     - at the entering.

     - until.
       * Nu 35:12,24,25 Heb 9:26
    VERSE 7 
     - appointed.  Heb. sanctified.  Kedesh.
      Kedesh, called Cadesa, or Caidesa, by Josephus, was situated
      in Upper Galilee, twenty miles south-east from Tyre, according
      to Eusebius.  The cities of refuge were distributed through
      the land at proper distances from each other, that they might
      be convenient to every part of the land; and it is said they
      were situated on eminences, that they might be easily seen at
      a distance; the roads leading to them being broad, even, and
      always kept in good repair.  Kedesh and Hebron were at the two
      extremities of the land, the former being in Galilee, and the
      latter in Judah, both in mountainous districts, and Shechem
      was in mount Ephraim, nearly in the center.  Bezer was east of
      Jordan, in the eastern part of the plain opposite Jericho;
      Ramoth was about the midst of the country of the two tribes
      and a half, being about the middle of the mountains of Gilead;
      and Golan, the capital of Gaulonitis, was situated in the
      tribe of Manasseh, in the land of Bashan.  As this institution
      is considered as a type of Christ, some expositors observe a
      significancy in the names of these cities with application to
      Him as Our Refuge.  Kedesh signifies holy, and our refuge is
      the holy Jesus.  Shechem, a shoulder, "and the government is
      upon his shoulder."  Hebron, fellowship, and believers are
      called into the fellowship of Christ Jesus our Lord.  Bezer, a
      fortification, for he is a strong hold to all them that trust
      in him.  Ramoth, high, or exalted, for him hath God exalted
      with his own right hand.  Golan, joy, or exultation, for in
      him all the saints are justified, and shall glory.

       * Jos 21:21 Ge 33:18,19 2Ch 10:1
