The Bible

Both thy bondsmen, and thy bondsmaids, which thou shalt have, shall be of the heathen that are round about you’ of them shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids.

Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you, which they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession.

And ye shall take tem as an inheritance for your children after you, to inheret them for a possession; they shall be your bondsmen forever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigour.

– Leviticus 25:44-46
