The Holy Bible - The Fourth Book of Moses: Called Numbers, Chapter 27 (Latin)
1Then came the daughters of Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of Manasseh the son of Joseph: and these are the names of his daughters; Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah.
2And they stood before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest, and before the princes and all the congregation, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,
3Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not in the company of them that gathered themselves together against the LORD in the company of Korah; but died in his own sin, and had no sons.
4Why should the name of our father be done away from among his family, because he hath no son? Give unto us therefore a possession among the brethren of our father.
5And Moses brought their cause before the LORD.
6And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
7The daughters of Zelophehad speak right: thou shalt surely give them a possession of an inheritance among their father's brethren; and thou shalt cause the inheritance of their father to pass unto them.
8And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a man die, and have no son, then ye shall cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter.
9And if he have no daughter, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren.
10And if he have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his father's brethren.
11And if his father have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall possess it: and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute of judgment, as the LORD commanded Moses.
12And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel.
13And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered.
14For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.
15And Moses spake unto the LORD, saying,
16Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation,
17Which may go out before them, and which may go in before them, and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd.
18And the LORD said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him;
19And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight.
20And thou shalt put some of thine honour upon him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient.
21And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall ask counsel for him after the judgment of Urim before the LORD: at his word shall they go out, and at his word they shall come in, both he, and all the children of Israel with him, even all the congregation.
22And Moses did as the LORD commanded him: and he took Joshua, and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation:
23And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.
1accesserunt autem filiae Salphaad filii Epher filii Galaad filii Machir filii Manasse qui fuit filius Ioseph quarum sunt nomina Maala et Noa et Egla et Melcha et Thersa
2steteruntque coram Mosen et Eleazaro sacerdote et cunctis principibus populi ad ostium tabernaculi foederis atque dixerunt
3pater noster mortuus est in deserto nec fuit in seditione quae 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 habet filium date nobis possessionem inter cognatos patris nostri
4rettulitque Moses causam earum ad iudicium Domini
5qui dixit ad eum
6iustam rem postulant filiae Salphaad da eis possessionem inter cognatos patris sui et ei in hereditate succedant
7ad filios autem Israhel loqueris haec
8homo cum mortuus fuerit absque filio ad filiam eius transibit hereditas
9si filiam non habuerit habebit successores fratres suos
10quod si et fratres non fuerint dabitis hereditatem fratribus patris eius
11sin autem nec patruos habuerit dabitur hereditas his qui ei proximi sunt eritque hoc filiis Israhel sanctum lege perpetua sicut praecepit Dominus Mosi
12dixit quoque Dominus ad Mosen ascende in montem istum Abarim et contemplare inde terram quam daturus sum filiis Israhel
13cumque videris eam ibis et tu ad populum tuum sicut ivit frater tuus Aaron
14quia offendistis me in deserto Sin in contradictione multitudinis nec sanctificare me voluistis coram ea super aquas hae sunt aquae Contradictionis in Cades deserti Sin
15cui respondit Moses
16provideat Dominus Deus spirituum omnis carnis hominem qui sit super multitudinem hanc
17et possit exire et intrare ante eos et educere illos vel introducere ne sit populus Domini sicut oves absque pastore
18dixitque Dominus ad eum tolle Iosue filium Nun virum in quo est spiritus et pone manum tuam super eum
19qui stabit coram Eleazaro sacerdote et omni multitudine
20et dabis ei praecepta cunctis videntibus et partem gloriae tuae ut audiat eum omnis synagoga filiorum Israhel
21pro hoc si quid agendum erit Eleazar sacerdos consulet Dominum ad verbum eius egredietur et ingredietur ipse et omnes filii Israhel cum eo et cetera multitudo
22fecit Moses ut praeceperat Dominus cumque tulisset Iosue statuit eum coram Eleazaro sacerdote et omni frequentia populi
23et inpositis capiti eius manibus cuncta replicavit quae mandaverat Dominus
