Numbers 10
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)

1And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Make thee two trumpets of silver; of beaten work shalt thou make them that thou may use them for the convocation of the congregation and for the moving of the camp. 3And when they shall blow them, all the congregation shall join themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the testimony. 4But when they blow only one, then the princes, who are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee. 5When ye blow an alarm, then ye shall move the camp of those that are lodged towards the east. 6And when ye blow an alarm the second time, then ye shall move the camp of those that are lodged on the side of the Negev; they shall blow an alarm for their journeys. 7But when the congregation is to be gathered together, ye shall blow, but ye shall not sound an alarm. 8And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow the trumpets; and you shall have them as a perpetual statute throughout your generations. 9And when ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresses you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies. 10Also in the day of your gladness and in your solemn days and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow the trumpets over your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices of your peace, that they may be to you for a memorial before your God; I AM your God.

11And it came to pass on the twentieth day of the second month, in the second year, that the cloud was taken up from off the tabernacle of the testimony. 12And the sons of Israel moved out of the wilderness of Sinai, and the cloud rested in the wilderness of Paran. 13And they moved the first time according to the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses. 14In the first place went the standard of the camp of the sons of Judah according to their armies, and over his host was Nahshon, the son of Amminadab. 15And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Issachar was Nethaneel, the son of Zuar. 16And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Zebulun was Eliab, the son of Helon.

17And the tabernacle was already taken down, and the sons of Gershon and the sons of Merari set forward, bearing the tabernacle. 18Then the standard of the camp of Reuben set forward according to their armies, and over his host was Elizur, the son of Shedeur. 19And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Simeon was Shelumiel, the son of Zurishaddai. 20And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Gad was Eliasaph, the son of Deuel.

21Then the Kohathites set forward, bearing the sanctuary, and while they were coming, the others set up the tabernacle. 22After them the standard of the camp of the sons of Ephraim set forward according to their armies, and over his host was Elishama, the son of Ammihud. 23And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Manasseh was Gamaliel, the son of Pedahzur. 24And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Benjamin was Abidan, the son of Gideoni.

25Then the standard of the camp of the sons of Dan set forward according to their armies, gathering together all the camps, and over his host was Ahiezer, the son of Ammishaddai. 26And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Asher was Pagiel, the son of Ocran. 27And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Naphtali was Ahira, the son of Enan. 28Thus were the journeyings of the sons of Israel according to their armies when they set forward.

29Then Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite, Moses’ father-in-law, We are journeying unto the place of which the LORD said, I will give it to you. Come thou with us, and we will do thee good; for the LORD has spoken good concerning Israel. 30And he said unto him, I will not go; but I will depart to my own land and to my kindred. 31And he said, Leave us not, I pray thee; for thou knowest how we are to encamp in the wilderness, and thou shalt be to us instead of eyes. 32And it shall be, if thou go with us, that when we come into the goodness that the LORD shall do unto us, that we will do thee good.

33Thus they departed from the mount of the LORD three days’ journey, and the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them in the three days’ journey, searching out a resting place for them. 34And the cloud of the LORD was upon them by day, from when they went out of the camp.

35And it came to pass, when the ark was moved, that Moses said, Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered, and let those that hate thee flee before thee.

36And when it rested, he said, Return, O LORD, unto the ten thousands of Israel.
