"If a bull gores a man or a woman to death, the bull must be stoned to death,1 and its meat must not be eaten. But the owner of the bull will not be held responsible.
If, however, the bull has had the habit of goring and the owner has been warned but has not kept it penned up2 and it kills a man or woman, the bull must be stoned and the owner also must be put to death.
However, if payment is demanded of him, he may redeem his life by paying whatever is demanded.331
This law also applies if the bull gores a son or daughter.
If the bull gores a male or female slave, the owner must pay thirty shekelsa4 of silver to the master of the slave, and the bull must be stoned.
"If a man uncovers a pit5 or digs one and fails to cover it and an ox or a donkey falls into it,
the owner of the pit must pay for the loss; he must pay its owner, and the dead animal will be his.
"If a man's bull injures the bull of another and it dies, they are to sell the live one and divide both the money and the dead animal equally.
However, if it was known that the bull had the habit of goring, yet the owner did not keep it penned up,6 the owner must pay, animal for animal, and the dead animal will be his.
