The use of the silver trumpets.
Numbers 10:1 And the LORD spake vnto Moses, saying, Numbers 10:2 Make thee two trumpets of siluer: of an whole piece shalt thou make them, that thou mayest vse them for the calling of the assembly, and for the iourneying of the campes. Numbers 10:3 And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselues to thee, at the doore of the Tabernacle of the Congregation. Numbers 10:4 And if they blow [but] with one [trumpet], then the Princes, [which are] heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselues vnto thee. Numbers 10:5 When ye blow an alarme, then the campes that lie on the East parts, shall goe forward. Numbers 10:6 When you blow an alarme the second time, then the campes that lye on the Southside, shall take their iourney: they shall blow an alarme for their iourneys. Numbers 10:7 But when the Congregation is to be gathered together, you shal blow: but you shall not sound an alarme. Numbers 10:8 And the sonnes of Aaron the Priests shall blow with the trumpets; and they shalbe to you for an ordinance for euer throughout your generations. Numbers 10:9 And if ye goe to warre in your land, against the enemie that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarme with the trumpets, and ye shalbe remembred before the LORD your God, and yee shalbe saued from your enemies. Numbers 10:10 Also in the day of your gladnesse, and in your solemne dayes, and in the beginnings of your monethes, ye shall blow with the trumpets ouer your burnt offerings, and ouer the sacrifices of your peace offerings, that they may bee to you for a memoriall before your God: I [am] the LORD your God.
