daughters of Zelophehad
27:7 daughters of Zelophehad. The names of these five daughters are given in Numbers 26:33. Their father was one of the many who had not been permitted to enter the promised land because of his unbelief but, unlike others in the same condemnation, had left no sons to carry on his name. It was probably Gilead’s name these women wanted to be remembered by, however, rather than that of their disgraced father.
