NET © Notes

sn The point that this section of the laws makes is that one must ensure the safety of others by controlling the circumstances.

tn Traditionally “ox,” but “bull” would also be suitable. The term may refer to one of any variety of large cattle.

tn Heb “and he dies”; KJV “that they die”; NAB, NASB “to death.”

tn The text uses סָקוֹל יִסָּקֵל (saqol yissaqel), a Qal infinitive absolute with a Niphal imperfect. The infinitive intensifies the imperfect, which here has an obligatory nuance or is a future of instruction.
