Numbers 30

CHAPTER 30

Ordinances Regarding Vows

And Moses spoke to the rulers of the tribes of the sons of Israel, saying, This is the saying which the  lord ordered. A man, a man who ever should vow a vow to the  lord, or should swear by an oath, or should confirm a set of limits upon his life, he shall not profane his word; all as many things as should come forth from out of his mouth he shall do. And if [2should vow 1a woman] a vow to the  lord, or confirm a set of limits in the house of her father in her youth; and [2should hear 1her father] her vows, and her sets of limits which she confirmed on her life, and [3should remain silent 1her 2father], then shall stand all the matters of her vows, and all the sets of limits which she confirmed on her life she shall abide by. But if in shaking his head in dissent [2should dissent 1her father] in which ever day he should hear her vows, and her sets of limits which she confirmed on her life, then they shall not stand; and the  lord shall clear her for [2shook his head in dissent 1her father]. But if in coming to pass she should become a man's wife, and her vows be upon her, according to the distinction from her lips as many things as she confirmed on her life; and [2should hear 1her husband], and should remain silent concerning her in which ever day he should hear, then thus shall stand all her vows; and her sets of limits which she confirmed on her life shall stand. But if in shaking his head in dissent [2should dissent 1her husband] in which ever day he should hear all her vows, and her sets of limits which she confirmed on her life, they shall not abide, for her husband shook his head in dissent concerning her, and the  lord shall clear her. And a vow of a widow, and a woman being cast out, as many things as she should make a vow on her life, shall abide to her. 10 But if in the house of her husband her vow be, or the set of limits on her life with an oath, 11 and [2should hear 1her husband], and remain silent concerning her, and should not shake his head in dissent concerning her, then shall stand all her vows; and all her sets of limits which she confirmed on her life shall stand concerning her. 12 But if in removing [2should remove them 1her husband], in which ever day he should hear, all as many things as should come forth from out of her lips concerning her vows, and concerning the sets of limits on her life; it shall not remain to her, her husband removed them, and the  lord cleared her. 13 Every vow and every [2oath 1binding] to afflict her soul, her husband shall set for her, and her husband shall remove for her. 14 But if in keeping silent he should remain silent at her day by day, then [3shall stand 4to her 1all 2her vows]; and the sets of limits upon her shall stand to her, for he kept silent at her in the day in which he heard. 15 But if removing [2should remove them 1her husband] after the day which he heard them, then he shall take the sin unto himself. 16 These are the ordinances, as many as the  lord gave charge to Moses between a husband and between his wife, and between a father and daughter in youth in the house of her father.
