tn Heb “he”; the referent (the one who accidentally kills another, cf. v. 2) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Heb “and speak into the ears of the elders of that city his words.”

tn Heb “and they should gather him into the city to themselves, give to him a place, and he will live with them.”
