Biblical Personalities: Nachson ben Aminadav

Nachshon brought his offering on the 1st of Nisan. In connection with all the other princes of the tribes, the word Nasi is written (Numbers 70. Only Nachshon, who sacrificed first, is not called a prince, so that if he would act haughtily over the other princes and say, “I am their king for I have brought my offering first,” they could retort, “You are only a commoner, for everyone else is called a prince, but you are not” (Bamidbar Rabbah 13:17).
