Is this an allegory or a metaphor?<quoted text>
You are really, really out of the rational area of mental processes.
You have no perspective on reality outside that you created for yourself. And try to share with others.
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)
