“If a man sells his daughter to be a female servant, she is not to go out as the male servants do. Bible

“she is not to go out as the male servants do.” Men who were sold into slavery were released after seven years. However, women who were sold into slavery were not released. It was the cultural norm that the master or someone in the master’s family would marry the girl (Exod. 21:8), and she would become a permanent part of that family.
