then ye shall appoint you cities, to be cities of refuge for

you; that the slayer may flee thither, which killeth any

person at unawares. And they shall be unto you cities

dan, and three cities shall ye give in the land of Canaan,

which shall be cities of refuge. These six cities shall be a

refuge, both for the children of Israel, and for the stranger,

and for the sojourner among them: that every one that

killerh any person unawares may fee thither.
