1 Laws about property
2 If a thief be found Mat. 24:43breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there shall Num. 35:27no blood be shed for him.
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 ch. 21:2sold for his theft.
4 If the theft be certainly ch. 21:16found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep; he shall See ver. 1,7;Prov. 6:31restore double.
5 If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall put 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.
6 If fire break out, and catch in thorns, so that the stacks of corn, or the standing corn, or the field, be consumed therewith; he that kindled the fire shall surely 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; ver. 4if 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 ch. 21:6;ver. 28judges, 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 Deut. 25:1;2 Chr. 19:10cause 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:
11 Then shall an Heb. 6:16oath of the Lord be between them both, that he hath not put his hand unto his neighbour's goods; and the owner of it shall accept thereof, and he shall not make it good.
12 And Gen. 31:39if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution unto the owner thereof.
13 If it be torn in pieces, then let him bring it for witness, and he shall not make good that which was torn.
14 And if a man borrow ought of his neighbour, and it be hurt, or die, the owner thereof being not with it, he shall surely make it good.
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.
16 Laws about personal actions
16 And Deut. 22:28,29if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife.
18 1 Sam. 28:3Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.
19 Lev. 18:23Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely be put to death.
20 Deut. 17:2,3,5He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the Lord only, he shall be utterly destroyed.
21 Deut. 10:19Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.
22 Jas. 1:27Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.
23 If thou afflict them in any wise, and they Luke 18:7cry at all unto me, I will surely Ps. 18:6hear their cry;
24 And my Ps. 69:24wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and Ps. 109:9your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.
25 Ps. 15:5If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou shalt not be to him as an usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him usury.
26 Deut. 24:6If thou at all take thy neighbour's raiment to pledge, thou shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down:
27 For that is his covering only, 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 ch. 34:6gracious.
30 Deut. 15:19Likewise shalt thou do with thine oxen, and with thy sheep: Lev. 22:27seven days it shall be with his dam; on the eighth day thou shalt give it me.
31 And ye shall be Lev. 19:2holy men unto me: Ezek. 4:14neither shall ye eat any flesh that is torn of beasts in the field; ye shall cast it to the dogs.
