1 And the heads of the tribe of the sons of Galaad the son of Machir the son of Manasse, of the tribe of the sons of Joseph, drew near, and spoke before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest, and before the heads of the houses of the families of the children of Israel: 2 and they said, The Lord commanded our lord to render the land of inheritance by lot to the children of Israel; and the Lord appointed our lord to give the inheritance of Salpaad our brother to his daughters. 3 And they will become wives in one of the tribes of the children of Israel; so their inheritance shall be taken away from the possession of our fathers, and shall be added to the inheritance of the tribe into which the women shall marry, and shall be taken away from the portion of our inheritance. 4 And if there shall be a release of the children of Israel, then shall their inheritance be added to the inheritance of the tribe into which the women marry, and their inheritance, shall be taken away from the inheritance of our family’s tribe. 5 And Moses charged the children of Israel by the commandment of the Lord, saying, Thus says the tribe of the children of Joseph. 6 This [is] the thing which the Lord has appointed the daughters of Salpaad, saying, Let them marry where they please, only let them marry [men] of their father’s tribe. 7 So shall not the inheritance of the children of Israel go about from tribe to tribe, for the children of Israel shall steadfastly continue each in the inheritance of his family’s tribe. 8 And whatever daughter is heiress to a property of the tribes of the children Israel, [such] women shall be married each to one of her father’s tribe, that the sons of Israel may each inherit the property of his father’s tribe. 9 And the inheritance shall not go about from one tribe to another, but the children of Israel shall steadfastly continue each in his own inheritance. 10 As the Lord commanded Moses, so did they to the daughters of Salpaad. 11 So Thersa, and Egla, and Melcha, and Nua, and Malaa, the daughters of Salpaad, married their cousins; 12 they were married [to men] of the tribe of Manasse of the sons of Joseph; and their inheritance was attached to the tribe of their father’s family. 13 These [are] the commandments, and the ordinances, and the judgments, which the Lord commanded by the hand of Moses, at the west of Moab, at Jordan by Jericho. ΚΑΙ προσῆλθον οἱ ἄρχοντες φυλῆς υἱῶν Γαλαὰδ υἱοῦ Μαχὶρ υἱοῦ Μανασσῆ ἐκ τῆς φυλῆς υἱῶν ᾿Ιωσὴφ καὶ ἐλάλησαν ἔναντι Μωυσῆ καὶ ἔναντι ᾿Ελεάζαρ τοῦ ἱερέως καὶ ἔναντι τῶν ἀρχόντων οἴκων πατριῶν τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραὴλ 2 καὶ εἶπαν· τῷ κυρίῳ ἡμῶν ἐνετείλατο Κύριος ἀποδοῦναι τὴν γῆν τῆς κληρονομίας ἐν κλήρῳ τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ τῷ κυρίῳ συνέταξε Κύριος δοῦναι τὴν κληρονομίαν Σαλπαὰδ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ ἡμῶν ταῖς θυγατράσιν αὐτοῦ. 3 καὶ ἔσονται ἑνὶ τῶν φυλῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραὴλ γυναῖκες, καὶ ἀφαιρεθήσεται ὁ κλῆρος αὐτῶν ἐκ τῆς κατασχέσεως τῶν πατέρων ἡμῶν καὶ προστεθήσεται εἰς κληρονομίαν τῆς φυλῆς, οἷς ἂν γένωνται γυναῖκες, καὶ ἐκ τοῦ κλήρου τῆς κληρονομίας ἡμῶν ἀφαιρεθήσεται. 4 ἐὰν δὲ γένηται ἡ ἄφεσις τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ προστεθήσεται ἡ κληρονομία αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τὴν κληρονομίαν τῆς φυλῆς, οἷς ἂν γένωνται γυναῖκες, καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς κληρονομίας φυλῆς πατριᾶς ἡμῶν ἀφαιρεθήσεται ἡ κληρονομία αὐτῶν. 5 καὶ ἐνετείλατο Μωυσῆς τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ισραὴλ διὰ προστάγματος Κυρίου λέγων· οὕτως φυλὴ υἱῶν ᾿Ιωσὴφ λέγουσι· 6 τοῦτο τὸ ῥῆμα, ὃ συνέταξε Κύριος τοῖς θυγατράσι Σαλπαάδ, λέγων· οὗ ἀρέσκῃ ἐναντίον αὐτῶν, ἔστωσαν γυναῖκες, πλὴν ἐκ τοῦ δήμου τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῶν ἔστωσαν γυναῖκες, 7 καὶ οὐχὶ περιστραφήσεται κληρονομία τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀπὸ φυλῆς ἐπὶ φυλήν, ὅτι ἕκαστος ἐν τῇ κληρονομίᾳ τῆς φυλῆς τῆς πατριᾶς αὐτοῦ προσκολληθήσονται οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραήλ. 8 καὶ πᾶσα θυγάτηρ ἀγχιστεύουσα κληρονομίαν ἐκ τῶν φυλῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἑνὶ τῶν ἐκ τοῦ δήμου τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῆς ἔσονται γυναῖκες, ἵνα ἀγχιστεύσωσιν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἕκαστος τὴν κληρονομίαν τὴν πατρικὴν αὐτοῦ· 9 καὶ οὐ περιστραφήσεται ὁ κλῆρος ἐκ φυλῆς ἐπὶ φυλὴν ἑτέραν, ἀλλ’ ἕκαστος ἐν τῇ κληρονομίᾳ αὐτοῦ προσκολληθήσονται οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραήλ. 10 ὃν τρόπον συνέταξε Κύριος Μωυσῇ, οὕτως ἐποίησαν θυγατράσι Σαλπαάδ, 11 καὶ ἐγένοντο Θερσὰ καὶ ᾿Εγλὰ καὶ Μελχὰ καὶ Νούα καὶ Μαλαὰ θυγατέρες Σαλπαὰδ τοῖς ἀνεψιοῖς αὐτῶν· 12 ἐκ τοῦ δήμου τοῦ Μανασσῆ υἱῶν ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἐγενήθησαν γυναῖκες, καὶ ἐγενήθη ἡ κληρονομία αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τὴν φυλὴν δήμου τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῶν. 13 Αὗται αἱ ἐντολαὶ καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα καὶ τὰ κρίματα, ἃ ἐνετείλατο Κύριος ἐν χειρὶ Μωυσῆ ἐπὶ δυσμῶν Μωὰβ ἐπὶ τοῦ ᾿Ιορδάνου κατὰ ῾Ιεριχώ.
