Offerings at the Tabernacle's Consecration

1It came to pass on the day that Moses had finished setting up the tabernacle and had anointed it and set it apart as holy, along with all its furnishings and the altar with all its vessels, and he had anointed them and set them apart as holy,
  2that the rulers of Israel, the heads of their fathers’ houses, offered. These were the chiefs of the tribes. These are they who were over those who were numbered;
  3and they brought their approach offering before Yahweh, six covered wagons and 12 oxen, a wagon for every two of the chiefs, and for each one an ox; and they presented them before the tabernacle.
 

4Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
  5“Accept these from them, that they may be used in doing the service of the Tent of Meeting; and you are to give them to the Levites, to every man according to his service.”
 

6Moses took the wagons and the oxen and gave them to the Levites.
  7He gave two wagons and four oxen to the sons of Gershon according to their service,
  8and he gave four wagons and eight oxen to the sons of Merari according to their service under the direction of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.
  9But to the sons of Kohath he gave none, because the service of the sanctuary belonged to them; they carried it on their shoulders.
 

10The chiefs gave offerings for the dedication of the altar in the day that it was anointed, even the chiefs gave their approach offerings before the altar.
