What were the family of B'nei Gil'ad concerned about?


Rashi: They were concerned that, should the daughters of Tzlofchad (who were from their tribe - Menasheh) marry husbands from another tribe, then, when their husbands die, their sons will inherit them, thereby transferring part of the portion of Menasheh to another tribe 1 ).


Seforno: They were concerned that, if the portion of the B'nos Tz'lofchad would end up in the territory of another tribe, the borders of both Menasheh and the other tribe would be messed up. 2
