The Two Silver Trumpets

1And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses, saying: 2Make thee two trumpettes of siluer: of an whole peece shalt thou make them, that thou mayest vse them to call the congregation together, and when the campe shall iourney. 3And when they shal blowe with them, all the multitude shall resort to thee before the doore of the tabernacle of the congregation. 4And if they blowe but one trumpet, then the princes which are heades ouer the thousandes of Israel shall come vnto thee. 5But if ye blowe an alarme, the hoastes that lye on the east partes shall go forwarde. 6And if ye blowe the alarme the second tyme, the hoast that lyeth on the south side shall take their iourney: for they shall blowe an alarme when they take their iourneyes. 7But when the congregation is to be gathered together, they shall blowe without an alarme. 8And the sonnes of Aaron the priestes shall blowe with their trumpettes, and ye shall haue them as a lawe for euer in your generations. 9And if ye go to warre in your lande agaynst your enemies that vexe you, ye shall blowe an alarme with the trumpettes, and ye shalbe remembred before the Lorde your God, to be saued from your enemies. 10Also in the day of your gladnesse, and in your feast dayes, & in the begynnyng of your monethes, ye shall blowe the trumpettes ouer your burnt sacrifices and peace offerynges, that they may be a remembraunce for you before your God: I am the Lorde your God.

11And it came to passe the twentith day of the seconde moneth in the seconde yere, that the cloude was taken vp from of the tabernacle of the testimonie. 12And the children of Israel toke their iourney out of the desert of Sinai, and the cloude rested in the wildernesse of Pharan. 13And they first toke their iourney at the mouth of the Lorde by the hande of Moyses. 14In the first place went the standerde of the hoast of the children of Iuda accordyng to their armies: whose captayne was Nahasson the sonne of Aminadab. 15And ouer the hoast of the tribe of the children of Isachar, was Nathanael the sonne of Zuar. 16And ouer the hoast of the tribe of the chyldren of Zabulon, was Eliab the sonne of Helon.

17And the tabernacle was take downe, and the sonnes of Gerson and Merari went foorth bearing the tabernacle. 18And the hoast of Ruben went foorth with their standerd and armies, whose captaine was Elizur ye sonne of Sedeur. 19And ouer the hoast of the tribe of the chyldren of Simeon, was Salamiel the sonne of Suri Saddai. 20And ouer the hoast of the tribe of the chyldren of Gad, was Eliasaph the sonne of Duel.

21The Caathites also went forwarde and bare the sanctuarie, & the other dyd set vp the tabernacle against they came. 22And the standerd of the hoast of the chyldren of Ephraim went foorth accordyng to their armies, whose captayne was Elisama the sonne of Ammiud. 23And ouer the hoast of the tribe of the sonnes of Manasse, was Gamaliel the sonne of Pedazur. 24And ouer the hoast of the tribe of the sonnes of Beniamin, was Abidan the sonne of Gedeon.

29And Moyses sayde vnto Hobab the sonne of Raguel the Madiamte, which was Moyses father in lawe: We go vnto the place of whiche the Lorde sayde, I wyll geue it you. Come thou therefore with vs, and we wyll do thee good: for the Lorde hath promised good vnto Israel. 30And he aunswered hym: I wyll not go, but wyl depart to mine owne lande, and to my kinred. 31He said: Oh nay, leaue vs not, for thou knowest our mansions in the wyldernesse, and thou mayest be to vs in steade of eyes. 32And if thou go with vs, looke what goodnesse the Lorde sheweth vnto vs, the same wyll we shewe vnto thee.

33And they departed from the mount of the Lorde three dayes iourney, and the arke of the couenaunt of the Lorde went before them in ye three dayes iourney, to search out a resting place for the. 34And the cloude of the Lorde was vppon them by day, when they went out of the campe.

35And when ye arke went foorth, Moyses sayde: Rise vp Lorde, and let thine enemies be scattered, and let them that hate thee, flee before thee.

36And when the arke rested, he sayde: Returne O Lord, vnto the many thousandes of Israel.
