If his master has given him a wi fe, and she has born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself. And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go free: Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever. - Exodus 21:2-6 Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's... - Matthew 22-21 For everyone that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death. - Leviticus 20:9 Both thy bondsmen, and thy bondsmaids, which thou shall have, shall be of the heathen that are round about you; of them shall ye buy bondsmen and bondsmaids.
