If the 2 men are master and eved. Technically everything belonging to the eved belongs to the master.
Return the money to the master, you've returned it to the proper owner.

This is interesting.
My question to you is, following your logic, how can it be that the thief could steal from the eved if the eved never owned anything?

Maybe he wasn't an eved when it was stolen?

I like it. Very creative.
The answer I was looking for is different but follows a similar logic.

Correct!
Stole from either the man or son. If the father passed away, the thief can return what he stole to the son, as the son inherited that which was stolen as well.

Here is this week's riddle:

To four fathers who were tzaddikim, my lineage I can trace,
And I'm included in the eight special people's space.
Along other tzaddikim I did showcase,
But the batei k'nesios was my place.
In Tanach, many people share my name,
Some as plain, some as leviim, and some as kohanim it does claim.
Who am I?


Anyone have any thoughts on this?? I was up at night wracking my brain on this but so far I'm stumped.

My wild guess is Yaakov /Yisroel solely based on the special place of 8 (me'aras hamachpelah), that he was a yoshev ohalim, and it says "plain" instead Yisroel when listing kohanim and levi'im

I was thinking about Yaakov but, he only has 3 righteous fathers. Terach was a Rasha.
Also, do we know of any kohanim or leviim named Yaakov or Yisroel?

My thought was Shem.
He had four righteous fathers: Chanoch, Mesushelach, Lemach and Noach- they were all tzaddikim.
He was part of the 8 people who were saved from the Mabul.
We have yeshivas Shem v'Ever, so he obviously was in the batei kenisios (though I would say a more correct phrase would have been batei medreshos.)
But the last part doesn't work. I don't think anyone else in Tanach had his name. Though we do know that Malki Tzedek (AKA Shem) was a Cohen. What

Palti ben Layish. Because he was forced to marry the daughter of Shaul who had been promised to Dovid.
