Jeremiah 34:8-10

8-10God delivered a Message to Jeremiah after King Zedekiah made a covenant with the people of Jerusalem to decree freedom to the slaves who were Hebrews, both men and women. The covenant stipulated that no one in Judah would own a fellow Jew as a slave. All the leaders and people who had signed the covenant set free the slaves, men and women alike.

11But a little while later, they reneged on the covenant, broke their promise and forced their former slaves to become slaves again.
