244 - STEALING MONEY


Leviticus 19:11 --You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another.”
Exodus 20:15 --You shall not steal.
Exodus 22:1-4 -- 1 “If a man steals an ox or a sheep, and slaughters it or sells it, he shall restore five oxen for an ox and four sheep for a sheep. 2 If the thief is found breaking in, and he is struck so that he dies, there shall be no guilt for his bloodshed. 3 If the sun has risen on him, there shall be guilt for his bloodshed. He should make full restitution; if he has nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft. 4 If the theft is certainly found alive in his hand, whether it is an ox or donkey or sheep, he shall restore double.”

According to Maimonides, a receiver of stolen property can never attain to perfect repentance, “because he does not know who id the owner of the stolen property, since the thief steals from may persons and brings him the stolen articles; and also because the receiver encourages the thief and induces him to sin.”*

* Mada, Hilchoth Teshubah IV, 5
