Chapter 35 of the Book Of Numbers
Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse. Todays reading is currently at: Numbers 35:22-34
22 But if by chance medley, and without hatred, 23 And enmity, he do any of these things, 24 And this be proved in the hearing of the people, and the cause be debated between him that struck, and the next of kin: 25 The innocent shall be delivered from the hand of the revenger, and shall be brought back by sentence into the city, to which he had fled, and he shall abide there until the death of the high priest, that is anointed with the holy oil.
25 "Until the death"... This mystically signified that our deliverance was to be effected by the death of Christ, the high priest and the anointed of God.
26 If the murderer be found without the limits of the cities that are appointed for the banished, 27 And be struck by him that is the avenger of blood: he shall not be guilty that killed him. 28 For the fugitive ought to have stayed in the city until the death of the high priest: and after he is dead, then shall the manslayer return to his own country. 29 These things shall be perpetual, and for an ordinance in all your dwellings. 30 The murderer shall be punished by witnesses: none shall be condemned upon the evidence of one man.
31 You shall not take money of him that is guilty of blood, but he shall die forthwith. 32 The banished and fugitives before the death of the high priest may by no means return into their own cities. 33 Defile not the land of your habitation, which is stained with the blood of the innocent: neither can it otherwise be expiated, but by his blood that hath shed the blood of another. 34 And thus shall your possession he cleansed, myself abiding with you. For I am the Lord that dwell among the children of Israel.
