HaShem spoke to Moshe, “Speak to Bnei Yisrael and say to them, ‘Set aside six cities of refuge for those people who unintentionally kill another person. No doubt the relative of the dead person will seek revenge, so let these six cities be ‘safe zones’ where these killers will be protected.’”
Three of the cities were to be on the eastern side of the Jordan River, where the tribes of Reuven, Gad and half of Menashe lived. The other three were to be in the Land of Canaan.
