Numbers 10
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And YHWH speaks to Moses, saying, 2“Make two trumpets of silver for yourself; you make them of beaten work, and they have been for you for the convocation of the congregation, and for the journeying of the camps; 3and they have blown with them, and all the congregation has assembled to you at the opening of the Tent of Meeting. 4And if they blow with one, then the princes, heads of the thousands of Israel, have assembled to you; 5and you have blown—a shout, and the camps which are encamping eastward have journeyed. 6And you have blown—a second shout, and the camps which are encamping southward have journeyed; they blow a shout for their journeys. 7And in the assembling of the assembly you blow, and do not shout; 8and sons of Aaron, the priests, blow with the trumpets; and they have been for a continuous statute to you throughout your generations. 9And when you go into battle in your land against the adversary who is distressing you, then you have shouted with the trumpets, and you have been remembered before your God YHWH, and you have been saved from your enemies. 10And in the day of your gladness, and in your appointed times, and in the beginnings of your months, you have also blown with the trumpets over your burnt-offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace-offerings, and they have been for a memorial to you before your God; I [am] your God YHWH.”

11And it comes to pass, in the second year, in the second month, on the twentieth of the month, the cloud has gone up from off the Dwelling Place of the Testimony, 12and the sons of Israel journey in their journeys from the wilderness of Sinai, and the cloud dwells in the wilderness of Paran; 13and they journey at first by the command of YHWH in the hand of Moses. 14And the standard of the camp of the sons of Judah journeys in the first [place], by their hosts, and over its host [is] Nahshon son of Amminadab. 15And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Issachar [is] Nathaneel son of Zuar. 16And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Zebulun [is] Eliab son of Helon.

17And the Dwelling Place has been taken down, and the sons of Gershon and the sons of Merari have journeyed, carrying the Dwelling Place. 18And the standard of the camp of Reuben has journeyed, by their hosts, and over its host [is] Elizur son of Shedeur. 19And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Simeon [is] Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai. 20And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Gad [is] Eliasaph son of Deuel.

21And the Kohathites have journeyed, carrying the Dwelling Place, and the [others] have raised up the Dwelling Place until their coming in. 22And the standard of the camp of the sons of Ephraim has journeyed, by their hosts, and over its host [is] Elishama son of Ammihud. 23And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Manasseh [is] Gamalial son of Pedahzur. 24And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Benjamin [is] Abidan son of Gideoni.

25And the standard of the camp of the sons of Dan has journeyed (rearward to all the camps), by their hosts, and over its host [is] Ahiezer son of Ammishaddai. 26And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Asher [is] Pagiel son of Ocran. 27And over the host of the tribe of the sons of Naphtali [is] Ahira son of Enan. 28These [are] the journeys of the sons of Israel by their hosts when they journey.

29And Moses says to Hobab son of Raguel the Midianite, father-in-law of Moses, “We are journeying to the place of which YHWH has said, I give it to you; go with us, and we have done good to you, for YHWH has spoken good concerning Israel.” 30And he says to him, “I do not go; but I go to my land and to my family.” 31And he says, “Please do not forsake us, because you have known our encamping in the wilderness, and you have been to us for eyes; 32and it has come to pass, when you go with us—indeed, it has come to pass—that good which YHWH does kindly with us, we have done it kindly to you.”

33And they journey from the mountain of YHWH a journey of three days; and the Ark of the Covenant of YHWH is journeying before them [for] the journey of three days, to spy out a resting place for them; 34and the cloud of YHWH [is] on them by day, in their journeying from the camp.

35And it comes to pass in the journeying of the Ark, that Moses says, “Rise, O YHWH, and Your enemies are scattered, and those hating You flee from Your presence.”

36And in its resting he says, “Return, O YHWH, [to] the myriads, the thousands of Israel.”
