10 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 2 “Make two silver trumpets for yourself; you shall make them of hammered work; you shall use them for acalling the congregation and for directing the movement of the camps. 3 When bthey blow both of them, all the congregation shall gather before you at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. 4 But if they blow only one, then the leaders, the cheads of the divisions of Israel, shall gather to you. 5 When you sound the dadvance, ethe camps that lie on the east side shall then begin their journey. 6 When you sound the advance the second time, then the camps that lie fon the south side shall begin their journey; they shall sound the call for them to begin their journeys. 7 And when the assembly is to be gathered together, gyou shall blow, but not hsound the advance. 8 iThe sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow the trumpets; and these shall be to you as an 1ordinance forever throughout your generations.
9 j“When you go to war in your land against the enemy who koppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, and you will be lremembered before the Lord your God, and you will be saved from your enemies. 10 Also min the day of your gladness, in your appointed feasts, and at the beginning of your months, you shall blow the trumpets over your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; and they shall be na memorial for you before your God: I am the Lord your God.”
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
