Redemption of Bondmen

39And if your brother that dwells by you be waxen poor, and be sold to you; you shall not compel him to serve as a bondservant: 40But as an hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with you, and shall serve you to the year of jubilee. 41And then shall he depart from you, both he and his children with him, and shall return to his own family, and to the possession of his fathers shall he return. 42For they are my servants, which I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold as slaves. 43You shall not rule over him with rigor; but shall fear your God. 44Both your slaves, and your bondmaids, which you shall have, shall be of the heathen that are round about you; of them shall you buy slaves and bondmaids. 45Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall you buy, and of their families that are with you, which they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession. 46And you shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your slaves for ever: but over your brothers the children of Israel, you shall not rule one over another with rigor.
