19:5 as when a man goes into the forest with his neighbor to hew wood, and his hand fetches a stroke with the ax to cut down the tree, and the head slips from the handle, and lights on his neighbor, so that he dies; he shall flee to one of these cities and live:
19:6 lest the avenger of blood pursue the manslayer, while his heart is hot, and overtake him, because the way is long, and strike him mortally; whereas he was not worthy of death, inasmuch as he didn`t hate him in time past.
19:7 Therefore I command you, saying, You shall set apart three cities for you.
19:9 if you shall keep all this commandment to do it, which I command you this day, to love Yahweh your God, and to walk ever in his ways; then shall you add three cities more for you, besides these three:
19:11 But if any man hate his neighbor, and lie in wait for him, and rise up against him, and strike him mortally so that he dies, and he flee into one of these cities;
19:12 then the elders of his city shall send and bring him there, and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood, that he may die.
19:13 Your eye shall not pity him, but you shall put away the innocent blood from Israel, that it may go well with you.
19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sins: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall a matter be established.
19:16 If an unrighteous witness rise up against any man to testify against him of wrong-doing,
19:18 and the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness is a false witness, and has testified falsely against his brother;
19:19 then shall you do to him, as he had thought to do to his brother: so shall you put away the evil from the midst of you.
19:20 Those who remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil in the midst of you.
