Mishnah 9:5 begins a series of Mishnayot interpreting Leviticus 5:21–26 and Numbers 5:6–8.

Hebrew Text[edit]

הגוזל את חברו שוה פרוטה
ונשבע לו,
יוליכנו אחריו אפלו למדי.

לא יתן לא לבנו
ולא לשלוחו,
אבל נותן לשליח בית דין.

ואם מת,
יחזיר ליורשיו.

English Translation[edit]

If one stole from another something worth a perutah
And [nonetheless] swore [that he did not do so],
He must take it to him [even if he needs to go as far as] to Media.

He may give it neither to his son
Nor to his agent,
But he may give it to an agent of the court.

If [the victim] died,
[The thief] must restore it to his heirs.


In the Babylonian Talmud, the discussion of Mishnah Bava Kamma 9:5 begins on Babylonian Talmud Bava Kamma 103a.
