“Justice is the discernment of what belongs to whom, and returning it to them … Old debts must be settled … ‘He shall restore it in full, and shall add a fifth to it.'” – Walter Bruegemann

“If he has sinned and has realized his guilt and will restore what he took by robbery or what he got by oppression or the deposit that was committed to him or the lost thing that he found or anything about which he has sworn falsely, he shall restore it in full and shall add a FIFTH to it, and give it to him to whom it belongs on the day he realizes his guilt.”
Leviticus 6:4‭-‬5 ESV
