Numbers 7New Life Version (NLV)

Gifts Given on the Altar by the Leaders

Moses finished putting up the meeting tent. On that day he put oil on it and made it holy, with the things inside, the altar and all its objects. He put oil on them and made them holy. Then the leaders of Israel, the heads of their fathers’ houses, brought their gifts. They were the leaders of the families, the heads of those who were numbered. As gifts to the Lord they brought six covered wagons and twelve bulls, a wagon for every two of the leaders and a bull for each one. Then they gave them in front of the meeting tent. The Lord said to Moses, “Receive these things from them, that they may be used in the work of the meeting tent. Give them to the Levites, to each man for the work he does.” So Moses took the wagons and the bulls, and gave them to the Levites. He gave two wagons and four bulls to the sons of Gershon, for the work they were doing. He gave four wagons and eight bulls to the sons of Merari, for the work they were doing under the leading of Ithamar the son of Aaron the religious leader. But Moses did not give any to the sons of Kohath. They had the duty of taking care of the holy objects which had to be carried on their shoulders. 10 The leaders gave gifts to set apart the altar on the day the oil was poured on it. They gave their gifts in front of the altar. 11 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Let one leader each day give the gifts to set apart the altar.”
