7:1 (A:v, S:iv)

And it came to pass on the day that Mosheh had fully set up the mishkan, and had mashach (anointed) it, and Kadash it, and all the instruments thereof, both the Mitzbe'ach and all the vessels thereof, and had mashach (anointed) them, and sanctified them;

7:2 That the princes of Yisrael, heads of the house of their Avot, who [were] the princes of the tribes, and were over them that were numbered, offered:

7:3 And they brought their offering before YEHOVAH (יהוה), six covered wagons, and twelve oxen; a wagon for two of the princes, and for each one an ox: and they brought them before the mishkan.

7:4 And YEHOVAH spoke to Mosheh, saying:

7:5 Take [it] of them, that they may be to do the service of the Ohel Moed; and you shall give them to the Leviim, to every man according to his service.

7:6 And Mosheh took the wagons and the oxen, and gave them to the Levi'im.

7:7 Two wagons and four oxen he gave to Benai Gershon, according to their service:

7:8 And four wagons and eight oxen he gave to Benai Merari, according to their service, under the hand of Itamar Ben Aharon the kohen.

7:9 But to Benai Kohat he gave none: because the service of the sanctuary belonging to them [was that] they should bear upon their shoulders.

7:10 And the princes offered for dedicating of the Mitzbe'ach in the day that it was mashach (anointed), even the princes offered their offering before the Mitzbe'ach.
