Holman Bible Dictionary - Camp, EnCampment
A temporary settlement for nomadic and military people. In the Old Testament English translators usually use “camp” or “encampment” to translate Hebrew machaneh . A machaneh is a temporary settlement of travelers or warriors. Before the settlement in the Promised Land, Israel was a group of tribes on the move. Hence the frequent reference to “the camp” or “the camp of Israel” ( Exodus 14:19 ; Exodus 16:13 ). Leviticus and Deuteronomy contain laws regulating life “in the camp.”
Each tribe also had its own camp: Numbers 2:3 speaks of “the camp of Judah”; Numbers 2:25 of “the camp of Dan.” After each tribe had secured a permanent place of residence in the Promised Land, the term “camp” designated a military settlement, whether of Israel ( 1 Samuel 4:3 ; 1 Samuel 14:21 ) or of an enemy (2 Kings 7:10 ). The Hebrew word machaneh is often rendered “company” ( Genesis 32:8 ,Genesis 32:8,32:21 ), “host” (Exodus 14:24 ), and “army” (1 Samuel 17:1 ). The context in these instances calls for a word which designates the people of the camp rather than the settlement as such.
In the Greek translation of the Old Testament machaneh is rendered parembole , literally “a putting alongside.” This word appears in Hebrews 13:11 ,Hebrews 13:11,13:13 and in Revelation 20:9 . In the last passage it is used figuratively of the church, “the camp of the saints,” under attack by the forces of Satan. Its use in the two Hebrews citations is also figurative, drawing upon the time when the people Israel lived as camp and using that experience as a metaphor for the people of God at the time the author was writing. During Israel's years in the wilderness, sin offerings were burned outside the camp. When Jesus was put to death for the sins of mankind, He was led outside the Holy City and at a distance from the Temple. The writer of Hebrews thus encouraged his fellow Christians to follow their Lord “outside the camp” of Israel's sacrificial system and of their Jewish religious heritage, even though that could mean bearing abuse.

