Listen to this chapter in Hebrew:

1  And Hashem spoke unto Moshe and unto Aharon, saying:

א  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל מֹשֶׁה וְאֶל אַהֲרֹן לֵאמֹר.

2  ‘B’nei Yisrael shall pitch by their fathers’ houses; every man with his own standard, according to the ensigns; a good way off shall they pitch round about the Tent of Meeting.

ב  אִישׁ עַל דִּגְלוֹ בְאֹתֹת לְבֵית אֲבֹתָם יַחֲנוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל מִנֶּגֶד סָבִיב לְאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד יַחֲנוּ.

3  Now those that pitch on the east side toward the sunrising shall be they of the standard of the camp of Yehuda, according to their hosts; the prince of the children of Yehuda being Nakhshon the son of Amminadav,

v’-ha-kho-NEEM KAY-d’-mah miz-RA-khah DE-gel ma-kha-NAY y’-hu-DAH l’-tziv-o-TAM v’-na-SEE liv-NAY y’-hu-DAH nakh-SHON ben a-mee-na-DAV

ג  וְהַחֹנִים קֵדְמָה מִזְרָחָה דֶּגֶל מַחֲנֵה יְהוּדָה לְצִבְאֹתָם וְנָשִׂיא לִבְנֵי יְהוּדָה נַחְשׁוֹן בֶּן עַמִּינָדָב.

2:3   Now those that pitch on the east side… the camp of Yehuda

As the forebear of the Davinic dynasty, Yehuda was given a place of honor in the Israelite camp. When they rested, his tribe camped on the east side of the Mishkan, the direction from which the sun rises each day. And when they travelled, his tribe travelled first, leading the nation on its journey through the desert.
