[b-hebrew] The logic of the JUSSIVE?

Hello, I have a question relating to the use of the JUSSIVE form;  it all
appeared perfectly reasonable in theory until I read LEV 19:11 and EX
20:15!!

Those 2 liitle nagging words (tignov and tignovu, steal), opposing one
another as if to declare some hidden little semantic agenda. The one in
jussive and the other as an expected imperfect command.

Have I missed something or can someone offer an explanation please.

Thanks - Chris Watts.
