Exodus 21:20-21 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
20 When someone strikes his male or female slave with a rod so that the slave dies under his hand, the act shall certainly be avenged. 21 If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property.
