2 They appeared before Moses, the priest Eleazar, the leaders and the whole community, at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, and said,
Deut 17:8-10 Exod 18:13-14 Exod 18:19-26 Num 15:33-34
3 'Our father died in the desert. He was not a member of the party who banded together against Yahweh, Korah's party; it was for his own sin that he died without sons.
Num 26:64-65 Ezek 18:4 Num 14:35 John 8:21 John 8:24 Num 16:1-3 Num 16:19

6 and Yahweh spoke to Moses and said,
Gal 3:28 Ps 68:5-6
7 'Zelophehad's daughters are right in what they say. You will indeed give them a property to be their heritage among their father's kinsmen; see that their father's heritage is passed on to them.
Gal 3:28 Jer 49:11 Josh 17:4 Num 36:1-2 Ps 68:5
8 Then speak to the Israelites and say, "If a man dies without sons, his heritage will pass to his daughter.
9 If he has no daughter, the heritage will go to his brothers.
10 If he has no brothers, his heritage will go to his father's brothers.
11 If his father has no brothers, his heritage will go to the member of his clan who is most nearly related; it will become his property. This will be a legal rule for the Israelites, as Yahweh has ordered Moses." '

16 'May it please Yahweh, God of the spirits that give life to all living creatures, to appoint a leader for this community,
Num 16:22 Heb 12:9 1Kgs 5:5 1Pet 5:2-4 1Sam 12:13 Acts 20:28 Deut 31:14
17 to be at their head in all their undertakings, a man who will lead them out and bring them in, so that Yahweh's community will not be like sheep without a shepherd.'

Josh 1:16-18 1Chr 29:23 1Chr 29:25 1Sam 10:6 1Sam 10:9 2Kgs 2:9-10 2Kgs 2:15
21 He will present himself to the priest Eleazar who will consult Yahweh on his behalf by means of the rite of the urim; at his command, they will go out and, at his command, they will come in, he and all the Israelites with him, the whole community.'
1Sam 28:6 Exod 28:30 Josh 9:14 Neh 7:65 1Sam 22:10-15 1Sam 23:9 1Sam 30:7
