Numbers 10:4 But if they blowe with one, then the princes, or heades ouer the thousandes of Israel shall come vnto thee. Numbers 10:5 But if ye blow an alarme, then the campe of the that pitch on the East part, shal go forward. Numbers 10:6 If ye blowe an alarme the second time, then the hoste of them that lie on the Southside shal march: for they shal blowe an alarme when they remoue. Numbers 10:7 But in assembling the Congregation, ye shall blowe without an alarme. Numbers 10:8 And the sonnes of Aaron the Priest shall blowe the trumpets, and ye shall haue them as a lawe for euer in your generations. Numbers 10:9 And when ye goe to warre in your lande against the enemie that vexeth you, ye shall blowe an alarme with the trumpets, and ye shall bee remembred before the Lorde your God, and shalbe saued from your enemies. Numbers 10:10 Also in the day of your gladnesse, and in your feast dayes, & in the beginning of your moneths, ye shal also blow the trumpets ouer your burnt sacrifices, and ouer your peace offrings, that they may be a remembrance for you before your God: I am the Lorde your God.
