18 "If men have a quarrel and one strikes the other with a stone or with his fist, and he does not die but remains in bed,
19 if he gets up and walks around outside on his staff, then he who struck him shall go unpunished; he shall only pay for his loss of time, and shall take care of him until he is completely healed.
20 "If a man strikes his male or female slave * with a rod and he dies at his hand, he shall be punished.
21 "If, however, he survives a day or two, no vengeance shall be taken; 1for he is his property.
22 "If men struggle with each other and strike a woman with child so that she gives birth prematurely, yet there is no injury, he shall surely be fined as the woman's husband may demand of him, and he shall 2pay as the judges decide.
23 "But if there is any further injury, 3then you shall appoint as a penalty life for life,
24 4eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
25 burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise.
26 "If a man strikes the eye of his male or female slave *, and destroys it, he shall let him go free on account of his eye.
27 "And if he knocks out a tooth of his male or female slave *, he shall let him go free on account of his tooth.
28 "If an ox gores a man or a woman to death, 5the ox shall surely be stoned and its flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall go unpunished.
29 "If, however, an ox was previously in the habit of goring and its owner has been warned, yet he does not confine it and it kills a man or a woman, the ox shall be stoned and its owner also shall be put to death.
30 "If a ransom is demanded of him, then he shall give for the redemption of his life whatever * is demanded of him.
31 "Whether it gores a son or a daughter, it shall be done to him according to the same rule.
32 "If the ox gores a male or female slave *, the owner shall give his or her master 6thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned.
