And if men strive together and one smites another with a stone or with his fist and he dies not, but keeps his bed,
if he rises again and walks abroad upon his staff, then shall he that smote him be absolved, only he shall pay for the loss of his time and shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.
And if a man smites his slave or his maid with a rod and he dies under his hand, he shall be surely punished.
Notwithstanding, if he continues a day or two, he shall not be punished, for he is his money.
If men strive and hurt a woman with child so that she aborts but without death, he shall be surely punished according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him, and he shall pay by the judges.
And if there is death, then thou shalt pay life for life,
eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
And if someone smites the eye of their slave or the eye of their maid that it perishes, he shall let them go free for their eye’s sake.
And if he smites out his manslave’s tooth or his maidslave’s tooth, he shall let them go free for their tooth’s sake.
If an ox gores a man or a woman that they die, then the ox shall surely be stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be absolved.
