Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Exodus 22

Of theft.

Exodus 22:1 When a man stealeth an ox or a sheep, and slayeth it, or selleth it, with five of the herd, shall he make good—for the ox, or with four of the flock, for the sheep.

Exodus 22:2 If, in the place of breaking in, the thief be found and he is smitten so that he dieth, there is due for him no shedding of blood: Exodus 22:3 should the sun have arisen upon him, there would be shedding of blood due for him,—he is, surely to make restitution, if he hath nothing, then is he to be sold, for his theft. Exodus 22:4 If the thing stolen is, found in his hand—whether ox, or ass, or sheep, alive, with two, shall he make restitution.

Of damage.

Exodus 22:5 When a man causeth a field or a vineyard to be depastured, or hath sent in his own cattle and stripped the field of another, he shall, surely make restitution, out of his own field, according to the yield thereof; or, if, all the field, he depasture, with the best of his own field, or with the best of his own vineyard, shall he make restitution.

Exodus 22:6 When a fire breaketh out, and hath come upon thorns, and so there is consumed a stack of sheaves, or the standing corn, or the field, he that kindled the fire, shall surely make restitution.

Of trespasses.

Exodus 22:7 When a man giveth unto his neighbour silver or jewelry, to keep, and it is stolen out of the house of the man: Exodus 22:8 if the thief be found, he shall give in restitution, double: if the thief be not found, then shall the owner of the house be brought near unto God [to swear] that he hath not laid his hand on the property of his neighbour. Exodus 22:9 For any affair of trespass—for an ox, for an ass, for a sheep, for a mantle, for anything lost, as to which one could say—This is, it, unto God, shall come the affair of them both,—he whom God shall condemn, shall make restitution of double, to his neighbour. Exodus 22:10 When a man delivereth unto his neighbour, an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or any beast, to keep,—and it dieth, or is fractured, or is driven away, no one beholding, Exodus 22:11 the oath of Yahweh, shall come between them both, That he hath not laid his hand on the property of his neighbour,—then shall the owner thereof accept it, and he shall not make restitution. Exodus 22:12 But, if it be, verily stolen, from him, he shall make restitution to the owner thereof. Exodus 22:13 If it be, verily torn in pieces, he shall bring it in as a witness—for that which was torn, he shall not make restitution.

Of borrowing.

Exodus 22:14 And, when a man asketh aught of his neighbour, and it is fractured or dieth, its owner, not being with it, he shall, surely make restitution. Exodus 22:15 If, its owner, was with it, he shall not make restitution,—if it is, hired, it cometh into its hire.

Of fornication.

Exodus 22:16 And, when a man enticeth a virgin who is not betrothed, and lieth with her, he shall, surely pay a purchase-price, that she may be his wife. Exodus 22:17 If her father, utterly refuse, to give her to him, silver, shall he weigh out, according to the purchase-price of virgins.

Of witchcraft.

Exodus 22:18 A sorceress, shalt thou not suffer to live.

Of bestiality.

Exodus 22:19 Whosoever lieth with a beast, shall, surely be put to death.

Of idolatry.

Exodus 22:20 He that sacrificeth to the gods, shall be devoted to destruction,—except [he sacrificeth] to Yahweh alone.

Of strangers, widows, and fatherless.

Exodus 22:21 And, a sojourner, shalt thou not tread down, neither shalt thou drive him away,—for, sojourners, ye became in the land of Egypt.

Exodus 22:22 Neither widow nor fatherless, shalt thou humiliate: Exodus 22:23 if thou, do humiliate, him, when he in anywise crieth out unto me, I will, surely hear, his outcry: Exodus 22:24 so shall kindle mine anger, and I will slay you with the sword,—and your, wives, shall become, widows, and your, sons, fatherless.

Of usury.

Exodus 22:25 If, silver, thou wilt lend unto my people—unto the humbled one by thee, thou shalt not be to him like one that lendeth on interest,—thou shalt not lay upon him interest.

Of pledges.

Exodus 22:26 If thou, do take in pledge, the mantle of thy neighbour, by the going in of the sun, shalt thou restore it to him; Exodus 22:27 for, that, is his only covering, that, is his mantle, for his skin,—wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he maketh outcry unto me, then will I hear, because, gracious, I am.

Of reverence to magistrates.

Exodus 22:28 God, shalt thou not revile,—and, a prince among thy people, shalt thou not curse.

Of the firstfruits.

Exodus 22:29 Thy fulness and thine outflow, shalt thou not delay,—the firstborn of thy sons, shalt thou give to me. Exodus 22:30 Thus, shalt thou do with thine ox, with thy sheep,—seven days, shall it be with its dam, on the eighth day, shalt thou give it to me.

Exodus 22:31 Holy men, therefore, shall ye truly become to me,—and, flesh in the field torn to pieces, shall ye not eat, to the dogs, shall ye cast it.
