Exodus 21

Exo 21:1 And these are the judgments which you shall put before them:
Exo 21:2 When you buy a Hebrew slave, he shall serve six years And in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.
Exo 21:3 If he comes in with his body, he shall go out with his body. If he was the husband of a wife, his wife shall go out with him.
Exo 21:4 If his master gives him a wife, and she bears sons or daughters to him, the wife and her children shall belong to her master; and he shall go out with his body.
Exo 21:5 And if the slave truly says, I love my master, my wife and my children; I do not desire to go out free,
Exo 21:6 his master shall bring him to God, and one shall bring him to the door, or to the doorpost; and his master shall pierce his ear with an awl, and he shall serve him forever.
Exo 21:7 And when a man sells his daughter for a slave-girl, she shall not go out as the male slaves go out.
Exo 21:8 If she is bad in the eyes of her master who has appointed her for himself, he shall allow her redemption. He shall not have power to sell her to a foreign people, in his deceiving her.
Exo 21:9 And if he chooses her for his son, he shall do to her as is the custom of daughters.
Exo 21:10 If he takes another for himself, her flesh, her clothing, and her conjugal right shall not be diminished.
Exo 21:11 And if he does not do these three for her, she shall go out for nothing, without silver.
Exo 21:12 He that strikes a man so that he dies, dying he shall die.
Exo 21:13 But he who does not lie in wait, and God lets fall into his hand, I will appoint a place for you where he may flee.
Exo 21:14 And when a man seethes insolently against his neighbor, to kill him by deceit, you shall take him from My altar to die.
Exo 21:15 And he who strikes his father or his mother dying shall die.
Exo 21:16 And he that steals a man and sells him, or if he is found in his hand, dying he shall die.
Exo 21:17 And he who curses his father or his mother, dying he shall die.
Exo 21:18 And when men strive, and one strikes his neighbor with a stone, or with a fist, and he does not die, but falls on his bed,
Exo 21:19 if he rises and walks about in the street on his staff, the one who struck him shall be innocent; only he shall pay his sitting; paying he shall pay for his healing.
Exo 21:20 And if a man strikes his male slave or his slave-girl with a rod, and he dies under his hand, avenging he shall be avenged.
Exo 21:21 But if he continues a day or two, he shall not be avenged, for he is his silver.
Exo 21:22 And when men fight, and they strike a pregnant woman, and her child goes forth, and there is no injury, being fined he shall be fined. As much as the husband of the woman shall put on him, even he shall give through the judges.
Exo 21:23 But if injury occurs, you shall give life for life,
Exo 21:24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
Exo 21:25 branding for branding, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
Exo 21:26 And when a man strikes the eye of his male slave, or the eye of his slave-girl and destroys it, he shall send him away free for his eye.
Exo 21:27 And if he causes the tooth of his male slave, or the tooth of his slave-girl, to fall out, he shall send him away free for his tooth.
Exo 21:28 And when an ox gores a man so that he dies, the ox stoning shall be stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten, and the owner of the ox is innocent.
Exo 21:29 And if he was an ox apt to gore from yesterday and the third day, and its owner is given warning, and he does not watch him, and he kills a man or a woman, the ox shall be stoned, and its owner also shall die.
Exo 21:30 If a ransom is put on him, he shall give the redemption of his life, according to all which is put on him.
Exo 21:31 Whether he gores a son or he gores a daughter, according to this judgment it shall be done to him.
Exo 21:32 If the ox gores a male slave or a slave-girl, he shall give thirty silver shekels to his master, and the ox shall be stoned.
Exo 21:33 And when a man opens a pit, or when a man digs a pit, and does not cover it, and an ox or an ass falls into it,
Exo 21:34 the owner of the pit shall pay; he shall give silver to its owner, and the dead shall be his.
Exo 21:35 And when a man’s ox strikes against the ox of his neighbor, and it dies, they shall sell the living ox, and they shall divide the silver; and they shall also divide the dead.
Exo 21:36 Or if it was known that he was an ox apt to gore from yesterday and the third day, and his owner does not watch him, he shall pay ox for ox, and the dead shall be his.

On this day...
