The Number 3 multiplied 3x2 (Cities of Refuge Example)

When God brought Israel into the Promised Land He established “Cities of Refuge”. God established 6 cities and sequenced them as 3+3. For example, in Numbers 35:13-15 the Bible states:

13 And of these cities which ye shall give six cities shall ye have for refuge.
14 Ye shall give three cities on this side Jordan, and three cities shall ye give in the land of Canaan, which shall be cities of refuge.
15 These six cities shall be a refuge, both for the children of Israel, and for the stranger, and for the sojourner among them: that every one that killeth any person unawares may flee thither."

God numbered the special cities that He commanded in the land of Israel. There were 3 cites west of the Jordan River and 3 cities east of the Jordan River. In the book “How Yahweh Numbered Creation” I also illustrate how God sequenced the six days of Creation as 3+3.
