2 And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying: a“Everyone of the children of Israel shall camp by his own 1standard, beside the emblems of his father’s house; they shall camp bsome distance from the tabernacle of meeting. On the ceast side, toward the rising of the sun, those of the standard of the forces with Judah shall camp according to their armies; and dNahshon the son of Amminadab shall be the leader of the children of Judah.” And his army was numbered at seventy-four thousand six hundred.

17 h“And the tabernacle of meeting shall move out with the 5camp of the Levites iin the middle of the 6camps; as they camp, so they shall move out, everyone in his place, by their 7standards.

18 “On the west side shall be the standard of the forces with Ephraim according to their armies, and the leader of the children of Ephraim shall be Elishama the son of Ammihud.” 19 And his army was numbered at forty thousand five hundred.

29 “Then comes the tribe of Naphtali, and the leader of the children of Naphtali shall be Ahira the son of Enan.” 30 And his army was numbered at fifty-three thousand four hundred. 31 “All who were numbered of the forces with Dan, one hundred and fifty-seven thousand six hundred—kthey shall 1break camp last, with their 2standards.”

32 These are the ones who were numbered of the children of Israel by their fathers’ houses. lAll who were numbered according to their armies of the forces were six hundred and three thousand five hundred and fifty. 33 But mthe Levites were not numbered among the children of Israel, just as the Lord commanded Moses.

34 Thus the children of Israel ndid according to all that the Lord commanded Moses; oso they camped by their 3standards and so they broke camp, each one by his family, according to their fathers’ houses.
