|Numbers 30 |
1 And Moses spoke to the heads of the tribes concerning the children of Israel, saying, "This is the what the LORD has commanded:
2 If a man makes a vow to the LORD, or swears an oath to bind his soul with a pledge, he shall not break his word; he shall do everything he has promised out of his mouth.
3 Also if a woman makes a vow to the LORD, and binds herself with a pledge, being in her father's house in her youth;
4 And her father hear her vow, and her pledge with which she has bound her soul, and her father shall not speak against her; then all her vows shall stand, and every pledge with which she has bound her soul shall stand.
5 But if her father forbids her when he hears her attempts, none of her vows or her pledges with which she has bound her soul shall stand; and the LORD shall forgive her because her father disallowed her.
6 And if she had a husband, when she vowed, or uttered something out of her lips, with which she bound her soul;
7 And her husband heard it, and remained silent at her in the day that he heard it, then her vows shall stand, and her pledges with which she bound her soul shall stand.
8 But if her husband disallowed her on the day that he heard it, then he shall make her vow which she vowed, and that which she uttered with her lips, with which she bound her soul, to be invalid; and the LORD shall forgive her.
9 But every vow of a widow or divorcee, with which they have bound their souls, shall stand against her.
10 And if she vowed in her husband's house, or bound her soul by a pledge with an oath;
11 And her husband heard it, and he remained silent, and did not forbid her: then all her vows shall stand, and every pledge with which she bound her soul shall stand.
12 But if her husband has utterly made them void on the day he heard them; then whatever proceeded out of her lips concerning her vows, or concerning the pledge of her soul, shall not stand; her husband has made them void, and the LORD shall forgive her.
13 Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the soul, her husband may establish it, or her husband may make it void.
14 But if her husband altogether remains silent at her from day to day; then he establishs all her vows, or all her pledges, that are upon her; he confirms them because he held remainded silent in the day that he heard them.
15 But if he shall in any way make them void after he has heard them; then he shall bear her iniquity."
16 These are the statutes, which the LORD commanded Moses, between a man and his wife, between the father and his daughter, being yet in her youth in her father's house.
