From Numbers 7
When the tabernacle was set up all the tribes of Israel made offerings. Here is a breakdown of the first offering.
This post is part of my bible in a year series.
Passage and Comments
 He who offered his offering the first day was Nahshon the son of Amminadab, of the tribe of Judah.  And his offering was one silver plate whose weight was 130 shekels, one silver basin of 70 shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, both of them full of fine flour mixed with oil for a grain offering;  one golden dish of 10 shekels, full of incense;  one bull from the herd, one ram, one male lamb a year old, for a burnt offering;  one male goat for a sin offering;  and for the sacrifice of peace offerings, two oxen, five rams, five male goats, and five male lambs a year old. This was the offering of Nahshon the son of Amminadab. (Nu 7.12-17)
There is a fair amount of repetition in the twelve days. Again what is important for later hearers of this account is to hear their family names mentioned. It would have been noted with pride. Note all the different types of offerings being made. Grain, burnt, sin and peace. This is an expression of Hebrew worship.
