Exodus 22:1-6 (Complete Jewish Bible)

View In My Bible
1 "If someone steals an ox or a sheep and slaughters or sells it, he is to pay five oxen for an ox and four sheep for a sheep. 2 "If a thief caught in the act of breaking in is beaten to death, it is not murder; 3 unless it happens after sunrise, in which case it is murder. A thief must make restitution; so if he has nothing, he himself is to be sold to make good the loss from the theft. 4 If what he stole is found alive in his possession, he is to pay double, no matter whether it is an ox, a donkey or a sheep. 5 "If a person causes a field or vineyard to be grazed over or lets his animal loose to graze in someone else's field, he is to make restitution from the best produce of his own field and vineyard. 6 "If a fire is started and spreads to thorns, so that stacked grain, standing grain or a field is destroyed, the person who lit it must make restitution.
