Exodus 21

1  Now these are the judgments which thou shalt set before them.

2  If thou buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.

3  If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were married, then his wife shall go out with him.

4  If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself.

5  And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free:

6  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 awl; and he shall serve him for ever.

7  And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go out as the menservants do.

8  If she please not her master, who hath betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a strange nation he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her.

9  And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.

10  If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.
