In the Holy Bible - in Exodus 21: 7-11 consider this passage which translates as follows: "when a man sells?

his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, (how considerate!), since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave... show more his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, (how considerate!), since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son he must no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife (lucky girl). If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment." What does this passage say about the suitability of the Bible as a moral guide? For ye shall know the truth. The truth shall set you free.
