Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
'You may even bequeath them to your sons after you, to receive as a possession; you can use them as permanent slaves. But in respect to your countrymen, the sons of Israel, you shall not rule with severity over one another.

King James Bible
And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigour.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
You may leave them to your sons after you to inherit as property; you can make them slaves for life. But concerning your brothers, the Israelites, you must not rule over one another harshly."
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Leviticus 25:39 And if your brother that dwells by you be waxen poor, and be sold …

ye shall not rule

Leviticus 25:43 You shall not rule over him with rigor; but shall fear your God.
