(57) They gave the cities of Judah.--Heb. text, the cities of refuge, Hebron and Libnah, and her pastures. Of the cities mentioned only Hebron was an asylum for the manslayer. The other cities of refuge were Kedesh-Naphtali, Shechem, Bezer, Ramoth-Gilead, and Golan. (See Joshua 20:7-8.). Here our translators have adopted the Hebrew marginal correction of the text. (Comp. Joshua 21:13, which reads. "The manslayer's city of refuge, Hebron.") The same inaccuracy recurs in 1Chronicles 6:67, below.

With her suburbs.--With her pastures. The phrase has been omitted after Jattir (Joshua 21:13).
