Numbers 6:22 Numbers 7:17

22 Then Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

23 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, Thus you shall bless the children of Israel; you shall say to them,

24 Jehovah bless you and keep you;

25 Jehovah make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you;

26 Jehovah lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.

27 So shall they put My name upon the children of Israel, that I Myself may bless them.


1 And on the day that Moses had finished setting up the tabernacle, and had anointed it and sanctified it and all its furnishings and the altar and all its utensils, and had anointed them and sanctified them,

2 The leaders of Israel, the heads of their fathers’ households (they were the leaders of the tribes, who were over those who had been numbered), presented their offering.

3 And they brought their offering before Jehovah: six covered wagons and twelve oxen, a wagon for every two of the leaders and an ox for each one; and they presented them before the tabernacle.

4 Then Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

5 Take these from them, that they may be used in doing the service of the Tent of Meeting; and you shall give them to the Levites, to each according to his service.

6 And Moses took the wagons and the oxen, and gave them to the Levites.

7 Two wagons and four oxen he gave to the sons of Gershon according to their service;

8 And four wagons and eight oxen he gave to the sons of Merari according to their service, under the direction of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.

9 But to the sons of Kohath he gave none, because the service of the sanctuary belonged to them; they bore this upon their shoulder.

10 And the leaders presented offerings for the dedication of the altar in the day that it was anointed; that is, the leaders presented their offering before the altar.

11 And Jehovah said to Moses, They shall present their offering, one leader each day, for the dedication of the altar.

12 And he who presented his offering the first day was Nahshon the son of Amminadab, of the tribe of Judah.

13 And his offering was one silver plate; its weight was one hundred thirty shekels; one silver bowl of seventy shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary; both of them full of fine flour mingled with oil for a meal offering;

14 One golden spoon of ten shekels, full of incense;

15 One bull of the herd, one ram, one male lamb a year old, for a burnt offering;

16 One male of the goats for a sin offering;

17 And for the sacrifice of peace offerings, two oxen, five rams, five male goats, five male lambs a year old. This was the offering of Nahshon the son of Amminadab.
