Offerings of Tribal Princes
1When 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.
2Then the princes of Israel, heads of their ancestral houses—they were tribal princes in charge over those who were numbered—gave offerings.
3They 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.
4Adonai spoke to Moses saying,
5“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.”
6So Moses took the carts and the oxen and he gave them to the Levites.
7He gave two carts and four oxen to the sons of Gershon, as their work required,
8and four carts and eight oxen to the sons of Merari, as their work required, under the direction of Ithamar son of Aaron the kohen.
9But to the sons of Kohath he did not give any because their responsibility was carrying the holy items on their shoulders.
10When the altar was anointed, the princes brought their dedication offerings and presented them before Adonai.
11For Adonai had said to Moses, “Each day one of the princes is to bring his offering for the altar’s dedication.”