EAST
Everything was ordered of God, and each tribe must pitch its tents in the places appointed for them. Numbers 2 . As we might have expected, Moses, Aaron, and the priests were nearest to the door of the Tabernacle, and the Levites surrounded the three other sides.
The order in which the tribes were to march was also specified. In Psalm 80:2 we read "Before Ephraim, and Benjamin, and Manasseh, stir upthy strength, and come and save us." This alludes to those three being the tribes which immediately followed the Ark, the symbol of God's presence. It will be seen that the tribes were grouped under four leaders, each beingcalled a camp. They moved in the order given in Numbers 10 .
JUDAH, with Issachar and Zebulun,
The GERSHONITES and the MERARITES with the Tabernacle,
REUBEN, with Simeon and Gad,
The KOHATHITES with the 'sanctuary,'
EPHRAIM, with Manasseh and Benjamin,
DAN, with Asher and Naphtali.
Certain defilements shut a person out of the camp until he was cleansed, and many things had to be carried outside as being unfit for the place in the midst of which God had His dwelling-place. When the camp itself had become defiled by the golden calf, Moses "took the tabernacle and pitched it without the camp . . . . and called it the tabernacle of the congregation." This was not really 'the tabernacle,' for it had not at that time been erected. The word used signifies 'the tent,' and it was doubtless a tent anticipatory of the tabernacle significantly pitched by Moses outside the camp, to show that God's dwelling could not be where there was an idol, for it is added, "Every one which sought the Lord went out unto the tabernacle of the congregation, which was without the camp." Exodus 33:7 .
The bodies of the beasts whose blood was brought into the sanctuary by the high priests for sin were burned without the camp. Exodus 29:14 ; Leviticus 4:11,12 ; Hebrews 13:11 . With this is linked the fact that Jesus also 'suffered without the gate' (of Jerusalem, which then answered to the camp); on which is based the exhortation to Christians, "Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach." Hebrews 13:12,13 . The whole earthly religious system adapted to the natural man, as Judaism of old, answers now to 'the camp' which Christians are exhorted to leave. Such systems, Judaism and Christendom, stand in direct contrast to the heavenly and spiritual character of the church of God. The camp in Revelation 20:9 refers to the nation of Israel when again gathered into the land of Palestine. There is no 'camp' on earth for the church.
Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Camp
Hebrews 13:13 (b) The great religious groups of the world established by human agencies and teaching men's theories are called a "camp."
Revelation 20:9 (b) A term used to describe the armies of Israel encamped in and around Jerusalem.
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Camp
During their journeys across the wilderness, the twelve tribes formed encampments at the different places where they halted (Exodus 16:13 ; Numbers 2:3 ). The diagram here given shows the position of the different tribes and the form of the encampment during the wanderings, according to Numbers 1:53 ; 2:2-31 ; 3:29,35,38 ; 10:13-28 . The area of the camp would be in all about 3 square miles. After the Hebrews entered Palestine, the camps then spoken of were exclusively warlike (Joshua 11:5,7 ; Judges 5:19,21 ; 7:1 ; 1 Samuel 29:1 ; 30:9 , etc.).
Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Camp
Machăneh (מַחֲנֶה, Strong's #4264), “camp; encampment; host.” This noun derived from the verb chanah occurs 214 times in the Bible, most frequently in the Pentateuch and in the historical books. The word is rare in the poetical and prophetic literature.Those who travel were called “campers,” or in most versions (KJV, RSV, NASB) a “company” or “group” (NIV), as in Gen. 32:8. Naaman stood before Elisha “with all his company” (2 Kings 5:15 NASB, NEB, “retinue”). Travelers, tradesmen, and soldiers spent much time on the road. They all set up “camp” for the night. Jacob “encamped” by the Jabbok with his retinue (Gen. 32:10). The name Machăneh (Gen. 32:2, “camps”) owes its origin to Jacob’s experience with the angels. He called the place Machăneh in order to signify that it was God’s “camp” (Gen. 32:2), as he had spent the night “in the camp” (Gen. 32:21) and wrestled with God (Gen. 32:24). Soldiers also established “camps” by the city to be conquered (Ezek. 4:2) Usage of machăneh varies according to context.
First, it signifies a nation set over against another (Exod. 14:20). Second, the word refers to a division concerning the Israelites; each of the tribes had a special “encampment” in relation to the tent of meeting (Num. 1:52). Third, the word “camp” is used to describe the whole people of Israel: “And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled” (Exod. 19:16).
God was present in the “camp” of Israel: “For the Lord thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee” (Deut. 23:14). As a result, sin could not be tolerated within the camp, and the sinner might have to be stoned outside the camp (Num. 15:35).
The Septuagint translated machăneh by the Greek parembole (“camp; barracks; army”) 193 times. Compare these Old Testament occurrences with the use of “camp” in Hebrews 13:11: “For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.” In the English versions, the word is variously translated “camp; company; army” (KJV, RSV, NASB, NIV); “host” (KJV); “attendances; forces” (NIV)
People's Dictionary of the Bible - Camp And EnCamp
Camp and Encamp. Exodus 14:19. The order in which the Israelites camped in the wilderness was specially prescribed by divine command. The tabernacle was placed in the centre; and round it were the tents of the house of Levi, in four divisions; Moses and Aaron, with the priests, on the east side, the Gershonites westward, Numbers 3:1-51, the Kohathites southward, and the Memrites northward. The great host, also in four divisions, encircled these. Three tribes lay to the east, Judah the chief, and Issachar and Zebulun. Numbers 2:2-9. On the south were three other tribes—Reuben, Simeon, and Gad. The tribes of Joseph's house lay to the west—Ephraim, Manasseh, and Benjamin. And on the north side was the camp of Dan, in the order of Dan, Asher, and Naphtali. We read of gates to the camp, Exodus 32:26-27; the dead were buried outside these, Numbers 10:4-5; also lepers, and various unclean persons, and captives, at least for a while, were to be there. Leviticus 13:46; Leviticus 14:3; Numbers 6:1-4; Numbers 12:14-15; Numbers 31:19; Numbers 31:24; Joshua 6:23. The skins, etc., of victims were burnt there, and ashes poured out and uncleanness removed thither, and criminals executed there. Leviticus 4:11-12; Leviticus 6:11; Leviticus 8:17; Leviticus 24:14; Numbers 15:35-36; Deuteronomy 23:10-12.
Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Camp
or ENCAMPMENT, of the Israelites. The whole body of the people, consisting of six hundred thousand fighting men, beside women and children, was disposed under four battalions, so placed as to enclose the tabernacle, in the form of a square, and each under one general standard. ( See ARMIES. ) There were forty-one encampments, from their first in the month of March, at Rameses, in the land of Goshen, in Egypt, and in the wilderness, until they reached the land of Canaan. They are thus enumerated in Numbers 33 :—
1 . Rameses
2. Succoth
3. Etham, on the edge of the wilderness
4. Pihahiroth
5. Marah
6. Elim
7. By the Red Sea

