- 1 Then the LORD spoke to Joshua, saying, 2 "Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, `Designate F230 the R367 cities of refuge, of which I spoke to you through F231 Moses, 3 that the manslayer who kills F232 any person unintentionally, without premeditation, may flee there, and they shall become your refuge from the avenger of blood. 4 `He shall flee to one of these cities, and shall stand at the entrance of the gate R368 of the city and state his case in the hearing of the elders of that city; and they shall take F233 him into the city to them and give him a place, so that he may dwell among them. 5 `Now if R369 the avenger of blood pursues him, then they shall not deliver the manslayer into his hand, because he struck his neighbor without premeditation and did not hate him beforehand. 6 `He shall dwell in that city until R370 he stands before the congregation for judgment, until the death of the one who is high priest in those days. Then the manslayer shall return F234 to his own city and to his own house, to the city from which he fled.' "
