[Numbers 26:6] OF HEZRON, THE FAMILY OF THE HEZRONITES: OF CARMI, THE FAMILY OF THE CARMITES.
[Numbers 26:7] THESE ARE THE FAMILIES OF THE REUBENITES: AND THEY THAT WERE NUMBERED OF THEM WERE FORTY AND THREE THOUSAND AND SEVEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY.
[Numbers 26:8] AND THE SONS OF PALLU; ELIAB.
[Numbers 26:9] AND THE SONS OF ELIAB; NEMUEL, AND DATHAN, AND ABIRAM. THIS IS THAT DATHAN AND ABIRAM, WHICH WERE FAMOUS IN THE CONGREGATION, WHO STROVE AGAINST MOSE AND AGAINST AARON IN THE COMPANY OF KORAH, WHEN THEY STROVE AGAINST THE LORD:
[Numbers 26:10] AND THE EARTH OPENED HER MOUTH, AND SWALLOWED THEM UP TOGETHER WITH KORAH, WHEN THAT COMPANY DIED, WHAT TIME THE FIRE DEVOURED TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY MEN: AND THEY BECAME A SIGN.
[Numbers 26:11] NOTWITHSTANDING THE CHILDREN OF KORAH DIED NOT.
Samuel the Prophet was a descendant of Korach.
Descendants of Korach were also members of the choir in the Temple service.
[Numbers 26:12] THE SONS OF SIMEON AFTER THEIR FAMILIES: OF NEMUEL, THE FAMILY OF THE NEMUELITES: OF JAMIN, THE FAMILY OF THE JAMINITES: OF JACHIN, THE FAMILY OF THE JACHINITES:
PEOPLES OF SIMEON
Semnoni (Germany, included the Angle-group prior to their invasion of Britain),
Semoni (east Celtic Britain),
Samnites (Brittany Gaul).
Clans of Simeon:
Nemuel = Nemetae (Gaul), Nemnetes? (Gaul).

From 59,300 (Numbers 1:23), the tribe of Simeon shrank to a population of only 22,200 (Numbers 26:14), a decline of more than 37,000!
There is a British Israel Theory that the missing Simeonites had gone overseas and founded the nation of Sparta. We however consider Sparta to have been founded by Edom (Esau) and the missing Simeonites to have died in the plague caused by copulation with the Moabite and Midianite sex-trap vixens.

Heber (Chever) = Caber (Wales), Chabiones (Franks), Ligi and Lygi [= Celtic groups absorbed by Vandals, both their names may derive form a word-root meaning "Union" (e.g. "league") which is also the meaning in Hebrew of the name "Heber"].

[Numbers 26:46] AND THE NAME OF THE DAUGHTER OF ASHER WAS SARAH.
SARAH in Hebrew "Serach" i.e. it is not the same name in Hebrew as Sarah the wife of Abraham.
Serach daughter of Asher is given her own mention here which (apart from the daughter of Zelophehad from Manasseh) is exceptional. Perhaps she too was to have Tribal singnificance?
[Numbers 26:47] THESE ARE THE FAMILIES OF THE SONS OF ASHER ACCORDING TO THOSE THAT WERE NUMBERED OF THEM; WHO WERE FIFTY AND THREE THOUSAND AND FOUR HUNDRED.
[Numbers 26:48] OF THE SONS OF NAPHTALI AFTER THEIR FAMILIES: OF JAHZEEL, THE FAMILY OF THE JAHZEELITES: OF GUNI, THE FAMILY OF THE GUNITES:
[Numbers 26:49] OF JEZER, THE FAMILY OF THE JEZERITES: OF SHILLEM, THE FAMILY OF THE SHILLEMITES.

[Numbers 26:51] THESE WERE THE NUMBERED OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND AND A THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY.
[Numbers 26:52] AND THE LORD SPAKE UNTO MOSES, SAYING,
[Numbers 26:53] UNTO THESE THE LAND SHALL BE DIVIDED FOR AN INHERITANCE ACCORDING TO THE NUMBER OF NAMES.
[Numbers 26:54] TO MANY THOU SHALT GIVE THE MORE INHERITANCE, AND TO FEW THOU SHALT GIVE THE LESS INHERITANCE: TO EVERY ONE SHALL HIS INHERITANCE BE GIVEN ACCORDING TO THOSE THAT WERE NUMBERED OF HIM.
The land was to be divided equally with each warrior receiving an equal share and this share was to be irrevocably passed onto his descendants.
[Numbers 26:55] NOTWITHSTANDING THE LAND SHALL BE DIVIDED BY LOT: ACCORDING TO THE NAMES OF THE TRIBES OF THEIR FATHERS THEY SHALL INHERIT.
Tribal Inheritance is determined by the father. Lineage is patrilineal.
[Numbers 26:56] ACCORDING TO THE LOT SHALL THE POSSESSION THEREOF BE DIVIDED BETWEEN MANY AND FEW.

