10 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Make thee two trumpets of silver; of aa whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the bcalling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps. 3 And when cthey shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 4 And if they blow but with one trumpet, then the princes, which are dheads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee. 5 When ye blow ean alarm, then fthe camps that lie on the east parts shall go forward. 6 When ye blow ean alarm the second time, then the camps that lie gon the south side shall take their journey: they shall blow ean alarm for their journeys. 7 But when the congregation is to be gathered together, ye shall blow, but ye shall not hsound an alarm. 8 iAnd 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 kif ye go to war in your land against the enemy that loppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be mremembered before the Lord your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies. 10 Also nin the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and oin 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.

29 And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of iRaguel the Midianite, Moses’ father in law, We are journeying unto the place of which the Lord said, kI will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good: for lthe Lord hath spoken good concerning Israel. 30 And he said unto him, I will not go; but I will depart to mine own land, and to my kindred. 31 And he said, Leave us not, I pray thee; forasmuch as thou knowest how we are to encamp in the wilderness, and thou mayest be to us minstead of eyes. 32 And it shall be, if thou go with us, yea, it shall be, that nwhat goodness the Lord shall do unto us, the same will we do unto thee.
33 And they departed from othe mount of the Lord three days’ journey: and the ark of the covenant of the Lord pwent before them in the three days’ journey, to search out qa resting place for them. 34 And rthe cloud of the Lord was upon them by day, when they went out of the camp. 35 And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said,
sRise up, Lord, and let thine enemies be scattered;
And let them that hate thee flee before thee.
Return, O Lord, unto the †many thousands of Israel.
