Numbers 10

CHAPTER 10

The Signal of the Trumpets

1And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2Make for yourself two trumpets of silver! A hammered work you shall make them, and they will be for you to call the congregation, and to lift away the camps. 3And you shall trump with them, and bring together all the congregation unto the door of the tent of the testimony. 4But if [2with 3one sound 1they should trump], then shall come forward to you all the rulers of the heads of Israel. 5And you shall trump a signal, and shall lift away the camps camping according to the east. 6And you shall trump for a signal a second time, and shall lift away the camps camping according to the south. And you shall trump [2signal 1a third], and shall lift away the camps camping by the west. And you shall trump [2signal 1a fourth], and shall lift away the camps camping towards the north. [2a signal 1You shall trump] at their departure. 7And whenever you should bring together the congregation, you shall trump, but not a signal. 8And the sons of Aaron the priests shall trump with the trumpets; and it will be to you [2law 1an eternal] unto your generations. 9But if you should go forth to war in your land against the opponents opposing you, then you shall signify with the trumpets; and you will be called to mind before the  lord your God, and you shall be preserved from your enemies. 10And in the days of your gladness, and in your holidays, and in your new moons, you shall trump with the trumpets at the whole burnt-offerings, and at the sacrifices of your deliverance offerings. And it shall be to you for a remembrance before your God. I am the  lord your God.

The Cloud Ascends

11And it came to pass in the [2year 1second], in the [2month 1second], the twentieth of the month, [3ascended 1the 2cloud] from the tent of the testimony. 12And [4lifted away 1the 2sons 3of Israel] with their chattel in the wilderness of Sinai. And [3stopped 1the 2cloud] in the wilderness of Paran. 13And [2lifted away 1the first ranks] by the voice of the  lord by the hand of Moses. 14And they lifted away in order, the camp of the sons of Judah first with their force. And over their force was Nahshon son of Amminadab. 15And over the force of the tribe of the sons of Issachar was Nethaneel son of Zuar. 16And over the force of the tribe of the sons of Zebulun was Eliab son of Helon. 17And they shall lower the tent, and [4shall lift away 1the 2sons 3of Gershon], and the sons of Merari, the ones carrying the tent. 18And lifted away in order the camp of Reuben with their force. And over their force was Elizur son of Shedeur. 19And over the force of the tribe of the sons of Simeon was Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai. 20And over the force of the tribe of the sons of Gad was Eliasaph the son of Reuel. 21And [4shall lift away 1the 2sons 3of Kohath] carrying the holy things. And they shall set up the tent until when they should arrive. 22And shall lift away in order the camp of Ephraim with their force. And over his force was Elishama son of Ammihud. 23And over the force of the tribe of the sons of Manasseh was Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur. 24And over the force of the tribe of the sons of Benjamin was Abidan the son of Gideoni. 25And shall lift away in order the camp of the sons of Dan last of all the camps with their force. And over their force was Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai. 26And over the force of the tribe of the sons of Asher was Pagiel son of Ocran. 27And over the force of the tribe of the sons of Naphtali was Ahira son of Enan. 28These are the militaries of the sons of Israel. And they lifted away with their force. 29And Moses said to Hobab son of Raguel the Midianite father-in-law of Moses, We are lifting away unto the place which the  lord said, This I will give to you. Come with us and [2good 3for you 1we will do], for the  lord spoke good concerning Israel. 30And he said to him, I shall not go; but unto my land, and unto my family I will go. 31And he said, You should not abandon us, because you were with us in the wilderness, and you will be among us as an ambassador. 32And it shall be if you should go with us, that it shall be the good things that whatever as many as the  lord shall do good for us, also [2good 3for you 1we shall do]. 33And they lifted away from the mountain of the  lord, a journey of three days. And the ark of covenant of the  lord went forth in front of them, a journey of three days, to survey themselves a rest. 34And the cloud of the  lord came to pass shadowing over them by day in their lifting away from out of the camp. 35And it came to pass in the lifting away the ark, that Moses said, Awaken! O  lord, and let [2be dispersed 1your enemies]! and let flee all the ones detesting you! 36And in the resting, he said, Turn! O  lord, thousands of myriads in Israel.