Amram was the son of Korath who was the son of Levi whereas his wife Jochebad (Hebrew :Yocheved) was the daughter of Levi. Yocheved was therefore the sister of the father of Amram, she was his aunt. Such marriages were later to be strictly forbidden by the Torah. Before the giving of the Torah most Torah laws were not applicable.
[Numbers 26:60] AND UNTO AARON WAS BORN NADAB, AND ABIHU, ELEAZAR, AND ITHAMAR.
[Numbers 26:61] AND NADAB AND ABIHU DIED, WHEN THEY OFFERED STRANGE FIRE BEFORE THE LORD.
[Numbers 26:62] AND THOSE THAT WERE NUMBERED OF THEM WERE TWENTY AND THREE THOUSAND, ALL MALES FROM A MONTH OLD AND UPWARD: FOR THEY WERE NOT NUMBERED AMONG THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, BECAUSE THERE WAS NO INHERITANCE GIVEN THEM AMONG THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.
[Numbers 26:63] THESE ARE THEY THAT WERE NUMBERED BY MOSES AND ELEAZAR THE PRIEST, WHO NUMBERED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL IN THE PLAINS OF MOAB BY JORDAN NEAR JERICHO.
[Numbers 26:64] BUT AMONG THESE THERE WAS NOT A MAN OF THEM WHOM MOSES AND AARON THE PRIEST NUMBERED, WHEN THEY NUMBERED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL IN THE WILDERNESS OF SINAI.
[Numbers 26:65] FOR THE LORD HAD SAID OF THEM, THEY SHALL SURELY DIE IN THE WILDERNESS. AND THERE WAS NOT LEFT A MAN OF THEM, SAVE CALEB THE SON OF JEPHUNNEH, AND JOSHUA THE SON OF NUN.
All the people who had come out of Egypt were to die in the Wilderness except Caleb and Yehoshua.
[Numbers 27:1] THEN CAME THE DAUGHTERS OF ZELOPHEHAD, THE SON OF HEPHER, THE SON OF GILEAD, THE SON OF MACHIR, THE SON OF MANASSEH, OF THE FAMILIES OF MANASSEH THE SON OF JOSEPH: AND THESE ARE THE NAMES OF HIS DAUGHTERS; MAHLAH, NOAH, AND HOGLAH, AND MILCAH, AND TIRZAH.

# 2. Question on Male Lineage and the daughters of Zelophehad
The daughters of Zelophehad, from the tribe of Manasseh, asked for and received (Numbers 27:7) the inheritance of their father. Archaeological evidence shows that these women gave their names to provinces within the inheritance of Manasseh west of the Jordan.
#1. Archaeology: Evidence of Ancient Tribal Clans in Samaria of Manasseh
The daughters of Zelophehad asserted their rights.
This a characteristic of the Tribe of Manasseh.
We find it amongst the Picts of Scotland who descend from Ayazar from Manasseh and were related to the Khazars. We also find it amongst the Khazars who were once lead by a woman general. The Scythians also occasionally used women warriors.
In the USA today women are very important at all levels of society and in all fields of endeavor and in all political groups (left or right).
Ms Joseph[Numbers 27:2] AND THEY STOOD BEFORE MOSES, AND BEFORE ELEAZAR THE PRIEST, AND BEFORE THE PRINCES AND ALL THE CONGREGATION, BY THE DOOR OF THE TABERNACLE OF THE CONGREGATION, SAYING,
The daughters of Zelphehad asserted themselves and asked for their rights. The Almighty justified them. They received what was theirs naturally without upsetting the masculine equilibrium.
Amos (ch.4) refers to the women of Manasseh and Ephraim in Samaria as the "Cows of Bashan" who make irrational demands of their husbands. Their menfolk are then so harassed by the women that they go out and oppress the poor and vulnerable in order to satisfy the outlandish demands of their ladies. The women of Joseph have a tendency to be assertive. This can be either good or bad depending on the circumstances but apparently it is the reality. They also have the quality of understanding and acting as companions, as partners along the road of life. The menfolk of Joseph expect such a quality.
The Haftorah (Reading from the Prophets) is from Jeremiah (Yirmiyahu) 1:1-2:3.
This ends with the Almighty recalling the early days of Israel and how they were once a holy people. In the future they will return to be holy once again.
[Jeremiah 2:2] GO AND CRY IN THE EARS OF JERUSALEM, SAYING, THUS SAITH THE LORD; I REMEMBER THEE, THE KINDNESS OF THY YOUTH, THE LOVE OF THINE ESPOUSALS, WHEN THOU WENTEST AFTER ME IN THE WILDERNESS, IN A LAND THAT WAS NOT SOWN.
Jeremiah likens Israel to a bride who was prepared to go with her husband into the wilderness and the great unknown. In a sense every marriage has something of this character.
The early settlers of America, Australia, and Israel also were taking great risks and their womenfolk are to be admired at least as much as the men.
The Jews went into Exile and remained true to God according to their level of understanding even though this left them without protection or surety of abode and often with only a precarious livelihood.
[Jeremiah 2:3] ISRAEL WAS HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD, AND THE FIRSTFRUITS OF HIS INCREASE: ALL THAT DEVOUR HIM SHALL OFFEND; EVIL SHALL COME UPON THEM, SAITH THE LORD.
