Roles, In A
Servant family roles The Lord gave Moses the following laws for his people: If you buy a Hebrew slave, he must remain your slave for six years. But in the seventh year you must set him free, without cost to him.
If he was single at the time you bought him, he alone must be set free. But if he was married at the time, both he and his wife must be given their freedom. If you give him a wife, and they have children, only the man himself must be set free; his wife and children remain the property of his owner.

If the man later marries another woman, he must continue to provide food and clothing for the one he bought and to treat her as a wife. If he fails to do any of these things, she must be given her freedom without cost. Exodus 21:1-11
