Bamidbar 10 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

10 And Hashem spoke unto Moshe, saying,

Make thee two tzotzerot (trumpets) of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them; that thou mayest use them for the calling of the Edah, and for the setting out of the machanot.

And when they shall sound them, Kol HaEdah shall assemble themselves to thee at the entrance of the Ohel Mo’ed.

And if they sound but with one, then the Nasi’im, which are heads of Yisroel’s thousands, shall gather themselves unto thee.

When ye sound a teruah, then the machanot that camp on the east shall go forward.

When ye sound a teruah the second time, then the machanot that camp on the south shall set out; they shall sound a teruah for their settings out.

But when the Kahal is to be gathered together, ye shall sound it, but ye shall not sound a teruah.

And the Bnei Aharon, the kohanim, shall sound the tzotzerot; and they shall be to you for a chukkat olam throughout your dorot.

And if ye go into milchamah (battle) in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall sound a blast on the tzotzerot; and ye shall be remembered before Hashem Eloheichem, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.

10 Also in the day of your simcha, and in your moadim, and in the Rosh-Chodesh, ye shall sound a blast on the tzotzerot over your olot, and over the zevakhim of your shelamim; that they may be to you for a memorial reminder before Eloheichem: I am Hashem Eloheichem.

11 And it came to pass on the twentieth day of the second month, in the second year, that the Anan was lifted up from off the Mishkan HaEdut.

12 And the Bnei Yisroel set out in their travels from the Midbar Sinai; and the Anan rested in the Midbar Paran.

13 And they first set out according to the mouth of Hashem by the hand of Moshe.

14 First in place went the degel of the machaneh of the Bnei Yehudah according to their tzivos; and over his division was Nachshon ben Amminadav.

15 And over the division of the tribe of the Bnei Yissakhar was Netanel ben Tzuar.

16 And over the division of the tribe of the Bnei Zevulun was Eliav ben Helon.

17 And the Mishkan was taken down; and the Bnei Gershon and the Bnei Merari set out, bearing the Mishkan.

18 And the degel of the machaneh of Reuven set out according to their tzivos (armies); and over his division was Elitzur ben Shedeur.

19 And over the division of the tribe of the Bnei Shim’on was Shelumiel ben Tzurishaddai.

20 And over the division of the tribe of the Bnei Gad was Elyasaph ben Deuel.

21 And the descendants of Kehat set out, bearing the Mikdash; and they would erect the Mishkan before their arrival.

22 And the degel of the machaneh of the Bnei Ephrayim set out according to their tzivos (armies); and over his division was Elishama ben Ammihud.

23 And over the division of the tribe of the Bnei Menasheh was Gamli’el ben Pedahtzur.

24 And over the division of the tribe of the Bnei Binyamin was Avidan ben Gideoni.

25 And the degel of the machaneh of the Bnei Dan set out, which formed the rear guard of all the machanot throughout their tzivos; and over his division was Achiezer ben Ammishaddai.

26 And over the division of the tribe of the Bnei Asher was Pagiel ben Ochran.

27 And over the division of the tribe of the Bnei Naphtali was Achira ben Enan.

28 Thus was the order of march of the Bnei Yisroel according to their tzivos (armies), when they set out.

29 And Moshe said unto Chovav ben Reuel the Midyani, Moshe’s khoten (father-in-law), We are traveling unto the place of which Hashem said, I will give it you: Come thou with us, and we will do thee good; for Hashem hath promised tov concerning Yisroel.

30 And he said unto him, I will not go; but I will depart to mine own land, and to my moledet.

31 And he [Moshe] said, Leave us not, please; forasmuch as thou hast da’as how we are to encamp in the midbar, and thou mayest be to us as eyes.

32 And it shall be, if thou go with us, yea, it shall be, that what tov Hashem shall do unto us, the same will we share with thee.

33 And they departed from the Mountain of Hashem three days’ journey; the Aron Brit Hashem went before them in the three days’ derech, to search out a menuchah for them.

34 And the Anan of Hashem was upon them by day, when they set out from the machaneh.

35 And it came to pass, when the Aron set out, that Moshe said, Rise up, Hashem, and let Thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate Thee flee before Thee.

36 And when it rested, he said, Return, Hashem, unto the countless thousands of Yisroel.

Numbers 10 New International Version (NIV)

The Silver Trumpets

10 The Lord said to Moses: “Make two trumpets of hammered silver, and use them for calling the community together and for having the camps set out. When both are sounded, the whole community is to assemble before you at the entrance to the tent of meeting. If only one is sounded, the leaders—the heads of the clans of Israel—are to assemble before you. When a trumpet blast is sounded, the tribes camping on the east are to set out. At the sounding of a second blast, the camps on the south are to set out. The blast will be the signal for setting out. To gather the assembly, blow the trumpets, but not with the signal for setting out.

“The sons of Aaron, the priests, are to blow the trumpets. This is to be a lasting ordinance for you and the generations to come. When you go into battle in your own land against an enemy who is oppressing you, sound a blast on the trumpets. Then you will be remembered by the Lord your God and rescued from your enemies. 10 Also at your times of rejoicing—your appointed festivals and New Moon feasts—you are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, and they will be a memorial for you before your God. I am the Lord your God.

The Israelites Leave Sinai

11 On the twentieth day of the second month of the second year, the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle of the covenant law. 12 Then the Israelites set out from the Desert of Sinai and traveled from place to place until the cloud came to rest in the Desert of Paran. 13 They set out, this first time, at the Lord’s command through Moses.

14 The divisions of the camp of Judah went first, under their standard. Nahshon son of Amminadab was in command. 15 Nethanel son of Zuar was over the division of the tribe of Issachar, 16 and Eliab son of Helon was over the division of the tribe of Zebulun. 17 Then the tabernacle was taken down, and the Gershonites and Merarites, who carried it, set out.

18 The divisions of the camp of Reuben went next, under their standard. Elizur son of Shedeur was in command. 19 Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai was over the division of the tribe of Simeon, 20 and Eliasaph son of Deuel was over the division of the tribe of Gad. 21 Then the Kohathites set out, carrying the holy things. The tabernacle was to be set up before they arrived.

22 The divisions of the camp of Ephraim went next, under their standard. Elishama son of Ammihud was in command. 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 Finally, as the rear guard for all the units, the divisions of the camp of Dan set out under their standard. Ahiezer son of Ammishaddai was in command. 26 Pagiel son of Okran 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 Israelite divisions as they set out.

29 Now Moses said to Hobab son of Reuel the Midianite, Moses’ father-in-law, “We are setting out for the place about which the Lord said, ‘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 He answered, “No, I will not go; I am going back to my own land and my own people.

31 But Moses said, “Please do not leave us. You know where we should camp in the wilderness, and you can be our eyes. 32 If you come with us, we will share with you whatever good things the Lord gives us.

33 So they set out from the mountain of the Lord and traveled for three days. The ark of the covenant of the Lord went before them during those three days to find them a place to rest. 34 The cloud of the Lord was over them by day when they set out from the camp.

35 Whenever the ark set out, Moses said,

“Rise up, Lord!
    May your enemies be scattered;
    may your foes flee before you.

36 Whenever it came to rest, he said,

“Return, Lord,
    to the countless thousands of Israel.
