Joshua 20 Text (WEB)
  1. Yahweh spoke to Joshua, saying,
  2. "Speak to the children of Israel, saying, 'Assign the cities of refuge, of which I spoke to you by Moses,
  3. that the manslayer who kills any person accidentally or unintentionally may flee there. They shall be to you for a refuge from the avenger of blood.
  4. He shall flee to one of those cities, and shall stand at the entrance of the gate of the city, and declare his cause in the ears of the elders of that city. They shall take him into the city with them, and give him a place, that he may live among them.
  5. If the avenger of blood pursue after him, then they shall not deliver up the manslayer into his hand; because he struck his neighbor unintentionally, and didn't hate him before.
  6. He shall dwell in that city until he stands before the congregation for judgment, until the death of the high priest that shall be in those days. Then the manslayer shall return, and come to his own city, and to his own house, to the city he fled from.'"
  7. They set apart Kedesh in Galilee in the hill country of Naphtali, Shechem in the hill country of Ephraim, and Kiriath Arba (the same is Hebron) in the hill country of Judah.
  8. Beyond the Jordan at Jericho eastward, they assigned Bezer in the wilderness in the plain out of the tribe of Reuben, Ramoth in Gilead out of the tribe of Gad, and Golan in Bashan out of the tribe of Manasseh.
  9. These were the appointed cities for all the children of Israel, and for the alien who lives among them, that whoever kills any person unintentionally might flee there, and not die by the hand of the avenger of blood, until he stands before the congregation.
Joshua 20 Text (Hebrew)
  1. וידבר יהוה אל־יהושע לאמר׃
  2. דבר אל־בני ישראל לאמר תנו לכם את־ערי המקלט אשר־דברתי אליכם ביד־משה׃
  3. לנוס שמה רוצח מכה־נפש בשגגה בבלי־דעת והיו לכם למקלט מגאל הדם׃
  4. ונס אל־אחת מהערים האלה ועמד פתח שער העיר ודבר באזני זקני העיר־ההיא את־דבריו ואספו אתו העירה אליהם ונתנו־לו מקום וישב עםם׃
  5. וכי ירדף גאל הדם אחריו ולא־יסגרו את־הרצח בידו כי בבלי־דעת הכה את־רעהו ולא־שנא הוא לו מתמול שלשום׃
  6. וישב בעיר ההיא עד־עמדו לפני העדה למשפט עד־מות הכהן הגדול אשר יהיה בימים ההם אז ישוב הרוצח ובא אל־עירו ואל־ביתו אל־העיר אשר־נס משם׃
  7. ויקדשו את־קדש בגליל בהר נפתלי ואת־שכם בהר אפרים ואת־קרית ארבע היא חברון בהר יהודה׃
  8. ומעבר לירדן יריחו מזרחה נתנו את־בצר במדבר במישר ממטה ראובן ואת־ראמת בגלעד ממטה־גד ואת־ בבשן ממטה מנשה׃
  9. אלה היו ערי המועדה לכל בני ישראל ולגר הגר בתוכם לנוס שמה כל־מכה־נפש בשגגה ולא ימות ביד גאל הדם עד־עמדו לפני העדה׃ ף

  7. και διεστειλεν την καδης εν τη γαλιλαια εν τω ορει τω νεφθαλι και συχεμ εν τω ορει τω εφραιμ και την πολιν αρβοκ αυτη εστιν χεβρων εν τω ορει τω
  8. και εν τω περαν του ιορδανου εδωκεν βοσορ εν τη ερημω εν τω πεδιω απο της φυλης ρουβην και αρημωθ εν τη γαλααδ εκ της φυλης γαδ και την γαυλων εν τη βασανιτιδι εκ της φυλης
  9. αυται αι πολεις αι επικλητοι τοις υιοις ισραηλ και τω προσηλυτω τω προσκειμενω εν αυτοις καταφυγειν εκει παντι παιοντι ψυχην ακουσιως ινα μη αποθανη εν χειρι του αγχιστευοντος το αιμα εως αν καταστη εναντι της συναγωγης εις
Joshua 20 Text (Latin)
  1. Et locutus est Dominus ad Josue, dicens : Loquere filiis Israël, et dic eis :
  2. Separate urbes fugitivorum, de quibus locutus sum ad vos per manum Moysi :
  3. ut confugiat ad eas quicumque animam percusserit nescius, et possit evadere iram proximi, qui ultor est sanguinis :
  4. cum ad unam harum confugerit civitatum, stabit ante portam civitatis, et loquetur senioribus urbis illius ea quæ se comprobent innocentem : sicque suscipient eum, et dabunt ei locum ad habitandum.
  5. Cumque ultor sanguinis eum fuerit persecutus, non tradent in manus ejus : quia ignorans percussit proximum ejus, nec ante biduum triduumve ejus probatur inimicus.
  6. Et habitabit in civitate illa, donec stet ante judicium causam reddens facti sui, et moriatur sacerdos magnus, qui fuerit in illo tempore : tunc revertetur homicida, et ingredietur civitatem et domum suam de qua fugerat.
  7. Decreveruntque Cedes in Galilæa montis Nephthali, et Sichem in monte Ephraim, et Cariatharbe, ipsa est Hebron in monte Juda.
  8. Et trans Jordanem contra orientalem plagam Jericho, statuerunt Bosor, quæ sita est in campestri solitudine de tribu Ruben, et Ramoth in Galaad de tribu Gad, et Gaulon in Basan de tribu Manasse.
  9. Hæ civitates constitutæ sunt cunctis filiis Israël, et advenis qui habitabant inter eos, ut fugeret ad eas qui animam nescius percussisset, et non moreretur in manu proximi, effusum sanguinem vindicare cupientis, donec staret ante populum expositurus causam suam.
Joshua 20 Text (KJV)
  1. The LORD also spake unto Joshua, saying,
  2. Speak to the children of Israel, saying, Appoint out for you cities of refuge, whereof I spake unto you by the hand of Moses:
  3. That the slayer that killeth any person unawares and unwittingly may flee thither: and they shall be your refuge from the avenger of blood.
  4. And when he that doth flee unto one of those cities shall stand at the entering of the gate of the city, and shall declare his cause in the ears of the elders of that city, they shall take him into the city unto them, and give him a place, that he may dwell among them.
  5. And if the avenger of blood pursue after him, then they shall not deliver the slayer up into his hand; because he smote his neighbour unwittingly, and hated him not beforetime.
  6. And he shall dwell in that city, until he stand before the congregation for judgment, and until the death of the high priest that shall be in those days: then shall the slayer return, and come unto his own city, and unto his own house, unto the city from whence he fled.
  7. And they appointed Kedesh in Galilee in mount Naphtali, and Shechem in mount Ephraim, and Kirjath-arba, which is Hebron, in the mountain of Judah.
  8. And on the other side Jordan by Jericho eastward, they assigned Bezer in the wilderness upon the plain out of the tribe of Reuben, and Ramoth in Gilead out of the tribe of Gad, and Golan in Bashan out of the tribe of Manasseh.
  9. These were the cities appointed for all the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them, that whosoever killeth any person at unawares might flee thither, and not die by the hand of the avenger of blood, until he stood before the congregation.
