Numbers 2

Verses 1-34

The Order of Encampment In Numbers 2:1-24 the Lord sets in order the encampment of the twelve tribes around the Tabernacle. The tribe of Judah, which name means “praise,” led the armies of God in the wilderness, and thus encamped to the east of the Tabernacle. Note: The head of these armies (a captain over each tribe) are listed in Numbers 1:5-16. These leaders were chosen by God, and not appointed by lot or by Moses.
