Bamidbar/Numbers  7:1 - 17

Chapter 7

1 It was on the day that Moses finished erecting the Tabernacle that he anointed it, sanctified it and all its utensils, and the Altar and all its utensils, and he had anointed and sanctified them.  2 The leaders of Israel, the heads of their fathers' household, brought offerings; they were the leaders of the tribes, they were those who stand at the countings.  3 They brought their offering before Hashem - six covered wagons and twelve oxen — a wagon for each two leaders and an ox for each — and they brought them before the Tabernacle.  4 Hashem said to Moses, saying,  5 "Take from them, and they shall be to perform the work of the Tent of Meeting; you shall give them to the Levites, each man according to his work."

6 So Moses took the wagons and the oxen and gave them to the Levites.  7 Two of the wagons and four of the oxen he presented to the sons of Gershon, in accordance with their work.  8 And four of the wagons and eight of the oxen he gave to the sons of Merari, in accordance with their work, under the authority of Ithamar, son of Aaron the Kohen.  9 And to the sons of Kohath he did not give; since the sacred service was upon them, they carried on the shoulder.  10 Then the leaders brought forward offerings for the dedication of the Altar on the day it was anointed, and the leaders brought their offering before the Altar.

11 Hashem said to Moses, "One leader each day, one leader each day shall they bring their offering for the dedication of the Altar."

12 The one who brought his offering on the first day was Nachshon son of Amminadab, of the tribe of Judah.  13 His offering was - one silver bowl, its weight a hundred and thirty [shekels]; and one silver basin of seventy shekels in the sacred shekel; both of them filled with fine flour mixed with oil for a meal-offering,  14 one gold ladle of ten [shekels] filled with incense,  15 one young bull, one ram, one sheep in its first year for an elevation-offering,  16 one he-goat for a sin-offering,  17 and for a feast peace-offering - two cattle, five rams, five he-goats, five sheep in their first year — this is the offering of Nachshon son of Amminadab.