36 . Punon
37 . Oboth
38 . Ije-abarim
39 . Dibon-gad
40 . Almon-diblathaim
41 . Mountains of Abarim In the second year after their exodus from Egypt they were numbered; and upon an exact poll, the number of their males amounted to six hundred and three thousand, five hundred and fifty, from twenty years old and upward, Numbers 1:2 . This vast mass of people, encamped in beautiful order, must have presented a most impressive spectacle. That it failed not to produce effect upon the richly endowed and poetic mind of Balaam, appears from Numbers 24:2 ; "And Balaam lifted up his eyes and he saw Israel abiding in his tents according to their tribes; and the Spirit of God came upon him, and he took up his parable and said, How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O Israel! As the valleys are they spread forth, as gardens by the river side, as the trees of lign aloes which the Lord hath planted, and as cedar trees beside waters." Grandeur, order, beauty, and freshness, were the ideas at once suggested to the mind of this unfaithful prophet, and called forth his unwilling admiration. Perhaps we may consider this spectacle as a type of the order, beauty, and glory of the true "church in the wilderness," in those happy days when God "shall not behold iniquity in Jacob, nor perverseness in Israel;" when it shall be said, "The Lord his God is with him, and the shout of a king is among them."
King James Dictionary - Camp
CAMP, n.
1. The ground on which an army pitch their tents, whether for a night or a longer time. 2. The order or arrangement of tents, or disposition of an army, for rest as, to pitch a camp. Also, the troops encamped on the same field. 3. An army. CAMP, or I. To rest or lodge, as an army, usually in tents to pitch a camp to fix tents but seldom used. See Encamp.
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Camp, EnCampments
These terms usually refer to the movements of the Israelites between Egypt and Canaan; and many passages of the Levitical law relate to things done "within" or "without the camp." The whole body of the people consisted of six hundred thousand fighting men, besides women and children, Numbers 1:2 ; and was disposed into four battalions, so arranged as to enclose the tabernacle in a square, and each under one general standard, Numbers 2:3 . The mode in which this vast mass of people was arranged, with the most perfect order and subordination, must excite general surprise. Balaam, standing on the heights of Moab, viewed the imposing spectacle with admiration and awe: "How godly are thy tents, O Jacob! the Lord his God is with him," Numbers 23:1-24:25 .
The order appointed for the removal of the hosts of Israel from one encampment to another is detailed in Numbers 9:1-10:36 . The names of forty-one encampments are given in Numbers 33:1-56 ; from the first in Rameses, in the month April, B. C. 1491, to the last on the brink of the Jordan forty years later. See EXODUS , and WANDERINGS.
Travellers in the desert were wont to pitch their tents in the center of a circle formed by their camels and baggage, which served as a barrier against an assault. A similar mode of encamping was practiced by large caravans, and by armies, 1 Samuel 26:5 .

Encampment - Below is represented the Israelite order of march and encampment (Numbers 2). The earthly Camp exhibited the perfect symmetry of the church; the tabernacle in the middle denoted the dependence of all on Jehovah and the access of all to Him. The area of the Camp was about three square miles. The "standard" (degel , a glittering emblem on a pole) marked the division or Camp, the "ensign" ('ot ) the family. ...
Thus there were four standards, one for each "camp" of three tribes: according to tradition the four cherubic forms, the lion (Judah, Genesis 49:9; Revelation 5:5), the ox (Ephraim, Deuteronomy 33:17), the man, and the eagle (Ezekiel 1:26; Ezekiel 10:1; Revelation 4:4, etc. Reuben, Leah's oldest son, with Simeon, Leah's second, and Gad, oldest of Leah's handmaid Zilpah's sous, formed the second Camp. Ephraim, Manasseh, and Benjamin, Rachel's descendants, formed the third Camp. Dan, oldest of the handmaids' children, with Asher and Naphtali, handmaids' children, formed the fourth Camp. The sanctity of the Camp was maintained even in time of war. 407, observes: "no faith or regard for religion exists among men in Camp" (nulla fides pietasque viris qui castra sequuntur ). But in war especially Israel was to "keep from every wicked thing," and even from any breach of decorum or cleanliness, "for the Lord thy God walketh in the midst of thy Camp to deliver thee and to give up thine enemies before thee, therefore shall thy Camp be holy, that He see no unclean thing in thee and turn away from thee" (Deuteronomy 23:9-14). ...

