1 Haec sunt iudicia, quae propones eis:
2 Si emeris servum Hebraeum, sex annis serviet tibi; in septimo egredietur liber gratis.
3 Si solus intraverit, solus exeat; si habens uxorem, et uxor egredietur simul.
4 Sin autem dominus dederit illi uxorem, et pepererit filios et filias, mulier et liberi eius erunt domini sui; ipse vero exibit solus.
5 Quod si dixerit servus: "Diligo dominum meum et uxorem ac liberos, non egrediar liber",
6 afferet eum dominus ad Deum et applicabit eum ad ostium vel postes perforabitque aurem eius subula; et erit ei servus in saeculum.
7 Si quis vendiderit filiam suam in famulam, non egredietur sicut servi exire consueverunt.
8 Si displicuerit oculis domini sui, cui tradita fuerat, faciat eam redimi; populo autem alieno vendendi non habebit potestatem, quia fraudavit eam.
9 Sin autem filio suo desponderit eam, iuxta morem filiarum faciet illi.
10 Quod si alteram sibi acceperit, cibum et vestimentum et concubitum non negabit.
11 Si tria ista non fecerit ei, egredietur gratis absque pretio.
12 Qui percusserit hominem, et ille mortuus fuerit, morte moriatur.
13 Qui autem non est insidiatus, sed Deus illum tradidit in manus eius, constituam tibi locum, in quem fugere debeat.
14 Si quis de industria occiderit proximum suum et per insidias, ab altari meo evelles eum, ut moriatur.
15 Qui percusserit patrem suum aut matrem, morte moriatur.
16 Qui furatus fuerit hominem sive vendiderit eum sive inventus fuerit in manu eius, morte moriatur.
17 Qui maledixerit patri suo vel matri, morte moriatur.
18 Si rixati fuerint viri, et percusserit alter proximum suum lapide vel pugno, et ille mortuus non fuerit, sed iacuerit in lectulo,
19 si surrexerit et ambulaverit foris super baculum suum, impunitus erit, qui percusserit, ita tamen, ut operas eius deperditas et impensas pro medela restituat.
20 Qui percusserit servum suum vel ancillam virga, et mortui fuerint in manibus eius, ultioni subiacetur.
21 Sin autem uno die vel duobus supervixerit, non subiacebit poenae, quia pecunia illius est.
22 Si rixati fuerint viri, et percusserit quis mulierem praegnantem et abortivum quidem fecerit, sed aliud quid adversi non acciderit, subiacebit damno, quantum maritus mulieris expetierit, et arbitri iudicaverint.
23 Sin autem quid adversi acciderit, reddet animam pro anima,
24 oculum pro oculo, dentem pro dente, manum pro manu, pedem pro pede,
25 adustionem pro adustione, vulnus pro vulnere, livorem pro livore.
26 Si percusserit quispiam oculum servi sui aut ancillae et luscos eos fecerit, dimittet eos liberos pro oculo.
27 Dentem quoque si excusserit servo vel ancillae suae, dimittet eos liberos pro dente.
28 Si bos cornu percusserit virum aut mulierem, et mortui fuerint, lapidibus obruetur, et non comedentur carnes eius; dominus autem bovis innocens erit.
29 Quod si bos cornupeta fuerit ab heri et nudiustertius, et contestati sunt dominum eius, nec recluserit eum, occideritque virum aut mulierem: et bos lapidibus obruetur, et dominum illius occident.
30 Quod si pretium ei fuerit impositum, dabit pro anima sua, quidquid fuerit postulatus.
31 Filium quoque vel filiam si cornu percusserit, simili sententiae subiacebit.
32 Si servum vel ancillam invaserit, triginta siclos argenti dabit domino; bos vero lapidibus opprimetur.
33 Si quis aperuerit cisternam vel foderit et non operuerit eam, cedideritque bos vel asinus in eam,
34 dominus cisternae reddet pretium iumentorum; quod autem mortuum est, ipsius erit.
35 Si bos alienus bovem alterius vulneraverit, et ille mortuus fuerit, vendent bovem vivum et divident pretium; cadaver autem mortui inter se dispertient.
36 Sin autem notum erat quod bos cornupeta esset ab heri et nudiustertius, et non custodivit eum dominus suus, reddet bovem pro bove et cadaver integrum accipiet.
37 Si quis furatus fuerit bovem aut ovem et occiderit vel vendiderit, quinque boves pro uno bove restituet et quattuor oves pro una ove.
King James Version
1 Now these are the judgments which thou shalt set before them.
2 If thou buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.
3 If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were married, then his wife shall go out with him.
4 If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself.
5 And 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 the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever.
7 ¶ And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go out as the menservants do.
8 If she please not her master, who hath betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a strange nation he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her.
9 And if he have betrothed 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 duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.
11 And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out free without money.
12 ¶ He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.
13 And if a man lie not in wait, but God deliver him into his hand; then I will appoint thee a place whither he shall flee.
14 But if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbour, to slay him with guile; thou shalt take him from mine altar, that he may die.
15 ¶ And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.
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.
17 ¶ And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death.
18 ¶ And if men strive together, and one smite another with a stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keepeth 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.
20 ¶ And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished.
21 Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money.
22 ¶ If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.
23 And if any mischief 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.
26 ¶ And if a man smite the eye of his servant, or the eye of his maid, that it perish; he shall let him go free for his eye's sake.
27 And if he smite out his manservant's tooth, or his maidservant's tooth; he shall let him go free for his tooth's sake.
28 ¶ If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox shall be surely stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be quit.
29 But if the ox were wont to push with his horn in time past, and it hath been testified to his owner, and he hath not kept him in, but that he hath killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and his owner also shall be put to death.
30 If there be laid on him a sum of money, then he shall give for the ransom of his life whatsoever is laid upon him.
31 Whether he have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according to this judgment shall it be done unto him.
32 If the ox shall push a manservant or a maidservant; he shall give unto their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned.
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, and give money unto the owner of them; and the dead beast shall be his.
35 ¶ And if one man's ox hurt another's, that he die; then they shall sell the live ox, and divide the money of it; and the dead ox also they shall divide.
36 Or if it be known that the ox hath used to push in time past, and his owner hath not kept him in; he shall surely pay ox for ox; and the dead shall be his own.
