And what does the Torah mean when it continues "ve'Lo Sikchu Kofer la'Nus el lr Miklato"?

Rashi, Ramban, Targum Onkelos and Targum Yonasan: 'Do not accept ransom money for the life of a Rotze'ach be'Shogeg who has fled 1 to his Ir Miklat - in order to allow him to return home before the Kohen Gadol dies. 2

Rashi: "La'nus" is equivalent to "le'Nas" - like "Shuvei Milchamam" (in Michah, 2:8) which means 'who returned from the battle-field' and "ki Mulim hayu" (in Yehoshua, 5:5, which means 'who were circumcised'.

Rashi: It cannot mean literally 'Do not accept ransom money from a Rotze'ach who is obligated to flee', ...', because then the continuation of the Pasuk "Lashuv Lasheves ba'Aretz ... " would make no sense - though the Ramban does offer an explanation - See Ramban, end of Dibur.
