Leviticus 25:39-46

KJ2000(i) 39 And if your brother that dwells by you becomes poor, and is sold unto you; you shall not compel him to serve as a slave: 40 But as a hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with you, and shall serve you until the year of jubilee: 41 And then shall he depart from you, both he and his children with him, and shall return unto his own family, and unto the possession of his fathers shall he return. 42 For they are my servants, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold as slaves. 43 You shall not rule over him with harshness; but shall fear your God. 44 Both your male and female slaves, whom you shall have, shall be of the nations that are round about you; of them shall you buy male and female slaves. 45 Also of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall you buy, and of their families that are with you, whom they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession. 46 And you shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your slaves forever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, you shall not rule one over another with harshness.
