Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 21:6 Verse 6. Shall bring him unto the judges] µyhlah la el haelohim, literally, to God; or, as the Septuagint have it, prov to krithrion qeou, to the judgment of God; who condescended to dwell among his people; who determined all their differences till he had given them laws for all cases, and who, by his omniscience, brought to light the hidden things of dishonesty.

Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-11 - The laws in this chapter relate to the fifth and sixth commandments and though they differ from our times and customs, nor are they bindin on us, yet they explain the moral law, and the rules of natura justice.
