      1  The inconvenience of the inheritance of daughters is
        remedied by marrying in their own tribes,
     7  lest the inheritance should be removed from the tribe.
    10  The daughters of Zelophehad marry their father's brothers'
        sons.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - Gilead.
       * Nu 26:29-33; 27:1 Jos 17:2,3 1Ch 7:14-16
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - The Lord commanded.
      To one division of the tribe of Manasseh, a portion had been
      assigned eastward of Jordan; but Zelophehad was of that
      division, to which an inheritance was afterwards allotted west
      of Jordan; yet, expecting the promised land, the elders of the
      Manassites now propose a difficulty, upon the adjudged case of
      Zelophehad's daughters.  (ch. 1 27:1-11.)  If the females should
      inherit, in defect of male issue, and should intermarry with
      other tribes they would diminish the interest, and weaken the
      influence of their own tribes, and give occasion to future
      confusion, and perhaps contention.  The Manassites therefore
      referred the case to Moses; and he, by the authority of God,
      annexed a clause, which would effectually keep the tribes and
      inheritances distinct, as long as it was observed.  Heiresses
      were not allowed to marry out of their own tribe, though
      within those bounds they might consult their own inclinations.

      inheritance of another tribe by marrying an heiress.

                           CONCLUDING REMARKS.
    
    Thus terminates the book of Numbers; a book containing a series
    of the most astonishing providences and events.  Every where and
    in every circumstance God appears; and yet there is no
    circumstance or occasion which does not justify those signal
    displays of his grace and mercy; and in every relation we
    perceive the consistency of the divine intentions, and the
    propriety of those laws which he established.
                The Fifth Book of Moses, called Deuteronomy.
