Exodus 21

CEB 1 These are the case laws that you should set before them: NIV 1 "These are the laws you are to set before them: CEB 2 When you buy a male Hebrew slave, he will serve you for six years. But in the seventh year, he will go free without any payment. NIV 2 "If you buy a Hebrew servant, he is to serve you for six years. But in the seventh year, he shall go free, without paying anything. CEB 3 If he came in single, he will leave single. If he came in married, then his wife will leave with him. NIV 3 If he comes alone, he is to go free alone; but if he has a wife when he comes, she is to go with him. CEB 4 If his master gave him a wife and she bore him sons or daughters, the wife and her children will belong to her master. He will leave single. NIV 4 If his master gives him a wife and she bears him sons or daughters, the woman and her children shall belong to her master, and only the man shall go free. CEB 5 However, if the slave clearly states, "I love my master, my wife, and my children, and I don't want to go free," NIV 5 "But if the servant declares, 'I love my master and my wife and children and do not want to go free,' CEB 6 then his master will bring him before God. He will bring him to the door or the doorpost. There his master will pierce his ear with a pointed tool, and he will serve him as his slave for life. NIV 6 then his master must take him before the judges. He shall take him to the door or the doorpost and pierce his ear with an awl. Then he will be his servant for life. CEB 7 When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she shouldn't be set free in the same way as male slaves are set free. NIV 7 "If a man sells his daughter as a servant, she is not to go free as menservants do. CEB 8 If she doesn't please her master who chose her for himself, then her master must let her be bought back by her family. He has no right to sell her to a foreign people since he has treated her unfairly. NIV 8 If she does not please the master who has selected her for himself, he must let her be redeemed. He has no right to sell her to foreigners, because he has broken faith with her. CEB 9 If he assigns her to his son, he must give her the rights of a daughter. NIV 9 If he selects her for his son, he must grant her the rights of a daughter. CEB 10 If he takes another woman for himself, he may not reduce her food, clothing, or marital rights. NIV 10 If he marries another woman, he must not deprive the first one of her food, clothing and marital rights. CEB 11 If he doesn't do these three things for her, she will go free without any payment, for no money. NIV 11 If he does not provide her with these three things, she is to go free, without any payment of money. CEB 12 Anyone who hits and kills someone should be put to death. NIV 12 "Anyone who strikes a man and kills him shall surely be put to death. CEB 13 If the killing wasn't on purpose but an accident allowed by God, then I will designate a place to which the killer can run away. NIV 13 However, if he does not do it intentionally, but God lets it happen, he is to flee to a place I will designate. CEB 14 But if someone plots and kills another person on purpose, you should remove the killer from my altar and put him to death. NIV 14 But if a man schemes and kills another man deliberately, take him away from my altar and put him to death. CEB 15 Anyone who violently hits their father or mother should be put to death. NIV 15 "Anyone who attacks his father or his mother must be put to death. CEB 16 Anyone who kidnaps a person, whether they have been sold or are still being held, should be put to death. NIV 16 "Anyone who kidnaps another and either sells him or still has him when he is caught must be put to death. CEB 17 Anyone who curses their father or mother should be put to death. NIV 17 "Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death. CEB 18 When two people are fighting and one hits the other with a stone or with his fist so that he is in bed for a while but doesn't die— NIV 18 "If men quarrel and one hits the other with a stone or with his fist and he does not die but is confined to bed, CEB 19 if he recovers and is able to walk around outside with a cane, then the one who hit him shouldn't be punished, except to pay for the loss of time from work and to pay for his full recovery. NIV 19 the one who struck the blow will not be held responsible if the other gets up and walks around outside with his staff; however, he must pay the injured man for the loss of his time and see that he is completely healed. CEB 20 When a slave owner hits a male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies immediately, the owner should be punished. NIV 20 "If a man beats his male or female slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct result, he must be punished, CEB 21 But if the slave gets up after a day or two, the slave owner shouldn't be punished because the slave is the owner's property. NIV 21 but he is not to be punished if the slave gets up after a day or two, since the slave is his property. CEB 22 When people who are fighting injure a pregnant woman so that she has a miscarriage but no other injury occurs, then the guilty party will be fined what the woman's husband demands, as negotiated with the judges. NIV 22 "If men who are fighting hit a pregnant woman and she gives birth prematurely but there is no serious injury, the offender must be fined whatever the woman's husband demands and the court allows. CEB 23 If there is further injury, then you will give a life for a life, NIV 23 But if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life, CEB 24 an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a hand for a hand, a foot for a foot, NIV 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, CEB 25 a burn for a burn, a bruise for a bruise, a wound for a wound. NIV 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise. CEB 26 When a slave owner hits and blinds the eye of a male or female slave, he should let the slave go free on account of the eye. NIV 26 "If a man hits a manservant or maidservant in the eye and destroys it, he must let the servant go free to compensate for the eye. CEB 27 If he knocks out a tooth of a male or female slave, he should let the slave go free on account of the tooth. NIV 27 And if he knocks out the tooth of a manservant or maidservant, he must let the servant go free to compensate for the tooth. CEB 28 When an ox gores a man or a woman to death, the ox should be stoned to death, and the meat of the ox shouldn't be eaten. But the owner of the ox shouldn't be punished. NIV 28 "If a bull gores a man or a woman to death, the bull must be stoned to death, and its meat must not be eaten. But the owner of the bull will not be held responsible. CEB 29 However, if the ox had gored people in the past and its owner had been warned but didn't watch out for it, and the ox ends up killing a man or a woman, then the ox should be stoned to death, and its owner should also be put to death. NIV 29 If, however, the bull has had the habit of goring and the owner has been warned but has not kept it penned up and it kills a man or woman, the bull must be stoned and the owner also must be put to death. CEB 30 If the owner has to pay compensation instead, he must pay the agreed amount to save his life. NIV 30 However, if payment is demanded of him, he may redeem his life by paying whatever is demanded. CEB 31 If the ox gores a boy or a girl, this same case law applies to the owner. NIV 31 This law also applies if the bull gores a son or daughter. CEB 32 If the ox gores a male or female slave, the owner will pay thirty silver shekels to the slave's owner, and the ox will be stoned to death. NIV 32 If the bull gores a male or female slave, the owner must pay thirty shekels of silver to the master of the slave, and the bull must be stoned. CEB 33 When someone leaves a pit open or digs a pit and doesn't cover it and an ox or a donkey falls into the pit, NIV 33 "If a man uncovers a pit or digs one and fails to cover it and an ox or a donkey falls into it, CEB 34 the owner of the pit must make good on the loss. He should pay money to the ox's owner, but he may keep the dead animal. NIV 34 the owner of the pit must pay for the loss; he must pay its owner, and the dead animal will be his. CEB 35 When someone's ox hurts someone else's ox and it dies, then they should sell the live ox and divide its price. They should also divide the dead animal between them. NIV 35 "If a man's bull injures the bull of another and it dies, they are to sell the live one and divide both the money and the dead animal equally. CEB 36 But if the ox was known for goring in the past and its owner hadn't watched out for it, the owner must make good the loss, an ox for an ox, but may keep the dead animal. NIV 36 However, if it was known that the bull had the habit of goring, yet the owner did not keep it penned up, the owner must pay, animal for animal, and the dead animal will be his.
