7:3 And they brought their offering before the LORD, six a
covered wagons, and twelve oxen; a wagon for two of the
princes, and for each one an ox: and they brought them
before the tabernacle.
(a) Like horse litters, to keep the things that were carried
in them from the weather.
7:5 Take [it] of them, that they may be to do the b service of
the tabernacle of the congregation; and thou shalt give them
unto the Levites, to every man according to his service.
(b) That is, to carry things.
7:7 Two wagons and four oxen he gave unto the sons of Gershon,
c according to their service:
(c) For their use to carry with.
7:9 But unto the sons of Kohath he gave none: d because the
service of the sanctuary belonging unto them [was that] they
should bear upon their shoulders.
(d) The holy thing of the sanctuary must be carried on their
shoulders and not drawn with oxen, (Nu 4:15).
7:10 And the princes offered for e dedicating of the altar in
the day that it was anointed, even the princes offered
their offering before the altar.
(e) That is, when the first sacrifice was offered on it by
Aaron, in (Le 9:1).
7:84 This [was] the f dedication of the altar, in the day when
it was anointed, by the princes of Israel: twelve chargers
of silver, twelve silver bowls, twelve spoons of gold:
(f) This was the offering of the princes, when Aaron
dedicated the altar.
7:88 And all the oxen for the sacrifice of the peace offerings
[were] twenty and four bullocks, the rams sixty, the he
goats sixty, the lambs of the first year sixty. This [was]
the dedication of the altar, after that it was g
(g) By Aaron.
7:89 And when Moses was gone into the h tabernacle of the
congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of
one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that [was]
upon the ark of testimony, from i between the two
cherubims: and he spake unto him.
(h) That is, the sanctuary.
(i) According as he had promised in (Ex 25:22).
