 19:20
19:19 I have found favor in your eyes, and you have been very kind in saving my life! But I cannot reach the hills to escape. The evil will overtake me and I will die!
Hineh-na matsa avdechah chen-be'eyneycha vatagdel chasdecha asher asita imadi lehachayot et-nafshi ve'anochi lo uchal lehimalet haharah pen-tidbakani hara'ah vamati.
19:20 Please, there is a city here close enough for refuge. It is insignificant! I will flee there - isn't it insignificant? - and I will survive.'
Hineh-na ha'ir hazot kerovah lanus shamah vehi mits'ar imaletah na shamah halo mits'ar hi utechi nafshi.



Commentary:

insignificant
