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. MSG 20 "If a slave owner hits a slave, male or female, with a stick and the slave dies on the spot, the slave must be avenged. 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, MSG 21 But if the slave survives a day or two, he's not to be avenged - 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. MSG 22 "When there's a fight and in the fight a pregnant woman is hit so that she miscarries but is not otherwise hurt, the one responsible has to pay whatever the husband demands in compensation.

MSG 23 But if there is further damage, then you must give life for life NIV 23 But if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life, MSG 24 - eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, NIV 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, MSG 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise. NIV 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise. MSG 26 "If a slave owner hits the eye of a slave or handmaid and ruins it, the owner must let the slave go free because 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. MSG 27 If the owner knocks out the tooth of the male or female slave, the slave must be released and go free because of the tooth.

MSG 28 "If an ox gores a man or a woman to death, the ox must be stoned. The meat cannot be eaten but the owner of the ox is in the clear. 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. MSG 29 But if the ox has a history of goring and the owner knew it and did nothing to guard against it, then if the ox kills a man or a woman, the ox is to be stoned and the owner given the death penalty. 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. MSG 30 If a ransom is agreed upon instead of death, he must pay it in full as a redemption for his life. NIV 30 However, if payment is demanded of him, he may redeem his life by paying whatever is demanded. MSG 31 If a son or daughter is gored, the same judgment holds. NIV 31 This law also applies if the bull gores a son or daughter. MSG 32 If it is a slave or a handmaid the ox gores, thirty shekels of silver is to be paid to the owner and the ox stoned. 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.
