EXO 21:33 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;
EXO 21:34 The owner of the pit shall make it good, and give money unto
the owner of them; and the dead beast shall be his.
EXO 21:35 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.
EXO 21:36 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.
