Bible study 119 – Numbers 2Posted: January 30, 2017
The Levites will camp around the tabernacle, with the other twelve tribes around them; one group of three tribes for each cardinal direction. Each tribe-group is lead by one of the four most powerful tribes: The east side is led by Judah’s tribe, the south by Reuben’s tribe, the west by Ephraim’s tribe (who lead the tribe of Ephraim’s younger brother Manasseh, just as Jacob predicted), and the north by Dan.
Those to camp on the east side toward the sunrise shall be of the regimental encampment of Judah by companies. The leader of the people of Judah shall be Nahshon son of Amminadab, with a company as enrolled of seventy-four thousand six hundred.
