Numbers 35:9-34

And the LORD
<03068>
spake
<01696> (8762)
unto Moses
<04872>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Speak
<01696> (8761)
unto the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and say
<0559> (8804)
unto them, When ye be come over
<05674> (8802)
Jordan
<03383>
into the land
<0776>
of Canaan
<03667>_;
Then ye shall appoint
<07136> (8689)
you cities
<05892>
to be cities
<05892>
of refuge
<04733>
for you; that the slayer
<07523> (8802)
may flee
<05127> (8804)
thither, which killeth
<05221> (8688)
any person
<05315>
at unawares
<07684>_.
{at...: Heb. by error}
And they shall be unto you cities
<05892>
for refuge
<04733>
from the avenger
<01350> (8802)_;
that the manslayer
<07523> (8802)
die
<04191> (8799)
not, until he stand
<05975> (8800)
before
<06440>
the congregation
<05712>
in judgment
<04941>_.
And of these cities
<05892>
which ye shall give
<05414> (8799)
six
<08337>
cities
<05892>
shall ye have for refuge
<04733>_.
Ye shall give
<05414> (8799)
three
<07969>
cities
<05892>
on this side
<05676>
Jordan
<03383>_,
and three
<07969>
cities
<05892>
shall ye give
<05414> (8799)
in the land
<0776>
of Canaan
<03667>_,
[which] shall be cities
<05892>
of refuge
<04733>_.
These six
<08337>
cities
<05892>
shall be a refuge
<04733>_,
[both] for the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and for the stranger
<01616>_,
and for the sojourner
<08453>
among
<08432>
them: that every one that killeth
<05221> (8688)
any person
<05315>
unawares
<07684>
may flee
<05127> (8800)
thither.
And if he smite
<05221> (8689)
him with an instrument
<03627>
of iron
<01270>_,
so that he die
<04191> (8799)_,
he [is] a murderer
<07523> (8802)_:
the murderer
<07523> (8802)
shall surely
<04191> (8800)
be put to death
<04191> (8714)_.
And if he smite
<05221> (8689)
him with throwing
<03027>
a stone
<068>_,
wherewith he may die
<04191> (8799)_,
and he die
<04191> (8799)_,
he [is] a murderer
<07523> (8802)_:
the murderer
<07523> (8802)
shall surely
<04191> (8800)
be put to death
<04191> (8714)_.
{with...: Heb. with a stone of the hand}
Or [if] he smite
<05221> (8689)
him with an hand
<03027>
weapon
<03627>
of wood
<06086>_,
wherewith he may die
<04191> (8799)_,
and he die
<04191> (8799)_,
he [is] a murderer
<07523> (8802)_:
the murderer
<07523> (8802)
shall surely
<04191> (8800)
be put to death
<04191> (8714)_.
The revenger
<01350> (8802)
of blood
<01818>
himself shall slay
<04191> (8686)
the murderer
<07523> (8802)_:
when he meeteth
<06293> (8800)
him, he
<01931>
shall slay
<04191> (8686)
him.
But if he thrust
<01920> (8799)
him of hatred
<08135>_,
or hurl
<07993> (8689)
at him by laying of wait
<06660>_,
that he die
<04191> (8799)_;
Or in enmity
<0342>
smite
<05221> (8689)
him with his hand
<03027>_,
that he die
<04191> (8799)_:
he that smote
<05221> (8688)
[him] shall surely
<04191> (8800)
be put to death
<04191> (8714)_;
[for] he [is] a murderer
<07523> (8802)_:
the revenger
<01350> (8802)
of blood
<01818>
shall slay
<04191> (8686)
the murderer
<07523> (8802)_,
when he meeteth
<06293> (8800)
him.
