The wilderness camp’s arrangement

The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron: The Israelites will camp each under the banner with the symbol of their household. They will camp around the meeting tent some distance from it.

18 On the west will be the banner of Ephraim’s camp with its military units.

They will march last under their banners.

32 These are the enlisted Israelites by their households. The total enlisted in the camps with their military units is 603,550. 33 But the Levites weren’t enlisted among the Israelites, as the Lord had commanded Moses. 34 The Israelites did everything exactly as the Lord had commanded Moses: they camped under their banners and they marched by their clans and by their households.
