Numbers Chapter 30

Concerning a maid’s vow

30:1 AND Moses spake to 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 to 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 to 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 forgive her.
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 establish all her vows, or all her bonds, which [are] upon her he confirms 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.
