Exodus 21:28

If an ox gores a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox shall be surely stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be clear.
Read Chapter 21

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Stoned, that he may do no more harm, and that the owner may be punished at least by this loss. (Haydock) Sentence was passed by the 23 judges. By the Roman law, the animal which struck a man was forfeited to him (Calmet); and its master had to make good all damages. ( Justinian iv. 9.)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
