Joshua 20

The LORD
<03068>
also spake
<01696> (8762)
unto Joshua
<03091>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Speak
<01696> (8761)
to the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Appoint out
<05414> (8798)
for you cities
<05892>
of refuge
<04733>_,
whereof I spake
<01696> (8765)
unto you by the hand
<03027>
of Moses
<04872>_:
That the slayer
<07523> (8802)
that killeth
<05221> (8688)
[any] person
<05315>
unawares
<07684>
[and] unwittingly
<01847>
may flee
<05127> (8800)
thither: and they shall be your refuge
<04733>
from the avenger
<01350> (8802)
of blood
<01818>_.
And when he that doth flee
<05127> (8804)
unto one
<0259>
of those cities
<05892>
shall stand
<05975> (8804)
at the entering
<06607>
of the gate
<08179>
of the city
<05892>_,
and shall declare
<01696> (8765)
his cause
<01697>
in the ears
<0241>
of the elders
<02205>
of that city
<05892>_,
they shall take
<0622> (8804)
him into the city
<05892>
unto them, and give
<05414> (8804)
him a place
<04725>_,
that he may dwell
<03427> (8804)
among them.
And if the avenger
<01350> (8802)
of blood
<01818>
pursue
<07291> (8799)
after
<0310>
him, then they shall not deliver
<05462> (8686)
the slayer
<07523> (8802)
up into his hand
<03027>_;
because he smote
<05221> (8689)
his neighbour
<07453>
unwittingly
<01097> <01847>_,
and hated
<08130> (8802)
him not beforetime
<08543> <08032>_.
And he shall dwell
<03427> (8804)
in that city
<05892>_,
until he stand
<05975> (8800)
before
<06440>
the congregation
<05712>
for judgment
<04941>_,
[and] until the death
<04194>
of the high
<01419>
priest
<03548>
that
<0834>
shall be in those days
<03117>_:
then shall the slayer
<07523> (8802)
return
<07725> (8799)_,
and come
<0935> (8804)
unto his own city
<05892>_,
and unto his own house
<01004>_,
unto the city
<05892>
from whence he fled
<05127> (8804)_.
And they appointed
<06942> (8686)
Kedesh
<06943>
in Galilee
<01551>
in mount
<02022>
Naphtali
<05321>_,
and Shechem
<07927>
in mount
<02022>
Ephraim
<0669>_,
and Kirjatharba
<07153>_,
which [is] Hebron
<02275>_,
in the mountain
<02022>
of Judah
<03063>_.
{appointed: Heb. sanctified}
And on the other side
<05676>
Jordan
<03383>
by Jericho
<03405>
eastward
<04217>_,
they assigned
<05414> (8804)
Bezer
<01221>
in the wilderness
<04057>
upon the plain
<04334>
out of the tribe
<04294>
of Reuben
<07205>_,
and Ramoth
<07216>
in Gilead
<01568>
out of the tribe
<04294>
of Gad
<01410>_,
and Golan
<01474>
in Bashan
<01316>
out of the tribe
<04294>
of Manasseh
<04519>_.
These were the cities
<05892>
appointed
<04152>
for all the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and for the stranger
<01616>
that sojourneth
<01481> (8802)
among
<08432>
them, that whosoever killeth
<05221> (8688)
[any] person
<05315>
at unawares
<07684>
might flee
<05127> (8800)
thither, and not die
<04191> (8799)
by the hand
<03027>
of the avenger
<01350> (8802)
of blood
<01818>_,
until he stood
<05975> (8800)
before
<06440>
the congregation
<05712>_.
