I see. Thank you. So, would it be correct to say that if the woman died because he hurt her, the man would still not be executed for that?

"It means "give the [value] of a life for [taking] a life". I.e. that the punishment should fit the crime, rather than death" - I don't understand. Can you, please, elaborate here?

"Despite the death of the baby, the punishment is a fine, rather than a punishment for killing" - Do not the words in the following verse "then thou shalt give life for life" imply punishment for killing?

@Ariel - I myself don't know, because I don't know whether "harm" in this place could mean a damage done to the departed fruit - even to the extent of the fruit's death - or it's only related to the mother.

comment How did a virgin decide upon her marriage in Israel 2000 years ago?
@SethJ - If it's possible, I would really like to have both. And just to make sure - I am still after how it was 2000 years ago.

@SethJ - Well, I am more interested in how the matters stood in that particular time, and I suppose things could have changed since that time.
