36 bulls

During this special dedication service for the altar of the tabernacle, a total of 36 bulls were given to be sacrificed. Twelve were given as ascending offerings — one for each tribe. These represented the appeal to God. Twenty-four bulls were given as fellowship offerings. These represented God’s acceptance of the appeal, and the communion with him that resulted.

LORD, thank you for inviting us into your heavenly presence, and fellowshipping with us.