Reproach (2) - In the second passage (Hebrews 13:13), the Jewish-Christian readers are exhorted to a fellowship with the sufferings of Christ, in the words, ‘Let us go forth therefore unto him without the Camp, bearing his reproach. ’ The allusion apparently is to the sin-offering on the Day of Atonement without the Camp of Israel, and to the suffering of Jesus without the city gate; and the meaning is that those Jewish-Christians must forsake the sphere of the OT religion, break off the old ties of national fellowship, and face all the pain and contumely that this would involve, so that they might share in the better blessings of the great Sin-offering. And when the author of Hebrews speaks of the ‘reproach of Christ’—telling of the manner in which it was esteemed by Moses, and urging his fellow-believers of the Jewish race to go forth without the Camp with that reproach upon them—it may be that he also is recalling how Jesus taught His disciples to rejoice in reproach because their reward in heaven was great (Matthew 5:12, Luke 6:23)

Gideon - At the command of Jahweh again, he goes with his servant, Purah, down to the Camp of the Midianites, where he is encouraged by overhearing a Midianite recounting a dream, which is interpreted by another Midianite as foreshadowing the victory of Gideon. On his return to his own Camp Gideon divides his men into three companies; each man receives a torch, an earthen jar, and a horn; at a given sign, the horns are blown, the jars broken, and the burning torches exposed to view, with the result that the Midianites flee in terror. This section is evidently a fragment of the original source, which presumably went on to detail what further action the Ephraimites took during the Midianite Campaign; for that the Midianite oppression was brought to an end by this one battle it is impossible to believe. the Philistine Campaign under Saul

Israel's first encampment near Kadesh was at Rithmah (from retem , the "broom") in midsummer, in the second year after the Exodus; there for 40 days they awaited the spies' report (Numbers 13:20; Numbers 13:25-26; Numbers 33:18-19, from verses 20 to 36 are the stages of penal wandering). The people spread about the ridges of Paran, while the tabernacle and Camp moved among them from place to place. At the second encampment at Kadesh they stayed three or four months (Numbers 20:1 with Numbers 1:22-28; Numbers 33:38). The Camp and tabernacle, with the priests and chiefs, during the wanderings, were the nucleus and rallying point; and the encampments named in Numbers 33:18-36 are those at which the tabernacle was pitched. Aaron's death occurred in the first day of the fifth month of the 40th year (Numbers 33:38), the first encampment in the final march to Canaan (Numbers 14:11-16,). His attack was evidently when the Camp moved from Kadesh, which was immediately S. The regulations for encamping and marching (Numbers 2; Numbers 9:16; etc
War - ’ Rarely, as in the case of the Campaign against Sisera ( Judges 4:1-24 ), was it necessary to summon a larger army from several tribes.

Little is known of the Camps of the Heb. ]'>[4] ‘place of the wagons’ ( 1 Samuel 17:20 ; 1 Samuel 26:5 ; 1 Samuel 26:7 ) is derived from a root which justifies us in supposing that the Hebrew Camps were round, rather than square. Of the 20 Assyrian Camps represented on the bronze plates of the gates of Balawat, 4 are circular, 14 almost square, and 2 have their long sides straight and their short sides curved outwards. Two gates are represented at opposite ends, between which a broad road divides the Camp into two almost equal parts (Billerbeck u. As examples of more elaborate tactics may be cited Joab’s handling of his troops before Rabbath-ammon ( 2 Samuel 10:9-11 ), and Benhadad’s massing of his chariots at the battle of Ramoth-gilead ( 1 Kings 22:31 ); the Campaigns of Judas Maccabæus would repay a special study from this point of view.

Joshua - On the descent Joshua heard the noise of the people shouting, and with a warrior's thought he said to Moses, "there is a noise of war in the Camp"; but it was the noise of singers in the calf worship. When Moses removed the tabernacle of meeting between God and His people from the Camp, Joshua, then "a young man" (perhaps an official term for an attendant, Numbers 11:28; Deuteronomy 1:38 "Joshua who standeth before thee"), departed not out of the tabernacle; the Lord's house and communion is the best qualification for those who are afterward to fight the Lord's battles. When Eldad and Medad prophesied in the Camp separately from the rest of the 70 who received of the spirit that was upon Moses, in his presence, Joshua said, "my lord Moses, forbid them;" he replied, "enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the Lord's people were prophets," etc. ...

Balaam - "...
After his predictions, Balaam returned into his own country; but before he left the land of Moab, as if vexed with his own disappointment in missing the promised reward, and with a purpose of revenging himself on the Israelites, as the cause of it, he instructed the Moabites and Midianites in a wicked scheme, which was to send their daughters into the Camp of the Israelites, in order to draw them first into lewdness, and then into idolatry, the certain means of depriving them of the help of that God who protected them. This artifice succeeded; for as the Israelites lay encamped at Shittim, many of them were deluded by these strange women, not only to commit whoredom with them, but to assist at their sacrifices, and worship their god Baal-Peor, Numbers 25:1-3 ; Numbers 31:16 ; ...

