Laws of justice which Hammurabi, the wise king, established.
Epilogue to the Code of Hammurabi (translated by Leonard William King, 1910).
If any one owe a debt for a loan, and a storm prostrates the grain, or the harvest fail, or the grain does not grow for lack of water; in that year he need not give his creditor any grain, he washes his debt-tablet in water and pays no rent for this year.Hammurabi
Anu and Bel called by name me, Hammurabi, the exalted prince, who feared God, to bring about the rule of righteousness in the land.Hammurabi
If a man put out the eye of another man, his eye shall be put out.Hammurabi
