If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die , there shall no blood be shed for him.
If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed for him; for he should make fullrestitution ; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.4
If the theft be certainlyfound in his handalive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall restoredouble.5
If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten , and shall put in his beast, and shall feed in another man'sfield; of the best of his own field, and of the best of his own vineyard, shall he make restitution .

If a man shall deliver unto his neighbourmoney or stuff to keep , and it be stolen out of the man'shouse; if the thief be found , let him paydouble.8
If the thief be notfound , then the master of the house shall be brought unto the judges, to see whether he have put his hand unto his neighbour'sgoods.9
For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, which another challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn , he shall paydouble unto his neighbour.10
If a mandeliver unto his neighbour an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or any beast, to keep ; and it die , or be hurt , or driven away , no man seeing it:
Then shall an oath of the LORD be between them both, that he hath not put his hand unto his neighbour'sgoods; and the owner of it shall accept thereof, and he shall not make it good .
