← Numbers 9   Numbers 11 →         

1 And the Lord said to Moses,

2 Make two silver horns of hammered work, to be used for getting the people together and to give the sign for the moving of the tents.

3 When they are sounded, all the people are to come together to you at the door of the Tent of meeting.

4 If only one of them is sounded, then the chiefs, the heads of the thousands of Israel, are to come to you.

5 When a loud note is sounded, the tents placed on the east side are to go forward.

6 At the sound of a second loud note, the tents on the south side are to go forward: the loud note will be the sign to go forward.

7 But when all the people are to come together, the horn is to be sounded but not loudly.

8 The horns are to be sounded by the sons of Aaron, the priests; this is to be a law for you for ever, from generation to generation.

9 And if you go to war in your land against any who do you wrong, then let the loud note of the horn be sounded; and the Lord your God will keep you in mind and give you salvation from those who are against you.

10 And on days of joy and on your regular feasts and on the first day of every month, let the horns be sounded over your burned offerings and your peace-offerings; and they will put the Lord in mind of you: I am the Lord your God.

11 Now in the second year, on the twentieth day of the second month, the cloud was taken up from over the Tent of witness.

12 And the children of Israel went on their journey out of the waste land of Sinai; and the cloud came to rest in the waste land of Paran.

13 They went forward for the first time on their journey as the Lord had given orders by the hand of Moses.

14 First the flag of the children of Judah went forward with their armies: and at the head of his army was Nahshon, the son of Amminadab.

15 And at the head of the army of the children of Issachar was Nethanel, the son of Zuar.

16 And at the head of the army of the children of Zebulun was Eliab, the son of Helon.

17 Then the House was taken down; and the sons of Gershon and the sons of Merari, who were responsible for moving the House, went forward.

18 Then the flag of the children of Reuben went forward with their armies: and at the head of his army was Elizur, the son of Shedeur.

19 And at the head of the army of the children of Simeon was Shelumiel, the son of Zurishaddai.

20 At the head of the army of the children of Gad was Eliasaph, the son of Reuel.

21 Then the Kohathites went forward with the holy place; the others put up the House ready for their coming.

22 Then the flag of the children of Ephraim went forward with their armies: and at the head of his army was Elishama, the son of Ammihud.

23 At the head of the army of the children of Manasseh was Gamaliel, the son of Pedahzur.

24 At the head of the army of the children of Benjamin was Abidan, the son of Gideoni.

25 And the flag of the children of Dan, whose tents were moved last of all, went forward with their armies: and at the head of his army was Ahiezer, the son of Ammishaddai.

26 At the head of the army of the children of Asher was Pagiel, the son of Ochran.

27 And at the head of the army of the children of Naphtali was Ahira, the son of Enan.

28 This was the order in which the children of Israel were journeying by armies; so they went forward.

29 Then Moses said to Hobab, the son of his father-in-law Reuel the Midianite, We are journeying to that place of which the Lord has said, I will give it to you: so come with us, and it will be for your profit: for the Lord has good things in store for Israel.

30 But he said, I will not go with you, I will go back to the land of my birth and to my relations.

31 And he said, Do not go from us; for you will be eyes for us, guiding us to the right places in the waste land to put up our tents.

32 And if you come with us, we will give you a part in whatever good the Lord does for us.

33 So they went forward three days' journey from the mountain of the Lord; and the ark of the Lord's agreement went three days' journey before them, looking for a resting-place for them;

34 And by day the cloud of the Lord went over them, when they went forward from the place where they had put up their tents.

35 And when the ark went forward Moses said, Come up, O Lord, and let the armies of those who are against you be broken, and let your haters go in flight before you.

36 And when it came to rest, he said, Take rest, O Lord, and give a blessing to the families of Israel.

Explanation of Numbers 10      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-10. Concerning revelation from the Lord, that it is adapted to man in all his changes of state; and that it has relation to good, and truth, and their conjunction. Also that it is from Divine Good by Divine Truth; and that it is perpetual, being adequate to every state of conflict, and to every state of rest and peace.

Verses 11-13. Man's progress in regeneration is from a state of obscurity into a state of spiritual light.

Verses 14-17. It begins by a change as to the celestial things of love.

Verse 18-21. This causes changes as to its spiritual things successively, these proceeding from inmost affections to those which are relatively external.

Verses 22-24. It then follows that the inmost of the ultimate heaven, or of the natural degree, is affected, and makes progress in due order and subordination.

Verses 25-28. And, lastly, the external of the ultimate heaven, or of the natural degree, advances in a similar order and subordination; and thus the whole heaven, the whole church, or the whole individual, moves forward.

Verses 29-32. But not only so. For those who are in the truth of simple good, outside the church, are also influenced and make progress.

Verses 33-36. And, more than all, the Lord Himself is the Leader of His people, by means of the Word; while His church acknowledges that all progress is from Him, even through states of conflict into states of peace and rest continually.
