"When men quarrel and one strikes the other with a stone or with his fist and the man does not die but keeps his bed,
then if the man rises again and walks abroad with his staff, he that struck him shall be clear; only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall have him thoroughly healed.
"When a man strikes his slave, male or female, with a rod and the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished.
But if the slave survives a day or two, he is not to be punished; for the slave is his money.
"When men strive together, and hurt a woman with child, so that there is a miscarriage, and yet no harm follows, the one who hurt her shall be fined, according as the woman's husband shall lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.
If any harm follows, then you shall give life for life,
eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
"When a man strikes the eye of his slave, male or female, and destroys it, he shall let the slave go free for the eye's sake.
If he knocks out the tooth of his slave, male or female, he shall let the slave go free for the tooth's sake.
"When an ox gores a man or a woman to death, the ox shall be stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be clear.
But if the ox has been accustomed to gore in the past, and its owner has been warned but has not kept it in, and it kills a man or a woman, the ox shall be stoned, and its owner also shall be put to death.
If a ransom is laid on him, then he shall give for the redemption of his life whatever is laid upon him.
If it gores a man's son or daughter, he shall be dealt with according to this same rule.
If the ox gores a slave, male or female, the owner shall give to their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned.
