Numbers 35

Chapter 35

35:6  And among the cities which ye shall give unto the Levites there shall be six cities for refuge, which ye shall appoint for the manslayer, that he may flee thither: and to them ye shall add forty and two cities.


The cities of refuge are types of Christ sheltering the sinner from judgment.