In cases of sin by priests or the nation as a whole, the priests sprinkled the animal’s blood inside the Holy Place, burnt parts of the animal on the altar of sacrifice, and burnt the remainder outside the Camp (Leviticus 4:7; Leviticus 4:10; Leviticus 4:12)

Red Sea - After they set out from Rameses, in the land of Goshen, in the neighbourhood of Cairo, their first encampment was at Succoth, signifying "booths," or an "enclosure for cattle," after a stage of about thirty miles; their second, at Etham, or Adsjerud, on the edge of the wilderness, about sixty miles farther; "for the Lord led them not by the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt: but God led the people about by the way of the wilderness of the Red Sea," or by a circuitous route to the land of promise, in order to train them and instruct them, in the solitudes of Arabia Petraea, Exodus 13:17-20 ; Deuteronomy 32:10 . Instead of proceeding from Etham, round the head of the Red Sea, and coasting along its eastern shore, the Lord made them turn southward along its western shore, and, after a stage of about twenty or thirty miles, to encamp in the valley of Bedea, where there was an opening in the great chain of mountains that line the western coast, called Pi-hahiroth, the mouth of the ridge between Migdol westward, and the sea eastward, "over against Baal-zephon," on the eastern coast; to tempt Pharaoh, whose heart he finally hardened, to pursue them when they were "entangled in the land," and shut in by the wilderness on their rear and flanks, and by the sea in their front. So Pharaoh pursued the Israelites by the direct way of Migdol, with six hundred chariots, his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pi-hahiroth, over against Baal-zephon. The day before the passage, by the divine command, the Israelites encamped beside Pi-hahiroth "between Migdol and the sea, over against Baal-zephon,"...
Exodus 14:2 ; Numbers 33:7 . And it was this unexpected change in the direction of their march, and the apparently disadvantageous situation in which they were then placed, entangled in the land, and shut in by the wilderness, with a deep sea in front, the mountains of Attaka on the sides, and the enemy in their rear, that tempted the Egyptians to pursue them through the valley of Bedea, by the direct route from Cairo, who overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pi-hahiroth, opposite to Baal-zephon, Exodus 14:2-9 . But the Israelites went out of Egypt with "a high hand," though led by Moses, yet under the visible guidance and protection of "the Lord God of the Hebrews," who "went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, and by night in a pillar of fire;"...
and who, for their encouragement, to enter the passage of the sea miraculously prepared for them, removed the cloud which went before the Camp of Israel hitherto, and placed it behind them.

Olives, Mount of - ...
Before the ridge is a plateau large enough to afford Camping ground for the two Roman legions of Titus, and at the same time hidden from view of the city; it has also the military advantages of being directly upon the line of communication, of being difficult to approach from the front, and having good communication with the flanks and rear. , the second Camp, the fifth legion, could Camp on a large plain stretching toward Tel el Ful, close to the great northern road
Exodus, the - Passing by Marah, they encamped under the palmtrees of Elim (wady Gharandel) by the waters. Thence they encamped first at Dophkah, then at Alush. Fifteen days elapsed between the encampment in the wilderness of Sin and their arrival at Sinai mount (Exodus 16:1; compare Exodus 19:1). " Wady Nasb, the first station on this route, affords water abundant, answering to the "wilderness of Sin" encampment, where they made no complaint of want of water; the water supply accounts for their halting some days here. is a large plain without water, where Israel encamped. is a plain with water supply near, where Amalek might encamp. The sight breaks on Moses suddenly only when near the Camp, and he breaks the tables "beneath the mount. The Israelites passed a whole year encamped "before the mount," and the pasturage and water supply at Ras Sufsafeh are much greater than those at Serbal, or in any other part of the peninsula. At Erweis el Ebeirig, not far from the wady el Hudherah (Hazeroth), remains are found which are probably Israelite, and mark the site of the Camp Kibroth Hattaavah. Not far off, a recess one mile and a half long, three quarters broad, would form an additional Camping ground
Consecrate - This is to be seen in the organization of persons into priesthood and laity, in the layout of the sanctuary and the Camp around it, and in the regulations for access of persons to holy territory
Spitting - Thus in the case of a father's spitting in his child's face it should seem that this was tantamount to the leprosy, for the same law, and by the Lord's own appointment, took place in both cases—the child was shut out of the Camp for seven days

