Now these are the rights which thou shalt set before them.
If thou should buy a Hebrew slave, he shall serve six years; and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.
If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself; if he was married, then his wife shall go out with him.
If his master has given him a wife, and she has born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master’s, and he shall go out by himself.
And if the slave shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free.
Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him forever.
And if a man should sell his daughter to be a maidslave, she shall not go out as the menslaves do.
If she pleases not her master, who therefore took her not unto himself to wife, then it is permitted that she be ransomed; and he may not sell her unto a strange nation when he rejects her.
