2 “If you buy a Hebrew slave, he shall serve for six years; but on the seventh he shall go out as a free man without payment.3 If he comes [a]alone, he shall go out [b]alone; if he is the husband of a wife, then his wife shall go out with him.4 If his master gives him a wife, and she bears him sons or daughters, the wife and her children shall belong to her master, and he shall go out [c]alone.5 But if the slave plainly says, ‘I love my master, my wife and my children; I will not go out as a free man,’6 then his master shall bring him to [d]God, then he shall bring him to the door or the doorpost. And his master shall pierce his ear with an awl; and he shall serve him permanently.
