CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
35:24 Then - If the man - slayer flee to to the city of refuge.
or accidentally drops a huge stone on someone, though they were not enemies, and the person dies.
The community must protect the slayer from the avenger and must escort the slayer back to live in the city of refuge to which he fled. There he must remain until the death of the high priest, who was anointed with the sacred oil.
But the slayer must stay in that city and be tried by the local assembly, which will render a judgment. And he must continue to live in that city until the death of the high priest who was in office at the time of the accident. After that, he is free to return to his own home in the town from which he fled."
