Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 The LORD said to Moses, 1 The LORD said to Moses:
2 "Make two silver trumpets; of hammered work you shall make them; and you shall use them for summoning the congregation, and for breaking camp. 2 "Make two trumpets of hammered silver, and use them for calling the community together and for having the camps set out.
3 And when both are blown, all the congregation shall gather themselves to you at the entrance of the tent of meeting. 3 When both are sounded, the whole community is to assemble before you at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.
4 But if they blow only one, then the leaders, the heads of the tribes of Israel, shall gather themselves to you. 4 If only one is sounded, the leaders--the heads of the clans of Israel--are to assemble before you.
5 When you blow an alarm, the camps that are on the east side shall set out. 5 When a trumpet blast is sounded, the tribes camping on the east are to set out.
6 And when you blow an alarm the second time, the camps that are on the south side shall set out. An alarm is to be blown whenever they are to set out. 6 At the sounding of a second blast, the camps on the south are to set out. The blast will be the signal for setting out.
7 But when the assembly is to be gathered together, you shall blow, but you shall not sound an alarm. 7 To gather the assembly, blow the trumpets, but not with the same signal.
8 And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow the trumpets. The trumpets shall be to you for a perpetual statute throughout your generations. 8 "The sons of Aaron, the priests, are to blow the trumpets. This is to be a lasting ordinance for you and the generations to come.
9 And when you go to war in your land against the adversary who oppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, that you may be remembered before the LORD your God, and you shall be saved from your enemies. 9 When you go into battle in your own land against an enemy who is oppressing you, sound a blast on the trumpets. Then you will be remembered by the LORD your God and rescued from your enemies.
10 On the day of your gladness also, and at your appointed feasts, and at the beginnings of your months, you shall blow the trumpets over your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; they shall serve you for remembrance before your God: I am the LORD your God." 10 Also at your times of rejoicing--your appointed feasts and New Moon festivals--you are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, and they will be a memorial for you before your God. I am the LORD your God."
