The suburbes also aboute the cities shal ye geue vnto the Leuites, 3 that they maye dwell in the cities, and in the suburbes to haue their catell, and substaunce, and all their beestes. 4 The suburbes which ye geue vnto ye Leuites, shal reache fro the wall of ye cite outwarde, a M. cubites rounde aboute. 5 Thus ye shal measure without the cite on ye East syde, two thousande cubites: & on ye South syde, two thousande cubites: & on ye West syde, two thousande cubites: & on ye North syde, two thousande cubites, so yt the cite be in the myddes. This shal be their suburbes. 6 And amoge the cities which ye shal geue vnto the Leuites, ye shall geue the sixe fre cities, that he which comitteth a slaughter, maie flye thither. Besydes the same ye shal geue the yet two & fourtie cities: 7 so yt all ye cities which ye geue vnto ye Leuites, be eight & fourtye wt their suburbes. 8 And of ye same ye shal geue the more, from the yt haue moch in possession amonge the children of Israel: & the lesse from them, that haue litle in possession.
