21:2 If you buy a Hebrew servant, he shall serve six years and in the seventh he shall go out free without paying anything.

21:4 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.
21:5 But if the servant shall plainly say, `I love my master, my wife, and my children. I will not go out free;`
21:7 If a man sells his daughter to be a maid-servant, she shall not go out as the men-servants do.
21:8 If she doesn`t please her master, who has married her to himself, then he shall let her be redeemed. He shall have no right to sell her to a foreign people, seeing he has dealt deceitfully with her.
21:9 If he marries her to his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.
21:12 One who strikes a man so that he dies shall surely be put to death,
21:14 If a man schemes and comes presumptuously on his neighbor to kill him, you shall take him from my altar, that he may die.
21:15 Anyone who attacks his father or his mother shall be surely put to death.
21:16 Anyone who kidnaps someone and sells him, or if he is found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.
21:17 Anyone who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death.
21:19 if he rises again and walks around with his staff, then he who struck him shall be cleared: only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall provide for his healing until he is thoroughly healed.
21:25 burning for burning, wound for wound, and bruise for bruise.
21:27 If he strikes out his man-servant`s tooth, or his maid-servant`s tooth, he shall let him go free for his tooth`s sake.
21:28 If a bull gores a man or a woman to death, the bull shall surely be stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the bull shall not be held responsible.
21:29 But if the bull had a habit of goring in the past, and it has been testified to its owner, and he has not kept it in, but it has killed a man or a woman, the bull shall be stoned, and its owner shall also be put to death.
21:30 If a ransom is laid on him, then he shall give for the redemption of his life whatever is laid on him.
21:31 Whether it has gored a son or has gored a daughter, according to this judgment it shall be done to him.
21:32 If the bull gores a man-servant or a maid-servant, thirty shekels of silver shall be given to their master, and the ox shall be stoned.
21:34 the owner of the pit shall make it good. He shall give money to its owner, and the dead animal shall be his.
21:35 If one man`s bull injures another`s, so that it dies, then they shall sell the live bull, and divide its price; and they shall also divide the dead animal.
21:36 Or if it is known that the bull was in the habit of goring in the past, and its owner has not kept it in, he shall surely pay bull for bull, and the dead animal shall be his own.
