Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
10 "If a man delivers to his neighbor an ass or an ox or a sheep or any beast to keep, and it dies or is hurt or is driven away, without any one seeing it, 10 "If a man gives a donkey, an ox, a sheep or any other animal to his neighbor for safekeeping and it dies or is injured or is taken away while no one is looking,
11 an oath by the LORD shall be between them both to see whether he has not put his hand to his neighbor's property; and the owner shall accept the oath, and he shall not make restitution. 11 the issue between them will be settled by the taking of an oath before the LORD that the neighbor did not lay hands on the other person's property. The owner is to accept this, and no restitution is required.
12 But if it is stolen from him, he shall make restitution to its owner. 12 But if the animal was stolen from the neighbor, he must make restitution to the owner.
13 If it is torn by beasts, let him bring it as evidence; he shall not make restitution for what has been torn. 13 If it was torn to pieces by a wild animal, he shall bring in the remains as evidence and he will not be required to pay for the torn animal.
14 "If a man borrows anything of his neighbor, and it is hurt or dies, the owner not being with it, he shall make full restitution. 14 "If a man borrows an animal from his neighbor and it is injured or dies while the owner is not present, he must make restitution.
15 If the owner was with it, he shall not make restitution; if it was hired, it came for its hire. 15 But if the owner is with the animal, the borrower will not have to pay. If the animal was hired, the money paid for the hire covers the loss.
16 "If a man seduces a virgin who is not betrothed, and lies with her, he shall give the marriage present for her, and make her his wife. 16 "If a man seduces a virgin who is not pledged to be married and sleeps with her, he must pay the bride-price, and she shall be his wife.
17 If her father utterly refuses to give her to him, he shall pay money equivalent to the marriage present for virgins. 17 If her father absolutely refuses to give her to him, he must still pay the bride-price for virgins.
18 "You shall not permit a sorceress to live. 18 "Do not allow a sorceress to live.
19 "Whoever lies with a beast shall be put to death. 19 "Anyone who has sexual relations with an animal must be put to death.
20 "Whoever sacrifices to any god, save to the LORD only, shall be utterly destroyed. 20 "Whoever sacrifices to any god other than the LORD must be destroyed.
