JPS Tanakh 1917
1And the LORD spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying: 2‘The children of Israel shall pitch by their fathers’ houses; every man with his own standard, according to the ensigns; a good way off shall they pitch round about the tent of meeting. 3Now those that pitch on the east side toward the sunrising shall be they of the standard of the camp of Judah, according to their hosts; the prince of the children of Judah being Nahshon the son of Amminadab, 4and his host, and those that were numbered of them, threescore and fourteen thousand and six hundred; 5and those that pitch next unto him shall be the tribe of Issachar; the prince of the children of Issachar being Nethanel the son of Zuar, 6and his host, even those that were numbered thereof, fifty and four thousand and four hundred; 7and the tribe of Zebulun; the prince of the children of Zebulun being Eliab the son of Helon, 8and his host, and those that were numbered thereof, fifty and seven thousand and four hundred; 9all that were numbered of the camp of Judah being a hundred thousand and fourscore thousand and six thousand and four hundred, according to their hosts; they shall set forth first.

10On the south side shall be the standard of the camp of Reuben according to their hosts; the prince of the children of Reuben being Elizur the son of Shedeur, 11and his host, and those that were numbered thereof, forty and six thousand and five hundred; 12and those that pitch next unto him shall be the tribe of Simeon; the prince of the children of Simeon being Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai, 13and his host, and those that were numbered of them, fifty and nine thousand and three hundred; 14and the tribe of Gad; the prince of the children of Gad being Eliasaph the son of Reuel, 15and his host, even those that were numbered of them, forty and five thousand and six hundred and fifty; 16all that were numbered of the camp of Reuben being a hundred thousand and fifty and one thousand and four hundred and fifty, according to their hosts; and they shall set forth second.

17Then the tent of meeting, with the camp of the Levites, shall set forward in the midst of the camps; as they encamp, so shall they set forward, every man in his place, by their standards.

18On the west side shall be the standard of the camp of Ephraim according to their hosts; the prince of the children of Ephraim being Elishama the son of Ammihud, 19and his host, and those that were numbered of them, forty thousand and five hundred; 20and next unto him shall be the tribe of Manasseh; the prince of the children of Manasseh being Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur, 21and his host, and those that were numbered of them, thirty and two thousand and two hundred; 22and the tribe of Benjamin; the prince of the children of Benjamin being Abidan the son of Gideoni, 23and his host, and those that were numbered of them, thirty and five thousand and four hundred; 24all that were numbered of the camp of Ephraim being a hundred thousand and eight thousand and a hundred, according to their hosts; and they shall set forth third.

25On the north side shall be the standard of the camp of Dan according to their hosts; the prince of the children of Dan being Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai, 26and his host, and those that were numbered of them, threescore and two thousand and seven hundred; 27and those that pitch next unto him shall be the tribe of Asher; the prince of the children of Asher being Pagiel the son of Ochran, 28and his host, and those that were numbered of them, forty and one thousand and five hundred; 29and the tribe of Naphtali; the prince of the children of Naphtali being Ahira the son of Enan, 30and his host, and those that were numbered of them, fifty and three thousand and four hundred; 31all that were numbered of the camp of Dan being a hundred thousand and fifty and seven thousand and six hundred; they shall set forth hindmost by their standards.’

32These are they that were numbered of the children of Israel by their fathers’ houses; all that were numbered of the camps according to their hosts were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty. 33But the Levites were not numbered among the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses. 34Thus did the children of Israel: according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so they pitched by their standards, and so they set forward, each one according to its families, and according to its fathers’ houses.
