Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Because the daughters of Manasseh had an inheritance among his sons: and the rest of Manasseh's sons had the land of Gilead.

The daughters — Not less than the son, so the sex was no bar to their inheritance.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Joshua 17:6 Because the daughters of Manasseh had an inheritance among his sons: and the rest of Manasseh’s sons had the land of Gilead.

Ver. 6. Because the daughters of Manasseh.] Here was no Salic law to exclude them. In many women, besides their sex, there is nothing womanlike, or weak souls have no sexes; and women’s bodies are of a more exact composition, &c.
