I suggest,

{5:43} And how do they arbitrate you while they have the Torah, in which is the ruling of God? Then they turn away after that. And those are no believers.

{5:44} Verily, We sent down the Torah, in which is guidance and light. Judging thereby are the prophets, who submitted [to God], for those who came back apologizing (the Jews), and [also judging thereby are] the rabbis and the scholars by what they were entrusted of the Book of God, and they were thereto witnesses. So do not fear the people but fear Me, and do not purchase for My verses a little price. And whoever has not judged by what God has sent down - then it is those who are the disbelievers.

{5:45} And We wrote upon them in it that the [execution of the] soul [of the murderer] is [the legal retribution] for the [murder of a] soul, the eye for the eye, the nose for the nose, the ear for the ear, the tooth for the tooth, and wounds [for wounds], a retribution. Then whoever has donated it (his right to retaliation), then it is an expiation for him. And whoever has not judged by what God has sent down - then it is those who are the wrongdoers.
