25:53 [Such a slave] shall thus be the same as an employee hired on a yearly basis. If you are aware of it, [you may not let his master] dominate him so as to break his spirit
Kischir shanah beshanah yihyeh imo lo-yirdenu beferech le'eyneycha.
25:54 If [the slave] is not redeemed through any [of the above means], he and his children shall be freed in the jubilee year.
Ve'im-lo yiga'el be'eleh veyatsa bishnat hayovel hu uvanav imo.

If you are aware...
  (see Yad, Avadim 1:6; Sefer HaMitzvoth, Negative 260). Literally, 'before your eyes.'
