2 that the chiefs of Israel, heads of the house of their fathers, they who were the chiefs of the tribes, they who stood over those who were numbered, offered.

3 And they brought their offering before Jehovah, six covered carts, and twelve cattle; a cart for two of the chiefs, and an ox for each one; and they offered them before the Habitation.

Explanation of Numbers 7      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-8. The subject here first presented is the conjunction of the spiritual heaven with the celestial; and also, generally, the chapter treats of the acknowledgement, on the part of the spiritual man, that he receives all the good things of charity and faith and doctrine from the Lord through the celestial heavens.

Verses 9-11. But those who constitute the spiritual heaven cannot perform the functions of the ultimate heaven, their use being to minister to and support with all their power the celestial heaven, besides which they acknowledge the Lord in genuine spiritual worship; every society, indeed, and each individual, according to his state.

Verses 12-88. The specific acknowledgement and worship of societies and individuals is described.

Verse 89. Revelation, internal and external, is always the consequence of genuine acknowledgement and worship.
