1. Now, when Moses had completed the erection of the Dwelling and had anointed and consecrated it with all its equipment (as well as the altar with all its equipment),

2. an offering was made by the princes of Israel, who were heads of ancestral houses; the same princes of the tribes who supervised the census.

3. The offering they brought before the LORD consisted of six baggage wagons and twelve oxen, that is, a wagon for every two princes, and an ox for every prince. These they presented as their offering before the Dwelling.

4. The LORD then said to Moses,

5. "Accept their offering, that these things may be put to use in the service of the meeting tent. Assign them to the Levites, to each group in proportion to its duties."

6. So Moses accepted the wagons and oxen, and assigned them to the Levites.

8. and four wagons and eight oxen to the Merarites in proportion to their duties, under the supervision of Ithamar, son of Aaron the priest.
