246 - THE LAW OF LITIGANTS


Exodus 22:9 -- “For any kind of trespass, whether it concerns an ox, a donkey, a sheep, or clothing, or for any kind of lost thing which another claims to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whomever the judges condemn shall pay double to his neighbor.”

The whole range of Talmudic jurisprudence on the law of litigants is embraced in this commandment. Of this branch of Talmudic law the sages say that he who would become wise should turn to it, for it is like a welling fountain.*

* B.B. 175b
