39 H251 And if thy brother H4134 that dwelleth by thee be waxen poor [H8799] H4376 , and be sold [H8738] H5647 unto thee; thou shalt not compel [H8799] H5656 him to serve H5650 as a bondservant:
40 H7916 But as an hired servant H8453 , and as a sojourner H5647 , he shall be with thee, and shall serve [H8799] H8141 thee unto the year H3104 of jubile:
41 H3318 And then shall he depart [H8804] H1121 from thee, both he and his children H7725 with him, and shall return [H8804] H4940 unto his own family H272 , and unto the possession H1 of his fathers H7725 shall he return [H8799] .
42 H5650 For they are my servants H3318 , which I brought forth [H8689] H776 out of the land H4714 of Egypt H4376 : they shall not be sold [H8735] H4466 as H5650 bondmen.
43 H7287 Thou shalt not rule [H8799] H6531 over him with rigour H3372 ; but shalt fear [H8804] H430 thy God.
44 H5650 Both thy bondmen H519 , and thy bondmaids H1471 , which thou shalt have, shall be of the heathen H5439 that are round about H7069 you; of them shall ye buy [H8799] H5650 bondmen H519 and bondmaids.
45 H1121 Moreover of the children H8453 of the strangers H1481 that do sojourn [H8802] H7069 among you, of them shall ye buy [H8799] H4940 , and of their families H3205 that are with you, which they begat [H8689] H776 in your land H272 : and they shall be your possession.
46 H5157 And ye shall take them as an inheritance [H8694] H1121 for your children H310 after H3423 you, to inherit [H8800] H272 them for a possession H5647 ; they shall be your bondmen [H8799] H5769 for ever H251 : but over your brethren H1121 the children H3478 of Israel H7287 , ye shall not rule [H8799] H376 one H251 over another H6531 with rigour.
