Leviticus 25:39-46

LITV(i) 39 And when your brother becomes poor with you, and he has been sold to you, you shall not lay on him the service of a slave. 40 He shall be with you as a hireling, as a tenant he shall be with you; he shall serve with you until the year of jubilee; 41 then he shall go out from you, he and his sons with him, and shall return to his family; he shall even return to the possession of his father. 42 For they are My servants, whom I have brought out from the land of Egypt; they shall not be sold with the sale of a slave. 43 You shall not rule over him with severity, and you shall fear your God. 44 And your male slave and your female slave whom you have shall be from the nations who are all around you, you shall buy them as male slave or female slave; 45 and also you may buy of the sons of the tenants who are sojourning with you, and of their families who are with you, which they have fathered in your land. And they shall be a possession to you. 46 And you shall take them for inheritance to your sons after you, to hold for a possession; you may lay service on them forever. But on your brothers, the sons of Israel, one over another, you shall not rule over him with severity.
