From H2620; a shelter (literally or figuratively): - hope, (place of) refuge, shelter, trust.

In the N.T. -

 Acts 14:6

They became aware of it (sunidontes). Second aorist (ingressive) active participle of sunoraō (suneidon), old word to see together, to become conscious of as already in Act_12:12. In the N.T. only by Luke and Paul. 

Fled (katephugon). Second aorist (effective) active indicative of katapheugō, old verb, but in the N.T. only here and Heb_6:18. Paul and Barnabas had no idea of remaining to be stoned (lynched) by this mob. It is a wise preacher who always knows when to stand his ground and when to leave for the glory of God. Paul and Barnabas were following the directions of the Lord Jesus given to the twelve on their special tour of Galilee (Mat_10:23). Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia (still part of the Province of Galatia, though in another Regio), not far from the base of the Black Mountain. Professor Sterrett has apparently identified Lystra by an inscription about six hours (18 miles) south-southwest from Iconium near the village Khatyn Serai and Derbe probably near the village Losta or Zosta though its location is really not known. Lystra had been made a colony in b.c. 6 and Derbe was the frontier city of the Roman empire in the southeast. These are the only cities mentioned, but they were of importance and show that Paul kept to his plan of going to centres of influence. The new imperial road from Antioch and Iconium reached these cities.

Vines says;

To flee for refuge , lit as seen in above verse.
So in Hebrew, N.T. and Websters it refuge means flee.

Metaphorically- flee refuge;

Heb 6:18  That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:

Two key words are given, these two words are a must to flee to the lord, he alone is our refuge.
Hope and trust, in the Hebrew, as in the Greek, these words are interchangeable with faith, believe, trust, confidence, hope. We can thus say it is all of the above.

Note: the word Refuge lit. means -To Flee. As Webster says, the first edition of Websters.

I have spoken, wrote a million times on the matter of many being to poor to flee large cities. Many I see on posts, and some emails I get, all want to flee but are to poor to flee.

The idea on this word is, it is our lord, his presence, that is our refuge, it can mean a place. It is prudent if you can to get out of any populated area NOW.

If they persecute you in one place, flee to the next.
Come out of her my people, flee Babylon, or you will partake in her Judgments.

Two N.T. Verses on fleeing. Jesus when he knew of the Jews were close to taking him before his time, he fled away. Our lord fled, he would not allow the enemy to kill him before his time. We all have a set time to go to Glory, most do not know when.

It is a matter of Hope, trust, faith, confidence, in our lord, no matter what, when, where, if you are one of his you can flee to him as Corrie Ten Boom in 'the hiding place'.

Reader you have this hiding pace, it may not be a geographic fleeing, but a fleeing to the lord.

Pella, lord knows I wrote on this many times. Before the A.D. 70 when the temple and Jerusalem were burnt and destroyed, before this, the lord gave his remnant ones a place of escape, Pella, it was a prophecy, or an angel, the lord directed them to flee Jerusalem. It is that way today.

The ones who mistakenly think America is N.T. Babylon, such ones I read, they write, 'flee the USA', others say it's NYC, NY so flee NYC.

Look, many have been born for just a time as this, many are in places they do not want to be. I would to God, he had this mission field in a place near a stream and wild herbs etc.
The lord many times does the supernatural in places that are the last place on earth one would think of.
In the free E-Book I posted below this,”The 72 hour Warning', some of this is covered.

It is prudent if you can  to get out of a populated areas , because riots, and great danger. Flee, that is our refuge, to you reader that are in a city that can not flee,  I weep, you will be protected or taken to Glory, its win, win, but I weep. I see such suffering coming.

After the cities are burned, desolate, a year, maybe 2, 3, or more, after that time , only after this time, we will see the underground government come top side and install the new policy's of a Military ruled prison planet in the USA. Many other places as well, but I speak of the USA.

July is a key month to keep your eyes open and bug out bag ready. The RNC and DNC.
I have said the RNC-Trump- Riots, up rising, next DNC, more of the same, this could produce isolated Martial law, the lord said long ago, when the EU falls apart, and it is, the USA will be next. It is on us. More attacks for the gun grab, and in 2016. I will be speechless if I am typing away for on line ministry in 2017, it is a big maybe, but not what I feel, see, or what the word was and is.

What ever amount of time we have, we must use it wisely, we must be wise as serpents, meek as doves.

July , we will see big events. This I know, I do not say a 100% collapse, but big events, like isolated Martial law, the EU falling apart, and global financial slow down, inflation and such.

The word refuge is a must for all of us to get deep in our hearts, all the lord true people, can not, must not, be in fear, nor panic, as this will lead to mistakes. The lord will, or has already told you what to do, so do it. 
Never to late to prep something, hurricanes, EQ's , floods, massive heat, all things to be in prayer for, and God in all of this is our refuge, come to this place, flee to this place of the manifest presence of Christ.

Fear not, stand on the word and do not move from the rock, stand firm and trust in this month and the months to come.
