Numbers 10:29-36

29And Moses said to Hobab the son of aReuel the Midianite, Mosesfather-in-law, “We are setting out for the place of which the  Lord said, b‘I will give it to you.’ Come with us, and we will do good to you, for cthe  Lord has promised good to Israel.” 30But he said to him, “I will not go. I will depart to my own land and to my kindred.” 31And he said, “Please do not leave us, for you know where we should camp in the wilderness, and you will serve das eyes for us. 32And if you do go with us, ewhatever good the  Lord will do to us, the same will we do to you.”

33So they set out from fthe mount of the  Lord three daysjourney. And the ark of the covenant of the  Lord went before them three daysjourney, to seek out ga resting place for them. 34 hAnd the cloud of the  Lord was over them by day, whenever they set out from the camp.

35And whenever the ark set out, Moses said, iArise, O  Lord, and let your enemies be scattered, and let those who hate you flee before you.” 36And when it rested, he said, “Return, O  Lord, to the ten thousand thousands of Israel.”
