  3 H8121 If the sun H2224 [H8804] shall have risen H1818 upon him, there shall be blood H7999 [H8763] shed for him; for he should make full H7999 [H8762] restitution; H4376 [H8738] if he have nothing, then he shall be sold H1591 for his theft.
  4 H1591 If the theft H4672 [H8736] shall be certainly H4672 [H8735] found H3027 in his hand H2416 alive, H7794 whether an ox, H2543 or donkey, H7716 or sheep; H7999 [H8762] he shall restore H8147 double.

  10 H376 If a man H5414 [H8799] shall give H7453 to his neighbour H2543 a donkey, H7794 or an ox, H7716 or a sheep, H929 or any beast, H8104 [H8800] to keep; H4191 [H8804] and it shall die, H7665 [H8738] or be hurt, H7617 [H8738] or driven away, H7200 [H8802] no man seeing it:

  12 H1589 H1589 [H8800] And if it shall be stolen H7999 [H8762] from him, he shall make restitution H1167 to the owner of it.

  15 H1167 But if the owner H7999 [H8762] of it shall be with it, he shall not make it good: H7916 if it be an hired H935 [H8804] thing, it came H7939 for his hire.
  16 H376 And if a man H6601 [H8762] shall entice H1330 a virgin H781 [H8795] that is not betrothed, H7901 [H8804] and lie H4117 [H8800] with her, he shall surely H4117 [H8799] endow H802 her to be his wife.
  17 H1 If her father H3985 [H8763] shall utterly H3985 [H8762] refuse H5414 [H8800] to give H8254 [H8799] her to him, he shall pay H3701 money H4119 according to the dowry H1330 of virgins.
  18 H3784 [H8764] Thou shalt not allow a witch H2421 [H8762] to live.

  20 H2076 [H8802] He that sacrificeth H430 to any god, H1115 except H3068 to the LORD H2763 [H8714] only, he shall be secluded.
  21 H3238 [H8686] Thou shalt neither maltreat H1616 a guest, H3905 [H8799] nor oppress H1616 him: for ye were guests H776 in the land H4714 of Egypt.
  22 H6031 [H8762] Ye shall not afflict H490 any widow, H3490 or fatherless child.
  23 H518 If H6031 [H8762] thou shalt afflict H6031 [H8763] them in any way, H6817 [H8799] and they shriek H6817 [H8800] at all H8085 [H8800] to me, I will surely H8085 [H8799] hear H6818 their shriek;
  24 H639 And my anger H2734 [H8804] shall burn, H2026 [H8804] and I will kill H2719 you with the sword; H802 and your wives H490 shall be widows, H1121 and your sons H3490 fatherless.
  25 H3867 [H8686] If thou shalt lend H3701 money H5971 to any of my people H6041 that is poor H5383 [H8802] among you, thou shalt not be to him as a money-lender, H7760 [H8799] neither shalt thou charge H5392 him interest.
  26 H2254 [H8800] If thou shalt at all H2254 0 take H7453 thy neighbour's H8008 raiment H2254 [H8799] to pledge, H7725 [H8686] thou shalt deliver H5704 it to him by H935 [H8800] the setting H8121 of the sun.
  27 H3682 For that is his only covering, H8071 it is his raiment H5785 for his skin: H7901 [H8799] what shall he sleep in? H6817 [H8799] and it shall come to pass, when he shrieketh H8085 [H8804] to me, that I will hear; H2587 for I am gracious.
  28 H7043 [H8762] Thou shalt not revile H430 the judges, H779 [H8799] nor curse H5387 the ruler H5971 of thy people.
  29 H309 [H8762] Thou shalt not delay H4395 to offer the first of thy ripe fruits, H1831 and of thy liquors: H1060 the firstborn H1121 of thy sons H5414 [H8799] shalt thou give to me.
  30 H3651 Likewise H6213 [H8799] shalt thou do H7794 with thy oxen, H6629 and with thy sheep: H7651 seven H3117 days H517 it shall be with his dam; H8066 on the eighth H3117 day H5414 [H8799] thou shalt give it to me.
  31 H6944 And ye shall be holy H582 men H398 [H8799] to me: neither shall ye eat H1320 any flesh H2966 that is torn of beasts H7704 in the field; H7993 [H8686] ye shall cast H3611 it to the dogs.

  52 G5119 Then G3004 [G5719] saith G3588   G2424 Jesus G846 to him, G654 [G5657] { Put up again G4675 thy G3588   G3162 sword G1519 into G3588   G846 its G5117 place: G1063 for G3596 all G3588 the ones G2983 [G5631] taking G3162 the sword G622 [G5698] shall be made lost G1722 by G3162 the sword.}
  53 G2228 { G1380 [G5719] Thinkest thou G3754 that G3756 G1410 [G5736] I cannot G737 now G3870 [G5658] pray G3450 to my G3962 Father, G2532 and G3936 [G5692] he shall presently give G3427 me G4119 more G2228 than G1427 twelve G3003 legions G32 of messengers?}

Romans 13:4

  4 G1063 For G2076 [G5748] he is G1249 the servant G2316 of God G4671 to thee G1519 for G18 good. G1161 But G1437 if G4160 [G5725] thou doest G2556 that which is bad, G5399 [G5737] be afraid; G1063 for G5409 [G5719] he beareth G3756 not G3162 the sword G1500 in vain: G1063 for G2076 [G5748] he is G1249 the servant G2316 of God, G1558 an avenger G3709 to execute wrath G1519 upon G4238 [G5723] him that doeth G2556 bad.
