The Five Daughters of Zelophehad

In Numbers 27, a man named Zelophehad had five daughters and no sons. These daughters were born at a time when the worth of a woman was determined by the value of her dowry. By law, daughters were not entitled to an inheritance so when their father died, they faced a frightening future. No father to protect them. No husband to support them. No inheritance to provide for them. Talk about women in crisis.

But these women did not despair.

Together, they presented their case to the entire assembly of men, who in turn, took their request directly to the Lord. And the Lord declared a radical, permanent change to the law, securing the inheritance of his precious daughters.


At the Five Sisters Project, we believe each woman has a spiritual inheritance to claim. When the world says you are worthless, the Lord says you are His precious daughter.
