Unchecked Copy BoxExo 21:20 - “If a man beats his male or female slave with a club and the slave dies as a result, the owner must be punished.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 21:21 - But if the slave recovers within a day or two, then the owner shall not be punished, since the slave is his property.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 21:22 - “Now suppose two men are fighting, and in the process they accidentally strike a pregnant woman so she gives birth prematurely.[fn] If no further injury results, the man who struck the woman must pay the amount of compensation the woman’s husband demands and the judges approve.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 21:23 - But if there is further injury, the punishment must match the injury: a life for a life,

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 21:24 - an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a hand for a hand, a foot for a foot,

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 21:25 - a burn for a burn, a wound for a wound, a bruise for a bruise.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 21:26 - “If a man hits his male or female slave in the eye and the eye is blinded, he must let the slave go free to compensate for the eye.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 21:27 - And if a man knocks out the tooth of his male or female slave, he must let the slave go free to compensate for the tooth.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 21:35 - “If someone’s ox injures a neighbor’s ox and the injured ox dies, then the two owners must sell the live ox and divide the price equally between them. They must also divide the dead animal.

Unchecked Copy BoxExo 21:36 - But if the ox had a reputation for goring, yet its owner failed to keep it under control, he must pay full compensation—a live ox for the dead one—but he may keep the dead ox.
