New International Version
But if the owner is with the animal, the borrower will not have to pay. If the animal was hired, the money paid for the hire covers the loss.
King James Bible
But if the owner thereof be with it, he shall not make it good: if it be an hired thing, it came for his hire.
Darby Bible Translation
if the owner thereof be with it, he shall not make [it] good; if it be a hired [thing], it came for its hire.
World English Bible
If its owner is with it, he shall not make it good. If it is a leased thing, it came for its lease.
Young's Literal Translation
if its owner is with it, he doth not repay, -- if it is a hired thing, it hath come for its hire.
Exodus 22:15 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
If it be torn in pieces - let him bring it for witness - Rather, Let him bring עד הטרפה ed hatterephah, a testimony or evidence of the torn thing, such as the horns, hoofs, etc. This is still a law in some countries among graziers: if a horse, cow, sheep, or goat, entrusted to them, be lost, and the keeper asserts it was devoured by dogs, etc., the law obliges him to produce the horns and hoofs, because on these the owner's mark is generally found. If these can be produced, the keeper is acquitted by the law. The ear is often the place marked, but this is not absolutely required, because a ravenous beast may eat the ear as well as any other part, but he cannot eat the horns or the hoofs. It seems however that in after times two of the legs and the ear were required as evidences to acquit the shepherd of all guilt. See Amos 3:12.

The first is proved thus. Natural law, as far as its first principles are concerned, is contained in the decalogue; but usury is prohibited in the decalogue, inasmuch as theft is prohibited; and this is the opinion of the Master of the Sentences, of St. Bonaventura, of St. Thomas …
