22:1 If a man shall steal an a ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.

    (a) Either a great beast of the herd, or a small beast of the flock.
22:2 If a thief be found b breaking up, and be smitten that he die, [there shall] no blood [be shed] for him.
    (b) Breaking a house to enter in, or undermining.
22:3 If the sun be risen upon him, [there shall be] c blood [shed] for him; [for] he should make full restitution; if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.
    (c) He shall be put to death that kills him.
22:8 If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall be brought unto the judges, [to see] whether he have d put his hand unto his neighbour's goods.
    (d) That is, whether he has stolen.
22:11 e [Then] shall an oath of the LORD be between them both, that he hath not put his hand unto his neighbour's goods; and the owner of it shall accept [thereof], and he shall not make [it] good.
    (e) They should swear by the name of the Lord.
22:13 If it be torn in pieces, [then] let him bring f it [for] witness, [and] he shall not make good that which was torn.

    (f) He shall show some part of the beast or bring in witnesses.
22:15 [But] if the owner thereof [be] with it, he shall not make [it] good: if it [be] an hired [thing], it g came for his hire.
    (g) He that hired it shall be free by paying the hire.
22:24 And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your h wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.
    (h) The just plague of God on the oppressors.
22:27 For that [is] his covering only, it [is] his raiment for his skin: wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he i crieth unto me, that I will hear; for I [am] gracious.
    (i) For cold and necessity.
22:29 Thou shalt not delay [to offer] the k first of thy ripe fruits, and of thy liquors: the firstborn of thy sons shalt thou give unto me.
    (k) Your abundance of your corn.
22:31 And ye shall be holy men unto me: neither shall ye eat [any] flesh [that is] torn of beasts in the field; ye shall cast it l to the dogs.
    (l) And so have nothing to do with it.
