When two people are fighting and one hits the other with a stone or with his fist so that he is in bed for a while but doesn't die—
if he recovers and is able to walk around outside with a cane, then the one who hit him shouldn't be punished, except to pay for the loss of time from work and to pay for his full recovery.
When a slave owner hits a male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies immediately, the owner should be punished.
But if the slave gets up after a day or two, the slave owner shouldn't be punished because the slave is the owner's property.
When people who are fighting injure a pregnant woman so that she has a miscarriage but no other injury occurs, then the guilty party will be fined what the woman's husband demands, as negotiated with the judges.
If there is further injury, then you will give a life for a life,
an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a hand for a hand, a foot for a foot,
a burn for a burn, a bruise for a bruise, a wound for a wound.
When a slave owner hits and blinds the eye of a male or female slave, he should let the slave go free on account of the eye.
If he knocks out a tooth of a male or female slave, he should let the slave go free on account of the tooth.
When an ox gores a man or a woman to death, the ox should be stoned to death, and the meat of the ox shouldn't be eaten. But the owner of the ox shouldn't be punished.
However, if the ox had gored people in the past and its owner had been warned but didn't watch out for it, and the ox ends up killing a man or a woman, then the ox should be stoned to death, and its owner should also be put to death.
If the owner has to pay compensation instead, he must pay the agreed amount to save his life.
If the ox gores a boy or a girl, this same case law applies to the owner.
If the ox gores a male or female slave, the owner will pay thirty silver shekels to the slave's owner, and the ox will be stoned to death.
