Números 10

1 And the Lorde spake vnto Moses, saying,

2 Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps.

3 And when they shall blowe with them, all the Congregation shall assemble to thee before the doore of the Tabernacle of the Cogregation.

4 But if they blowe with one, then the princes, or heades ouer the thousandes of Israel shall come vnto thee.

5 When ye blow an alarm, then the camps that lie on the east parts shall go forward.

6 When ye blow an alarm the second time, then the camps that lie on the south side shall take their journey: they shall blow an alarm for their journeys.

7 But in assembling the Congregation, ye shall blowe without an alarme.

8 And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow with the trumpets; and they shall be to you for an ordinance for ever throughout your generations.

9 And when ye goe to warre in your lande against the enemie that vexeth you, ye shall blowe an alarme with the trumpets, and ye shall bee remembred before the Lorde your God, and shalbe saued from your enemies.

10 Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I [am] the LORD your God.

11 And in the seconde yeere, in the seconde moneth, and in the twentieth day of the moneth the cloude was taken vp from the Tabernacle of the Testimonie.

12 And ye children of Israel departed on their iourneys out of the desart of Sinai, & the cloud rested in the wildernesse of Paran.

13 And they first took their journey according to the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

14 In the first place went the standerd of the hoste of the children of Iudah, according to their armies: and Nahshon the sonne of Amminabad was ouer his band.

15 And ouer the band of the tribe of the children of Issachar was Nethaneel ye sonne of Zuar.

16 And ouer the band of the tribe of the children of Zebulun was Eliab the sonne of Helon.

17 And the tabernacle was taken down; and the sons of Gershon and the sons of Merari set forward, bearing the tabernacle.

18 After, departed the standerd of the hoste of Reuben, according to their armies, and ouer his band was Elizur the sonne of Shedeur.

19 And ouer the band of the tribe of ye children of Simeon was Shelumiel the sonne of Shurishaddai.

20 And ouer the bande of the tribe of ye children of Gad was Eliasaph the sonne of Deuel.

21 And the Kohathites set forward, bearing the sanctuary: and [the other] did set up the tabernacle against they came.

22 Then the standerd of the hoste of the children of Ephraim went forward according to their armies, and ouer his bande was Elishama the sonne of Ammiud.

23 And ouer the band of the tribe of ye sonnes of Manasseh was Gamliel the sonne of Pedazur.

24 And ouer the band of ye tribe of the sonnes of Beniamin was Abidan the sonne of Gideoni.

25 And the standard of the camp of the children of Dan set forward, [which was] the rereward of all the camps throughout their hosts: and over his host [was] Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai.

26 And ouer the bande of the tribe of the children of Asher was Pagiel the sonne of Ocran.

27 And ouer the bande of the tribe of the children of Naphtali was Ahira ye sonne of Enan.

28 Thus [were] the journeyings of the children of Israel according to their armies, when they set forward.

29 And 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 you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good: for the LORD hath spoken good concerning Israel.

30 And he answered him, I will not goe: but I will depart to mine owne countrey, and to my kindred.

31 Then he sayd, I pray thee, leaue vs not: for thou knowest our camping places in the wildernesse: therefore thou mayest be our guide.

32 And if thou go with vs, what goodnes the Lord shall shew vnto vs, the same will we shewe vnto thee.

33 And 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, to search out a resting place for them.

34 And the cloude of the Lord was vpon the by day, when they went out of the campe.

35 And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee.

36 And when it rested, hee sayde, Returne, O Lord, to the many thousands of Israel.
