Hebrew Text[edit]

עבד עברי נקנה בכסף ובשטר,
וקונה את עצמו בשנים, וביובל, ובגרעון כסף.
יתרה עליו אמה עברייה,
שהיא קונה את עצמה בסימנין.
הנרצע, נקנה ברציעה,
וקונה את עצמו ביובל, ובמיתת אדון.

English Translation[edit]

A Hebrew slave is acquired through money or through a contract,
and acquires himself through years, through a Jubilee [year], or through prorated money.
A Hebrew maidservant has an advantage over him,
for she acquires herself through signs [of puberty].
[A slave] who is pierced is acquired through piercing,
and acquires himself through a Jubilee [year] or through the death of the master.
