SAA Notes

Restitution is a major part of making things right with God and with our neighbours. In ancient Israel there were no jails as such. When caught stealing, you and your extended family had to make restitution – often up to 20% more. Policing was done by the extended family, which was held responsible for your debts. This is a clan society. Victims saw justice.
