Exodus 22:10-20 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
10 "If a man gives a donkey, an ox, a sheep or any other animal to his neighbor for safekeeping1 and it dies or is injured or is taken away while no one is looking, 11 the issue between them will be settled by the taking of an oath2 before the LORD that the neighbor did not lay hands on the other person's property. The owner is to accept this, and no restitution is required. 12 But if the animal was stolen from the neighbor, he must make restitution3 to the owner. 13 If it was torn to pieces by a wild animal, he shall bring in the remains as evidence and he will not be required to pay for the torn animal.4 14 "If a man borrows an animal from his neighbor and it is injured or dies while the owner is not present, he must make restitution.5 15 But if the owner is with the animal, the borrower will not have to pay. If the animal was hired, the money paid for the hire covers the loss.6
