81 The Penalties For Wounding Or Striking A Person Depend Upon The

severity of the injury; for each degree the Lord of Judgement hath

prescribed a certain indemnity. 56

While Baha'u'llah specified that the extent of the penalty depends upon

the severity of the injury, there is no record of His having set out the

details of the size of the indemnity with regard to each degree of

offence. The responsibility to determine these devolves upon the Universal

House of Justice.
