If thou buy a Hebrew bondman, six years shall he serve; and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.
If thy brother, a Hebrew man, or a Hebrew woman, have been sold unto thee, he shall serve thee six years, and in the seventh year thou shalt let him go free from thee.
At the end of seven years ye shall let go every man his brother, a Hebrew, who hath sold himself unto thee; when he hath served thee six years, thou shalt let him go free from thee. But your fathers hearkened not unto me, neither inclined their ear.
And if he do not these three things unto her, then shall she go out free without money.
And if a man strike the eye of his bondman or the eye of his handmaid, and it be marred, he shall let him go for his eye.
And if he knock out his bondman's tooth or his handmaid's tooth, he shall let him go free for his tooth.
And if he be not redeemed in this manner, then he shall go out in the year of jubilee, he and his children with him.
The word that came unto Jeremiah from Jehovah, after that king Zedekiah had made a covenant with all the people that were at Jerusalem, to proclaim liberty unto them: that every man should let his bondman, and every man his bondmaid, the Hebrew and the Hebrewess, go free, that none should exact service of them, that is, of a Jew his brother. And all the princes and all the people that had entered into the covenant obeyed, every man letting his bondman and every man his bondmaid go free, that none should exact service of them any more: they obeyed, and let them go.
And you, ye had this day turned, and had done right in my sight, in proclaiming liberty every man to his neighbour; and ye had made a covenant before me in the house which is called by my name:
The small and great are there, and the bondman freed from his master.
1 Corinthians 7:21
Hast thou been called being a bondman, let it not concern thee; but and if thou canst become free, use it rather.
But if the bondman shall say distinctly, I love my master, my wife, and my children, I will not go free;
And it shall be, if he say unto thee, I will not go away from thee, because he loveth thee and thy house, because he is well with thee, --
And if a man shall sell his daughter as a handmaid, she shall not go out as the bondmen go out.
