Cities for the Levites

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:1 -

The Lord again spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan across from Jericho:

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:2 -

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:3 -

“The cities will be for them to live in, and their pasturelands will be for their herds, flocks, and all their other animals.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:4 -

“The pasturelands of the cities you are to give the Levites will extend from the city wall five hundred yards[fn] on every side.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:5 -

“Measure a thousand yards[fn] outside the city for the east side, a thousand yards for the south side, a thousand yards for the west side, and a thousand yards for the north side, with the city in the center. This will belong to them as pasturelands for the cities.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:6 -

“The cities you give the Levites will include six cities of refuge, which you will provide so that the one who kills someone may flee there; in addition to these, give forty-two other cities.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:7 -

“The total number of cities you give the Levites will be forty-eight, along with their pasturelands.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:8 -

“Of the cities that you give from the Israelites’ territory, you should take more from a larger tribe and less from a smaller one. Each tribe is to give some of its cities to the Levites in proportion to the inheritance it receives.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:10 -

“Speak to the Israelites and tell them: When you cross the Jordan into the land of Canaan,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:11 -

“designate cities to serve as cities of refuge for you, so that a person who kills someone unintentionally may flee there.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:12 -

“You will have the cities as a refuge from the avenger, so that the one who kills someone will not die until he stands trial before the assembly.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:13 -

“The cities you select will be your six cities of refuge.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:14 -

“Select three cities across the Jordan and three cities in the land of Canaan to be cities of refuge.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:15 -

“These six cities will serve as a refuge for the Israelites and for the alien or temporary resident among them, so that anyone who kills a person unintentionally may flee there.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:16 -

“If anyone strikes a person with an iron object and death results, he is a murderer; the murderer must be put to death.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:17 -

“If anyone has in his hand a stone capable of causing death and strikes another person and he dies, the murderer must be put to death.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:18 -

“If anyone has in his hand a wooden object capable of causing death and strikes another person and he dies, the murderer must be put to death.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:19 -

“The avenger of blood himself is to kill the murderer; when he finds him, he is to kill him.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:20 -

“Likewise, if anyone in hatred pushes a person or throws an object at him with malicious intent and he dies,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:21 -

“or if in hostility he strikes him with his hand and he dies, the one who struck him must be put to death; he is a murderer. The avenger of blood is to kill the murderer when he finds him.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:22 -

“But if anyone suddenly pushes a person without hostility or throws any object at him without malicious intent

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:23 -

“or without looking drops a stone that could kill a person and he dies, but he was not his enemy and didn’t intend to harm him,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:24 -

“the assembly is to judge between the person who kills someone and the avenger of blood according to these ordinances.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:25 -

“The assembly is to protect the one who kills someone from the avenger of blood. Then the assembly will return him to the city of refuge he fled to, and he must live there until the death of the high priest who was anointed with the holy oil.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:26 -

“If the one who kills someone ever goes outside the border of the city of refuge he fled to,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:27 -

“and the avenger of blood finds him outside the border of his city of refuge and kills him, the avenger will not be guilty of bloodshed,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:28 -

“for the one who killed a person was supposed to live in his city of refuge until the death of the high priest. Only after the death of the high priest may the one who has killed a person return to the land he possesses.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:29 -

“These instructions will be a statutory ordinance for you throughout your generations wherever you live.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:30 -

“If anyone kills a person, the murderer is to be put to death based on the word of witnesses. But no one is to be put to death based on the testimony of one witness.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:31 -

“You are not to accept a ransom for the life of someone who is guilty of murder; he must be put to death.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:32 -

“Neither should you accept a ransom for the person who flees to his city of refuge, allowing him to return and live in the land before the death of the high priest.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:33 -

“Do not defile the land where you live, for bloodshed defiles the land, and there can be no atonement for the land because of the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of the person who shed it.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 35:34 -

“Do not make the land unclean where you live and where I dwell; for I, the Lord, reside among the Israelites.”
