Here is one of the things the bible teaches about slavery and it is pretty straightforward and unambiguous.

Exodus 21: 20-21, "When a man strikes his slave, male or female, with a rod and the slave dies under his hand, he shall be avenged. 21 But if the slave survives a day or two, he is not to be avenged, for the slave is his money."

Clearly states that it is acceptable to beat your slave as long as he/she does not die within a day or two. If you believe that is moral then I question your ethics. If you believe it is immoral then I question your belief in the bible as a moral guide.


Clearly you took something out of context. I’ve suggested that you look at commentaries to help you clear up the confusion you have with this.

The following link does a good job of clearing this up:
