Thomson(i) 1 Moreover Moses spoke to the chiefs of the tribes of the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the Lord hath commanded. 2 If any man vow a vow to the Lord, or swear an oath, or bind himself with a solemn promise concerning his soul, he shall not break his word. Whatever hath proceeded from his mouth he shall do. 3 And if a woman vow to the Lord, or bind herself with a solemn promise, in her father's house, in her youth; 4 and her father hear her vows, and her promises with which she hath bound her soul, and hold his peace at her; all her vows, and all the promises with which she bound her soul, shall stand. 5 They shall be binding on her. But if her father expressly disapprove on the day he heareth her vows and the promises, with which she hath bound her soul, they shall not stand. And the Lord will acquit her because her father hath disallowed her. 6 And if she be married, and vows be upon her; according to the opening of her lips; with what promises soever she may have bound her soul, 7 if her husband shall hear, and hold his peace at her on the day when he heareth, so shall all her vows stand, and the promises shall stand with which she hath bound her soul. 8 But if her husband expressly disallow her on the day when he shall hear, none of her vows, and none of the obligations with which she hath bound her soul, shall be binding, because her husband disallowed her. And the Lord will acquit her. 9 But the vows of a widow, or of one divorced; whatever vows she may have made to bind her soul, shall stand against her. 10 And if her vow, or the obligation with which she bound her soul with an oath, be made in her husband's house; 11 and her husband shall hear, and hold his peace at her, and not disallow her; all her vows and all her promises with which she hath bound her soul shall stand against her. 12 But if her husband on the day when he heareth, actually disannul all that may have proceeded out of her lips, of what nature soever her vows may be, or the obligations with which she bound her soul, they shall not be binding on her. Her husband hath made them void, and the Lord will acquit her. 13 Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict her soul, her husband may establish, or make void. 14 And if lie hold his peace at her, day after day, he shall establish upon her all her vows, and confirm the obligations upon her, because he held his peace at her on the day he heard them. 15 And if her husband disannul them after the day when he heard, he shall bear the sin of this. 16 These are the judgments which the Lord gave in charge to Moses, between a husband and wife, and between a father and a daughter in her youth, in her father's house.
