Hi Doug If a man or woman was sold to a another hebrew within the tribe and served three years and stayed seven then the law was that he or she could go free but if that servant was loved and respected by the owner and wanted to be there permanently they were given the mark of a bondservant or slave. They were marked out with an aul through the ear as being owned but not by force. The marked person could leave anytime they wanted but why would because you were loved and all needs were met by your owner. In the epistles the Apostle paul mentions in Philippians 3:14 press toward the mark of the High calling of God in Christ Jesus. You sold out to the one who loves you and takes care of your every need, Paul was sold out he trusted that God in Christ Jesus would take care of every need in all situations and conditions.

Brother Doug,

The referenced scripture regards the piercing of the ear of a Hebrew slave that has decided to remain with their master after serving 6 years of service.

Additional scripture:

Exodus 21:1-6

1Now these are the judgments which thou shalt set before them. 2If thou buy an Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing. 3If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were married, then his wife shall go out with him. 4If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself. 5And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free: 6Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever.

They lived a very different lifestyle than we do today - thank God!

God Bless
