whenever a case comes to you from your brothers who live in their cities, concerning bloodshed, law or commandment, statutes or rules, then you shall warn them, that they may not incur guilt before the LORD and wrath may not come upon you and your brothers.

and so wrath come upon you and your children;
upon judges for the neglect of their duty in giving due warning,
and upon the people for not taking it when given:
this do, and ye shall not trespass;
if the above charge in all its parts is strictly attended to.
