      1  The cities of refuge.
     4  The privilege thereof for the manslayer.
    14  The land-mark is not to be removed.
    15  Two witnesses at the least are required.
    16  The punishment of a false witness.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - hath cut.
       * De 6:10; 7:1,2; 12:1,29; 17:14
    - succeedest.  Heb. inheritest, or possessest.
       * De 12:29
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - separate three cities.
      Unquestionably in imitation of these cities, the heathen had
      their {asyla,} and the Roman Catholics their privileged
      altars:  and similar traditions seem to obtain in many
      barbarous nations, for "the North American Indian nations have
      most of them either a house or town of refuge, which is a sure
      asylum to protect a manslayer, or the unfortunate captive, if
      he once enter it.  In almost every Indian nation, there are
      several towns, which are called old beloved, ancient, holy, or
      white towns, (white being their fixed emblem of peace,
      friendship, prosperity, happiness, purity, etc.)  They seem to
      have been formerly towns of refuge; for it is not in the
      memory of the oldest people that human blood was shed in
      them."

    VERSE 14 
     - shalt not remove.
      Before the extensive use of fences, landed property was marked
      out by stones or posts, set up so as to ascertain the
      divisions of family estates.  It was easy to remove one of
      these landmarks, and set it in a different place; and thus a
      dishonest man might enlarge his own estate by contracting that
      of his neighbor.  Hence it was a matter of considerable
      importance to prevent this crime among the Israelites; among
      whom, removing them would be equivalent to forging, altering,
      destroying, or concealing the title-deeds of an estate among
      us.  Accordingly, by the Mosaic law, it was not only
      prohibited in the commandment against covetousness, but we
      find a particular curse expressly annexed to it in ch. 17 27:17.
      Josephus considers this law a general prohibition, intended
      not only to protect private property, but also to preserve the
      boundaries of kingdoms and countries inviolable.

       * Ex 23:1-7 1Ki 21:10-13 Ps 27:12; 35:11 Mr 14:55-59 Ac 6:13
