Joshua 20
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And LORD JEHOVAH said to Yeshua 2Say to the children of Israel: “Leave for yourselves cities for salvation, according to what I said to you by the hand of my Servant Moshe 3That a killer may escape there, whoever may kill a life suddenly when he does not know, and they shall be to you for salvation from the seeker of vengeance of blood 4And he will flee into one of these cities and he shall stand at the entrance of the gate of the city and he shall speak before the Elders of that city, and he shall speak his words to them in the city and they will give to him a place to dwell with them 5And they shall take him in when the seeker of vengeance of blood will chase after him and they shall not deliver the slayer into his hands, because unknowingly he struck his neighbor and was not hating him from former days 6And he shall dwell in that city until he stands before the assembly in judgment, until the Great Priest will die who will preside in those days, and then the manslayer shall return and he shall come to his house and to his town and to the city from which he fled

7Then they set apart these cities for a place of refuge: Raqem which is in Galilee, which is on the Hill of Naphtali and Shekeem, that is on the Hill of Aphreim and Quryath Arba, which is Khebrun which is on the Hill of Yehuda 8And at the crossing of Jordan of Yerikho from the East they gave Butsar in the wilderness that sits in the plain from the tribe of Rubil, and Ramath Gelad from the tribe of Gad, and Gulan that is in Mathnin, of the tribe of Menasheh 9These are the cities of salvation and of the place of refuge for all the children of Israel and for the settlers who dwell among them that will be escaping there, everyone who kills a life suddenly, that he would not be delivered into the hand of him who seeks vengeance of blood, until he shall stand before the assembly in judgment
