2 “If you buy a Hebrew servant, he shall serve six years and in the seventh he shall go out free without paying anything.
4 If his master gives him a wife and she bears him sons or daughters, the wife and her children shall be her master’s, and he shall go out by himself. 5 But if the servant shall plainly say, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children. I will not go out free;’
