Organization of the Camps

1Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,
  2“The children of Israel are to encamp every man by his own standard with the banners of their fathers’ houses; at a distance from the Tent of Meeting they are to encamp around it:
 

3“Those who encamp on the east side toward the sunrise will be of the standard of the camp of Judah, according to their divisions: and the leader of the children of Judah is to be Nahshon the son of Amminadab.
  4His division and those who were numbered of them were 74,600.
  5Those who encamp next to him will be the tribe of Issachar: and the leader of the children of Issachar is to be Nethanel the son of Zuar.
  6His division and those who were numbered of it were 54,400.
  7The tribe of Zebulun: and the leader of the children of Zebulun is to be Eliab the son of Helon.
  8His division and those who were numbered of it, were 57,400.
  9All who were numbered of the camp of Judah were 186,400, according to their divisions. They will set out first.
 

10“On the south side will be the standard of the camp of Reuben according to their divisions. The leader of the children of Reuben is to be Elizur the son of Shedeur.
  11His division and those who were numbered of it were 46,500.
  12Those who encamp next to him will be the tribe of Simeon. The leader of the children of Simeon is to be Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.
  13His division and those who were numbered of them were 59,300.
  14The tribe of Gad: and the leader of the children of Gad is to be Eliasaph the son of Reuel.
  15His division and those who were numbered of them were 45,650.
  16All who were numbered of the camp of Reuben were 151,450, according to their armies. They will set out second.
 

17“Then the Tent of Meeting will set out with the camp of the Levites in the middle of the camps. As they encamp, so will they set out, every man in his place by their standards.
 

18“On the west side will be the standard of the camp of Ephraim according to their divisions, and the leader of the children of Ephraim is to be Elishama the son of Ammihud.
  19His division and those who were numbered of them were 40,500.
  20Next to him will be the tribe of Manasseh: and the leader of the children of Manasseh is to be Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.
  21His division and those who were numbered of them were 32,200.
  22The tribe of Benjamin: and the leader of the children of Benjamin is to be Abidan the son of Gideoni.
  23His army and those who were numbered of them were 35,400.
  24All who were numbered of the camp of Ephraim were 108,100, according to their divisions. They will set out third.
 

25“On the north side will be the standard of the camp of Dan according to their divisions: and the leader of the children of Dan is to be Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai.
  26His division and those who were numbered of them were 62,700.
  27Those who encamp next to him will be the tribe of Asher: and the leader of the children of Asher is to be Pagiel the son of Ochran.
  28His division and those who were numbered of them were 41,500.
  29The tribe of Naphtali: and the leader of the children of Naphtali is to be Ahira the son of Enan.
  30His division and those who were numbered of them were 53,400.
  31All who were numbered of the camp of Dan were 157,600. They will set out last by their standards.”
 

32These are those who were numbered of the children of Israel by their fathers’ houses. All who were numbered of the camps according to their armies were 603,550.
  33But the Levites were not numbered among the children of Israel, as Yahweh commanded Moses.

34Thus the children of Israel did. According to all that Yahweh commanded Moses, so they encamped by their standards, and so they set out, everyone by their families, according to their fathers’ houses.
