Dictionary Mode: easton:Encamp
Encamp @ An encampment was the resting-place for a longer or shorter period of an army or company of travellers Exodus:13:20 Exodus:14:19; Joshua:10:5 Joshua:11:5). The manner in which the Israelites encamped during their march through the wilderness is described in Numbers:2 and 3. The order of the encampment (see CAMP) was preserved in the march Numbers:2:17), the signal for which was the blast of two silver trumpets. Detailed regulations affecting the camp for sanitary purposes are given Leviticus:4:11-12 Leviticus:6:11 Leviticus:8:17 ; 10:4-5; 13:46; 14:3; Numbers:12:14-15 Numbers:31:19; Deuteronomy:23:10-12). Criminals were executed without the camp Leviticus:4:12; comp. John:19:17 John:19:20), and there also the young bullock for a sin-offering was burnt Leviticus:24:14; comp. Hebrews:13:12). In the subsequent history of Israel frequent mention is made of their encampments in the time of war Judges:7:18; 1Samuel:13:2-3, 16, 23; 17:3; 29:1; 30:9,24). The temple was sometimes called "the camp of the Lord" ( 2Chronicals:31:2, R.V.; comp. Psalms:78:28). The multitudes who flocked to David are styled "a great host (i.e., "camp;" Heb. mahaneh), like the host of God" ( 1Chronicles:12:22).
