15 Bible Verses about Slavery - ESV

English Standard Version (ESV)
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin.”

“Is not this the fast that I choose:
to loose the bonds of wickedness,
to undo the straps of the yoke,
to let the oppressed go free,
and to break every yoke?”
You shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God brought you out from there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore the Lord your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.
The rich rules over the poor,
and the borrower is the slave of the lender.
The hand of the diligent will rule,
while the slothful will be put to forced labor.

because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed.
For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin.
But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life.
Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise.
It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave.
