In all cases of illegal possessions, 1  whether for an ox, a donkey, a sheep, a garment, or any kind of lost item, about which someone says ‘This belongs to me,’ 2  the matter of the two of them will come before the judges, 3  and the one whom 4  the judges declare guilty 5  must repay double to his neighbor.

NET © Notes

tn Heb “concerning every kind [thing] of trespass.”

tn The text simply has “this is it” (הוּא זֶה, huzeh).

tn Again, or “God.”

tn This kind of clause Gesenius calls an independent relative clause – it does not depend on a governing substantive but itself expresses a substantival idea (GKC 445-46 §138.e).

tn The verb means “to be guilty” in Qal; in Hiphil it would have a declarative sense, because a causative sense would not possibly fit.
