sold us
Genesis 31:41
"These twenty years I have been in your house; I served you fourteen years for your two daughters and six years for your flock, and you changed my wages ten times.
Genesis 29:15-20
Then Laban said to Jacob, "Because you are my relative, should you therefore serve me for nothing? Tell me, what shall your wages be?"
Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the older was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.
And Leah's eyes were weak, but Rachel was beautiful of form and face.
Now Jacob loved Rachel, so he said, "I will serve you seven years for your younger daughter Rachel."
Laban said, "It is better that I give her to you than to give her to another man; stay with me."
So Jacob served seven years for Rachel and they seemed to him but a few days because of his love for her.
Genesis 29:27-30
"Complete the week of this one, and we will give you the other also for the service which you shall serve with me for another seven years."
Jacob did so and completed her week, and he gave him his daughter Rachel as his wife.
Laban also gave his maid Bilhah to his daughter Rachel as her maid.
So [Jacob] went in to Rachel also, and indeed he loved Rachel more than Leah, and he served with Laban for another seven years.
Genesis 30:26
"Give [me] my wives and my children for whom I have served you, and let me depart; for you yourself know my service which I have rendered you."
Exodus 21:7-11
"If a man sells his daughter as a female slave, she is not to go free as the male slaves do.
"If she is displeasing in the eyes of her master who designated her for himself, then he shall let her be redeemed. He does not have authority to sell her to a foreign people because of his unfairness to her.
"If he designates her for his son, he shall deal with her according to the custom of daughters.
"If he takes to himself another woman, he may not reduce her food, her clothing, or her conjugal rights.
"If he will not do these three [things] for her, then she shall go out for nothing, without [payment of] money.
Nehemiah 5:8
I said to them, "We according to our ability have redeemed our Jewish brothers who were sold to the nations; now would you even sell your brothers that they may be sold to us?" Then they were silent and could not find a word [to say].