Alaric - " In the first siege of Rome both pagan and Christian historians relate the strange proposal to relieve the city by the magical arts of some Etruscan diviners, who were believed to have power to call down lightning from heaven, and direct it against Alaric's Camp. At the plunder of Nola in Campania, St
Feasts - And I venture to believe, that though this trumpet was never sounded but once in forty-nine years, and consequently few, if any, ever heard it before, or ever lived to hear it a second Jubilee, yet there was not a soul in the Camp but understood the joyful sound, and felt the meaning (if I may be allowed the expression,) like the archangel's trumpet, as it will be understood by all flesh, when Jesus comes to judgment
Leper, Leprosy - The sudden and total change of food, air, dwelling and mode of life, caused by the exodus, to this nation of newly-emancipated slaves, may possibly have had a further tendency to produce skin disorders, and severe repressive measures may have been required in the desert-moving Camp to secure the public health or to allay the panic of infection
Vine - ...
The grapes of Egypt, Genesis 40:11 , being small, we may easily conceive of the surprise which was occasioned to the Israelites by witnessing the bunch of grapes brought by the spies to the Camp, from the valley of Eshcol, Numbers 13:23
Cloud, Cloud of the Lord - ...
The pillar of cloud motif-set forth in the exodus account and expanded in the prophetic announcements of a new exodus after the Babylonian exile-encompasses a rich complex of theological meanings and functions: guidance/leading (of Israel out of Egypt and through the wilderness to Canaan, Exodus 13:21 ; Numbers 14:14 ; Nehemiah 9:12 ; Psalm 78:14 ); a signal for movement (breaking and setting up Camp, Exodus 40:36-37 ; Numbers 9:17-23 ); protection from danger (as a barrier of darkness between Israel and the Egyptians, Exodus 14:19-20 ); the sustained, immediate, personal presence of Yahweh/the angel of the Lord (Exodus 13:22 ; 14:19,24 ; 40:38 ; Joel 2:2 ); an agency of summons (to battle, Numbers 10:34-35 ; and to worship, Exodus 33:10 ); both a concealment and manifestation of divine glory (Exodus 16:10 ; 19:9,16 ; 20:21 ; 24:15-18 ; 34:5 ; Deuteronomy 4:11 ; 5:22 ); the place of propositional revelation (as an oracular cloud, Exodus 33:9 ; Psalm 99:7 ); the dwelling place/throne of divinity (over the tabernacle, Numbers 9:18,22 ; 10:11 ; and in particular, over the mercy seat, Leviticus 16:2 ); the locus of cultic theophany (for the investiture of the seventy elders and Joshua, Numbers 11:25 ; Deuteronomy 31:15 ; for the inauguration of the tabernacle, Exodus 40:34-35 ); shade/protection from the sun or storm (Numbers 10:34 ; Psalm 105:39 ; Isaiah 4:5 ); illumination (as a pillar of fire by night, Exodus 14:20 ; Numbers 9:15 ); and an agency of legal investigation and/or executive judgment (against Israel's enemies, Exodus 14:24 ; and against rebels within Israel, Numbers 12:5,10 ; 16:42 )

