If he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft. NIV 3 but if it happens after sunrise, the defender is guilty of bloodshed. “Anyone who steals must certainly make restitution, but if they have nothing, they must be sold to pay for their theft.

TMBA 9 "For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing which another challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay double unto his neighbor. NIV 9 In all cases of illegal possession of an ox, a donkey, a sheep, a garment, or any other lost property about which somebody says, ‘This is mine,’ both parties are to bring their cases before the judges.

The owner is to accept this, and no restitution is required. TMBA 12 And if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution unto the owner thereof. NIV 12 But if the animal was stolen from the neighbor, restitution must be made to the owner. TMBA 13 If it be torn in pieces, then let him bring it for witness, and he shall not make good that which was torn. NIV 13 If it was torn to pieces by a wild animal, the neighbor shall bring in the remains as evidence and shall not be required to pay for the torn animal.

NIV 14 “If anyone borrows an animal from their neighbor and it is injured or dies while the owner is not present, they must make restitution. TMBA 15 But if the owner thereof be with it, he shall not make it good; if it be a hired thing, it came for his hire. NIV 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. TMBA 16 "And if a man entice a maid who is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife.

It is his raiment for his skin. Wherein shall he sleep? And it shall come to pass, when he crieth unto Me, that I will hear, for I am gracious. NIV 27 because that cloak is the only covering your neighbor has. What else can they sleep in? When they cry out to me, I will hear, for I am compassionate.
