Well, I guess it’s time for me to make an apology. Earlier I was saying how ridiculous it was to think the Israelites could move around and make and break camp with any semblance of order because of their massive numbers and no means of rapid communication. But now I’ve got to eat those words, because in Numbers 10:1-2, God commands Moses to make two silver trumpets!

That’s right, two silver trumpets will be used to signal three million Israelites. So you see, how could the Israelites not make efficient assemblies now? I mean, pitching a million tents hardly seems like a chore now that there are two trumpets to guide them. Need to pack up a million tents sprawled over miles and miles of rocky desert? Not a problem, we’ve got you covered with two trumpets! And these aren’t ordinary trumpets like those silly animal horns, we’re talking silver baby! These are trumpets of the gods!

Presumably they're magic horns.

Actually, that could solve a lot of these problems in the Bible: just say a wizard did it.
