Ye are the one from the other: Therefore marry them with the consent of their masters; and give them their dower according to justice; [such as are] modest, not guilty of whoredom, nor entertaining lovers. And when they are married, if they be guilty of adultery, they shall suffer half the punishment which [is appointed] for the free women. This is [allowed] unto him among you, who feareth to sin [by marrying free women]; but if ye abstain [from marrying slaves, it will be] better for you; God is gracious and merciful.

This hath he injoined you that ye may understand.
