November 15, Numbers 35

God established cities of refuge as a place for someone to go while waiting for a trial. Notice that they are only for a single crime, accidental death or involuntary manslaughter. Think about it, every other crime is premeditated, no-one accidentally steals a cow or commits adultery. And it was a form of imprisonment, unlike a modern prison in this city one was simple restricted from leaving but they still needed to be productive within the community.
