Provision will be made for those who kill another person unintentionallyThere will be cities of refuge to protect the innocentCapital punishment will be practiced as a means to eliminate evil from the land. WHEN YOU ENTER THAT LAND Crowning a king, shunning cults, protecting the innocent. Deuteronomy 17, 18 & 19
14"When you come to the land the Lord your God is giving you, and dwell in it, and say, 'I will set a king over me like the nations around me,' 15you shall surely set a king over you whom the Lord your God chooses; one from among your brethren; you may not set a foreigner over you. 16He shall not multiply horses for himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt to multiply horses, for the Lord has said, 'You shall not return that way again.' 17Neither shall he multiply wives for himself; nor shall he greatly multiply silver and gold for himself. 18"When he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write a copy of this law in a book. 19He shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the Lord his God and be careful to observe all the words of this law and these statutes, 20that his heart may not be lifted above his brethren, and he may not turn aside from the commandment to the right hand or to the left. 9"When you come into the land, you shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations. 10There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens,or a sorcerer, 11or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 14For these nations which you will dispossess listened to soothsayers and diviners; but as for you, the Lord Your God has not appointed such for you. 2"Separate three cities for yourself in the midst of your land. 3You shall prepare roads, that any manslayer may flee there. 4And this is the case of the manslayer who flees there, that he may live: Whoever kills his neighbor unintentionally-- 5as when a man goes to the woods with his neighbor to cut timber and his hand swings a stroke with the ax to cut down the tree, and the head slips from the handle and strikes the neighbor so that he dies--he shall flee to one of these cities and live; 6 lest the avenger of blood, while his anger is hot, pursue the manslayer and overtake him, because the way is long, and kill him, though he was not deserving of death. 7Therefore I command you, 'You shall separate three cities for yourself.' 11"But if anyone hates his neighbor, and strikes him mortally, and he flees to one of these cities, 12then the elders of his city shall bring him from there, and deliver him to the avenger, that he may die. 13You shall put away the guilt of innocent blood.''
