Property Rights

1 "aIf a man steals an ox or a sheep and slaughters it or sells it, he shall pay five oxen for the ox and 1four sheep for the sheep. 2 "bIf the 2thief is ccaught while breaking in and is struck so that he dies, there will be no bloodguiltiness on his account. 3 "But if the sun has risen on him, there will be bloodguiltiness on his account. He shall surely make restitution; if he owns nothing, then he shall be 3sold for his theft. 4 "If what he stole is actually found alive in his dpossession, whether an ox or a donkey or a sheep, 4he shall pay double. 5 "If a man lets a field or vineyard be grazed bare and lets his animal loose so that it grazes in another man's field, he shall make restitution from the best of his own field and the best of his own vineyard. 6 "If a fire breaks out and spreads to thorn bushes, so that stacked grain or the standing grain or the field itself is consumed, he who started the fire shall surely make restitution.
