Dumb Shit the Bible Says

"And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished."

"Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money."

— Exodus 21:20-21

So basically, it's totally fine if you beat your maid with a rod for a few days, just as long as the ungrateful bitch doesn't up and die on you.
