Use of the trumpets
10:1 And the LORD spake to Moses, saying,
10:2 Make ya'll two trumpets of silver ; of a whole piece will
you make them that you may use them for the calling of the
assembly, and for the journeying of the camps.
10:3 And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall
assemble themselves to ya'll at the door of the tabernacle of the
10:4 And if they blow [but] with one [trumpet], then the princes,
[which are] heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather
themselves to ya'll .
10:5 When ya'll blow an alarm, then the camps that lie on the east
parts shall go forward.
10:6 When ya'll 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.
10:7 But when the congregation is to be gathered together, ya'll
shall blow, but ya'll shall not sound an alarm.
10:8 And 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.
10:9 And if ya'll go to war in your land against the enemy that
oppresses you, then ya'll shall blow an alarm with the trumpets ;
and ya'll shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ya'll shall
be saved from your enemies.
10:10 Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days,
and in the beginnings of your months, ya'll 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.
