Joshua 20

20:1 The LORD also spoke to Joshua, saying,
20:2 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, Appoint for you
 cities of refuge, of which I spoke to you by the hand of Moses:
20:3 That the slayer that killeth [any] person unawares [and]
 ignorantly, may flee thither: and they shall be your refuge
 from the avenger of blood.
20:4 And when he that doth flee to one of those cities shall
 stand at the entering of the gate of the city, and shall
 declare his cause in the ears of the elders of that city, they
 shall take him into the city to them, and give him a place,
 that he may dwell among them.
20:5 And if the avenger of blood shall pursue him, then they
 shall not deliver the slayer into his hand; because he smote
 his neighbor ignorantly, and had not hated him before.
20:6 And he shall dwell in that city, until he shall stand
 before the congregation for judgment, [and] until the death of
 the high-priest that shall be in those days: then shall the
 slayer return, and come to his own city, and to his own house,
 to the city from whence he fled.
20:7 And they appointed Kedesh in Galilee in mount Naphtali, and
 Shechem in mount Ephraim, and Kirjath-arba, (which [is] Hebron)
 in the mountain of Judah.
20:8 And on the other side of Jordan by Jericho eastward, they
 assigned Bezer in the wilderness upon the plain out of the
 tribe of Reuben, and Ramoth in Gilead out of the tribe of Gad,
 and Golan in Bashan out of the tribe of Manasseh.
20:9 These were the cities appointed for all the children of
 Israel, and for the stranger sojourning among them, that
 whoever should kill [any] person unawares might flee thither,
 and not die by the hand of the avenger of blood, until he stood
 before the congregation.
