 35:13
35:12 These cities shall serve you as a refuge from the avenger, so that a murderer not die until he can stand trial before the courts.
Vehayu lachem he'arim le-miklat miGo'el velo yamut harotse'ach ad-omdo lifney ha'edah lamishpat.
35:13 The towns that you provide for yourselves shall be six cities in all.
Vehe'arim asher titenu shesh-arey miklat tiheyeynah lachem.



Commentary:

until he can stand trial...
  Thus, all murderers were brought to the refuge cities before trial (Makkoth 9a; Yad, Rotze'ach 5:7).
