Numbers 7:72-89

72 On the eleventh day was Pag‘i’el the son of ‘Okhran, leader of the descendants of Asher. 

73 He offered one silver dish weighing 130 shekels [three-and-a-quarter pounds] and one silver basin of seventy shekels (using the sanctuary shekel) [one-and-three-quarters pounds], both full of fine flour mixed with olive oil for a grain offering; 

74 one gold pan of ten shekels [one-quarter pound], full of incense; 

75 one young bull, one ram, one male lamb in its first year as a burnt offering, 

76 one male goat as a sin offering, 

77 and, for the sacrifice of peace offerings, two oxen, five rams, five male goats, and five male lambs in their first year. This was the offering of Pag‘i’el the son of ‘Okhran.

78 On the twelfth day was Achira the son of ‘Enan, leader of the descendants of Naftali. 

79 He offered one silver dish weighing 130 shekels [three-and-a-quarter pounds] and one silver basin of seventy shekels (using the sanctuary shekel) [one-and-three-quarters pounds], both full of fine flour mixed with olive oil for a grain offering; 

80 one gold pan of ten shekels [one-quarter pound], full of incense; 

81 one young bull, one ram, one male lamb in its first year as a burnt offering, 

82 one male goat as a sin offering, 

83 and, for the sacrifice of peace offerings, two oxen, five rams, five male goats and five male lambs in their first year. This was the offering of Achira the son of ‘Enan.

84 This was the offering for dedicating the altar which was given by the leaders of Isra’el on the day of its anointing: twelve silver dishes, twelve silver basins, and twelve gold pans. 

85 Each silver dish weighed 130 shekels [three-and-a-quarter pounds] and each basin seventy shekels [one-and-three-quarters pounds]; all the silver of the vessels weighed 2,400 shekels (using the sanctuary shekel) [just over sixty pounds]. 

86 The twelve gold pans, full of incense, weighed ten shekels apiece (using the sanctuary shekel) [one-quarter pound]; all the gold of the pans weighed 120 shekels [three pounds]. 

87 The livestock for the burnt offering consisted of twelve bulls, twelve rams, and twelve male lambs in their first year, with their grain offering. There were twelve male goats for a sin offering. 

88 The livestock for the sacrifice of peace offerings consisted of twenty-four bulls, sixty rams, sixty male goats, and sixty male lambs in their first year. This was the offering for dedicating the altar after it had been anointed.

89 When Moshe went into the tent of meeting in order to speak with Adonai, he heard the voice speaking to him from above the ark-cover on the ark for the testimony, from between the two k’ruvim; and he spoke to him.
