Numbers 35

NCV 1 The Lord spoke to Moses on the plains of Moab across from Jericho by the Jordan River. He said, NIV 1 On the plains of Moab by the Jordan across from Jericho, the LORD said to Moses, NCV 2 "Command the Israelites to give the Levites cities to live in from the land they receive. Also give the Levites the pastureland around these cities. NIV 2 “Command the Israelites to give the Levites towns to live in from the inheritance the Israelites will possess. And give them pasturelands around the towns. NCV 3 Then the Levites will have cities where they may live and pastureland for their cattle, flocks, and other animals. NIV 3 Then they will have towns to live in and pasturelands for the cattle they own and all their other animals. NCV 4 The pastureland you give the Levites will extend fifteen hundred feet from the city wall. NIV 4 “The pasturelands around the towns that you give the Levites will extend a thousand cubits from the town wall. NCV 5 Also measure three thousand feet in each direction outside the city wall -- three thousand feet east of the city, three thousand feet south of the city, three thousand feet west of the city, and three thousand feet north of the city, with the city in the center. This will be pastureland for the Levites' cities. NIV 5 Outside the town, measure two thousand cubits on the east side, two thousand on the south side, two thousand on the west and two thousand on the north, with the town in the center. They will have this area as pastureland for the towns. NCV 6 "Six of the cities you give the Levites will be cities of safety. A person who accidentally kills someone may run to one of those cities for safety. You must also give forty-two other cities to the Levites; NIV 6 “Six of the towns you give the Levites will be cities of refuge, to which a person who has killed someone may flee. In addition, give them forty-two other towns. NCV 7 give the Levites a total of forty-eight cities and their pastures. NIV 7 In all you must give the Levites forty-eight towns, together with their pasturelands. NCV 8 The larger tribes of Israel must give more cities, and the smaller tribes must give fewer cities. Each tribe must give some of its cities to the Levites, but the number of cities they give will depend on the size of their land." NIV 8 The towns you give the Levites from the land the Israelites possess are to be given in proportion to the inheritance of each tribe: Take many towns from a tribe that has many, but few from one that has few.” NCV 9 Then the Lord said to Moses, NIV 9 Then the LORD said to Moses: NCV 10 "Tell the Israelites these things: 'When you cross the Jordan River and go into Canaan, NIV 10 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you cross the Jordan into Canaan, NCV 11 you must choose cities to be cities of safety, so that a person who accidentally kills someone may run to them for safety. NIV 11 select some towns to be your cities of refuge, to which a person who has killed someone accidentally may flee. NCV 12 There the person will be safe from the dead person's relative who has the duty of punishing the killer. He will not die before he receives a fair trial in court. NIV 12 They will be places of refuge from the avenger, so that anyone accused of murder may not die before they stand trial before the assembly. NCV 13 The six cities you give will be cities of safety. NIV 13 These six towns you give will be your cities of refuge. NCV 14 Give three cities east of the Jordan River and three cities in Canaan as cities of safety. NIV 14 Give three on this side of the Jordan and three in Canaan as cities of refuge. NCV 15 These six cities will be places of safety for citizens of Israel, as well as for foreigners and other people living with you. Any of these people who accidentally kills someone may run to one of these cities. NIV 15 These six towns will be a place of refuge for Israelites and for foreigners residing among them, so that anyone who has killed another accidentally can flee there. NCV 16 "'Anyone who uses an iron weapon to kill someone is a murderer. He must be put to death. NIV 16 “ ‘If anyone strikes someone a fatal blow with an iron object, that person is a murderer; the murderer is to be put to death.

NIV 19 The avenger of blood shall put the murderer to death; when the avenger comes upon the murderer, the avenger shall put the murderer to death. NCV 20 A person might shove someone or throw something at someone and cause death. NIV 20 If anyone with malice aforethought shoves another or throws something at them intentionally so that they die NCV 21 Or a person might hit someone with his hand and cause death. If it were done from hate, the person is a murderer and must be put to death. A relative of the dead person must kill the murderer when they meet. NIV 21 or if out of enmity one person hits another with their fist so that the other dies, that person is to be put to death; that person is a murderer. The avenger of blood shall put the murderer to death when they meet. NCV 22 "'But a person might suddenly shove someone, and not from hatred. Or a person might accidentally throw something and hit someone. NIV 22 “ ‘But if without enmity someone suddenly pushes another or throws something at them unintentionally NCV 23 Or a person might drop a rock on someone he couldn't see and kill that person. There was no plan to hurt anyone and no hatred for the one who was killed. NIV 23 or, without seeing them, drops on them a stone heavy enough to kill them, and they die, then since that other person was not an enemy and no harm was intended, NCV 24 If that happens, the community must judge between the relative of the dead person and the killer, according to these rules. NIV 24 the assembly must judge between the accused and the avenger of blood according to these regulations. NCV 25 They must protect the killer from the dead person's relative, sending the killer back to the original city of safety, to stay there until the high priest dies (the high priest had the holy oil poured on him). NIV 25 The assembly must protect the one accused of murder from the avenger of blood and send the accused back to the city of refuge to which they fled. The accused must stay there until the death of the high priest, who was anointed with the holy oil. NCV 26 "'Such a person must never go outside the limits of the city of safety. NIV 26 “ ‘But if the accused ever goes outside the limits of the city of refuge to which they fled NCV 27 If a relative of the dead person finds the killer outside the city, the relative may kill that person and not be guilty of murder. NIV 27 and the avenger of blood finds them outside the city, the avenger of blood may kill the accused without being guilty of murder. NCV 28 The killer must stay in the city of safety until the high priest dies. After the high priest dies, the killer may go home.

NCV 33 "'Don't let murder spoil your land. The only way to remove the sin of killing an innocent person is for the murderer to be put to death. NIV 33 “ ‘Do not pollute the land where you are. Bloodshed pollutes the land, and atonement cannot be made for the land on which blood has been shed, except by the blood of the one who shed it. NCV 34 I am the Lord, and I live among the Israelites. I live in that land with you, so do not spoil it with murder.'" NIV 34 Do not defile the land where you live and where I dwell, for I, the LORD, dwell among the Israelites.’ ”
