Bible verses about Manassites
(From Forerunner Commentary)

Numbers 36:1-3   (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

What if one of Zelophehad's daughters were to marry a Jew? What if another marries an Asherite; a third one, a Benjamite; the fourth, a Gadite; and the fifth, a Simeonite? Who inherits the land when couple number one dies, or couple number two, or couple number three? The problem is that their offspring will not be of the same family and tribe as those in the area in which they are living; they would not be Manassites. They would be Jews, Asherites, Benjamites, Gadites, Simeonites, or whatever.

In other words, land that God gave to Manasseh would pass to the Jews, Asherites, etc., and the Manassites would not own their own land—all because a young person fell in love and married somebody out of his or her tribe.

Numbers 36:4   (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

Moses' solution to the problem became a judgment and is now part of the Bible. In such a case as with Zelophehad's daughters, they had to marry someone who was a Manassite if they wanted to hang on to the land. If they did not want the land, it would be given up according to the progression given in Numbers 27. They had to forfeit it, though, and it passed from their family altogether.
