WhenH3588 the LORDH3068 your GodH430 has cutH3772 off the nations,H1471 whoseH834 landH776 the LORDH3068 your GodH430 givesH5414 you, and you succeedH3423 them, and dwellH3427 in their cities,H5892 and in their houses;H1004
You shall separateH914 threeH7969 citiesH5892 for you in the middleH8432 of your land,H776 whichH834 the LORDH3068 your GodH430 givesH5414 you to possessH3423 it.
You shall prepareH3559 you a way,H1870 and divide the coastsH1366 of your land,H776 whichH834 the LORDH3068 your GodH430 gives you to inherit,H5157 into threeH8027 parts, that everyH3605 slayerH7523 may fleeH5127 thither.H8033
And thisH2088 is the caseH1697 of the slayer,H7523 whichH834 shall fleeH5127 thither,H8033 that he may live:H2425 WhoeverH834 killsH5221 his neighborH7453 ignorantly,H1097 H1847 whom he hatedH8130 not in timeH8543 H8032 past;H8032
As whenH834 a man goesH935 into the woodH3293 with his neighborH7453 to hewH2404 wood,H6086 and his handH3027 fetchesH5080 a stroke with the axH1631 to cutH3772 down the tree,H6086 and the headH1270 slipsH5394 from the helve,H6086 and lightsH4672 on his neighbor,H7453 that he die;H4191 he shall fleeH5127 to oneH259 of thoseH428 cities,H5892 and live:H2425
LestH6435 the avengerH1350 of the bloodH1818 pursueH7291 the slayer,H7523 whileH3588 his heartH3824 is hot,H3179 and overtakeH5381 him, becauseH3588 the wayH1870 is long,H7235 and slayH5221 him; whereas he was not worthy of death,H4194 inasmuchH3588 as he hatedH8130 him not in timeH8543 H8032 past.H8032
WhyH5921 H3651 I commandH6680 you, saying,H559 You shall separateH914 threeH7969 citiesH5892 for you.
And ifH518 the LORDH3068 your GodH430 enlargeH7337 your coast,H1366 as he has swornH7650 to your fathers,H1 and giveH5414 you allH3605 the landH776 whichH834 he promisedH1696 to giveH5414 to your fathers;H1
IfH3588 you shall keepH8104 allH3605 theseH2063 commandmentsH4687 to doH6213 them, whichH834 I commandH6680 you this day,H3117 to loveH157 the LORDH3068 your God,H430 and to walkH3212 everH3605 H3117 in his ways;H1870 then shall you addH3254 three citiesH5892 moreH5750 for you, besideH5921 these three:H7969
That innocentH5355 bloodH1818 be not shedH8210 in your land,H776 whichH834 the LORDH3068 your GodH430 givesH5414 you for an inheritance,H5159 and so bloodH1818 be on you.
But ifH3588 any manH376 hateH8130 his neighbor,H7453 and lieH693 in waitH693 for him, and riseH6965 up againstH5921 him, and smiteH5221 him mortallyH5315 that he die,H4191 and fleesH5127 intoH413 oneH259 of theseH411 cities:H5892
Then the eldersH2205 of his cityH5892 shall sendH7971 and fetchH3947 him there,H8033 and deliverH5414 him into the handH3027 of the avengerH1350 of blood,H1818 that he may die.H4191
Your eyeH5869 shall not pityH2347 him, but you shall putH1197 awayH1197 the guilt of innocentH5355 bloodH1818 from Israel,H3478 that it may go wellH2895 with you.
You shall not removeH5253 your neighbor'sH7453 landmark,H1366 whichH834 they of oldH7223 time have setH1379 in your inheritance,H5159 whichH834 you shall inheritH5157 in the landH776 that the LORDH3068 your GodH430 givesH5414 you to possessH3423 it.
OneH259 witnessH5707 shall not riseH6965 up against a manH376 for anyH3605 iniquity,H5771 or for anyH3605 sin,H2403 in anyH3605 sinH2399 that he sins:H2398 atH5921 the mouthH6310 of twoH8147 witnesses,H5707 or atH5921 the mouthH6310 of threeH7969 witnesses,H5707 shall the matterH1697 be established.H6965
IfH3588 a falseH2555 witnessH5707 riseH6965 up against any manH376 to testifyH6030 against him that which is wrong;H5627
Then bothH8147 the men,H582 between whomH834 H1992 the controversyH7379 is, shall standH5975 beforeH6440 the LORD,H3068 beforeH6440 the priestsH3548 and the judges,H8199 whichH834 shall be in thoseH1992 days;H3117
And the judgesH8199 shall make diligentH3190 inquisition:H1875 and, behold,H2009 if the witnessH5707 be a falseH8267 witness,H5707 and has testifiedH6030 falselyH8267 against his brother;H251
Then shall you doH6213 to him, as he had thoughtH2161 to have doneH6213 to his brother:H251 so shall you putH1197 the evilH7451 awayH1197 from amongH7130 you.
And those which remainH7604 shall hear,H8085 and fear,H3372 and shall from now onH3254 commitH6213 noH3808 moreH5750 anyH1697 such evilH7451 amongH7130 you.
And your eyeH5869 shall not pity;H2347 but lifeH5315 shall go for life,H5315 eyeH5869 for eye,H5869 toothH8127 for tooth,H8127 handH3027 for hand,H3027 footH7272 for foot.H7272
