Exodus 21:29  Exodus 22:10

29 But if the ox was accustomed to goring previously, and its owner had been warned, but he would not keep it in, and it killed a man or a woman, the ox shall be stoned, and its owner shall also be put to death.

30 If a ransom is imposed on the owner, then he shall give for the redemption of his life whatever is imposed upon him.

31 If either it gores a son or it gores a daughter, according to this judgment it shall be done to him.

32 If the ox gores a male servant or a female servant, thirty shekels of silver shall be given to their master, and the ox shall be stoned.

33 And if a man opens a pit or if a man digs a pit and does not cover it, and an ox or a donkey falls into it,

34 The owner of the pit shall make restitution; he shall give silver to its owner, and the dead animal shall be his.

35 And if one man’s ox injures another’s so that it dies, then they shall sell the live ox and divide its price; and they shall also divide the dead animal.

36 Or if it is known that the ox was accustomed to goring previously and its owner would not keep it in, he shall surely give restitution, an ox for an ox, and the dead animal shall become his.


1 If a man steals an ox or a sheep and slaughters it or sells it, he shall restore five oxen for an ox and four sheep for a sheep.

2 If the thief is found breaking in and is struck so that he dies, there shall be no bloodguiltiness for him;

3 Unless the sun has risen upon him, then there shall be bloodguiltiness for him. He shall indeed make restitution; if he has nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.

4 If what he has stolen is actually found alive in his possession, whether an ox or a donkey or a sheep, he shall restore double.

5 If a man lets a field or vineyard be grazed, that is, he lets his animal loose, and it grazes in another man’s field; from the best of his own field and from the best of his own vineyard he shall make restitution.

6 If fire breaks out and catches in thorns so that the stacked grain or the standing grain or what is growing in the field is consumed, he who started the fire shall surely make restitution.

7 If a man gives to his neighbor silver or goods to keep, and it is stolen out of the man’s house, if the thief is found, he shall restore double.

8 If the thief is not found, then the owner of the house shall come near to God to determine whether or not he laid his hand on his neighbor’s goods.

9 For every case of transgression, whether concerning an ox, concerning a donkey, concerning a sheep, concerning clothing, or concerning any lost item about which one says, This is it, the case of both parties shall come before God; he whom God declares guilty shall restore double to his neighbor.

10 If a man gives to his neighbor a donkey or an ox or a sheep or any animal to keep, and it dies or is injured or driven away, with no man seeing it;
