Numbers 7

CLV(i) 1 It came to be on the day Moses finished setting up the tabernacle that he anointed it and hallowed it and all its furnishings, and the altar and all its furnishings. When he had anointed them and hallowed them, 2 then the princes of Israel (the heads of their fathers' house, they, princes of the twelve stocks, they who had been standing over the ones being mustered) made an offerin. 3 and brought their approach present before Yahweh:six coach carts and twelve oxen, a cart for two of the princes and a bull for each one. They brought them near before the tabernacle. 4 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying. 5 Take them from them so that they will come to serve for the service of the tent of appointment, and give them to the Levites, to each man corresponding to his service. 6 So Moses took the carts and the oxen and gave them to the Levites. 7 Two of the carts and four of the oxen he gave to the sons of Gershon corresponding to their service, 8 and four of the carts and eight of the oxen he gave to the sons of Merari, corresponding to their service, by means of Ithamar son of Aaron the priest. 9 Yet to the sons of Kohath he gave none, for the carrier service of the holy of holies was on them; on their shoulders they carried it. 10 The princes made an offering for the dedication of the altar on the day it was anointed.
