Hoglah
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A daughter of Zelophehad who, along with her sisters, appealed to Moses for her inheritance since their father had no sons (Num 26:33; 27:1–11; 36:1–12; Josh 17:3–6). Zelophehad’s daughters, who had no brothers, were required to marry within their clan to keep ancestral land within the tribe of Manasseh. The territory of Hoglah is mentioned in the Semitic Ostraca, along with districts that share the name of several of her sisters (Tirzah and Noah). There could also be a relationship between Hoglah and the town Beth-Hoglah.
