Concerning a maid's vow
30:1 And Moses spake unto the chiefs of the tribes concerning the children of Israel, saying,
This [is] the thing which the LORD has commanded.
30:2 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind
his soul with a bond ; he shall not break his word, he shall do
according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.
30:3 If a woman also vow a vow unto the LORD, and bind herself by
a bond, [being] in her father's house in her youth ;
30:4 And her father hear her vow, and her bond by which she has
bound her soul, and her father shall hold his peace at her then
all her vows shall stand, and every bond by which she has bound
her soul shall stand.
30:5 But if her father disallow her in the day that he hear ;
not any of her vows, or of her bonds by which she has bound her
soul, shall stand and the LORD shall forgive her, because her
father disallowed her.
30:6 And if she had at all an husband, when she vowed, or uttered
ought out of her lips, by which she bound her soul ;
30:7 And her husband heard [it,] and held his peace at her in the
day that he heard [it] then her vows shall stand, and her bonds
by which she bound her soul shall stand.
30:8 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, by which she bound her soul, of none
effect and the LORD shall forgive her.
Vow of a widow
30:9 But every vow of a widow, and of her that is divorced,
by which they have bound their souls, shall stand against her.
30:10 And if she vowed in her husband's house, or bound her soul
by a bond with an oath ;
30:11 And her husband heard [it], and held his peace at her,
[and] disallowed her not then all her vows shall stand, and every
bond by which she bound her soul shall stand.
30:12 But if her husband has utterly made them void on the day
he heard [them; then] what ever proceeded out of her lips
concerning her vows, or concerning the bond of her soul, shall
not stand her husband has made them void ; and the LORD shall
30:13 Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the soul, her
husband may establish it, or her husband may make it void.
30:14 But if her husband altogether hold his peace at her from
day to day ; then he establisheth all her vows, or all her bonds,
which [are] upon her he comfirms them, because he held his
peace at her in the day that he heard [them].
30:15 But if he shall any ways make them void after that he has
heard [them]; then he shall bear her iniquity.
30:16 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.
