Joshua Chapter 20
20:1 The LORD also spake unto Joshua, saying,
20:2 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, Appoint out for you cities
of refuge, whereof I spake unto you by the hand of Moses:
20:3 That the slayer that killeth any person unawares and unwittingly
may flee thither: and they shall be your refuge from the avenger of
20:4 And when he that doth flee unto 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 unto
them, and give him a place, that he may dwell among them.
20:5 And if the avenger of blood pursue after him, then they shall not
deliver the slayer up into his hand; because he smote his neighbor
unwittingly, and hated him not beforetime.
20:6 And he shall dwell in that city, until he 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 unto his
own city, and unto his own house, unto the city from whence he fled.
20:7 And they appointed Kedesh in Galilee in mount Naphtali, and Shechem
in mount Ephraim, and Kirjatharba, which is Hebron, in the mountain of
20:8 And on the other side 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 that sojourneth among them, that whosoever killeth any
person at unawares might flee thither, and not die by the hand of the
avenger of blood, until he stood before the congregation.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
