Exodus 18:15–16; Numbers 27:5; Numbers 36:5–6

15 And Moses said to his father-in-law, Because zthe people come to me to inquire of God; 16 awhen they have a dispute, they come to me and I decide between one person and another, and I bmake them know the statutes of God and his laws.

Moses cbrought their case before the Lord.

And Moses commanded the people of Israel according to the word of the Lord, saying, The tribe of the people of Joseph uis right. This is what the Lord commands concerning the daughters of Zelophehad: Let them marry whom they think best, vonly they shall marry within the clan of the tribe of their father.
