Son of Hepher; descendant of Manasseh by Machir (Joshua 17:3). Died in the wilderness without male issue. He had no share in Korah's rebellion. His five daughters at the close of the second numbering came to Moses begging for their father's inheritance (Numbers 26:33; Numbers 26:27). Their petition was granted, and subsequently it was ordained that they and females under like circumstances should marry in their own tribe, that the tribal inheritances might not be confounded (Numbers 36).
