0 And Hashem spoke unto Moshe, saying,
Make thee two tzotzerot (trumpets) of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them; that thou mayest use them for the calling of the Edah, and for the setting out of the machanot.
And when they shall sound them, Kol HaEdah shall assemble themselves to thee at the entrance of the Ohel Mo’ed.
And if they sound but with one, then the Nasi’im, which are heads of Yisroel’s thousands, shall gather themselves unto thee.
When ye sound a teruah, then the machanot that camp on the east shall go forward.
When ye sound a teruah the second time, then the machanot that camp on the south shall set out; they shall sound a teruah for their settings out.
But when the Kahal is to be gathered together, ye shall sound it, but ye shall not sound a teruah.
And the Bnei Aharon, the kohanim, shall sound the tzotzerot; and they shall be to you for a chukkat olam throughout your dorot.
And if ye go into milchamah (battle) in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall sound a blast on the tzotzerot; and ye shall be remembered before Hashem Eloheichem, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.
Also in the day of your simcha, and in your moadim, and in the Rosh-Chodesh, ye shall sound a blast on the tzotzerot over your olot, and over the zevakhim of your shelamim; that they may be to you for a memorial reminder before Eloheichem: I am Hashem Eloheichem.
