Regulations Regarding Theft, Borrowing, and Accidental Damage or Loss

1 a " 'If a man steals an ox or small livestock and slaughters it or sells it, he will make restitution with five cattle in place of the ox and with four sheep or goats in place of the small livestock. 2 " 'If a thief is found in the act of breaking in and he is struck and he dies, there is not bloodguilt for him. 3 (If the sun has risen over him, [there is] bloodguilt for him. He will make full restitution. If {he does not have enough},b he will be sold for his theft. 4 If indeed the stolen item is found {in his possession}c alive, from ox to donkey to small livestock, he will make double restitution. 5 " 'If a man grazes [his livestock] in a field or a vineyard and he releases his livestock and it grazes in the field of another, he will make restitution [from] the best of his field and the best of his vineyard. 6 " 'If a fire is started and finds thorn bushes and a stack of sheaves or the standing grain or the field is consumed, the one who started the fire will surely make restitution.
