If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep,a and kill it, or sell it; he shall restorefiveoxen for an ox, and foursheep for a sheep.2
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 fire break out , and catch in thorns, so that the stacks of corn, or the standing corn, or the field, be consumed therewith; he that kindled the fire shall surely make restitution .
