Offerings at the Dedication of the Tabernacle

1 When Moses finished setting up the tabernacle,1 he anointed2 it and consecrated it and all its furnishings.3 He also anointed and consecrated the altar and all its utensils.4 2 Then the leaders of Israel,5 the heads of families who were the tribal leaders in charge of those who were counted,6 made offerings. 3 They brought as their gifts before the LORD six covered carts7 and twelve oxen--an ox from each leader and a cart from every two. These they presented before the tabernacle. 4 The LORD said to Moses, 5 "Accept these from them, that they may be used in the work at the Tent of Meeting. Give them to the Levites as each man's work requires." 6 So Moses took the carts and oxen and gave them to the Levites. 7 He gave two carts and four oxen to the Gershonites,8 as their work required, 8 and he gave four carts and eight oxen to the Merarites,9 as their work required. They were all under the direction of Ithamar son of Aaron, the priest. 9 But Moses did not give any to the Kohathites,10 because they were to carry on their shoulders11 the holy things, for which they were responsible.
