The gifts given to the Lord by the princes in Israel.
V. 1-9 Oxen and wagons were given to the Gershonites and the Merarites, for they had heavy burdens to bear; chapter 3, but none was given to the Kohathites, for they carried the holy furniture on their shoulders. This which specially pictured the Person of the Lord Jesus must be carried in a most exalted and personal manner.
V. 10-89 Notice that although each prince offered exactly the same, yet each one offered on a special day, and each prince and his offering is specially listed in complete detail. This reminds us that god never tires of hearing our praise.
Why would God take 80 verses to tell us this? Would it not be because praise belongs to God and the Lord Jesus Christ?
