“¶ And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying,”
King James Version (KJV)
6. And among the cities which yee shal giue vnto the Leuites, there shalbe sixe cities for refuge, which ye shall appoint for the manslayer, that hee may flee thither: And to them ye shall adde fourty and two cities. 7. So all the cities which ye shall giue to the Leuites, shall be fourty and eight cities: them shall yee giue with their suburbs. 8. And the cities which ye shal giue, shalbe of the possession of the children of Israel: from them that haue many ye shall giue many; but from them that haue few, ye shall giue few. Euery one shal giue of his cities vnto the Leuites, according to his inheritance which he inheriteth. 9. ¶ And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying, 10. Speake vnto the children of Israel, and say vnto them, When ye bee come ouer Iordane, into the land of Canaan: 11. Then ye shall appoint you cities, to be cities of refuge for you; that the slayer may flee thither which killeth any person at vnawares. 12. And they shall be vnto you cities for refuge from the auenger, that the man-slayer die not, vntill he stand before the Congregation in iudgement.
