KJV 1 And the LORD spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho, saying, NIV 1 On the plains of Moab by the Jordan across from Jericho, the LORD said to Moses, KJV 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. 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. KJV 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. NIV 3 Then they will have towns to live in and pasturelands for the cattle they own and all their other animals. KJV 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 about. NIV 4 “The pasturelands around the towns that you give the Levites will extend a thousand cubits from the town wall. KJV 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. 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. KJV 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 manslayer, that he may flee thither: and to them ye shall add forty and two cities. 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. KJV 7 So all the cities which ye shall give to the Levites shall be forty and eight cities: them shall ye give with their suburbs. NIV 7 In all you must give the Levites forty-eight towns, together with their pasturelands. KJV 8 And the cities which ye shall give shall be of the possession of the children of Israel: from them that have many ye shall give many; but from them that have few ye shall give few: every one shall give of his cities unto the Levites according to his inheritance which he inheriteth. 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.” KJV 9 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, NIV 9 Then the LORD said to Moses: KJV 10 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come over Jordan into the land of Canaan; NIV 10 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you cross the Jordan into Canaan, KJV 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. NIV 11 select some towns to be your cities of refuge, to which a person who has killed someone accidentally may flee. KJV 12 And they shall be unto you cities for refuge from the avenger; that the manslayer die not, until he stand before the congregation in judgment. 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. KJV 13 And of these cities which ye shall give six cities shall ye have for refuge. NIV 13 These six towns you give will be your cities of refuge. KJV 14 Ye shall give three cities on this side Jordan, and three cities shall ye give in the land of Canaan, which shall be cities of refuge. NIV 14 Give three on this side of the Jordan and three in Canaan as cities of refuge. KJV 15 These six cities shall be a refuge, 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. 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. KJV 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. 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. KJV 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.

KJV 19 The revenger of blood himself shall slay the murderer: when he meeteth him, he shall slay him. 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.

KJV 22 But if he thrust him suddenly without enmity, or have cast upon him any thing without laying of wait, NIV 22 “ ‘But if without enmity someone suddenly pushes another or throws something at them unintentionally KJV 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: 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, KJV 24 Then the congregation shall judge between the slayer and the revenger of blood according to these judgments: NIV 24 the assembly must judge between the accused and the avenger of blood according to these regulations. KJV 25 And the congregation shall deliver the slayer out of the hand of the revenger of blood, and the congregation 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. 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. KJV 26 But if the slayer shall at any time come without the border of the city of his refuge, whither he was fled; NIV 26 “ ‘But if the accused ever goes outside the limits of the city of refuge to which they fled KJV 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: 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. KJV 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. NIV 28 The accused must stay in the city of refuge until the death of the high priest; only after the death of the high priest may they return to their own property.

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. KJV 34 Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel. NIV 34 Do not defile the land where you live and where I dwell, for I, the LORD, dwell among the Israelites.’ ”
