Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible
Numbers 36

 

 

Verses 1-13

The daughters of Zelophehad had obtained an ordinance Numbers 28:6-11 which permitted the daughters of an Israelite dying without male issue to inherit their father‘s property. The chiefs of the Machirites, of whom Zelophehad had been one, now obtain a supplemental enactment, directing that heiresses should marry within their own tribe.

Numbers 36:4

Be taken away - i. e. be permanently taken away. The jubilee year, by not restoring the estate to the tribe to which it originally belonged, would in effect confirm the alienation.

Numbers 36:11

Unto their father‘s brothers‘ sons - Or more generally, “unto the sons of their kinsmen.”
