March 1st, Numbers 7: Offerings for the Tabernacle

Numbers 7 recounts the offerings for the tabernacle. The leaders of Israel, the heads of families of the tribal leaders, brought six covered carts and twelve oxen, i.e. one cart for every two and an oxen from each leader.

Moses accepted their gifts at the Lord’s behest. Moses gave the Gershonites two carts and four oxen, and to the Merarites he gave four carts and eight oxen. But he did not give any to the Kohathites, who were to carry holy things on their shoulders.

When the altar was anointed, a different tribe leader brought his offering over twelve days.

They all made the same offering:

  • One silver plate weighing 130 shekels.
  • One silver sprinkling bowl weighing 70 shekels, both silver offerings filled with fine four mixed with oil as a grain offering.
  • One gold dish weighing 10 shekels, filled with incense.
  • One young bull, ram, and a year-old male lamb for a burnt offering.
  • One male goat for a sin offering.
  • Two oxen, five rams, five male goats and five year-old male lambs for a fellowship offering.
