[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no days will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]
Explanation: Numbers 2 the LORD gave encampment and marching orders. They were to encamp around the Tabernacle, at a distance, in four groups ("standards"), having three tribes on each side under each standard. The first standard was the tribe of Judah, which was on the east side of the Tabernacle, together with Issachar and Zebulun (1-9).
On the south side of the Tabernacle were the tribes of Reuben, Simeon, and Gad, under the standard of Reuben (10-16).
When it came time to break camp and march, the standards of Judah and Reuben would set out first, followed by the tribe of Levi, then the other tribes (17).
On the west side of the Tabernacle were the tribes of Ephraim, Manasseh, and Benjamin, under the standard of Ephraim (18-24).
Dan, Asher, and Naphtali were on the north side of the Tabernacle, under the standard of Dan (25-31).
The total number of fighting men was 603,550; but none from Levi were numbered because their service was not military; it was dedicated to the Tabernacle (32-33).
The tribes pitched around the camp in the manner prescribed by Moses (34).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

3 And on the east side toward the rising of the sun shall they of the standard of the camp of Judah pitch throughout their armies: and Nahshon the son of Amminadab shall be captain of the children of Judah.
4 And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were threescore and fourteen thousand and six hundred.
5 And those that do pitch next unto him shall be the tribe of Issachar: and Nethaneel the son of Zuar shall be captain of the children of Issachar.
6 And his host, and those that were numbered thereof, were fifty and four thousand and four hundred.
7 Then the tribe of Zebulun: and Eliab the son of Helon shall be captain of the children of Zebulun.

9 All that were numbered in the camp of Judah were an hundred thousand and fourscore thousand and six thousand and four hundred, throughout their armies. These shall first set forth.

33 But the Levites were not numbered among the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses.
34 And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses: so they pitched by their standards, and so they set forward, every one after their families, according to the house of their fathers.
