Numbers 7Tree of Life Version (TLV)

Offerings of Tribal Princes

When Moses finished setting up the Tabernacle, he anointed and consecrated it and all its implements, the altar and all its utensils, and he anointed and consecrated them. Then the princes of Israel, heads of their ancestral houses—they were tribal princes in charge over those who were numbered—gave offerings. They brought as their gift before Adonai six covered carts and twelve oxen. A cart came from every two princes and an ox from each one of them. They presented them before the Tabernacle.

Adonai spoke to Moses saying, “Accept these from them to use in the service of the Tent of Meeting. Give them to the Levites to use as each man’s work requires.”

So Moses took the carts and the oxen and he gave them to the Levites. He gave two carts and four oxen to the sons of Gershon, as their work required, and four carts and eight oxen to the sons of Merari, as their work required, under the direction of Ithamar son of Aaron the kohen. But to the sons of Kohath he did not give any because their responsibility was carrying the holy items on their shoulders.

10 When the altar was anointed, the princes brought their dedication offerings and presented them before Adonai. 11 For Adonai had said to Moses, “Each day one of the princes is to bring his offering for the altar’s dedication.”

12 Bringing his offering on the first day was Nahshon son of Amminadab, from the tribe of Judah. 13 His offering was one silver plate weighing 130 shekels, one silver basin weighing 70 shekels by the shekel of the Sanctuary, both of them filled with fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering, 14 one ladle of 10 shekels of gold filled with incense, 15 one young bull from the herd, one ram, one male lamb a year old as a burnt offering, 16 one male goat as a sin offering, 17 and two oxen, five rams, five male goats and five male lambs one year old to be sacrificed as a fellowship offering.
