“If a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod and he dies
at his hand, he shall be punished.
You shall not rule over him with severity, but are to revere your God.
If your kinsman, a Hebrew man or woman, is sold to you, then he shall serve you six years, but in the seventh year you shall set him free.
At the end of seven years each of you shall set free his Hebrew brother who has been sold to you and has served you six years, you shall send him out free from you; but your forefathers did not obey Me or incline their ear to Me.
And masters, do the same things to them, and
give up threatening, knowing that both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.
Masters, grant to your slaves justice and fairness,
knowing that you too have a Master in heaven.
“If a man strikes the eye of his male or female slave, and destroys it, he shall let him go free on account of his eye.
You shall not pervert the justice due to your needy brother in his dispute.
You shall not oppress a hired servant who is poor and needy, whether he is one of your countrymen or one of your aliens who is in your land in your towns.
