Deuteronomy 19

19:1 When the LORD thy God hath cut off the nations, whose land
 the LORD thy God giveth thee, and thou succeedest them, and
 dwellest in their cities, and in their houses;
19:2 Thou shalt separate three cities for thee in the midst of
 thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it.
19:3 Thou shalt prepare thee a way, and divide the limits of thy
 land which the LORD thy God giveth thee to inherit, into three
 parts, that every slayer may flee thither.
19:4 And this [is] the case of the slayer, who shall flee
 thither, that he may live: Whoever killeth his neighbor
 ignorantly, whom he hated not in time past;
19:5 As when a man goeth into the wood with his neighbor to hew
 wood, and his hand maketh a stroke with the ax to cut down the
 tree, and the head slippeth from the helve, and falleth upon
 his neighbor, that he dieth: he shall flee to one of these
 cities, and live:
19:6 Lest the avenger of blood shall pursue the slayer, while
 his heart is hot, and overtake him, because the way is long,
 and slay him; whereas he [was] not worthy of death, inasmuch as
 he hated him not in time past.
19:7 Wherefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt separate three
 cities for thee.
19:8 And if the LORD thy God shall enlarge thy limits, as he
 hath sworn to thy fathers, and give thee all the land which he
 promised to give to thy fathers;
19:9 If thou shalt keep all these commandments to do them, which
 I command thee this day, to love the LORD thy God, and to walk
 ever in his ways; then shalt thou add three cities more for
 thee, besides these three:
19:10 That innocent blood may not be shed in thy land, which the
 LORD thy God giveth thee [for] an inheritance, and [so] blood
 be upon thee.
19:11 But if any man shall hate his neighbor, and lie in wait
 for him, and rise up against him, and smite him mortally, that
 he dieth, and he shall flee into one of these cities:
19:12 Then the elders of his city shall send and bring him
 thence, and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood,
 that he may die.
19:13 Thy eye shall not pity him, but thou shall remove [the
 guilt of] innocent blood from Israel, that it may be well with
19:14 Thou shalt not remove thy neighbor's landmark, which they
 of old time have set in thy inheritance, which thou shalt
 inherit in the land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to
 possess it.
19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any
 iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth; at the
 mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses,
 shall the matter be established.
19:16 If a false witness shall rise up against any man to
 testify against him [that which is] wrong;
19:17 Then both the men between whom the controversy [is] shall
 stand before the LORD, before the priests, and the judges, who
 shall be in those days;
19:18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and
 behold, [if] the witness [is] a false witness, [and] hath
 testified falsely against his brother;
19:19 Then shall ye do to him, as he had thought to do to his
 brother: so shalt thou remove the evil from among you.
19:20 And those who remain shall hear, and fear, and shall
 henceforth commit no more any such evil among you.
19:21 And thy eye shall not pity; [but] life [shall go] for
 life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for
