Exodus Chapter 21

, , , . 1 Now these are the ordinances which thou shalt set before them.
, ; -- , . 2 If thou buy a Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve; and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.
- , ; - , . 3 If he come in by himself, he shall go out by himself; if he be married, then his wife shall go out with him.
- - , - -- , , , . 4 If his master give him a wife, and she bear him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself.
- , , -, - -; , . 5 But if the servant shall plainly say: I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free;
, -, -, -; - , . {} 6 then his master shall bring him unto God, and shall bring him to the door, or unto the door-post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an awl; and he shall serve him for ever. {S}
- -, -- , . 7 And if a man sell his daughter to be a maid-servant, she shall not go out as the men-servants do.
- , - () --: - , -. 8 If she please not her master, who hath espoused her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed; to sell her unto a foreign people he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her.
-, -- , -. 9 And if he espouse her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.
-, --- , . 10 If he take him another wife, her food, her raiment, and her conjugal rights, shall he not diminish.
---- , : , . {} 11 And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out for nothing, without money. {S}
, . 12 He that smiteth a man, so that he dieth, shall surely be put to death.
, -- , . {} 13 And if a man lie not in wait, but God cause it to come to hand; then I will appoint thee a place whither he may flee. {S}
- -, -- , . {} 14 And if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbour, to slay him with guile; thou shalt take him from Mine altar, that he may die. {S}
, . {} 15 And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death. {S}
, . {} 16 And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death. {S}
, . {} 17 And he that curseth his father or his mother, shall surely be put to death. {S}
- --- -, ; , . 18 And if men contend, and one smite the other with a stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keep his bed;
- , --- : , . {} 19 if he rise again, and walk abroad upon his staff, then shall he that smote him be quit; only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall cause him to be thoroughly healed. {S}
- - -, , , --, . 20 And if a man smite his bondman, or his bondwoman, with a rod, and he die under his hand, he shall surely be punished.
- , -- , . {} 21 Notwithstanding if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished; for he is his money. {S}
- , , , -- , , , . 22 And if men strive together, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart, and yet no harm follow, he shall be surely fined, according as the woman's husband shall lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.
-, -- , . 23 But if any harm follow, then thou shalt give life for life,
, , , . 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
, , , . {} 25 burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe. {S}
- - , -- --: , . 26 And if a man smite the eye of his bondman, or the eye of his bondwoman, and destroy it, he shall let him go free for his eye's sake.
- - , -- , . {} 27 And if he smite out his bondman's tooth, or his bondwoman's tooth, he shall let him go free for his tooth's sake. {P}
- - -, -- , -, , . 28 And if an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die, the ox shall be surely stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be quit.
, , , --, , -, . 29 But if the ox was wont to gore in time past, and warning hath been given to its owner, and he hath not kept it in, but it hath killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and its owner also shall be put to death.
-, -- , - . 30 If there be laid on him a ransom, then he shall give for the redemption of his life whatsoever is laid upon him.
- , - -- , . 31 Whether it have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according to this judgment shall it be done unto him.
- , -- , , , . {} 32 If the ox gore a bondman or a bondwoman, he shall give unto their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned. {S}
- , - -- ; - , . 33 And if a man shall open a pit, or if a man shall dig a pit and not cover it, and an ox or an ass fall therein,
, ; , -. {} 34 the owner of the pit shall make it good; he shall give money unto the owner of them, and the dead beast shall be his. {S}
- - - , -- - , -, -, . 35 And if one man's ox hurt another's, so that it dieth; then they shall sell the live ox, and divide the price of it; and the dead also they shall divide.
, , , -- , -. {} 36 Or if it be known that the ox was wont to gore in time past, and its owner hath not kept it in; he shall surely pay ox for ox, and the dead beast shall be his own. {S}
- -, -- , , -, . 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.
