Numbers 2:1-4

Num 2:1  Yahveh spoke to Moses and Aaron, and this is what he said,
Num 2:2  “The sons of Israel will camp each by his own standard, with the flags of their fathers’ houses. They will camp around the conference tent at a distance.
Num 2:3  Those to camp on the east side toward the sunrise will be of the standard of the camp of Judah by their companies, the general from the people of Judah being Nachshon the son of Amminadab,
Num 2:4  his company as mustered being 74,600.

my relative is noble

General Nachshon’s father was Amminadab, whose name means “my relative is noble.” Although Judah was not perfect, he did establish a family that our Lord chose to enter into this world as a part of. The first army of the emerging nation of the Israelites was led by noble stock.

LORD, thank you for our families. Although none of us is perfect, you have chosen to bless us with them, and commanded us to be a blessing to them.
