One or two of my posts might seem controversial. For the record, I believe in GOD.
1. Why is killing a slave a capital crime? Exodus 21:12, 20
2. Why is an injured slave set free? Exodus 21:26-27
3. Why can a slave escape to safety with no penalty? Deuteronomy 23:15-16
4. Why was the Bible's laws for slavery so radically different than that of the heathen's Code of Hammurabi? E.g. Genesis 30:3, which was not a law given at Sinai, and Hammurabi's code §146
5. Why was a female slave allowed to leave if she didn't want to get married, and so displeased her master? Exodus 21:8
6. Why was a female slave required to be treated like a daughter if she married a son? Exodus 21:9
7. Why is love the commandment for both the Hebrew and the stranger? Leviticus 19:18 Deuteronomy 10:19
Wouldn't a slave master be very foolish to risk death, or to lose his slave and his money (for he is his money Exodus 21:21)?11 AnswersReligion & Spirituality5 months ago
It is very easy to desire "a beautiful woman", and to take her for a wife, especially if she appears agreeable.
Unfortunately, it is also very easy to take advantage of such a woman, especially if she is a foreigners who has no protection under the law.
We need to know what the man s intentions are and / or prevent any abuse on his part.
1. "shave her head, and pare her nails" (v 12) - there goes her beauty.
2. "shall remain in thine house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month" (v 13) - there goes the agree-ability.
Now the man s motives can be made manifest, and he can not "go unto her" until he is ready to take her for wife.
But if the man does not want her, she is free to go, being humbled (v 12), she is still free to marry.
