Laws about Animals

21:28 58 “If an ox59 gores a man or a woman so that either dies,60 then the ox must surely61 be stoned and its flesh must not be eaten, but the owner of the ox will be acquitted. 21:29 But if the ox had the habit of goring, and its owner was warned,62 and he did not take the necessary precautions,63 and then it killed a man or a woman, the ox must be stoned and the man must be put to death. 21:30 If a ransom is set for him,64 then he must pay the redemption for his life according to whatever amount was set for him. 21:31 If the ox65 gores a son or a daughter, the owner66 will be dealt with according to this rule.67 21:32 If the ox gores a male servant or a female servant, the owner68 must pay thirty shekels of silver,69 and the ox must be stoned.70

21:33 “If a man opens a pit or if a man digs a pit and does not cover it, and an ox or a donkey falls into it, 21:34 the owner of the pit must repay71 the loss. He must give money72 to its owner, and the dead animal73 will become his. 21:35 If the ox of one man injures the ox of his neighbor so that it dies, then they will sell the live ox and divide its proceeds,74 and they will also divide the dead ox.75 21:36 Or if it is known that the ox had the habit of goring, and its owner did not take the necessary precautions, he must surely pay76 ox for ox, and the dead animal will become his.77
