Protection of Property

1 "If a man steals an ox or a sheep and slaughters it or sells it, he must pay back1 five head of cattle for the ox and four sheep for the sheep. 2 "If a thief is caught breaking in2 and is struck so that he dies, the defender is not guilty of bloodshed;3 3 but if it happensa after sunrise, he is guilty of bloodshed. "A thief must certainly make restitution,4 but if he has nothing, he must be sold5 to pay for his theft. 4 "If the stolen animal is found alive in his possession6--whether ox or donkey or sheep--he must pay back double.7
