“Jou storie oor eunuchs in Joodse koningshuise is gewoon ’n leuen”. = KdeK
Ons pro-bona prokureur vir God het sedert my laaste brief “ge-back pedel” op sy vorige insinuasie dat geen eunuchs in die Joodse koningshuise te vinde was nie. Met my tekste direk vanuit die Bybel aangehaal, is dit nou, ek kwoteer hom: “Die voorbeelde van eunuchs wat jy noem, is uitsonderings en is boonop dié van die berugte heks-koningin Isebel, vrou van die afgodsdienaar koning Agab en dié van die ewe afvallige Sedekia wat God se profeet, Jeremia, in ’n put laat gooi, het”. Nou erken hy daar was eunuchs in die Joodse koningshuise maar kastig nou net die slegte konings wat eunuchs aangehou het. HeHe. Die man dans rond op ‘n warm plaat!
Ek het geskryf: “Joodse slawe kon deur mede-Jode vir net sewe jare aangehou word, en daarna vrygelaat word. Non-Joodse slawe is nie anders as die omliggende volkere deur die Jode behandel nie.” Volgens hom, lieg ek weer eens en hy skryf: “Jy verdraai die slawerny kwessie omdat jy nie insig het in wat aangaan, nie.” Eerstens ek wonder hoeveel van ons lesers glo regtig ek het geen insig in wat in die Bybel aangaan nie, soos hy my wil verkwalik?
En tweedens, haal ek weer eens direk van die Bybel aan. Ons pro-bona prokureur van God! HeHe!
“If you buy a Hebrew slave, he is to serve for only six years. Set him free in the seventh year, and he will owe you nothing for his freedom. If he was single when he became your slave and then married afterward, only he will go free in the seventh year. But if he was married before he became a slave, then his wife will be freed with him. If his master gave him a wife while he was a slave, and they had sons or daughters, then the man will be free in the seventh year, but his wife and children will still belong to his master. But the slave may plainly declare, 'I love my master, my wife, and my children. I would rather not go free.' If he does this, his master must present him before God. Then his master must take him to the door and publicly pierce his ear with an awl. After that, the slave will belong to his master forever”. (Exodus 21:2-6 NLT)
“When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment”. (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)
“However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way”. (Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)
Nou vra ek met trane in my oë. Hoe kan ek bogenoemde tekse verdraai?! Bo en behalwe dit, dit was God se eie opdrag aan die Jode!!!!
