No inheritance may pass from one tribe to another, for each Israelite tribe is to keep the land it inherits."

Darby Bible Translation

Naturally of a covetous disposition, Ahab, strengthened and sustained in wrongdoing by Jezebel, had followed …
Ellen Gould White—The Story of Prophets and Kings
Every daughter who inherits land in any Israelite tribe must marry someone in her father's tribal clan, so that every Israelite will possess the inheritance of their ancestors.
So Zelophehad's daughters did as the LORD commanded Moses.
