Deuteronomy 19* The cities of refuge, The man-slayer, The murderer. (1-13)Landmarks not to be removed. (14) The punishment of falsewitnesses. (15-21)1-13 Here is the law settled between the blood of the murdered,and the blood of the murderer; provision is made, that thecities of refuge should be a protection, so that a man shouldnot die for that as a crime, which was not his willing act. InChrist, the Lord our Righteousness, refuge is provided for thosewho by faith flee unto him. But there is no refuge in JesusChrist for presumptuous sinners, who go on still in theirtrespasses. Those who flee to Christ from their sins, shall besafe in him, but not those who expect to be sheltered by him intheir sins. 14 Direction is given to fix landmarks in Canaan. It is thewill of God that every one should know his own; and that meansshould be used to hinder the doing and suffering of wrong. This,without doubt, is a moral precept, and still binding. Let everyman be content with his own lot, and be just to his neighboursin all things. 15-21 Sentence should never be passed upon the testimony of onewitness alone. A false witness should suffer the same punishmentwhich he sought to have inflicted upon the person he accused.Nor could any law be more just. Let all Christians not only becautious in bearing witness in public, but be careful not tojoin in private slanders; and let all whose consciences accusethem of crime, without delay flee for refuge to the hope setbefore them in Jesus Christ.
