1. When Amram remarried Yocheved, she was one 130 years old.
2. When Amram remarried Yocheved, Aharon and Miriam sang before them.
3. Shmuel: Bnos Tzelafchad were not commanded to marry men only from their own tribe.
4. Rava: All other women of that generation who inherited their fathers were commanded not to marry out of their tribe.
5. The Gemara discusses how we know that in other places where the Torah states, "This is the thing," that it applies for all generations.


1. Miraculously, she became beautiful like a young woman.
2. The Heavenly angels recited before them, "Em ha'Banim Semechah" -- "The mother of the sons is happy."
3. The directive to marry within their own tribe was merely given to them as good advice, not as a commandment. They followed this advice.
4. This is the meaning of the verse, "This is the thing," in the context of the prohibition against women who inherit from marrying out of their tribe. This means that only for this generation was the commandment obligatory (with the exception of for Bnos Tzelafchad, for whom it was just good advice), but not for ensuing generations.
5. For example, the Gemara asks that the prohibition of slaughtering a Korban outside the Beis ha'Mikdash should also not apply for all generations, as the verse states, "This is the thing" (so it should have applied only to the generation of the Mishkan). The Gemara answers that the verse there also says, "For generations," making it clear that this applies for all time.