Alexander - In one Campaign, he subdued almost all Asia Minor; and afterward defeated, in the narrow passes which led from Syria to Cilicia, the army of Darius, which consisted of four hundred thousand foot, and one hundred thousand horse. Darius fled, and left in the hands of the conqueror, his Camp, baggage, children, wife, and mother
Elisha - Elisha was at that time in the Camp; and seeing Jehoram, the king of Israel, he said, "What have I to do with thee? get thee to the prophets of thy father, and to the prophets of thy mother
Lot - They removed the landmarks; they drew off the water; they picked constant quarrels with Abraham's patient herdmen, till the strife between the two Camps was the scandal of the whole country round. ...
Just when Lot is beginning to make the acquaintance of the men of Sodom, and is finding them, as he was sure he would find them, not so bad as they were reported; just as he was opening accounts for his tent and his Camp with the merchants of Sodom, the Lord is hastening down to redress the wrong and to recognise and recompense Abraham. But as Lot's guardian angel would have it, one of Lot's herdmen escaped; and how his heart would sink as he came near Abraham's encampment at Hebron! But to whom else could he go? His own conscience of the past bitterly upbraided him as he told Abraham the disaster; but Abraham had something else to do than to trample on a fallen man. Abraham fell upon the sleeping Camp, and Lot was a free man next morning with all his goods
Sacrifices - But the sin-offering was burned ‘in a clean place’ without the Camp (Leviticus 4:12), and it was most holy. So not in a worldly but in a spiritual manner those who go out unto Jesus without the Camp have the highest, happiest enjoyment of the friendship of God; Christ Himself by His sacred and faithful life and death is their temple, and there they ‘offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually
Adder - The rattlesnake acknowledges the power of music as much as any of his family; of which the following instance is a decisive proof: When Chateaubriand was in Canada, a snake of that species entered their encampment; a young Canadian, one of the party, who could play on the flute, to divert his associates, advanced against the serpent with his new species of weapon: on the approach of his enemy, the haughty reptile curled himself into a spiral line, flattened his head, inflated his cheeks, contracted his lips, displayed his envenomed fangs, and his bloody throat; his double tongue glowed like two flames of fire; his eyes were burning coals; his body, swollen with rage, rose and fell like the bellows of a forge; his dilated skin assumed a dull and scaly appearance; and his tail, which sounded the denunciation of death, vibrated with so great rapidity as to resemble a light vapour. In this manner he was led out of their Camp, attended by a great number of spectators, both savages and Europeans, who could scarcely believe their eyes, when they beheld this wonderful effect of harmony
Lion - An instance in quite modern times of an unarmed man attempting to combat a lion is related by Poiret: "In a douar, or a Camp of Bedouin Arabs, near La Calle, a French factory, a young lion had seized a cow
Rome, - Modern Rome lies to the north of the ancient city, covering with its principal portion the plain to the north of the seven hills, once known as the Campus Martius, and on the opposite bank extending over the low ground beneath the Vatican to the north of the ancient Janiculum. " Some parts of the city, especially the Forum and Campus Martius, must have presented a magnificent appearance, of which Niebur's "Lectures on Roman History," ii. ( Acts 28:15 ) [1] (2) "The palace," Or "Caesar's court" (praetorium,) (Philippians 1:13 ) This may mean either the great Camp of the Praetorian guards which Tiberius established outside the walls on the northeast of the city, or, as seems more probable, a barrack attached to the imperial residence on the Palatine
Jerusalem - side of the Roman Camp upon the S. , together with Herod’s three towers, was spared by Titus and utilized by him for the ‘Camp. side over the summit of the hill reduced the area to about 48½ acres, only a little short of the normal dimensions of a ‘Camp’ (Golgotha and the Holy Sepulchre, p
War, Holy War - Even the Camp itself must be holy. Hophni and Phineas made the fatal mistake of assuming victory would be guaranteed by bringing a sacred cult object into the Camp, namely, the ark of Yahweh (1 Samuel 4 )
Achan - Each of the twelve tribes of Israel had its own regiment, as we would say, marching and Camping and entering battle under its own ensign; and thus it was that when the armies of Israel marched round Jericho on the way to their miraculous conquest of that city the standard of the tribe of Judah led the sacred host. No one has slept for joy in all the Camp of Israel that night. Look at the Camp of Israel that awful morning! It is the day of judgment, and the great white throne is set in the Valley of Achor before its proper time
Exodus - Here they were commanded "to turn and encamp before Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea", i. They were then led along the west shore of the Red Sea till they came to an extensive Camping-ground "before Pi-hahiroth," about 40 miles from Etham. This distance from Etham may have taken three days to traverse, for the number of Camping-places by no means indicates the number of days spent on the journey: e. , it took fully a month to travel from Rameses to the wilderness of Sin ( Exodus 16:1 ), yet reference is made to only six Camping-places during all that time. The exact spot of their encampment before they crossed the Red Sea cannot be determined. ...
Under the direction of God the children of Israel went "forward" from the Camp "before Pi-hahiroth," and the sea opened a pathway for them, so that they crossed to the farther shore in safety. ...
Having reached the eastern shore of the sea, perhaps a little way to the north of 'Ayun Musa ("the springs of Moses"), there they encamped and rested probably for a day. ...
Their next Camping-place was Elim (q. ...
After a time the children of Israel "took their journey from Elim," and encamped by the Red Sea (Numbers 33:10 ), and thence removed to the "wilderness of Sin" (to be distinguished from the wilderness of Zin, 20:1), where they again encamped. They now turned inland, and after three encampments came to the rich and fertile valley of Rephidim, in the Wady Feiran. " Here they encamped for more than a year (Numbers 1:1 ; 10:11 ) before Sinai (q. ...
The different encampments of the children of Israel, from the time of their leaving Egypt till they reached the Promised Land, are mentioned in Exodus 12:37-19 ; Numbers 1021-21 ; 33 ; Deuteronomy 1,2,10
Criticism - A little later (1850) one of Baur’s disciples, Albrecht Ritschl, threw a bombshell into the Tübingen Camp by starting from the same position as his master, but advancing to very different conclusions
Sacrifice - The burnt offering was wholly burnt upon the altar; the sin offering was in part burnt upon the altar, in part given to the priests, or burnt outside the Camp. (Compare Hebrews 9:7-12 on the typical sin offering on the day of atonement; the inauguration of the Mosaic covenant, Hebrews 9:13-23; the Passover, 1 Corinthians 5:7; the burning of the public or priestly sin offerings without the Camp, Hebrews 13:10-13; the altar of sacrifice typifying His passion, which "we have" as a present and us" though He "knew no sin," 2 Corinthians 5:21)

