Slaves, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ. (Eph 6:5 NASB)


Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them, and not to steal from them … (Titus 2:9 NIV)


Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. You can give them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly. (Lev 25:44-46 NIV)


Anyone who beats their male or female slave with a rod must be punished if the slave dies, but they are not to be punished if the slave recovers after a day or two, since the slave is their property. (Ex 21:20-21 NIV)
