The 234th mitzvah is that we are commanded regarding the redemption of a female Jewish servant.

The source of this commandment is G‑d's statement1 (exalted be He), "[If he does not perform yi'ud] he must let her be redeemed."

This redemption has many conditions, details and laws associated with it. They are all set forth in tractate Kiddushin,2 where all the laws associated with a female Jewish servant are completely explained.

G‑d's statement,3 "If none of the above three are done to the girl, [then she shall be released without payment]," is explained by the Mechilta [that the three things are,] "either her master must marry her, or his son must marry her, or he must let her be redeemed."
