Numbers 2

1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying:
2 Everyone of the sons of Israel shall encamp by his own standard, next to the emblems of his father's house; they shall encamp at a distance from the tent of meeting.
3 On the east side, toward the rising of the sun, those of the standard of the camp of Judah shall encamp according to their hosts; and Nahshon the son of Amminadab shall be the captain of the sons of Judah:
4 and his army was numbered at seventy-four thousand six hundred.
5 Those who encamp next to him shall be the tribe of Issachar; and Nethanel the son of Zuar shall be the captain of the sons of Issachar:
6 and his army was numbered at fifty-four thousand four hundred.

8 and his army was numbered at fifty-seven thousand four hundred.
9 All who were numbered according to their hosts with the camp of Judah, one hundred and eighty-six thousand four hundred: these shall set out first.

16 All who were numbered according to their hosts of the camp of Reuben, one hundred and fifty-one thousand four hundred and fifty: they shall set out second.
17 And the tent of meeting shall set out with the camp of the Levites in the middle of the camps. As they encamp, so they shall set out, everyone in his place, by their standards.
18 On the west side shall be the standard of the camp of Ephraim according to their hosts; and the captain of the sons of Ephraim shall be Elishama the son of Ammihud:
19 and his army was numbered at forty thousand five hundred.
20 Next to him, the tribe of Manasseh; and the captain of the sons of Manasseh shall be Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur:
21 and his army was numbered at thirty-two thousand two hundred.
22 Then, the tribe of Benjamin; and the captain of the sons of Benjamin shall be Abidan the son of Gideoni:

29 Then, the tribe of Naphtali; and the captain of the sons of Naphtali shall be Ahira the son of Enan:
30 and his army was numbered at fifty-three thousand four hundred.
31 All who were numbered of the camp of Dan, one hundred and fifty-seven thousand six hundred: they shall set out last, with their standards.
32 These are the ones who were numbered of the sons of Israel by their fathers' houses. All who were numbered according to their hosts of the camps were six hundred and three thousand five hundred and fifty.
33 But the Levites were not numbered among the sons of Israel, as Jehovah had commanded Moses.
34 And the sons of Israel did according to all that Jehovah had commanded Moses: Thus they encamped by their standards and thus they set out, each one with his family, according to their fathers' houses.
