Numbers 2:1-34
1
The LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron:
2
"The Israelites are to camp under their respective banners beside the flags of their ancestral houses. They are to camp around the tent of meeting at a distance [from it]:
3
Judah's military divisions will camp on the east side toward the sunrise under their banner. The leader of the descendants of Judah is Nahshon son of Amminadab.
4
His military division numbers 74,600.

The tribe of Issachar will camp next to it. The leader of the Issacharites is Nethanel son of Zuar.

11
His military division numbers 46,500.
12
The tribe of Simeon will camp next to it. The leader of the Simeonites is Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai.
13
His military division numbers 59,300.
14
The tribe of Gad [will be next]. The leader of the Gadites is Eliasaph son of Deuel.
15
His military division numbers 45,650.
16
The total number in their military divisions who belong to Reuben's encampment is 151,450; they will move out second.
17
The tent of meeting is to move out with the Levites' camp, which is in the middle of the camps. They are to move out just as they camp, each in his place, with their banners.
18
Ephraim's military divisions will camp on the west side under their banner. The leader of the Ephraimites is Elishama son of Ammihud.
19
His military division numbers 40,500.
20

22
The tribe of Benjamin [will be next]. The leader of the Benjaminites is Abidan son of Gideoni.
23

32
These are the Israelites registered by their ancestral houses. The total number in the camps by their military divisions is 603,550.
33
But the Levites were not registered among the Israelites, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.
34
The Israelites did everything the LORD commanded Moses; they camped by their banners in this way and moved out the same way, each man by his clan and by his ancestral house.
Numbers 10:1-36
1
The LORD spoke to Moses:
2
"Make two trumpets of hammered silver to summon the community and have the camps set out.
3
When both are sounded in long blasts, the entire community is to gather before you at the entrance to the tent of meeting.
4
However, if one is sounded, only the leaders, the heads of Israel's clans, are to gather before you.
5
"When you sound short blasts, the camps pitched on the east are to set out.
6
When you sound short blasts a second time, the camps pitched on the south are to set out. Short blasts are to be sounded for them to set out.
7
When calling the assembly together, you are to sound long blasts, not short ones.
8
The sons of Aaron, the priests, are to sound the trumpets. Your use of these is a permanent statute throughout your generations.
9
"When you enter into battle in your land against an adversary who is attacking you, sound short blasts on the trumpets, and you will be remembered before the LORD your God and be delivered from your enemies.
10
You are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and your fellowship sacrifices and on your joyous occasions, your appointed festivals, and the beginning of each of your months. They will serve as a reminder for you before your God: I am the LORD your God."
11
During the second year, in the second month on the twentieth [day] of the month, the cloud was lifted up above the tabernacle of the testimony.
12
The Israelites traveled on from the Wilderness of Sinai, moving from one place to the next until the cloud stopped in the Wilderness of Paran.
13
They set out for the first time according to the LORD's command through Moses.
14
The military divisions of the camp of Judah with their banner set out first, and Nahshon son of Amminadab was over Judah's divisions.
15
Nethanel son of Zuar was over the division of the Issachar tribe,
16
and Eliab son of Helon was over the division of the Zebulun tribe.
17
The tabernacle was then taken down, and the Gershonites and the Merarites set out, transporting the tabernacle.
18
The military divisions of the camp of Reuben with their banner set out, and Elizur son of Shedeur was over Reuben's division.
19
Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai was over the division of Simeon's tribe,
20
and Eliasaph son of Deuel was over the division of the tribe of Gad.
21
The Kohathites then set out, transporting the holy objects; the tabernacle was to be set up before their arrival.
22
Next the military divisions of the camp of Ephraim with their banner set out, and Elishama son of Ammihud was over Ephraim's division.
23
Gamaliel son of Pedahzur was over the division of the tribe of Manasseh,
24
and Abidan son of Gideoni was over the division of the tribe of Benjamin.
25
The military divisions of the camp of Dan with their banner set out, serving as rearguard for all the camps, and Ahiezer son of Ammishaddai was over Dan's division.
26
Pagiel son of Ochran was over the division of the tribe of Asher,
27
and Ahira son of Enan was over the division of the tribe of Naphtali.
28
This was the order of march for the Israelites by their military divisions as they set out.
29
Moses said to Hobab, son of Moses' father-in-law Reuel the Midianite: "We're setting out for the place the LORD promised: 'I will give it to you.' Come with us, and we will treat you well, for the LORD has promised good things to Israel."
30
But he replied to him, "I don't want to go. Instead, I will go to my own land and my relatives."
31
"Please don't leave us," Moses said, "since you know where we should camp in the wilderness, and you can serve as our eyes.
32
If you come with us, whatever good the LORD does for us we will do for you."
33
They set out from the mountain of the LORD on a three-day journey to seek a resting place for them, with the ark of the LORD's covenant traveling ahead of them for the three days.
34
Meanwhile, the cloud of the LORD was over them by day when they set out from the camp.
35
Whenever the ark set out, Moses would say: Arise, LORD! Let Your enemies be scattered, and those who hate You flee from Your presence.
36
When it came to rest, he would say: Return, LORD, to the countless thousands of Israel.
