Additional Links

Zelo'phehad. (first-born). Son of Zepher, son of Gilead, son of Machir, son of Manasseh. Joshua 17:3. (B.C. before 1450). He was, apparently, the second son of Hepher. 1 Chronicles 7:15. Zelophehad came out of Egypt with Moses, but died in the wilderness, as did the whole of that generation. Numbers 14:35; Numbers 27:3. On his death, without male heirs, his five daughters, just after the second numbering in the wilderness, came before Moses and Eleazar to claim the inheritance of their father in the tribe of Manasseh. The claim was admitted by divine direction. Numbers 26:33; Numbers 27:1-11.
