1 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
2 'Make yourself two trumpets; make them of beaten silver, so that you can use them for summoning the community, and for sounding the order to break camp.
Isa 1:13 Joel 1:14 Ps 81:3 2Chr 5:12 2Kgs 12:13 Eph 4:5 Exod 25:18
3 Whenever they are sounded, the whole community must gather round you, at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.
Jer 4:5 Joel 2:15-16
4 But if only one trumpet is sounded, then only the leaders, the heads of Israel's thousands, must gather round you.
Exod 18:21 Num 7:2 Deut 1:15 Num 1:4-16
5 'When the trumpet blast is accompanied by a battle cry, the encampments pitched to the east will set out.
Num 2:3-9 Num 10:14 Isa 58:1 Joel 2:1 Num 10:6-7
6 At the second blast accompanied by a battle cry, the encampments pitched to the south will set out. For breaking camp, the trumpet blast will be accompanied by a battle cry,
Num 2:10-16 Num 10:18
7 but for assembling the community the trumpets will be sounded without battle cry.
Joel 2:1 Num 10:3-4
8 The Aaronite priests will sound the trumpets; this is a perpetual decree for you and your descendants.
Num 31:6 1Chr 15:24 1Chr 16:6 2Chr 13:12-15 Josh 6:4-16
9 'When in your country you go to war against an enemy who is oppressing you, you will sound trumpets with a battle cry, and Yahweh your God will remember you, and you will be delivered from your enemies.
1Sam 10:18 Gen 8:1 Judg 2:18 Ps 106:4 Ps 106:42 2Chr 13:14 Josh 6:5
10 At your festivals, solemnities and new-moon feasts, you will sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and communion sacrifices, so that they recall you to the remembrance of your God. I am Yahweh your God.'
Ps 81:3 1Chr 15:24 2Chr 5:12-13 2Chr 7:6 2Chr 29:26 2Chr 29:28 Ezra 3:10
11 In the second year, in the second month, on the twentieth day of the month, the cloud rose from where the Dwelling of the Testimony was,
Exod 40:2 Exod 40:17 Num 1:1 Num 9:1 Num 9:5 Num 9:11 Num 9:17-23
12 and the Israelites set out, in marching order, from the desert of Sinai. The cloud came to rest in the desert of Paran.
Gen 21:21 Num 12:16 Deut 1:1 Exod 19:1-2 Num 1:1 Num 9:5 Num 13:3
13 These were the men who set out in the vanguard, at Yahweh's order through Moses:

29 Moses said to Hobab son of Reuel the Midianite, his father-in-law, 'We are setting out for the country of which Yahweh has said: I shall give it to you. Come with us, and we will treat you well, for Yahweh has promised good things for Israel.'
Gen 12:7 Exod 2:18 Exod 3:1 Judg 4:11 Exod 6:7-8 Exod 3:8 Gen 32:12
30 'I will not come with you,' he replied, 'but shall go to my own country and kin.'

32 If you come with us, we shall share with you whatever blessings Yahweh gives us.'

33 They set out from Yahweh's mountain and travelled for three days, while the ark of the covenant of Yahweh preceded them on the three-day journey, searching out a place for them to halt.
Deut 1:33 Exod 3:1 1Sam 4:3 Deut 9:9 Deut 31:26 Exod 19:3 Exod 24:17-18
34 In the daytime, Yahweh's cloud was over them, once they had broken camp.
Exod 13:21-22 Neh 9:12 Neh 9:19 Num 9:15-23 Ps 105:39
35 Whenever the ark set out, Moses would say: Rise, Yahweh, may your enemies be scattered and those who hate you flee at your approach!
Ps 68:1-2 Deut 7:10 Deut 32:41 Isa 17:12-14 Isa 51:9 Ps 132:8
36 And when it halted, he would say: Come back, Yahweh, to the countless thousands of Israel!
Deut 1:10 Gen 24:60 Isa 63:17 Ps 90:13-17
