1 On the day Moses set up the Tabernacle, he anointed it and set it apart as holy, along with all its furnishings and the altar with its utensils.

2 Then the leaders of Israel--the tribal leaders who had organized the census--came and brought their offerings.

3 Together they brought six carts and twelve oxen. There was a cart for every two leaders and an ox for each leader. They presented these to the LORD in front of the Tabernacle.

4 Then the LORD said to Moses,

5 "Receive their gifts and use these oxen and carts for the work of the Tabernacle.* Distribute them among the Levites according to the work they have to do."1

6 So Moses presented the carts and oxen to the Levites.

7 He gave two carts and four oxen to the Gershonite division for their work,

8 and four carts and eight oxen to the Merarite division for their work. All their work was done under the leadership of Ithamar son of Aaron the priest.

9 But he gave none of the carts or oxen to the Kohathite division, since they were required to carry the sacred objects of the Tabernacle on their shoulders.

10 The leaders also presented dedication gifts for the altar at the time it was anointed. They each placed their gifts before the altar.

11 The LORD said to Moses, "Let each leader bring his gift on a different day for the dedication of the altar."

12 On the first day Nahshon son of Amminadab, leader of the tribe of Judah, presented his offering.

13 The offering consisted of a silver platter weighing about 3 pounds and a silver basin of about 1 pounds.* These were both filled with grain offerings of choice flour mixed with olive oil.2

14 He also brought a gold container weighing about four ounces,* which was filled with incense.3

15 He brought a young bull, a ram, and a one-year-old male lamb as a burnt offering;

16 a male goat for a sin offering;

17 and two oxen, five rams, five male goats, and five one-year-old male lambs for a peace offering. This was the offering brought by Nahshon son of Amminadab.

18 On the second day Nethanel son of Zuar, leader of the tribe of Issachar, presented his offering.

19 The offering consisted of a silver platter weighing about 3 pounds and a silver basin of about 1 pounds. These were both filled with grain offerings of choice flour mixed with olive oil.

20 He also brought a gold container weighing about four ounces, which was filled with incense.

21 He brought a young bull, a ram, and a one-year-old male lamb as a burnt offering;

22 a male goat for a sin offering;

23 and two oxen, five rams, five male goats, and five one-year-old male lambs for a peace offering. This was the offering brought by Nethanel son of Zuar.

24 On the third day Eliab son of Helon, leader of the tribe of Zebulun, presented his offering.

25 The offering consisted of a silver platter weighing about 3 pounds and a silver basin of about 1 pounds. These were both filled with grain offerings of choice flour mixed with olive oil.

26 He also brought a gold container weighing about four ounces, which was filled with incense.

27 He brought a young bull, a ram, and a one-year-old male lamb as a burnt offering;

28 a male goat for a sin offering;

29 and two oxen, five rams, five male goats, and five one-year-old male lambs for a peace offering. This was the offering brought by Eliab son of Helon.

30 On the fourth day Elizur son of Shedeur, leader of the tribe of Reuben, presented his offering.

31 The offering consisted of a silver platter weighing about 3 pounds and a silver basin of about 1 pounds. These were both filled with grain offerings of choice flour mixed with olive oil.

32 He also brought a gold container weighing about four ounces, which was filled with incense.

33 He brought a young bull, a ram, and a one-year-old male lamb as a burnt offering;

34 a male goat for a sin offering;

35 and two oxen, five rams, five male goats, and five one-year-old male lambs for a peace offering. This was the offering brought by Elizur son of Shedeur.
