Leviticus 25:39-46

UKJV(i) 39 And if your brother that dwells by you be becoming poor, and be sold unto you; you shall not compel him to serve as a bondservant: 40 But as an hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with you, and shall serve you unto the year of jubile. 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, which I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold as bondmen. 43 You shall not rule over him with rigour; but shall fear your God. 44 Both your bondmen, and your bondmaids, which you shall have, shall be of the heathen that are round about you; of them shall all of you buy bondmen and bondmaids. 45 Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall all of you buy, and of their families that are with you, which they brings forth in your land: and they shall be your possession. 46 And all of you shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, all of you shall not rule one over another with rigour.
