I humbly submit for your consideration the following on bequeaths.

(Numbers 27:8) And give the following instructions to the people of Israel: If a man dies and has no son, then give his inheritance to his daughters.

(Psalms 17:14) By the power of your hand, O LORD, destroy those who look to this world for their reward. But satisfy the hunger of your treasured ones. May their children have plenty, leaving an inheritance for their descendants.

(Proverbs 13:22) Good people leave an inheritance to their grandchildren, but the sinner's wealth passes to the godly.

(Proverbs 17:2) A wise servant will rule over the master's disgraceful son and will share the inheritance of the master's children.

(Proverbs 19:14) Fathers can give their sons an inheritance of houses and wealth, but only the LORD can give an understanding wife.

(Proverbs 20:21) An inheritance obtained too early in life is not a blessing in the end.

(Galatians 4:1) Think of it this way. If a father dies and leaves an inheritance for his young children, those children are not much better off than slaves until they grow up, even though they actually own everything their father had.
