Numbers 35


35:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan
 [near] Jericho, saying,
35:2 Command the children of Israel, that they give to the
 Levites of the inheritance of their possession cities to dwell
 in; and ye shall give [also] to the Levites suburbs for the
 cities around them.
35:3 And they shall have the cities to dwell in; and the suburbs
 of them shall be for their cattle, and for their goods, and for
 all their beasts.
35:4 And the suburbs of the cities which ye shall give to the
 Levites, [shall reach] from the wall of the city and outward a
 thousand cubits on all sides.
35:5 And ye shall measure from without the city on the east side
 two thousand cubits, and on the south side two thousand cubits,
 and on the west side two thousand cubits, and on the north side
 two thousand cubits; and the city [shall be] in the midst: this
 shall be to them the suburbs of the cities.
35:6 And among the cities which ye shall give to the Levites
 [there shall be] six cities for refuge, which ye shall appoint
 for the man-slayer, that he may flee thither: and to them ye
 shall add forty and two cities.
35:7 [So] all the cities which ye shall give to the Levites
 [shall be] forty and eight cities: them [shall ye give] with
 their suburbs.
35:8 And the cities which ye shall give [shall be] of the
 possession of the children of Israel: from [them that have]
 many ye shall give many; but from [them that have] few ye shall
 give few: every one shall give of his cities to the Levites
 according to his inheritance which he inheriteth.
35:9 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
35:10 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, When ye
 have passed over Jordan into the land of Canaan;
35:11 Then ye shall appoint for you cities to be cities of
 refuge for you; that the slayer may flee thither, who killeth
 any person at unawares.
35:12 And they shall be to you cities for refuge from the
 avenger; that the man-slayer may not die, until he stands
 before the congregation in judgment.
35:13 And of these cities which ye shall give, six cities shall
 ye have for refuge.
35:14 Ye shall give three cities on this side of Jordan, and
 three cities shall ye give in the land of Canaan, [which] shall
 be cities of refuge.
35:15 These six cities shall be a refuge, [both] for the
 children of Israel, and for the stranger, and for the sojourner
 among them: that every one that killeth any person unawares may
 flee thither.
35:16 And if he shall smite him with an instrument of iron, so
 that he shall die, he [is] a murderer: the murderer shall
 surely be put to death.
35:17 And if he shall smite him by throwing a stone, by which he
 may die, and he shall die, he [is] a murderer: the murderer
 shall surely be put to death.
35:18 Or [if] he shall smite him with a hand-weapon of wood,
 with which he may die, and he shall die, he [is] a murderer:
 the murderer shall surely be put to death.
35:19 The avenger of blood himself shall slay the murderer: when
 he meeteth him, he shall slay him.
35:20 But if he shall thrust him of hatred, or hurl at him by
 laying in wait, that he die.
35:21 Or in enmity shall smite him with his hand, that he die:
 he that smote [him] shall surely be put to death; [for] he [is]
 a murderer: the avenger of blood shall slay the murderer, when
 he meeteth him.
35:22 But if he shall thrust him suddenly without enmity, or
 shall have cast upon him any thing without laying in wait,
35:23 Or with any stone, by which a man may die, seeing [him]
 not, and shall cast [it] upon him, that he die, and [was] not
 his enemy, neither sought his harm:
35:24 Then the congregation shall judge between the slayer and
 the avenger of blood according to these judgments:
35:25 And the congregation shall deliver the slayer out of the
 hand of the avenger of blood, and the congregation shall
 restore him to the city of his refuge, whither he had fled: and
 he shall abide in it to the death of the high priest, who was
 anointed with the holy oil.
35:26 But if the slayer shall at any time come without the
 border of the city of his refuge, whither he had fled;
35:27 And the avenger of blood find him without the borders of
 the city of his refuge, and the avenger of blood shall kill the
 slayer; he shall not be guilty of blood:
35:28 Because he should have remained in the city of his refuge
 until the death of the high priest: but after the death of the
 high priest the slayer shall return into the land of his
 possession.
35:29 So these [things] shall be for a statute of judgment to
 you throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
35:30 Whoever killeth any person, the murderer shall be put to
 death by the mouth of witnesses: but one witness shall not
 testify against any person [to cause him] to die.
35:31 Moreover, ye shall take no satisfaction for the life of a
 murderer, who [is] guilty of death: but he shall be surely put
 to death.
35:32 And ye shall take no satisfaction for him that hath fled
 to the city of his refuge, that he should come again to dwell
 in the land, until the death of the priest.
35:33 So ye shall not pollute the land in which ye [are]: for
 blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of
 the blood that is shed in it, but by the blood of him that shed
 it.
35:34 Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit, in
 which I dwell: for I the LORD dwell among the children of
 Israel.
