Numbers Chapter 10

Numbers 10

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

2Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps.

3And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

4And if they blow but with one trumpet, then the princes, which are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee.

5When ye blow an alarm, then the camps that lie on the east parts shall go forward.

6When ye blow an alarm the second time, then the camps that lie on the south side shall take their journey: they shall blow an alarm for their journeys.

7But when the congregation is to be gathered together, ye shall blow, but ye shall not sound an alarm.

8And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow with the trumpets; and they shall be to you for an ordinance for ever throughout your generations.

9And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.

10Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am the LORD your God.

11And it came to pass on the twentieth day of the second month, in the second year, that the cloud was taken up from off the tabernacle of the testimony.

12And the children of Israel took their journeys out of the wilderness of Sinai; and the cloud rested in the wilderness of Paran.

13And they first took their journey according to the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

14In the first place went the standard of the camp of the children of Judah according to their armies: and over his host was Nahshon the son of Amminadab.

15And over the host of the tribe of the children of Issachar was Nethaneel the son of Zuar.

16And over the host of the tribe of the children of Zebulun was Eliab the son of Helon.

17And the tabernacle was taken down; and the sons of Gershon and the sons of Merari set forward, bearing the tabernacle.

18And the standard of the camp of Reuben set forward according to their armies: and over his host was Elizur the son of Shedeur.

19And over the host of the tribe of the children of Simeon was Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.

20And over the host of the tribe of the children of Gad was Eliasaph the son of Deuel.

21And the Kohathites set forward, bearing the sanctuary: and the other did set up the tabernacle against they came.

22And the standard of the camp of the children of Ephraim set forward according to their armies: and over his host was Elishama the son of Ammihud.

23And over the host of the tribe of the children of Manasseh was Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.

24And over the host of the tribe of the children of Benjamin was Abidan the son of Gideoni.

25And the standard of the camp of the children of Dan set forward, which was the rereward of all the camps throughout their hosts: and over his host was Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai.

26And over the host of the tribe of the children of Asher was Pagiel the son of Ocran.

27And over the host of the tribe of the children of Naphtali was Ahira the son of Enan.

28Thus were the journeyings of the children of Israel according to their armies, when they set forward.

29And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite, Moses’ father in law, We are journeying unto the place of which the LORD said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good: for the LORD hath spoken good concerning Israel.

30And he said unto him, I will not go; but I will depart to mine own land, and to my kindred.

31And he said, Leave us not, I pray thee; forasmuch as thou knowest how we are to encamp in the wilderness, and thou mayest be to us instead of eyes.

32And it shall be, if thou go with us, yea, it shall be, that what goodness the LORD shall do unto us, the same will we do unto thee.

33And they departed from the mount of the LORD three days’ journey: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them in the three days’ journey, to search out a resting place for them.

34And the cloud of the LORD was upon them by day, when they went out of the camp.

35And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee.

36And when it rested, he said, Return, O LORD, unto the many thousands of Israel.

  1. v9 And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you,then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your GOD, and ye shall be saved from your enemies
    v10 And also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings ; that they may be to you for a memorial before your GOD:
    I am the LORD your GOD.

    The LORD IS GOOD
    Praise HIM for the victory!!!

  2. 2Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps.

    In this chapter, we see the importance of the trumpet. It was used as the telling of war and or who was to gather. A trumpet was used to show someone of importance like a king. In the last days a trumpet will be heard though all the land to tell us that THE KING has returned for his bride, and as long as we keep preparing for that day, He will be pleased.

  3. 35And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee.

    36And when it rested, he said, Return, O LORD, unto the many thousands of Israel.

    He is either up and fighting or dwelling among us. But he is always there, always involves, and always cares!

  4. Silver Trumpets
    Num 10:10

    There are two types of trumpets described in the Old Testament: one is made of a ram’s horn; the other, of silver. Long and thin, these silver trumpets -very different from today’s trumpet styles- are tubular in shape with flared ends. The Lord ordered that these two trumpets be made of “hammered silver” (Nu 10:2) and be used to call the people into orderly marching sequence. They are also sounded as a means of calling God to give them victory in battle (Nu 10:9) and as a call to times of feasting and celebration.

  5. STAR OF BETHLEHEM MAY HAVE BEEN PLANETS JUPITER, VENUS

    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Early in the evening of June 17, 2 B.C., the brightest planets in the sky, Jupiter and Venus, merged into a dazzling “star” near the western horizon, according to calculations of modern astronomers. In countries to the east of what was then the kingdom of Judea, observers could have seen the fused planets as a beacon in the direction of Jerusalem.

    Astrologers associated Jupiter with the birth of kings and Venus with fertility. The meeting of Jupiter and Venus took place in the constellation Leo the Lion, which the Old Testament of the Bible specifically associated with the Jewish people. And it happened near the brightest star in Leo, Regulus, most closely identified with kingship.

    There has not been a brighter, closer conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in Leo so near to Regulus in the 2,000 years before or since.

    Could this be the event that caused a group of astrologers called the Wise Men to travel to Jerusalem in search of a new king almost 2,000 years ago?

    The Star of Bethlehem is mentioned only in a few verses of the New Testament’s Book of Matthew (Chapter 2: 1-12), but it is one of the best-known parts of the Christmas story. A number of astronomers and historians have tried to determine what the unusual sight could have been.

  6. Msg vs 8: – When you go to war against an aggressor, blow a long blast on the bugle so that God will notice you and deliver you from your enemies. Also at times of celebration, at the appointed feasts and New Moon festivals, blow the bugles over your Whole-Burnt-Offerings and Peace-Offerings: they will keep your attention on God. I am God, your God.”

    The way to defeat the aggressor is to keep my attention on God, by blowing my “bugle/trumpet” of praise. Praise defeats the enemy.

  7. GET GODS ATTENTION

    9 And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.

    The MSG Version When you go to war against an aggressor, blow a long blast on the bugle so that God will notice you and deliver you from your enemies.

    There is a battle cry for the children of GOD that will attract GOD’s attention and HE WILL deliver us.

    iPray

  8. 29And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite, Moses’ father in law, We are journeying unto the place of which the LORD said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good: for the LORD hath spoken good concerning Israel.
    30And he said unto him, I will not go; but I will depart to mine own land, and to my kindred.

    Though Hobab had been with Moses, and seen the power of God, he wanted to go back to his confortable life in which he was familiar with. All too often we become creatures of habit, and unles our hearts are fixed, will leave the presance of the Lord just to go back to the world that we are so confortable with.

  9. This chapter illustrates power. “And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.” May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  10. Even though some of your family may depart or not fallow you in the way God is leading you, we still have to go forward as God has lead us. If not the covering will not be there. I would rather be covered by God than to depart to my own family. Our true family are those who stay in the fight with us. Lets go forward!

  11. 9And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.

    When they wared they blew the trumpet the Lord had instructed them to make AND He remembered them AND delivered them. Cool!

    35And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee.

  12. The leaders had to know the call of their bugles as to know when to assemble and when to march. We too must know and hear God’s voice in order to know what he wants us to do and when.
