[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40]

22:1 (21:37) If a man steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it, he shall pay five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.

22:2 (22:1) If a thief be found breaking in, and be smitten so that he dieth, there shall be no bloodguiltiness for him.

22:3 (22:2) If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be bloodguiltiness for him--he shall make restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.

22:4 (22:3) If the theft be found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep, he shall pay double.

22:5 (22:4) If a man cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall let his beast loose, and it feed in another man's field; of the best of his own field, and of the best of his own vineyard, shall he make restitution.

22:6 (22:5) If fire break out, and catch in thorns, so that the shocks of corn, or the standing corn, or the field are consumed; he that kindled the fire shall surely make restitution.

22:7 (22:6) If a man deliver unto his neighbour money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man's house; if the thief be found, he shall pay double.

22:8 (22:7) If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall come near unto God, to see whether he have not put his hand unto his neighbour's goods.

22:9 (22:8) For every matter of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, whereof one saith: 'This is it,' the cause of both parties shall come before God; he whom God shall condemn shall pay double unto his neighbour.

22:10 (22:9) If a man deliver unto his neighbour an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or any beast, to keep, and it die, or be hurt, or driven away, no man seeing it;

22:11 (22:10) the oath of the LORD shall be between them both, to see whether he have not put his hand unto his neighbour's goods; and the owner thereof shall accept it, and he shall not make restitution.

22:12 (22:11) But if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution unto the owner thereof.

22:13 (22:12) If it be torn in pieces, let him bring it for witness; he shall not make good that which was torn.

22:14 (22:13) And if a man borrow aught of his neighbour, and it be hurt, or die, the owner thereof not being with it, he shall surely make restitution.

22:15 (22:14) If the owner thereof be with it, he shall not make it good; if it be a hireling, he loseth his hire.

22:16 (22:15) And if a man entice a virgin that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely pay a dowry for her to be his wife.

22:17 (22:16) If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.

22:18 (22:17) Thou shalt not suffer a sorceress to live.

22:19 (22:18) Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.

22:20 (22:19) He that sacrificeth unto the gods, save unto the LORD only, shall be utterly destroyed.

22:21 (22:20) And a stranger shalt thou not wrong, neither shalt thou oppress him; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

22:22 (22:21) Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.

22:23 (22:22) If thou afflict them in any wise--for if they cry at all unto Me, I will surely hear their cry--

22:24 (22:23) My wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.

22:25 (22:24) If thou lend money to any of My people, even to the poor with thee, thou shalt not be to him as a creditor; neither shall ye lay upon him interest.

22:26 (22:25) If thou at all take thy neighbour's garment to pledge, thou shalt restore it unto him by that the sun goeth down;

22:27 (22:26) for that is his only covering, it is his garment 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.

22:28 (22:27) Thou shalt not revile God, nor curse a ruler of thy people.

22:29 (22:28) Thou shalt not delay to offer of the fulness of thy harvest, and of the outflow of thy presses. The first-born of thy sons shalt thou give unto Me.

22:30 (22:29) Likewise shalt thou do with thine oxen, and with thy sheep; seven days it shall be with its dam; on the eighth day thou shalt give it Me.

22:31 (22:30) And ye shall be holy men unto Me; therefore ye shall not eat any flesh that is torn of beasts in the field; ye shall cast it to the dogs.
