Numbers chapter .vij.

And when Moses had full set up the habitation and anointed it and sanctified it and all the apparel thereof, and had anointed and sanctified the altar also and all the vessels thereof: then the princes of Israel, heads over the houses of their fathers which were the lords of the tribes that stood and numbered, offered and brought their gifts before the LORD six covered chariots and twelve oxen: two and two a chariot and an ox every man, and they brought them before the habitation. And the LORD spake unto Moses saying: take it of them and let them be to do the service of the tabernacle of witness, and give them unto the Levites, every man according unto his office. And Moses took the chariots and the oxen, and gave them unto the Levites: two chariots and four oxen he gave unto the sons of Gerson according unto their office. And four chariots and eight oxen he gave unto the sons of Merari according unto their offices, under the hands of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest. But unto the sons of Cahath he gave none, for the office that pertained to them was holy, and therefore they must bear upon shoulders.
