The 239th mitzvah is that we are commanded regarding [punishing] a thief — whether to collect two, four times, or five times the amount stolen1; to kill him should he break in [to the person's property];2 or to sell him.3 The general principle is that the mitzvah is to punish a thief according to the Torah's directions.

All the details of this mitzvah are explained in the 7th chapter of tractate Bava Kama, the 8th chapter of Sanhedrin, the 3rd chapter of Bava Metzia, and a few passages in Ketubot,4 Kiddushin,5 and Shavuot.6

The greeting for the days leading up to Yom Kippur, as well as Yom Kippur itself, is Gmar Chatimah Tovah (גמר חתימה טובה) May your sealing (in the book of Life) be completed for good!, or simply Chatimah Tovah. Wishing you all a Chatimah Tovah!

I am sure that this will need some tweaking from Rabbi before next year, but for those who do not have a Machzor for this Yom Kippur, I hope this helps.

The 237th mitzvah is that we are commanded to follow the laws regarding [damage caused by] an ox.

The source of this commandment is G‑d's statement1 (exalted be He), "If an ox gores [a man or woman...]", and the verse,2 "If one person's ox injures the ox of another person...."

The details of this mitzvah are explained in the first six chapters of tractate Bava Kama.

The details of this mitzvah are explained in the 3rd and 5th chapters of tractate Bava Kama.
