And Moses spake17 unto the heads of the tribes concerning the children of Israel, saying,2 This [is] the thing which the LORD hath commanded.14
If a man vow4 a vow unto the LORD, or swear9 an oath to bind2 his soul with a bond; he shall not break55 his word, he shall do4 according to all that proceedeth6 out of his mouth.
If a woman also vow4 a vow unto the LORD, and bind1 herself by a bond, [being] in her father's house in her youth;
And her father hear1 her vow, and her bond wherewith she hath bound1 her soul, and her father shall hold his peace52 at her: then all her vows shall stand,1 and every bond wherewith she hath bound1 her soul shall stand.4
But if her father disallow52 her in the day that he heareth;2 not any of her vows, or of her bonds wherewith she hath bound1 her soul, shall stand:4 and the LORD shall forgive4 her, because her father disallowed52 her.
And if she had at all an husband, when she vowed, or uttered ought out of her lips, wherewith she bound1 her soul;
And her husband heard1 [it,] and held his peace52 at her in the day that he heard2 [it]: then her vows shall stand,1 and her bonds wherewith she bound1 her soul shall stand.4
But if her husband disallowed55 her on the day that he heard2 [it]; then he shall make her vow which she vowed, and that which she uttered with her lips, wherewith she bound1 her soul, of none effect:52 and the LORD shall forgive4 her.
But every vow of a widow, and of her that is divorced,7 wherewith they have bound1 their souls, shall stand4 against her.
And if she vowed1 in her husband's house, or bound1 her soul by a bond with an oath;
And her husband heard1 [it], and held his peace52 at her, [and] disallowed52 her not: then all her vows shall stand,1 and every bond wherewith she bound1 her soul shall stand.4
But if her husband hath utterly53 made them void55 on the day he heard2 [them; then] whatsoever proceeded out of her lips concerning her vows, or concerning the bond of her soul, shall not stand:4 her husband hath made them void;52 and the LORD shall forgive4 her.
Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict15 the soul, her husband may establish55 it, or her husband may make it void.55
But if her husband altogether53 hold his peace55 at her from day to day; then he establisheth52 all her vows, or all her bonds, which [are] upon her: he confirmeth52 them, because he held his peace52 at her in the day that he heard2 [them].
But if he shall any ways53 make them void55 after that he hath heard2 [them]; then he shall bear1 her iniquity.
These [are] the statutes, which the LORD commanded14 Moses, between a man and his wife, between the father and his daughter, [being yet] in her youth in her father's house.
