Numbers 7

Thomson(i) 1 Now on the day when Moses finished the rearing up of the tabernacle, he anointed it, and hallowed it, and all the implements thereof; and the altar, and all its utensils; and when he had anointed them, and hallowed them, 2 the chiefs of Israel, the twelve chiefs of the houses of their head families who were the chiefs of the tribes, the same who attended at the review, made an offering, 3 and brought as their gifts before the Lord, six covered waggons, and twelve oxen, a waggon from two chiefs, and an ox from each one. And when they had brought them before the Lord, 4 the Lord spoke to Moses saying, 5 Receive them from them, and they shall be for the works of the service of the tabernacle of the testimony; and thou shalt give them to the Levites, to each community according to their service. 6 So Moses, having taken the waggons and the oxen, gave them to the Levites; 7 he gave two waggons and four oxen to the Gersonites, according to their service; 8 and four waggons and eight oxen, he gave to the Merarites, according to their service, by Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest. 9 But to the Kaathites he gave none, because they having the sacred services of the sanctuary, are to carry on their shoulders. 10 The chiefs tendered also an offering for the dedication of the altar, on the day he anointed it. But when the chiefs brought their gift over against the altar, at some distance from it, 11 the Lord said to Moses, One chief a day. Let them bring forward, every chief his gifts on his day, for the dedication of the altar. 12 So he who brought forward his gifts on the first day, was Naasson, son of Aminadab chief of the tribe of Judas; 13 and he offered as his gift, one silver charger, the weight of which was a hundred and thirty shekels, one silver cup of seventy shekels after the holy shekel, both full of fine flour, mixed up with oil, for a sacrifice; 14 one censer, of ten shekels of gold, full of incense; 15 one young bull from the herd, one ram, one lamb of the first year, for a whole burnt offering, 16 and one kid of the goats for a sin offering, 17 and for a sacrifice of thanksgiving, two heifers, five rams, five he-goats, five ewe lambs of the first year.
