Cities are appointed for the Levites. Of which six are to be the cities of refuge.

chapters: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36
351And the Lord spoke these things also to Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan, over against Jericho:haec quoque locutus est Dominus ad Mosen in campestribus Moab super Iordanem contra Hiericho
352Command the children of Israel that they give to the Levites out of their possessions,praecipe filiis Israhel ut dent Levitis de possessionibus suis
353Cities to dwell in, and their suburbs round about: that they may abide in the towns, and the suburbs may be for them cattle and beasts:urbes ad habitandum et suburbana earum per circuitum ut ipsi in oppidis maneant et suburbana sint pecoribus ac iumentis
354Which suburbs shall reach from the walls of the cities outward, a thousand paces on every side:quae a muris civitatum forinsecus per circuitum mille passuum spatio tendentur
355Toward the east shall be two thousand cubits: and toward the south in like manner shall be two thousand cubits: toward the sea also, which looketh to the west, shall be the same extent: and the north side shall be bounded with the like limits. And the cities shall be in the midst, and the suburbs without.contra orientem duo milia erunt cubiti et contra meridiem similiter duo milia ad mare quoque quod respicit occidentem eadem mensura erit et septentrionalis plaga aequali termino finietur eruntque urbes in medio et foris suburbana
356And among the cities, which you shall give to the Levites, six shall be separated for refuge to fugitives, that he who hath shed blood may flee to them: and besides these there shall be other forty-two cities,de ipsis autem oppidis quae Levitis dabitis sex erunt in fugitivorum auxilia separata ut fugiat ad ea qui fuderit sanguinem exceptis his alia quadraginta duo oppida
357That is, in all forty-eight with their suburbs.id est simul quadraginta octo cum suburbanis suis
358And of these cities which shall be given out of the possessions of the children of Israel, from them that have more, more shall be taken: and from them that have less, fewer. Each shall give towns to the Levites according to the extent of their inheritance.ipsaeque urbes quae dabuntur de possessionibus filiorum Israhel ab his qui plus habent plures auferentur et qui minus pauciores singuli iuxta mensuram hereditatis suae dabunt oppida Levitis
359The Lord said to Moses:ait Dominus ad Mosen
3510Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them: When you shall have passed over the Jordan into the land of Chanaan,loquere filiis Israhel et dices ad eos quando transgressi fueritis Iordanem in terram Chanaan
3511Determine what cities shall be for the refuge of fugitives, who have shed blood against their will.decernite quae urbes esse debeant in praesidia fugitivorum qui nolentes sanguinem fuderint
3512And when the fugitive shall be in them, the kinsman of him that is slain may not have power to kill him, until he stand before the multitude, and his cause be judged.in quibus cum fuerit profugus cognatus occisi eum non poterit occidere donec stet in conspectu multitudinis et causa illius iudicetur
3513And of those cities, that are separated for the refuge of fugitives,de ipsis autem urbibus quae ad fugitivorum subsidia separantur
3514Three shall be beyond the Jordan, and three in the land of Chanaan,tres erunt trans Iordanem et tres in terra Chanaan
3515As well for the children of Israel as for strangers and sojourners, that he may flee to them, who hath shed blood against his will.tam filiis Israhel quam advenis atque peregrinis ut confugiat ad eas qui nolens sanguinem fuderit
3516If any man strike with iron, and he die that was struck: he shall be guilty of murder, and he himself shall die.si quis ferro percusserit et mortuus fuerit qui percussus est reus erit homicidii et ipse morietur
3517If he throw a stone, and he that is struck die: he shall be punished in the same manner.si lapidem iecerit et ictus occubuerit similiter punietur
3518If he that is struck with wood die: he shall be revenged by the blood of him that struck him.si ligno percussus interierit percussoris sanguine vindicabitur
3519The kinsman of him that was slain, shall kill the murderer: as soon as he apprehendeth him, he shall kill him.propinquus occisi homicidam interficiet statim ut adprehenderit eum percutiet
3520If through hatred any one push a man, or fling any thing at him with ill design:si per odium quis hominem inpulerit vel iecerit quippiam in eum per insidias
3521Or being his enemy, strike him with his hand, and he die: the striker shall be guilty of murder: the kinsman of him that was slain as soon as he findeth him, shall kill him.aut cum esset inimicus manu percusserit et ille mortuus fuerit percussor homicidii reus erit cognatus occisi statim ut invenerit eum iugulabit
3522But if by chance medley, and without hatred,quod si fortuito et absque odio
3523And enmity, he do any of these things,et inimicitiis quicquam horum fecerit
3524And this be proved in the hearing of the people, and the cause be debated between him that struck, and the next of kin:et hoc audiente populo fuerit conprobatum atque inter percussorem et propinquum sanguinis quaestio ventilata
3525The innocent shall be delivered from the hand of the revenger, and shall be brought back by sentence into the city, to which he had fled, and he shall abide there until the death of the high priest, that is anointed with the holy oil.liberabitur innocens de ultoris manu et reducetur per sententiam in urbem ad quam confugerat manebitque ibi donec sacerdos magnus qui oleo sancto unctus est moriatur
3526If the murderer be found without the limits of the cities that are appointed for the banished,si interfector extra fines urbium quae exulibus deputatae sunt
3527And be struck by him that is the avenger of blood: he shall not be guilty that killed him.fuerit inventus et percussus ab eo qui ultor est sanguinis absque noxa erit qui eum occiderit
3528For the fugitive ought to have stayed in the city until the death of the high priest: and after he is dead, then shall the manslayer return to his own country.debuerat enim profugus usque ad mortem pontificis in urbe residere postquam autem ille obierit homicida revertetur in terram suam
3529These things shall be perpetual, and for an ordinance in all your dwellings.haec sempiterna erunt et legitima in cunctis habitationibus vestris
3530The murderer shall be punished by witnesses: none shall be condemned upon the evidence of one man.homicida sub testibus punietur ad unius testimonium nullus condemnabitur
3531You shall not take money of him that is guilty of blood, but he shall die forthwith.non accipietis pretium ab eo qui reus est sanguinis statim et ipse morietur
3532The banished and fugitives before the death of the high priest may by no means return into their own cities.exules et profugi ante mortem pontificis nullo modo in urbes suas reverti poterunt
3533Defile not the land of your habitation, which is stained with the blood of the innocent: neither can it otherwise be expiated, but by his blood that hath shed the blood of another.ne polluatis terram habitationis vestrae quae insontium cruore maculatur nec aliter expiari potest nisi per eius sanguinem qui alterius sanguinem fuderit
3534And thus shall your possession be cleansed, myself abiding with you. For I am the Lord that dwell among the children of Israel.atque ita emundabitur vestra possessio me commorante vobiscum ego enim sum Dominus qui habito inter filios Israhel
