Vayikra: Chapter 36

"That he shall restore that which he took violently away"


Rabbi Shimon says that someone who steals must pay reparation four or five times because he feared the humans from whom he stole more than he feared God. On the other hand, someone who steals with violence must pay only by restoring what he took, because he feared men and God equally. The person who takes "violently away" is sinning with both body and soul, and when he corrects his actions the flow of the abundance of above will be restored.
