February 22


Numbers 7


A Time of Preparation…the People Numbered         Numbers 1-10:10, cont’d.


Numbers 5-10:10   The Purification of the People, cont’d.


Numbers 7:1-88-The sacrifices offered by the leaders of the tribes.  Each leader offered the same thing for his tribe.  This was the dedication offering (:84) for the altar from the leaders when it was anointed.


7:10-88 On 12 successive days, a different prince brought similar gifts and offerings for the dedication of the altar. The almost monotonous repetition of their generosity suggests God’s delight with their gifts and intensifies the example they left for succeeding generations.

The Ryrie Study Bible, 7:10-88 footnote, p. 218


Numbers 7:89-Moses spoke with God in the tent of meeting and "heard the voice speaking to him from above the mercy seat that was on the ark of the testimony, from between the two cherubim, so He spoke to him."


Prayer: Lord, please let my sacrifices and offerings be pleasing to You.
