In the Torah, כרת cutting-off, and we find multiple forms in Rabbinic literature: חרם, נידוי, שמתא
Here are a few specific texts:
ANAKIN : Are you an angel?
PADME : What?
ANAKIN : An angel. I've heard the deep space pilots talk about them. They live on the Moons of Iego I thimk. They are the most beautiful creatures in the universe. They are good and kind, and so pretty they make even the most hardened spice pirate cry.
ANAKIN : You'll never reach the outskirts in time...sandstorms are very, very dangerous. Come with me. Hurry!
QUI-GON, JAR JAR, ARTOO, and PADME enter a small living space.
PADME : I can't believe there is still slavery in the galaxy. The Republic's anti-slavery laws...
SHMI : The Republic doesn't exist out here...we must survive on our own.
There is a lot about slavery in the Torah as well as Rabbinic literature; in Biblical times, it was widespread in the ancient Near East. By Rabbinic times, slavery was less widespread but still practiced. In post-Talmudic times, slavery was not happening much. Nevertheless, here is a section from Leviticus discussing slavery:
QUI-GON : The Force is unusally strong with him, that much is clear. Who was his father?
SHMI : There was no father, that I know of...I carried him, I gave him birth...I can't explain what happened. Can you help him?
WATTO : Don't get me wrongo. I have great faith in the boy. He's a credit
to your race, but Sebulba there is going to win, I think.
QUI-GON : Why?
WATTO : He always wins. (laughs) I'm betting heavily on Sebulba.
QUI-GON : I'll take that bet.
WATTO : (suddenly stops laughing) What??!! What do you mean?
QUI-GON : I'll wager my new racing pod against...say...the boy and his
WATTO : A Pod for slaves. I don't think so...well, perhaps. Just one...the
mother, maybe...the boy isn't for sale.
QUI-GON : Whenever you gamble, my friend, eventually you'll lose.
Concentrate on the Moment
QUI-GON : Are you all set, Annie? (Anakin nods) Remember, concentrate on the moment. Feel. Don't think. Trust your instincts. (he smiles) May the Force be with you.
YODA: Fear is the path to the dark side... fear leads to anger... anger leads to hate.. hate leads to suffering.
