1. 46

    न निष्क्रयविसर्गाभ्यां भर्तुर्भार्या विमुच्यते । एवं धर्मं विजानीमः प्राक् प्रजापतिनिर्मितम् ॥ ४६ ॥

    Neither by sale nor by repudiation is a wife released from her husband; such we know the law to be, which the Lord of creatures (Pragapati) made of old.

  2. 47

    सकृदंशो निपतति सकृत् कन्या प्रदीयते । सकृदाह ददानीति त्रीण्येतानि सतां सकृत् ॥ ४७ ॥

    Once is the partition (of the inheritance) made, (once is) a maiden given in marriage, (and) once does (a man) say,’I will give;’each of those three (acts is done) once only.

  3. 48

    यथा गोऽश्वोष्ट्रदासीषु महिष्यजाविकासु च । नोत्पादकः प्रजाभागी तथैवान्याङ्गनास्वपि ॥ ४८ ॥

    As with cows, mares, female camels, slave-girls, buffalo-cows, she-goats, and ewes, it is not the begetter (or his owner) who obtains the offspring, even thus (it is) with the wives of others.

  4. 49

    येऽक्षेत्रिणो बीजवन्तः परक्षेत्रप्रवापिणः । ते वै सस्यस्य जातस्य न लभन्ते फलं क्व चित् ॥ ४९ ॥

    Those who, having no property in a field, but possessing seed-corn, sow it in another’s soil, do indeed not receive the grain of the crop which may spring up.

  5. 50

    यदन्यगोषु वृषभो वत्सानां जनयेत्शतम् । गोमिनामेव ते वत्सा मोघं स्कन्दितमार्षभम् ॥ ५० ॥

    If (one man’s) bull were to beget a hundred calves on another man’s cows, they would belong to the owner of the cows; in vain would the bull have spent his strength.
