These are the judgments which thou shalt set before them.
If thou buy a Hebrew servant, six years shall he serve thee; in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.
With what raiment he came in, with the like let him go out: if having a wife, his wife also shall go out with him.
But if his master gave him a wife, and she hath borne sons and daughters; the woman and her children shall be her master’s: but he himself shall go out with his raiment.
And if the servant shall say: I love my master and my wife and children, I will not go out free:
His master shall bring him to the gods, and he shall be set to the door and the posts, and he shall bore his ear through with an awl: and he shall be his servant for ever.
