Numbers 36

Matthew(i) 1 And the auncyent heades of the children of Galaad the sonne of Machir the sonne of Manasse of the kynred of the children of Ioseph, came forth and spake before Moses and the prynces which were auncient heades amonge the chyldren of Israel 2 and sayd. The Lord commaunded my Lorde to geue the land to enheret by lotte to the chyldren of Israell. And then my Lorde commaunded in the name of the Lorde to geue the enheritaunce of Zelaphead oure brother vnto hys daughters. 3 Nowe when any of the sonnes of the trybes of Israell take them to wyues, then shall their enheritaunce be taken from the enheritaunce of our fathers, and shal be put vnto the enherytaunce of the trybe in whych they are and shalbe taken from the lot of oure enheritaunce. 4 And when the yere of iubelye cometh vnto the chyldren of Israell, then shal their enheritaunce be put vnto the enheritaunce of the trybe wherin they are, and so shall their enheritaunce be taken awaye from the enheritaunce of the trybe of oure fathers. 5 And Moses commaunded the chyldren of Israell at the mouth of the Lord sayinge: the trybe of the chyldren of Ioseph haue sayde well. 6 Thys therfore doeth the Lorde commaunde the daughters of Zelaphead sayinge: let them be wyues to whom they them selfe thyncke best, but in the kynred of the trybe of theyr father shall they marye, 7 that the enheritaunce of the chyldren of Israel roule not from trybe to trybe. But that the chyldren of Israell maye abyde, euery man in the enheritaunce of the trybe of hys fathers. 8 And euery daughter that possesseth any enheritaunce amonge the trybes of the children of Israell, shalbe wyfe vnto one of the kynred of the trybe of her father, that the children of Israel may enioye euery man the enheritaunce of his father, 9 and that the enheritaunce go not from one trybe to another: but that the trybes of the chyldren of Israel, maye abyde euery man in his owne enherytaunce. 10 And as the Lorde commaunded Moses euen so dyd the daughters of Zelaphead: 11 Mahela, Thirza, Hagla, Milcha and Noa, and were maryed vnto their fathers brothers sonnes, 12 of the kynred of the chyldren of Manasses the sonne of Ioseph: and so they had their enheritaunce in the trybe of the kynred of their father. 13 These are the commaundementes and lawes whyche the Lorde commaunded thorow Moses, vnto the chyldren of Israell in the feldes of Moab vpon Iordan nye vnto Ierycho.
