The logistics of buying and selling slaves

from Bo Burnham – Rant Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The Bible’s explanation of the logistics of buying and selling slaves appears right after the “Verse 45” where God condones slavery that Bo has been satirically hyper-analyzing in the last 9 lines.

Bo is pointing out that the metaphorical interpretation of this passage is a ridiculous stretch of the imagination, and is completely implausible. The fact that God explicitly explains how to buy and sell slaves definitively establishes that the Bible condones literal slavery.
