1 And it was, on the day that Moses had completed raising·​·up the Habitation, and had anointed it, and sanctified it, and all its vessels; and the altar and all its vessels`, and he anointed them, and sanctified them;

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.

4 And Jehovah said to Moses, saying,

5 Take it from them, and they may be to serve the service of the Tabernacle of the congregation; and thou shalt give them to the Levites, to each·​·man according·​·to* his service.

6 And Moses took the carts and the cattle, and gave them to the Levites.

7 Two carts and four cattle he gave to the sons of Gershon, according·​·to* their service;

8 and four carts and eight cattle he gave to the sons of Merari, according to their service, into the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.

9 But to the sons of Kohath he gave not any; for the service of the sanctuary was upon them that they should bear on the shoulders.

10 And the chiefs offered with the dedication of the altar in the day when it was anointed, and the chiefs offered their offering before the altar.

11 And Jehovah said to Moses, They shall offer their offering, one chief for a day, one chief for a day, for the dedication of the altar.
