 15:16
15:14 Give him a severance gift from your flocks, from your threshing floor, and from your wine vat, so that he will have a share of all the things through which God your Lord has blessed you.
Ha'aneyk ta'anik lo mitsonecha umigornecha umikvecha asher berachecha Adonay Eloheycha titen-lo.
15:15 You will thus remember that you were a slave in Egypt and God your Lord liberated you. It is for this reason that I am commanding you today to do this.
Vezacharta ki eved hayita be'erets Mitsrayim vayifdecha Adonay Eloheycha al-ken anochi metsavecha et-hadavar hazeh hayom.
15:16 If [the slave] likes you and your family, and has it so good with you that he says, 'I do not want to leave you,'
Vehayah ki-yomar eleycha lo etse me'imach ki ahevcha ve'et-beytecha ki-tov lo imach.
