as they encamp, so shall they set forward, every man in his place, by their standards.

18On the west side shall be the standard of the camp of Ephraim according to their hosts; the prince of the children of Ephraim being Elishama the son of Ammihud, 19and his host, and those that were numbered of them, forty thousand and five hundred; 20and next unto him shall be the tribe of Manasseh; the prince of the children of Manasseh being Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur, 21and his host, and those that were numbered of them, thirty and two thousand and two hundred; 22and the tribe of Benjamin; the prince of the children of Benjamin being Abidan the son of Gideoni, 23and his host, and those that were numbered of them, thirty and five thousand and four hundred; 24all that were numbered of the camp of Ephraim being a hundred thousand and eight thousand and a hundred, according to their hosts; and they shall set forth third.
