Good advice or bad?
technically good advice... for the time. As slavery was a common thing back then not beating them to death was actually a bit of good advice. Now if you say it's good advice to OWN slaves... not in today's society. But then we have matured a great deal.

Besides, You have to look in the New Testament for Christian rules, as many of them overwrite the existing rules. Kinda like how a new law can override the older law.
