NET © Notes

tn Heb “between blood and blood.”

tn Heb “between claim and claim.”

tn Heb “between blow and blow.”

tn Heb “gates.”

tc Several Greek recensions add “to place his name there,” thus completing the usual formula to describe the central sanctuary (cf. Deut 12:5, 11, 14, 18; 16:6). However, the context suggests that the local Levitical towns, and not the central sanctuary, are in mind.
