The Atonement for An Unsolved Murder

1If one be found slain in the land which the LORD your God gives you to possess it, lying in the field, and it be not known who has slain him: 2Then your elders and your judges shall come forth, and they shall measure to the cities which are round about him that is slain: 3And it shall be, that the city which is next to the slain man, even the elders of that city shall take an heifer, which has not been worked with, and which has not drawn in the yoke; 4And the elders of that city shall bring down the heifer to a rough valley, which is neither eared nor sown, and shall strike off the heifer's neck there in the valley: 5And the priests the sons of Levi shall come near; for them the LORD your God has chosen to minister to him, and to bless in the name of the LORD; and by their word shall every controversy and every stroke be tried: 6And all the elders of that city, that are next to the slain man, shall wash their hands over the heifer that is beheaded in the valley: 7And they shall answer and say, Our hands have not shed this blood, neither have our eyes seen it. 8Be merciful, O LORD, to your people Israel, whom you have redeemed, and lay not innocent blood to your people of Israel's charge. And the blood shall be forgiven them. 9So shall you put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you, when you shall do that which is right in the sight of the LORD.