But if he thrust
<01920> (8804)
him suddenly
<06621>
without
<03808>
enmity
<0342>_,
or have cast
<07993> (8689)
upon him any thing
<03627>
without laying of wait
<06660>_,
Or with any stone
<068>_,
wherewith a man may die
<04191> (8799)_,
seeing
<07200> (8800)
[him] not
<03808>_,
and cast
<05307> (8686)
[it] upon him, that he die
<04191> (8799)_,
and [was] not his enemy
<0341> (8802)_,
neither sought
<01245> (8764)
his harm
<07451>_:
Then the congregation
<05712>
shall judge
<08199> (8804)
between the slayer
<05221> (8688)
and the revenger
<01350> (8802)
of blood
<01818>
according to these judgments
<04941>_:
And the congregation
<05712>
shall deliver
<05337> (8689)
the slayer
<07523> (8802)
out of the hand
<03027>
of the revenger
<01350> (8802)
of blood
<01818>_,
and the congregation
<05712>
shall restore
<07725> (8689)
him to the city
<05892>
of his refuge
<04733>_,
whither he was fled
<05127> (8804)_:
and he shall abide
<03427> (8804)
in it unto the death
<04194>
of the high
<01419>
priest
<03548>_,
which was anointed
<04886> (8804)
with the holy
<06944>
oil
<08081>_.
But if the slayer
<07523> (8802)
shall at any time
<03318> (8800)
come
<03318> (8799)
without the border
<01366>
of the city
<05892>
of his refuge
<04733>_,
whither he was fled
<05127> (8799)_;
And the revenger
<01350> (8802)
of blood
<01818>
find
<04672> (8804)
him without
<02351>
the borders
<01366>
of the city
<05892>
of his refuge
<04733>_,
and the revenger
<01350> (8802)
of blood
<01818>
kill
<07523> (8804)
the slayer
<07523> (8802)_;
he shall not be guilty of blood
<01818>_:
{he...: Heb. no blood shall be to him}
Because he should have remained
<03427> (8799)
in the city
<05892>
of his refuge
<04733>
until the death
<04194>
of the high
<01419>
priest
<03548>_:
but after
<0310>
the death
<04194>
of the high
<01419>
priest
<03548>
the slayer
<07523> (8802)
shall return
<07725> (8799)
into the land
<0776>
of his possession
<0272>_.
So these [things] shall be for a statute
<02708>
of judgment
<04941>
unto you throughout your generations
<01755>
in all your dwellings
<04186>_.
Whoso killeth
<05221> (8688)
any person
<05315>_,
the murderer
<07523> (8802)
shall be put to death
<07523> (8799)
by the mouth
<06310>
of witnesses
<05707>_:
but one
<0259>
witness
<05707>
shall not testify
<06030> (8799)
against any person
<05315>
[to cause him] to die
<04191> (8800)_.
Moreover ye shall take
<03947> (8799)
no satisfaction
<03724>
for the life
<05315>
of a murderer
<07523> (8802)_,
which [is] guilty
<07563>
of death
<04191> (8800)_:
but he shall be surely
<04191> (8800)
put to death
<04191> (8714)_.
{guilty...: Heb. faulty to die}
And ye shall take
<03947> (8799)
no satisfaction
<03724>
for him that is fled
<05127> (8800)
to the city
<05892>
of his refuge
<04733>_,
that he should come again
<07725> (8800)
to dwell
<03427> (8800)
in the land
<0776>_,
until the death
<04194>
of the priest
<03548>_.
So ye shall not pollute
<02610> (8686)
the land
<0776>
wherein ye [are]: for blood
<01818>
it defileth
<02610> (8686)
the land
<0776>_:
and the land
<0776>
cannot be cleansed
<03722> (8792)
of the blood
<01818>
that is shed
<08210> (8795)
therein, but by the blood
<01818>
of him that shed
<08210> (8802)
it. {the land cannot...: Heb. there can be no expiation for the land}
Defile
<02930> (8762)
not therefore the land
<0776>
which ye shall inhabit
<03427> (8802)_,
wherein
<08432>
I dwell
<07931> (8802)_:
for I the LORD
<03068>
dwell
<07931> (8802)
among
<08432>
the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_.
