Numbers Chapter 2

Numbers 2:2
2:2 {a} Every man of the children of Israel shall pitch by his
    own standard, with the ensign of their father's house: far
    off about the tabernacle of the congregation shall they
    pitch.

    (a) In the twelve tribes were four principle standards, so
        that every three tribes had their standard.

Numbers 2:5
2:5 And those that do pitch next unto him [shall be] the tribe
    {b} of Issachar: and Nethaneel the son of Zuar [shall be]
    captain of the children of Issachar.

    (b) Judah, Issachar and Zebulun the sons of Leah were of the
        first standard.

Numbers 2:9
2:9 All that were numbered in the {c} camp of Judah [were] an
    hundred thousand and fourscore thousand and six thousand and
    four hundred, throughout their armies. These shall first set
    forth.

    (c) Of those who were contained under that name.

Numbers 2:10
2:10 On the south side [shall be] the standard of the camp {d}
     of Reuben according to their armies: and the captain of the
     children of Reuben [shall be] Elizur the son of Shedeur.

     (d) Reuben and Simeon, the sons of Leah, and Gad, the son
         of Zilpah her maid, were of the second standard.

Numbers 2:17
2:17 Then the tabernacle of the congregation shall set forward
     with the camp of the Levites in the {e} midst of the camp:
     as they encamp, so shall they set forward, every man in his
     place by their standards.

     (e) Because it might be an equal distance from each one,
         and all indifferently have recourse to it.

Numbers 2:18
2:18 {f} On the west side [shall be] the standard of the camp of
     Ephraim according to their armies: and the captain of the
     sons of Ephraim [shall be] Elishama the son of Ammihud.

     (f) Because Ephraim and Manasseh took the place of Joseph
         their father, they are taken as Rachel's children, so
         they and Benjamin make the third standard.

Numbers 2:25
2:25 The standard of the camp of {g} Dan [shall be] on the north
     side by their armies: and the captain of the children of
     Dan [shall be] Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai.

     (g) Dan and Naphtali the sons of Bilhah Rachel's maid with
         Asher the son of Zilpah make the fourth standard.

Numbers 2:32
2:32 These [are] {h} those which were numbered of the children
     of Israel by the house of their fathers: all those that
     were numbered of the camps throughout their hosts [were]
     six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred
     and fifty.

     (h) Which were of twenty years and above.

Numbers 2:34
2:34 And the children of Israel did according to all that the
     LORD commanded Moses: so they pitched by their {i}
     standards, and so they set forward, every one after their
     families, according to the house of their fathers.

     (i) For under every one of the four principal standards,
         were various signs to keep every band.
