20:2 Speak [H1696] to the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] , saying [H559] , Appoint out [H5414] for you cities [H5892] of refuge [H4733] , whereof I spake [H1696] unto you by the hand [H3027] of Moses [H4872] :
20:3 That the slayer [H7523] that killeth [H5221] [any] person [H5315] unawares [H7684] [and] unwittingly [H1847] may flee [H5127] thither: and they shall be your refuge [H4733] from the avenger [H1350] of blood [H1818] .
