1 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 spoke to Mosheh, saying,
2 “Make two silver trumpets for yourself, make them of beaten work. And you shall use them for calling the congregation and for breaking camp.
3 “And when they blow both of them, all the congregation shall meet before you at the door of the Tent of Appointment.
4 “And if they blow one, then the leaders, the heads of the thousands of Yisra’ĕl, shall gather to you.
5 “And when you blow a shout, the camps that lie on the east side shall depart.
6 “And when you blow a shout the second time, then the camps that lie on the south side shall depart – they blow a shout for them to depart.
7 “And when the assembly is to be assembled, you blow, but do not shout.
8 “And the sons of Aharon, the kohenim, blow with the trumpets. And it shall be to you for a Law forever throughout your generations.
9 “And when you go into battle in your land against the enemy that distresses you, then you shall shout with the trumpets, and you shall be remembered before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim, and you shall be saved from your enemies.
10 “And in the day of your gladness, and in your Appointed Times, and at the beginning of your months, you shall blow the trumpets over your burnt offerings and over your peace offerings. And they shall be a remembrance for you before your Elohim. I am 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim.”
11 And it came to be on the twentieth day of the second month, in the second year, that the cloud was taken up from above the Mishkan of the Witness.
12 And the children of Yisra’ĕl departed, journeying from the Wilderness of Sinai. And the cloud dwelt in the Wilderness of Paran.
13 Thus they departed the first time, according to the command of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 by the hand of Mosheh.
14 And the banner of the camp of the children of Yahuḏah departed first according to their divisions. And over their army was Naḥshon, son of Amminaḏaḇ.
15 And over the army of the tribe of the children of Yissasḵar was Nethan’ĕl, son of Tsu’ar.
16 And over the army of the tribe of the children of Zeḇulun was Eliyaḇ, son of Ḥĕlon.
17 And the Mishkan was taken down. And the sons of Gĕreshon and the sons of Merari departed, bearing the Mishkan.
18 And the banner of the camp of Re’uḇĕn departed according to their divisions. And over their army was Elitsur, son of Sheḏĕy’ur.
19 And over the army of the tribe of the children of Shim’on was Shelumi’ĕl, son of Tsurishaddai.
20 And over the army of the tribe of the children of Gaḏ was Elyasaph, the son of Deu’ĕl.
21 And the Qehathites departed, bearing the Miqdash, while the Mishkan was put up before they came.
22 And the banner of the camp of the children of Ephrayim departed according to their divisions. And over their army was Elishama, son of Ammihuḏ.
23 And over the army of the tribe of the children of Menashsheh was Gamli’el, son of Peḏahtsur.
24 And over the army of the tribe of the children of Binyamin was Aḇiḏan, son of Giḏ’oni.
25 Then the banner of the camp of the children of Dan, which formed the rear guard of all the camps, departed according to their divisions. And over their army was Aḥi’ezer, son of Ammishaddai.
26 And over the army of the tribe of the children of Ashĕr was Paḡ’i’ĕl, the son of Oḵran.
27 And over the army of the tribe of the children of Naphtali was Aḥira, the son of Ĕynan.
28 Such was the order of departure of the children of Yisra’ĕl, according to their divisions, when they departed.
29 And Mosheh said to Ḥoḇaḇ, the son of Re’uw’ĕl the Miḏyanite, Mosheh’s father-in-law, “We are departing for the place of which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said, ‘I give it to you.’ Come with us, and we shall do good to you, for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken good concerning Yisra’ĕl.”
30 And he replied to him, “I am not going, but I am going to my own land and to my relatives.”
31 Then he said, “Please do not leave us, because you know how we are to camp in the wilderness, and you shall be our eyes.
32 “And it shall be, when you go with us, then it shall be that whatever good 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 does to us, the same we shall do to you.”
33 So they departed from the mountain of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 on a journey of three days. And the ark of the Covenant of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 went before them for the three days’ journey, to seek out a resting place for them.
34 And the cloud of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was above them by day when they went out from the camp.
35 And it came to be, whenever the ark departed, that Mosheh said, “Rise up, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄! And let Your enemies be scattered, and let those who hate You flee before You.”
36 And when it rested, he said, “Return, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to the countless thousands of Yisra’ĕl.”
