which he inherits.
Reader 6 (Thursday Evening Portion)
Num 35:9 And YHWH spoke unto Moshe, saying,
Num 35:10 Speak unto the children of Yisra’el, and say unto them, When you be come over
Yarden into the land of Kena’an;
Num 35:11 Then you shall appoint you cities to be cities of refuge for you; that the slayer may
flee there, which kills any person by accident.
Num 35:12 And they shall be unto you cities for refuge from the avenger; that the manslayer die
not, until he stand before the congregation in judgment.
Num 35:13 And of these cities which you shall give six cities shall you have for refuge.
Num 35:14 You shall give three cities on this side Yarden, and three cities shall you give in the
land of Kena’an, which shall be cities of refuge.
Num 35:15 These six cities shall be a refuge, both for the children of Yisra’el, and for the
stranger, and for the sojourner among them: that every one that kills any person by accident
may flee there.
Num 35:16 And if he smite him with an instrument of iron, so that he die, he is a murderer: the
murderer shall surely be put to death.
Num 35:17 And if he smite him with throwing a stone, wherewith he may die, and he die, he is a
murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death.
Num 35:18 Or if he smite him with an hand weapon of wood, wherewith he may die, and he die,
he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death.
Num 35:19 The revenger of blood himself shall slay the murderer: when he meets him, he shall
slay him.
Num 35:20 But if he thrust him of hatred, or hurl at him by laying of wait, that he die;
Num 35:21 Or in enmity smite him with his hand, that he die: he that smote him shall surely be
put to death; for he is a murderer: the revenger of blood shall slay the murderer, when he
meets him.
Num 35:22 But if he thrust him suddenly without enmity, or have cast upon him any thing
without laying of wait,
Num 35:23 Or with any stone, wherewith a man may die, seeing him not, and cast it upon him,
that he die, and was not his enemy, neither sought his harm:
Num 35:24 Then the congregation shall judge between the slayer and the revenger of blood
according to these judgments:
Num 35:25 And the congregation shall deliver the slayer out of the hand of the revenger of
blood, and the congregation shall restore him to the city of his refuge, where he was fled:
and he shall abide in it unto the death of the high priest, which was anointed with the holy
oil.
Num 35:26 But if the slayer shall at any time come outside the border of the city of his refuge,
where he was fled;
Num 35:27 And the revenger of blood find him outside the borders of the city of his refuge, and
the revenger of blood kill the slayer; he shall not be guilty of blood:
Num 35:28 Because he should have remained in the city of his refuge until the death of the high
priest: but after the death of the high priest the slayer shall return into the land of his
possession.
Num 35:29 So these things shall be for a statute of judgment unto you throughout your
generations in all your dwellings.
Num 35:30 Whosoever kills any person, the murderer shall be put to death by the mouth of
witnesses: but one witness shall not testify against any person to cause him to die.
Num 35:31 Moreover you shall take no ransom for the life of a murderer, which is guilty of
death: but he shall be surely put to death.
Num 35:32 And you shall take no ransom for him that is fled to the city of his refuge, that he
should come again to dwell in the land, until the death of the priest.
Num 35:33 So you shall not pollute the land wherein you are: for blood it defiles the land: and
the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that
shed it.
Num 35:34 Defile not therefore the land which you shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I YHWH
dwell among the children of Yisra’el.
Reader 7 (6th Day Friday Morning Double Portion)
Num 36:1 And the chief fathers of the families of the children of Gil’ad, the son of Machir, the
son of Manasheh, of the families of the sons of Yosef, came near, and spoke before Moshe,
and before the princes, the chief fathers of the children of Yisra’el:
Num 36:2 And they said, YHWH commanded my adon to give the land for an inheritance by lot
to the children of Yisra’el: and my lord was commanded by YHWH to give the inheritance of
Tzelohchad our brother unto his daughters.
Num 36:3 And if they be married to any of the sons of the other tribes of the children of
Yisra’el, then shall their inheritance be taken from the inheritance of our fathers, and shall
be put to the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they are received: so shall it be taken from
the lot of our inheritance.
Num 36:4 And when the Yo’vale of the children of Yisra’el shall be, then shall their inheritance
be put unto the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they are received: so shall their
inheritance be taken away from the inheritance of the tribe of our fathers.
Num 36:5 And Moshe commanded the children of Yisra’el according to the word of YHWH,
saying, The tribe of the sons of Yosef has said well.
Num 36:6 This is the thing which YHWH does command concerning the daughters of
Tzelohchad, saying, Let them marry to whom they think best; only to the family of the tribe
of their father shall they marry.
Num 36:7 So shall not the inheritance of the children of Yisra’el remove from tribe to tribe: for
every one of the children of Yisra’el shall keep himself to the inheritance of the tribe of his
fathers.
Num 36:8 And every daughter, that possesses an inheritance in any tribe of the children of
Yisra’el, shall be wife unto one of the family of the tribe of her father, that the children of
Yisra’el may enjoy every man the inheritance of his fathers.
Num 36:9 Neither shall the inheritance remove from one tribe to another tribe; but every one
of the tribes of the children of Yisra’el shall keep himself to his own inheritance.
Num 36:10 Even as YHWH commanded Moshe, so did the daughters of Tzelochhad:
Num 36:11 For Machlah, Tirtzah, and Choglah, and Milcah, and Noah, the daughters of
Tzelohchad, were married unto their father’s brothers’ sons:
Num 36:12 And they were married into the families of the sons of Manasheh the son of Yosef,
and their inheritance remained in the tribe of the family of their father.
Num 36:13 These are the commandments and the judgments, which YHWH commanded by
the hand of Moshe unto the children of Yisra’el in the plains of Moav by Yarden near
Yericho.

dwelt?

I plead.

marked before me, saith Adonai YHWH.

occasion who can turn her away? all they that seek her will not weary themselves; in her
month they shall find her.

There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers, and after them will I go.

their kings, their princes, and their priests, and their prophets,
