“If the theft be certainely found in his hand aliue, whether it bee oxe or asse, or sheepe, he shall restore double.”
King James Version (KJV)
1. If a man shal steale an oxe, or a sheepe, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore fiue oxen for an oxe, and foure sheepe for a sheepe. 2. ¶ If a thiefe bee found breaking vp, and be smitten that he die, there shal no blood be shed for him. 3. If the Sunne be risen vpon him, there shall be blood shed for him: for hee should make full restitution: if he haue nothing, then he shall bee sold for his theft. 4. If the theft be certainely found in his hand aliue, whether it bee oxe or asse, or sheepe, he shall restore double. 5. ¶ If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall put in his beast, and shall feede in another mans field: of the best of his owne field, and of the best of his owne vineyard shall he make restitution. 6. ¶ If fire breake out, and catch in thornes, so that the stackes of corne, or the standing corne, or the field be consumed therewith; hee that kindled the fire, shall surely make restitution. 7. ¶ If a man shal deliuer vnto his neighbour money or stuffe to keepe, and it be stollen out of the mans house; if the thiefe be found, let him pay double.
