Exodus 21:1-11 NRS

1 These are the ordinances that you shall set before them:
2 When you buy a male Hebrew slave, he shall serve six years, but in the seventh he shall go out a free person, without debt.
3 If he comes in single, he shall go out single; if he comes in married, then his wife shall go out with him.
4 If his master gives him a wife and she bears him sons or daughters, the wife and her children shall be her master's and he shall go out alone.
5 But if the slave declares, "I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out a free person,"
6 then his master shall bring him before God. a He shall be brought to the door or the doorpost; and his master shall pierce his ear with an awl; and he shall serve him for life.
