Leviticus 25:55

Leviticus 25:55

For unto me the children of Israel [are] servants
And therefore not to be perpetual servants to men, as those who are bought and redeemed by the blood of Christ should not be, ( 1 Corinthians 7:23 ) ; The Targum of Jonathan is, servants to my law; see ( Romans 7:25 ) ; those that are redeemed by Christ are also servants to his Gospel, and obey from their heart the form and doctrine delivered to them; they [are] my servants, whom I brought forth out of the land of
Egypt:
where they were in cruel bondage, and made to serve with rigour, but now, being delivered from thence, were laid under obligation to serve the Lord; nor was it his will that others should rule over them with rigour, whether of their own nation or strangers, or that they should be bondmen and bondmaids, or perpetual servants to any: I [am] the Lord your God;
their covenant God, who had been kind to them, particularly in the instance mentioned, and would take care that they should not be ill used by others, and therefore ought to serve him readily and cheerfully.
