    It discusses how family inheritance can change when marriage is involved. The inheritance either being forfeited or increased.

    Its concerning the Jews and their various tribes and family allotments.

    It might be useful to get a concept of land and property inheritance in general. But every family has their own rules.

    So no, I don't think that it's intended to be a standard concerning everyone.

    here is a more easily understood translation of the chapter.

    to my understanding there are passages in scripture that are specifically for the people of the times as a means of arriving at the fullness of time and the arrival of the Messiah. Since Christ is already there is not a real application to today's world necessarily IMO

    We inherit from our parents.

    A brilliant grasp of the obvious.

    I'd say it serves as a reminder to marry only those that will help us draw closer to Heavenly Father and His Son. Perhaps it also serves as a reminder that we each have a responsibility to fill in this life and we had best do that and not mettle in affairs that we have no part a certain sense...

    I hope that helps a bit! :o) Please feel free to e-mail me.
