

7 ὀρθῶς θυγατέρες Σαλπααδ λελαλήκασιν δόμα δώσεις αὐταῖς κατάσχεσιν κληρονομίας ἐν μέσῳ ἀδελφῶν πατρὸς αὐτῶν καὶ περιθήσεις τὸν κλῆρον τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῶν αὐταῖς

8 καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ λαλήσεις λέγων ἄνθρωπος ἐὰν ἀποθάνῃ καὶ υἱὸς μὴ ᾖ αὐτῷ περιθήσετε τὴν κληρονομίαν αὐτοῦ τῇ θυγατρὶ αὐτοῦ

9 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ ᾖ θυγάτηρ αὐτῷ δώσετε τὴν κληρονομίαν τῷ ἀδελφῷ αὐτοῦ

10 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ ὦσιν αὐτῷ ἀδελφοί δώσετε τὴν κληρονομίαν τῷ ἀδελφῷ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ

11 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ ὦσιν ἀδελφοὶ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ δώσετε τὴν κληρονομίαν τῷ οἰκείῳ τῷ ἔγγιστα αὐτοῦ ἐκ τῆς φυλῆς αὐτοῦ κληρονομήσει τὰ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔσται τοῦτο τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ δικαίωμα κρίσεως καθὰ συνέταξεν κύριος τῷ Μωυσῇ

12 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἀνάβηθι εἰς τὸ ὄρος τὸ ἐν τῷ πέραν τοῦτο ὄρος Ναβαυ καὶ ἰδὲ τὴν γῆν Χανααν ἣν ἐγὼ δίδωμι τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ ἐν κατασχέσει

13 καὶ ὄψει αὐτὴν καὶ προστεθήσῃ πρὸς τὸν λαόν σου καὶ σύ καθὰ προσετέθη Ααρων ὁ ἀδελφός σου ἐν Ωρ τῷ ὄρει

14 διότι παρέβητε τὸ ῥῆμά μου ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ Σιν ἐν τῷ ἀντιπίπτειν τὴν συναγωγὴν ἁγιάσαι με οὐχ ἡγιάσατέ με ἐπὶ τῷ ὕδατι ἔναντι αὐτῶν τοῦτό ἐστιν ὕδωρ ἀντιλογίας Καδης ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ Σιν

15 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς πρὸς κύριον

16 ἐπισκεψάσθω κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῶν πνευμάτων καὶ πάσης σαρκὸς ἄνθρωπον ἐπὶ τῆς συναγωγῆς ταύτης

17 ὅστις ἐξελεύσεται πρὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν καὶ ὅστις εἰσελεύσεται πρὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν καὶ ὅστις ἐξάξει αὐτοὺς καὶ ὅστις εἰσάξει αὐτούς καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ἡ συναγωγὴ κυρίου ὡσεὶ πρόβατα οἷς οὐκ ἔστιν ποιμήν

18 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγων λαβὲ πρὸς σεαυτὸν τὸν Ἰησοῦν υἱὸν Ναυη ἄνθρωπον ὃς ἔχει πνεῦμα ἐν ἑαυτῷ καὶ ἐπιθήσεις τὰς χεῖράς σου ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν

19 καὶ στήσεις αὐτὸν ἔναντι Ελεαζαρ τοῦ ἱερέως καὶ ἐντελῇ αὐτῷ ἔναντι πάσης συναγωγῆς καὶ ἐντελῇ περὶ αὐτοῦ ἐναντίον αὐτῶν

20 καὶ δώσεις τῆς δόξης σου ἐπ᾽ αὐτόν ὅπως ἂν εἰσακούσωσιν αὐτοῦ οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ

21 καὶ ἔναντι Ελεαζαρ τοῦ ἱερέως στήσεται καὶ ἐπερωτήσουσιν αὐτὸν τὴν κρίσιν τῶν δήλων ἔναντι κυρίου ἐπὶ τῷ στόματι αὐτοῦ ἐξελεύσονται καὶ ἐπὶ τῷ στόματι αὐτοῦ εἰσελεύσονται αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ὁμοθυμαδὸν καὶ πᾶσα ἡ συναγωγή

22 καὶ ἐποίησεν Μωυσῆς καθὰ ἐνετείλατο αὐτῷ κύριος καὶ λαβὼν τὸν Ἰησοῦν ἔστησεν αὐτὸν ἐναντίον Ελεαζαρ τοῦ ἱερέως καὶ ἔναντι πάσης συναγωγῆς

23 καὶ ἐπέθηκεν τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν καὶ συνέστησεν αὐτόν καθάπερ συνέταξεν κύριος τῷ Μωυσῇ

1 Accesserunt autem filiæ Salphaad, filii Hepher, filii Galaad, filii Machir, filii Manasse, qui fuit filius Joseph: quarum sunt nomina, Maala, et Noa, et Hegla, et Melcha, et Thersa.

2 Steteruntque coram Moyse et Eleazaro sacerdote et cunctis principibus populi ad ostium tabernaculi fœderis, atque dixerunt:

3 Pater noster mortuus est in deserto, nec fuit in seditione, quæ concitata est contra Dominum sub Core, sed in peccato suo mortuus est: hic non habuit mares filios. Cur tollitur nomen illius de familia sua, quia non habuit filium? date nobis possessionem inter cognatos patris nostri.

4 Retulitque Moyses causam earum ad judicium Domini.

5 Qui dixit ad eum:

6 Justam rem postulant filiæ Salphaad: da eis possessionem inter cognatos patris sui, et ei in hæreditatem succedant.

7 Ad filios autem Israël loqueris hæc:

8 Homo cum mortuus fuerit absque filio, ad filiam ejus transibit hæreditas.

9 Si filiam non habuerit, habebit successores fratres suos.

10 Quod si et fratres non fuerint, dabitis hæreditatem fratribus patris ejus.

11 Sin autem nec patruos habuerit, dabitur hæreditas his qui ei proximi sunt. Eritque hoc filiis Israël sanctum lege perpetua, sicut præcepit Dominus Moysi.

12 Dixit quoque Dominus ad Moysen: Ascende in montem istum Abarim, et contemplare inde terram, quam daturus sum filiis Israël.

13 Cumque videris eam, ibis et tu ad populum tuum, sicut ivit frater tuus Aaron:

14 quia offendistis me in deserto Sin in contradictione multitudinis, nec sanctificare me voluistis coram ea super aquas. Hæ sunt aquæ contradictionis in Cades deserti Sin.

15 Cui respondit Moyses:

16 Provideat Dominus Deus spirituum omnis carnis hominem, qui sit super multitudinem hanc:

17 et possit exire et intrare ante eos, et educere eos vel introducere: ne sit populus Domini sicut oves absque pastore.

18 Dixitque Dominus ad eum: Tolle Josue filium Nun, virum in quo est spiritus, et pone manum tuam super eum.

19 Qui stabit coram Eleazaro sacerdote et omni multitudine:

20 et dabis ei præcepta cunctis videntibus, et partem gloriæ tuæ, ut audiat eum omnis synagoga filiorum Israël.

21 Pro hoc, si quid agendum erit, Eleazar sacerdos consulet Dominum. Ad verbum ejus egredietur et ingredietur ipse, et omnes filii Israël cum eo, et cetera multitudo.

22 Fecit Moyses ut præceperat Dominus: cumque tulisset Josue, statuit eum coram Eleazaro sacerdote et omni frequentia populi.

23 Et impositis capiti ejus manibus, cuncta replicavit quæ mandaverat Dominus.
