A” the Lord spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho, saying, 2 Command the children of Israel, that they give unto the Levites of the inheritance of their possession cities to dwell in ; and ye shall give also unto the Levites suburbs for the cities round about them. 3 And the cities shall they have to dwell in ; and the suburbs of them shall be for their cattle, and for their goods, and for all their beasts. - 4 And the suburbs of the cities which ye shall give unto the Levites, shall reach from the wall of the city and outward a thousand cubits round t. 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. 6 And among the cities which ye shall give unto the Levites, there shall be six cities for refuge, which ye shall appoint for the man-slayer, that he may flee 156 The law of murder.
thither: and to them ye shall add forty and two cities. 7 So all the cities which ye shall give t the Levites shall be forty and eight cities: them shall ye give with their suburbs. 8 And the cities which ye shall give shall be of the possession of the children of Israel: from them that have many yeshal. give many; but from them that have few re shall give few : every one shall give ot is cities unto the Levites according to his inheritance which he inheriteth. 9 || And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 10 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, when ye be come over Jordan 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 unawares. 12 And they shall be unto you cities for refuge from the avenger; that the rman-slayer die not, until he stand before the congregation in judgment. 13 And of these cities which ye shall give, six cities shall ye have for refuge. 14 Ye shall give three cities on this side Jordan, and three cities shallye give in the land of Canaan, which shall be cities of refuge. 15. These six cities shall be a o: 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. 16 And if he smite him with an instrument of iron, so that he die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death. 17 And if he smite him with throwing a stone, wherewith he may die, and he die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death. 18 Or if he smite him with an handweapon of wood, wherewith he may die, and he die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death. 19 The revenger of blood himself shall slay the murderer: when he meeteth him, he shall slay him. 20 But if he thrust him of hatred, or hurl at him by laying of wait, that he die; 21 Or in enmity smite him with his hand, that he die: he that smote him shall surely be put to death; for he is a murderer: the revenger of blood shall’ slay the murderer, when he meeteth him. 22 But if he thrust him suddenly without enmity, or have cast upon him any thing without laying of wait, 23 Or with any stone, wherewith a man may die, seeing him not, and cast it upon him, that he die, and was not his enemy, neither sought his harm: 24. Then the congregation shall judge
between the slaver and the revenger of blood according to these judgments: 25, And the congregation shall deliver the slayer out of the hand of the revenger of blood, and the congregauion shall restore him to the city of his refuge, whither he was fled: and he shall abide in it unto the death of the high priest, which was anointed with the holy oil. 26 But if the slayer shall at any time come without the border of the city of his. refuge, whither he was fled; 27 And the revenger of blood find him without the borders of the city of his refuge, and the revenger of blood kill the slayer; he shall not be guilty of blood : 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. . . 29 So these things shall be for a statute of judgment unto you throughout your generations in all your dwellings. 30 Whoso 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, 31 Moreover, ye shall take no satisfaction for the life of a murderer, which is guilty of death : but he shall be surely put to death. 32 And yeshall take no satisfaction for him that is fled to the city of his refuge, that he should come again to dwell in the land, until the death of the priest. 33 So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are : for blood it defileth the land : and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it. 34 Defile not therefore the land which we shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I the LoRD dwell among the children of Israel.

A ND the chief fathers of the families of the children of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of the sons of Joseph, came near, and spake before Moses, and before the princes, the chief fathers of the children of Israel: 2 And they said, The Lorp commanded my lord to give the land for an inheritance by lot to the children of Israel: and my lord was commanded by the Lord to give the inheritance of Zelophehad our brother unto his daughters. 3 And if they be married to any of the sons of the other tribes of the children of Israel, then shall their inheritance be taken from the inheritance of our fathers,
and shall be put to the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they are received : [' so shall it be taken from the lot of our inheritance. 4 And when the jubilee of the children || of Israel shall be, then shall their inheritance be put unto the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they are received : so shall their inheritance be taken away from the inheritance of the tribe of our fathers. 5 And Moses commanded the children of Israel according to the word of the Lord, saying, The tribe of the sons of Joseph hath said well. 6.This is the thing which the Lord doth command concerning the daughters of Zelophehad, saying, Let them marry to whom they think best ; only to the family of the tribe of their father shall they marry. 7 So shall not the inheritance of the children of Israel remove from tribe to tribe: for every one of the children of Israel shall keep himself to the inheritance of the tribe of his fathers.

one of the tribes of the children of Israel shall keep himself to his own inheritance. 10 | Even as the Lord commanded Mo. so did the daughters of Zelophelast : 11, For Mahlali, Tirzah, and Hoglah and Milcah, and Noah, the daughters Zelophehad, were married unto their father's brothers sons: 12 And they were married into the families of the sons of Manasseh the son of Joseph, and their inheritance remained in the tribe of the family of their father. 13 These are the commandments and the judgments, which the Lok D commanded by the hand of Moses unto the
children of Israel in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho.
CHAP. I. 1 Moses in the end of the fortieth year, briefly rehearseth the story, 6 of od's fromise, 34 and his anger for their incredulity, 41 and disobedience. HESE be the words which Moses spake unto all Israel on this side Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain over against the Red sea, between Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth, and Dizahab. 2 (There are eleven days journey from Horeb by the way of mount Seir unto Kadesh-barnea.) 3 And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spake unto the children of Israel, according unto all that the Lor D had given him in commandment unto them ; 4 After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, which dwelt in Heshbon, anal Og the king of Bashan, which dwelt at Astaroth in Edrei: 5 Onthis side Jordan, in the land of Moab, began Moses todeclare this law, saying, 5. The Lon D. our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount:
7 Turn you, and take your journey,
and go to the mount of the Amorites, and tuto all the filaces nigh thereunto, in the plain, in the hills, and in the vale, and in the saith, and by the sea-side, to the land of the Canaanités, and unto Lebanon, un
to the great river, the river Euphrates. 8 Behold, I have set the land before ou : go in and possess the land which the or D sware unto your fathers, Abra

and to their seed after them. 9 And Ispakeuntoyouatthat time, saying, I am notable to bear you myself alone: 10 The Lord your God hath multiplied you, and behold, ye are this day as the stars of heaven for multitude. 11 (The Lord God of your fathers make you a thousand times so many more as ye are, and bless you, as he hath promised you ! 12 Howcan Imyselfalonel earyourcumbrance, and your burden, and your strife? 13 Take ye wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you. 14 And ye answered me, and said, The thing which thou hast spoken is good for us to do. 15 So I took the chief of your tribes, wise men, and known, and made them heads over you, captains over thousands, and o over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captons over tens, and officers among your tribes. 16 And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his bo. and the stranger that is with him. 17 Yeslrall not respect persons in judg
