Bible: Exodus 22:1-5

22:1

Laws about Property

1 

2  “If a man steals an ox or a sheep and kills it or sells it, he must pay back 3  five head of cattle for the ox, and four sheep for the one sheep. 4 

22:2If a thief is caught 5  breaking in 6  and is struck so that he dies, there will be no blood guilt for him. 7  22:3 If the sun has risen on him, then there is blood guilt for him. A thief 8  must surely make full restitution; if he has nothing, then he will be sold for his theft. 22:4 If the stolen item should in fact be found 9  alive in his possession, 10  whether it be an ox or a donkey or a sheep, he must pay back double. 11 

22:5If a man grazes 12  his livestock 13  in a field or a vineyard, and he lets the livestock loose and they graze in the field of another man, he must make restitution from the best of his own field and the best of his own vineyard.
