72 lambs

The number of lambs sacrificed during the special dedication services for the altar was 72. One lamb for each tribe for the ascending offering, five lambs for each tribe for the offering for healthy relationships. The lamb was a symbol of the rescue, pointing back to the escape from Egypt, and forward to the death of Christ, the Lamb of God.

LORD, thank you for Jesus Christ, your precious Lamb, and for your grace which made him the sacrifice for the rescue of us all.
