2 H1696 "Speak H1121 to the children H3478 of Israel, H559 saying, H5892 ‘Assign the cities H4733 of refuge, H1696 of which I spoke H5414 to you H3027 by H4872 Moses,
3 H7523 that the manslayer H5221 who kills H5315 any person H7684 accidentally H1847 or unintentionally H5127 may flee H4733 there. They shall be to you for a refuge H1350 from the avenger H1818 of blood.
4 H5127 He shall flee H259 to one H5892 of those cities, H5975 and shall stand H6607 at the entrance H8179 of the gate H5892 of the city, H1696 and declare H1697 his cause H241 in the ears H2205 of the elders H5892 of that city. H622 They shall take H5892 him into the city H5414 with them, and give H4725 him a place, H3427 that he may live among them.
5 H1350 If the avenger H1818 of blood H7291 pursue H310 after H5462 him, then they shall not deliver H7523 up the manslayer H3027 into his hand; H5221 because he struck H7453 his neighbor H1097 unintentionally, H8130 and didn't hate H8543 him before.
6 H3427 He shall dwell H5892 in that city H5975 until he stands H6440 before H5712 the congregation H4941 for judgment, H4194 until the death H1419 of the high H3548 priest H834 that H3117 shall be in those days. H7523 Then the manslayer H7725 shall return, H935 and come H5892 to his own city, H1004 and to his own house, H5892 to the city H5127 he fled from.'"
7 H6942 They set apart H6943 Kedesh H1551 in Galilee H2022 in the hill country H5321 of Naphtali, H7927 Shechem H2022 in the hill H669 country of Ephraim, H7153 and Kiriath Arba H2275 (the same is Hebron) H2022 in the hill country H3063 of Judah.
8 H5676 Beyond H3383 the Jordan H3405 at Jericho H4217 eastward, H5414 they assigned H1221 Bezer H4057 in the wilderness H4334 in the plain H4294 out of the tribe H7205 of Reuben, H7216 Ramoth H1568 in Gilead H4294 out of the tribe H1410 of Gad, H1474 and Golan H1316 in Bashan H4294 out of the tribe H4519 of Manasseh.
9 H4152 These were the appointed H5892 cities H1121 for all the children H3478 of Israel, H1616 and for the alien H1481 who lives H8432 among H5221 them, that whoever kills H5315 any person H7684 unintentionally H5127 might flee H4191 there, and not die H3027 by the hand H1350 of the avenger H1818 of blood, H5975 until he stands H6440 before H5712 the congregation.
