A desert encampment of Israel (Numbers 33:22). The name, Kedhelathah ("assembling"), Israel gave. During the 38 years of penal wandering the "congregation" was broken up, only round the tabernacle an organized camp of Levites, priests, and chiefs continued, and it moved from place to place. Being the nucleus and head quarters of the nation, and rallying point for the warriors, its movements were the only ones which the sacred historian records (Numbers 33:18-36). Qehelathah ("assembling"), and makhelowt ("assemblies") (Numbers 33:25), mark extraordinary but temporary gatherings of Israel at those places.
