Thank you brother. An atheist has actually challenged me to explain this to him. Exodus 21:20-21 KJV. In verse 21-is the master at the discretion of the judges (magistrates), upon consideration of circumstances. I know it doesn't say that in this verse, so I can I prove it to the atheist. Because he feels the master got away with killing the slave even if he survives a day or two. Thank you, God is great !
