Numbers 35:1-8

CEB 1 The LORD spoke to Moses in the Moab plains by the Jordan across from Jericho: NIV 1 On the plains of Moab by the Jordan across from Jericho, the LORD said to Moses, CEB 2 Command the Israelites that they give cities from their inherited property to the Levites in which to live. You will also give the Levites pastures around their 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. CEB 3 The cities will be theirs in which to live. Their pastures will be for their cattle, their possessions, and all their animals. NIV 3 Then they will have towns to live in and pasturelands for the cattle they own and all their other animals. CEB 4 The pastures of the cities that you must give to the Levites will extend from the wall of the city outward for one thousand five hundred feet in all directions. NIV 4 “The pasturelands around the towns that you give the Levites will extend a thousand cubits from the town wall. CEB 5 You will measure outside the city on the east side three thousand feet, on the south side three thousand feet, on the west side three thousand feet, and on the north side three thousand feet, with the city in the middle. These will be their cities' pastures. 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. CEB 6 Six of the cities that you give to the Levites will be refuge cities. You will allow the person who kills someone to flee there. In addition to these you will give them forty-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. CEB 7 All the cities that you give to the Levites will total forty-eight, along with their pastures. NIV 7 In all you must give the Levites forty-eight towns, together with their pasturelands. CEB 8 As for the cities that you give from the property of the Israelites, you will take more from the larger tribes and less from the smaller. Each in proportion to its inheritance will give cities to the Levites. 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.”
