Sirach 7:21
Cherish household servants who are intelligent; don’t deprive them of freedom.
Depart not from a wise and good wife, whom thou hast gotten in the fear of the Lord: for the grace of her modesty is above gold.
Show the same love to wise servants that you would show to yourself, and let them have their freedom.
Love wise servants as yourself; do not refuse them freedom.
Let your soul love intelligent slaves; do not withhold from them their freedom.
Let your soul love intelligent slaves; do not withhold from them their freedom.
Let your soul love intelligent slaves; do not withhold from them their freedom.
Let your soul love intelligent slaves; do not withhold from them their freedom.
Let your soul love an intelligent servant; do not withhold from him his freedom.
Let your soul love an intelligent servant; do not withhold from him his freedom.
A witty, (or a witting, or a knowing) servant be dearworthy to thee as thy (own) soul; defraud thou not him of freedom, neither forsake thou him (when) needy. [A well feeling servant be to thee loved as thy soul; beguile thou not him from freedom, nor forsake thou him helpless.]
