Bible study 152 – Numbers 36Posted: March 5, 2017
In chapter 27, God allowed some sisters to inherit their father, because they had no brothers. Now, they are forced to marry within their tribe so that their inheritance will stay in the tribe. (The lands of each tribe are supposed to belong to that tribe for eternity. Remember, during the jubilee even lands sold to other tribes are to be returned to the tribe who originally owned them.)
And thus ends Numbers.
No inheritance shall be transferred from one tribe to another; for each of the tribes of the Israelites shall retain its own inheritance.
