This chapter explains the last main section of the casuistic laws on animal injury, death, and rental (Exodus 22:9–14). This is based on laws near the end of Hammurabi's casuistic laws. The Covenant Code nuances issues of intention operative in the various cases of animal loss. This concern aligns with the Covenant Code's concern about intent in its earlier homicide and injury laws. This concern is thus central to the Covenant Code's rethinking of the many of the laws from its source texts.
