SEV Biblia, Chapter 27:11 Y si su padre no tuviere hermanos, daréis su herencia a su pariente más cercano de su linaje, el cual la herederá; y será a los hijos de Israel por ley de derecho, como el SEÑOR mandó a Moisés.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 11. And if his father have no brethren , etc.] Nor any descending from them: then ye shall give his inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family : that is nearest of kin to him, though ever so remote; that is, of his father’s family, not his mother’s, which was no family: and he shall possess it : here the Jews have a saying, that an Israelite is never without heirs f427 : and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute of judgment ; a judicial law, that should ever remain firm, and sure, and unalterable: as the Lord commanded Moses ; and therefore no man could dispose of his estate or inheritance by will, otherwise than is set forth by this command.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-11 - The five daughters of Zelophehad considered themselves as lef destitute, having neither father nor brother to inherit any land. Their believing expectation that the word of the Lord would be performed i due season, and their desire of an interest in the promise inheritance; and the modest, candid manner in which they asked, withou secret murmurs or discontents, are a good example. They ask for possession in the land of Canaan. Herein they discovered, 1. Stron faith in the power and promise of God, concerning the giving of the land of Canaan to Israel. 2. And earnest desire of a place and name in the land of promise, which was a type of heaven. 3. Respect and honou for their father, whose name was dear to them now he was gone. He neve had done any thing that might bar his children's claim. It is a comfor to parents when they come to die, if though they have smarted for their own sin, yet they are not conscious of any of those iniquities whic God will visit on their children. God himself gives judgment. He take notice of the affairs, not only of nations, but of private families and orders them according to his will. The petition is granted. Thos who seek an inheritance in the land of promise, shall have what the seek for, and other things shall be added to them.
