New Defender's Study Bible Notes

21:7 daughter...maidservant. Exodus 21:1-6 describes the treatment to be accorded a manservant sold into servitude by his father. Exodus 21:7-11 does the same for a daughter. She could be married to her master, or to his son, or purchased back by her family, or supported, or else set free.
