Numbers 10

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Make to yourself two silver trumpets: you shall make them of hammered work; and they shall be to you for the purpose of calling the assembly, and of removing the camps. And you shall sound with them, and all the congregation shall be gathered to the door of the tabernacle of witness. And if they shall sound with one, all the rulers, even the princes of Israel, shall come to you. And you shall sound an alarm, and the camps pitched eastward shall begin to move. And you shall sound a second alarm, and the camps pitched southward shall move; and you shall sound a third alarm, and the camps pitched westward shall move forward; and you shall sound a fourth alarm, and they that encamp toward the north shall move forward: they shall sound an alarm at their departure. And whenever you shall gather the assembly, you shall sound, but not an alarm. And the priests, the sons of Aaron, shall sound with the trumpets; and it shall be a perpetual ordinance for you throughout your generations. And if you shall go forth to war in your land against your enemies that are opposed to you, then shall you sound with the trumpets; and you shall be had in remembrance before the Lord, and you shall be saved from your enemies. 10 And in the days of your gladness, and in your feasts, and in your new moons, you shall sound with the trumpets at your whole burnt offerings, and at the sacrifices of your peace offerings; and there shall be a memorial for you before your God: I am the Lord your God. 11 And it came to pass in the second year, in the second month, on the twentieth day of the month, that the cloud went up from the tabernacle of witness. 12 And the children of Israel set forward with their baggage in the Wilderness of Sinai; and the cloud rested in the Wilderness of Paran. 13 And the first rank departed by the word of the Lord by the hand of Moses. 14 And they first set in motion the order of the camp of the children of Judah with their host; and over their host was Nahshon, son of Amminadab. 15 And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Issachar was Nathanel son of Zuar. 16 And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Zebulun was Eliab the son of Helon. 17 And they shall take down the tabernacle, and the sons of Gershon shall set forward, and the sons of Merari, who bear the tabernacle. 18 And the order of the camp of Reuben set forward with their host; and over their host was Elisur the son of Sediur. 19 And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Simeon was Shelumiel son of Zuri-shaddai. 20 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Gad was Eliasaph the son of Deuel. 21 And the sons of Kohath shall set forward bearing the holy things, and the others shall set up the tabernacle until they arrive. 22 And the order of the camp of Ephraim shall set forward with their forces; and over their forces was Elishama the son of Sammihud. 23 And over the forces of the tribes of the sons of Manasseh was Gamalliel the son of Pedahzur. 24 And over the forces of the tribe of the children of Benjamin was Abidan the son of Gideoni. 25 And the order of the camp of the sons of Dan shall set forward the last of all the camps, with their forces: and over their forces was Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai. 26 And over the forces of the tribe of the sons of Asher was Pagiel the son of Ocran. 27 And over the forces of the tribe of the sons of Naphtali was Ahira the son of Enan. 28 These are the armies of the children of Israel; and they set forward with their forces. 29 And Moses said to Hobab the son of Jethro the Midianite, the father-in-law of Moses, We are going forward to the place concerning which the Lord said, This will I give to you: Come with us, and we will do you good, for the Lord has spoken good concerning Israel. 30 And he said to him, I will not go, but I will go to my land and to my kindred. 31 And he said, Leave us not, because you have been with us in the wilderness, and you shall be an elder among us. 32 And it shall come to pass if you will go with us, it shall even come to pass that in whatsoever things the Lord shall do us good, we will also do you good. 33 And they departed from the mount of the Lord a three days' journey; and the ark of the covenant of the Lord went before them, a three days' journey to provide rest for them. 34 And the cloud overshadowed them by day, when they departed from the camp. 35 And it came to pass when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Arise, O Lord, and let Your enemies be scattered: let all that hate You flee. 36 And in the resting he said, Turn again, O Lord, the thousands and tens of thousands in Israel.
