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.).
