Encamp: An encampment was the resting-place for a longer or shorter period of an army or company of travellers (Exodus 13:20; 14:19; Joshua 10:5; 11:5) The manner in which the Israelites encamped during their march through the wilderness is described in (Numbers 2:1-3:51) 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; 6:11; 8:17; 10:4,5; 13:46) (Leviticus 14:3; Numbers 12:14,15; 31:19; Deuteronomy 23:10,12) Criminals were executed without the camp (Leviticus 24:14) comp. (John 19:17,20) and there also the young bullock for a sin-offering was burnt comp. (Leviticus 4:12; Hebrews 13:12) In the subsequent history of Israel frequent mention is made of their encampments in the time of war (Judges 7:18; 1 Samuel 13:2,3,16,23; 17:3; 29:1) (1 Samuel 30:9,24) The temple was sometimes called "the camp of the Lord" (2 Chronicles 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" (1 Chronicles 12:22)
