View Full Version : Refuge if you accidentally kill someone.

I have read this before; probably in Moses now in Joshua 20:1. About refuge for killing someone accidentally.
The way it is written gives me the impression that accidental death at someone Else's hands happened all the time. What is your take on this command please?

Many thanks.

Well it must have happened enough for it to be a law. How someone could kill someone accidentily back then I am not sure.

There is a great sermon on sermonaudio about this very topic... the accidental death of another. Abner stopped outside the gate and being called aside, was killed.

Check out William McCrea's sermon, "Gates That Will Not Close".
