Banishment or exile can be a form of punishment. It means to be away from one's home (i.e. city, state or country) while either being explicitly refused permission to return and/or being threatened by prison or death upon return. As it is a common theme within the Bible with one of its earliest references, Adam & Eve, continuing with a form of banishment that includes Jesus. Below is a partial list of these exiles as referenced in the Bible.
