The Leaders Make Offerings

On the day Moses finished setting up the tabernacle and appointed and consecrated it and all its vessels, and the altar and its vessels, and he appointed them and consecrated them, the leaders of Israel, the heads of the families,[a] presented an offering; they were the leaders of the tribes and were the ones in charge of the counting. They brought their offering before the presence of[b] Yahweh, six covered utility carts and twelve cattle, a utility cart for two of the leaders, and a bull for each; and they presented them before[c] the tabernacle. Yahweh said to Moses, saying, Take them,[d] and they will be used to do the work of the tent of the assembly; and you will give them to the Levites, each according to his required service.”[e] So Moses took the utility carts and the cattle, and he gave them to the Levites. Two utility carts and four cattle he gave to the descendants[f] of Gershon according to their required service;[g] and four utility carts and eight cattle he gave to the descendants[h] of Merari according to their required service,[i] under the authority of[j] Ithamar son of Aaron the priest. But to the descendants[k] of Kohath he did not give anything because the work of the sanctuary they carried upon them on their shoulders.[l]

10 The leaders presented offerings for the dedication of the altar on the day of its anointing, and the leaders presented their offerings before[m] the altar. 11 Yahweh said to Moses, “One leader for each day[n] will present their offering for the dedication of the altar.”