Nineveh - Thy crowned are as the locusts, and thy captains as the great grasshoppers which Camp in the hedges in the cold day: but when the sun riseth, they flee away; and their place is not known where they are," or were. And if the only spot that bears its name, or that can be said to be the place where it was, be indeed the site of one of the most extensive of cities on which the sun ever shone, and which continued for many centuries to be the capital of Assyria,—the principal mounds, few in number, which show neither bricks, stones, nor other materials of building,—but are in many places overgrown with grass, and resemble the mounds left by intrenchments and fortifications of ancient Roman Camps, and the appearances of other mounds and ruins less marked than even these, extending for ten miles, and widely spread, and seeming to be the wreck of former buildings,—show that Nineveh is left without one monument of royalty, without any token whatever of its splendour or wealth: that their place is not known where they were; and that it is indeed a desolation, "empty, void, and waste," its very ruins perished, and less than the wreck of what it was
Joshua - But it was Joshua alone in all the Camp who was all to Moses that John was to Jesus. And, as God would have it, over and above the selected seventy, there were two exceptional men on whom the Spirit fell also, till Joshua grudged and fretted at the way the people's eyes were drawn off his master and turned to Eldad and Medad as they prophesied in the Camp
Saul - The Philistines were encamped at Geba. Thus roused, the Philistines, who gathered an army of 30,000 chariots and 6,000 horsemen, and "people as the sand which is on the sea-shore in multitude," encamped in Michmash, which Saul had evacuated for Gilgal. "Then Saul went up from following the Philistines: and the Philistines went to their own place" (1 Samuel 14:24-46 ); and thus the Campaign against the Philistines came to an end. Saul and the men of Israel went forth to meet them, and encamped on the northern slope of the same valley which lay between the two armies. ...
After some time the Philistines "gathered themselves together" in the plain of Esdraelon, and pitched their Camp at Shunem, on the slope of Little Hermon; and Saul "gathered all Israel together," and "pitched in Gilboa" (1 Samuel 28:3-14 )

Jehoram - The prophet again and again saved Jehoram by warning him of the position of the Syrian Camp (2 Kings 6:8-12; compare Luke 12:3)
Excommunication (2) - But the ultimate roots of the practice are to be sought in the Pentateuchal legislation, with its exclusion of the ceremonially unclean from the Camp of the congregation (Leviticus 13:45-46, Numbers 5:2-3), and its devotion to destruction (חָרַם, whence חרָם) of whole cities or tribes as enemies of Israel (Matthew 18:15-17; Deuteronomy 3:6; Deuteronomy 7:2; cf

The same reckless and profane impatience appears in Saul; he consults Jehovah by the priest Ahiah (1 Samuel 14:18 read with Septuagint, "bring here the ephod, for he took the ephod that day in the presence of Israel"; for the ark was not usually taken out, but only the ephod, for consultation, and the ark was now at Kirjath Jearim, not in Saul's little Camp); then at the increasing tumult in the Philistine host, impatient to join battle, interrupted the priest, "withdraw thine hand," i
Lots - The act, in the face of the enemies of the Church, was, like the auctioning of the Camp of Hannibal by the Romans, a boldly prudent step, a declaration to all that the Church, was neither cowed by the death of her Lord nor dejected by the suicide of the traitor, but was girding herself for a forward march

Egypt - In this period the nomadic horde called Hyksos for several centuries occupied and made Egypt tributary; their capital was Memphis; they constructed an immense earth-camp, which they called Abaris; two independent kingdoms were formed in Egypt, one in the Thebaid, which held intimate relations with Ethiopia; another at Xois, among the marshes of the Nile; but finally the Egyptians regained their independence, and expelled the Hyksos; Manetho supposes they were called hyksos, from hyk, a king, and sos, a shepherd

At Elisha's prayer the investing host was smitten with blindness (mental, Keil, Genesis 19:11), and Elisha went out to meet them as they came down from their encampment on the hill E. A panic at a fancied sound of Hittite and Egyptian foes, by God's appointment, caused the Syrians to leave theft' Camp and all its contents, and flee for their life
