I think not - my wife's reaction would likely resemble that of a wookiee losing at chess.

Fear not! That's only the King James translation. A direct modern translation from the Hebrew texts reads, "You can have [other, different]*
male or female slaves. These are the male and female slaves that you buy from the nations around you. You can also buy [them, such] from the resident aliens who live among you, and from their families that are born in your land. (Leviticus 25:44 - 45) *
- Leviticus 25:39 - 43 refer to fair treatment of non-aliens indentured for debt.
