259 - EMPLOYING A HEBREW BONDMAN ON UNNECESSARY WORK


Leviticus 25:43 --You shall not rule over him with rigor, but you shall fear your God.”

Although the employment of a Canaanite bondman “with rigor” is legally permitted, Jewish standards of kindness and humanity never permitted a man to work his bondmen “with rigor”.*

* Kinyan, Hilchoth Abadim IX, 8. See also Note to Pos. Comm. 235, Vol. I, pp. 246ff
