The Lord reveals His laws pertaining to stealing, destructions by fire, care of the property of others, borrowing, lascivious acts, sacrifices to false gods, afflicting widows, usury, reviling God, and the firstborn of men and of animals—The men of Israel are commanded to be holy.
3 If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed for him; for he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.
4 If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall arestore double.
5 ¶ If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall aput in his beast, and shall 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.
7 ¶ If a man shall deliver unto his neighbour money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man’s house; if the thief be found, let him pay double.
8 If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall be brought unto the ajudges, to see whether he have put his hand unto his neighbour’s goods.
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 neighbour.
10 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:
12 And if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution unto the owner thereof.
13 If it be atorn in pieces, then let him bring it for witness, and he shall not make good that which was torn.
15 But if the owner thereof be with it, he shall not make it good: if it be an hired thing, it came for his hire.
16 ¶ And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his awife.
17 If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of avirgins.
18 ¶ Thou shalt not suffer a awitch to live.
19 ¶ Whosoever lieth with a abeast shall surely be put to death.
20 ¶ He that asacrificeth unto any god, save unto the Lord only, he shall be utterly destroyed.
22 ¶ Ye shall not afflict any awidow, or fatherless child.
23 If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry;
26 If thou at all take thy neighbour’s raiment to apledge, thou shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down:
30 Likewise shalt thou do with thine oxen, and with thy sheep: aseven days it shall be with his dam; on the eighth day thou shalt give it me.
