    20:6 Stand - Which was the posture of the accused and accusers. The congregation - The council appointed to judge of these matters, not the council of the city of refuge, for they had examined him before, ver.4, but of the city to which he belonged, or in or nigh which the fact was committed, as appears from Numb 35:25.
