BaMidbar (Numbers) 9:15 – 10:10
15On the day the Tabernacle was set up, the cloud covered the Tabernacle that was a tent for the Testimony, and in the evening there would be upon the Tabernacle like a fiery appearance until morning. 16So it would always be: The cloud would cover it, and an appearance of fire at night. 17And whenever the cloud was lifted from atop the Tent, afterwards the Children of Yisra’el would journey, and in the place where the cloud rest, there the Children of Yisra’el would encamp. 18According to the word of HaShem would the Children of Yisra’el journey, and according to the word of HaShem would they encamp; all the days that the cloud would rest upon the Tabernacle they would encamp. 19When the cloud lingered upon the Tabernacle many days, the Children of Yisra’el would maintain the charge of HaShem and would not journey. 20Sometimes the cloud would be upon the Tabernacle for a number of days; according to the word of HaShem would they encamp and according to the word of HaShem would they journey. 21And sometimes the cloud would remain from evening until morning, and the cloud would be lifted in the morning and they would journey; or for a day and a night, and the cloud would be lifted and they would journey. 22Or for two days, or a month, or a year, when the cloud would linger over the Tabernacle, resting upon it, the Children of Yisra’el would encamp and would not journey, but when it was lifted they would journey. 23According to the word of HaShem would they encamp, and according to the word of HaShem would they journey; the charge of HaShem would they safeguard, according to the word of HaShem through Moshe.
1HaShem spoke to Moshe, saying, 2“Make for yourself two silver trumpets – make them hammered out, and they shall be yours for the summoning of the assembly and to cause the camps to journey. 3When they sound a long blast with them, the entire assembly shall assemble to you, to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. 4If they sound a long blast with one, the leaders shall assemble to you, the heads of Yisra’el thousands. 5When you sound short blasts, the camps resting to the east shall journey. 6When you sound short blasts a second time, the camps resting to the south shall journey; short blasts shall they sound for their journeys. 7When you gather the congregation, you shall sound a long blast, but not a short blast. 8The sons of Aharon, the Kohanim, shall sound the trumpets, and it shall be for you an eternal decree for your generations.
9When you go to wage war in your Land against an enemy who oppresses you, you shall sound short blasts of the trumpets, and you shall be recalled before HaShem, your G-d, and you shall be saved from your enemies.
10On a day of your gladness, and on your festivals, and on your new moons, you shall sound the trumpets over your elevation-offerings and over your feast peace-offerings; and they shall be a remembrance for you before your G-d; I am HaShem, your G-d.”
