“If a man sells his daughter as a servant, she is not to go free as male servants do.
If she does not please the master who has selected her for himself, he must let her be redeemed. He has no right to sell her to foreigners, because he has broken faith with her.
If he selects her for his son, he must grant her the rights of a daughter.

If he does not provide her with these three things, she is to go free, without any payment of money.

“Anyone who attacks their father or mother is to be put to death.
