21:1 Now these are the ordinances which thou shalt set before them.
21:2 If thou buy a Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.
21:3 If he come in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he be married, then his wife shall go out with him.
21:5 But if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free:
21:7 And if a man sell his daughter to be a maid-servant, she shall not go out as the men-servants do.
21:8 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.
21:9 And if he espouse her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.
21:10 If he take him another [wife]; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.
21:12 He that smiteth a man, so that he dieth, shall surely be put to death.
21:14 And if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbor, to slay him with guile; thou shalt take him from mine altar, that he may die.
21:15 And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.
21:16 And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.
21:17 And he that curseth his father or his mother, shall surely be put to death.
21:22 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.
21:25 burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
21:27 And if he smite out his man-servant`s tooth, or his maid-servant`s tooth, he shall let him go free for his tooth`s sake.
21:28 And if an ox gore a man or a woman to death, the ox shall be surely stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be quit.
21:29 But if the ox was wont to gore in time past, and it hath been testified 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.
21:30 If there be laid on him a ransom, then he shall give for the redemption of his life whatsoever is laid upon him.
21:31 Whether it have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according to this judgment shall it be done unto him.
21:32 If the ox gore a man-servant or a maid-servant, there shall be given unto their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned.
21:33 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,
21:34 the owner of the pit shall make it good; he shall give money unto the owner thereof, and the dead [beast] shall be his.
21:35 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.
21:36 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.
