The Maximum Penalty For Sin
Exodus 20 explains in detail that for someone to commit sin against an innocent is punishable to a maximum of 4 times worse than the sin committed.
In Exodus 20 he uses himself as an example, he says if a man hates him the LORD he punishes 4 times of it.
The LORDs description here is meant to explain in detail how law should be limited.
An example, if someone sends an innocent man into $100 of debt, the maximum the person who caused the debt can be forced to pay back is $400.
Another example, if an innocent man is sentenced to 100 days in jail, the person who committed the error, could be forced to spend 400 days in jail.
4 times is the maximum, not a minimum, the minimum begins at nothing.
The LORDs Release
Deuteronomy 15 explains the LORDs release, which further limits the “Maximum Penalty For Sin”.
The LORDs Release explains no one can be legally bound for more than 7 years (Ending of 7 Years, Start of 8).
This means even if someone jails an innocent man for 7 years, the man who committed the error cannot be punished at 4 times the 7 years.
