Numbers 30
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And Moses speaks to the heads of the tribes of the sons of Israel, saying, “This [is] the thing which YHWH has commanded: 2When a man vows a vow to YHWH, or has sworn an oath to bind a bond on his soul, he does not defile his word; he does according to all that is going out from his mouth.

3And when a woman vows a vow to YHWH, and has bound a bond in the house of her father in her youth, 4and her father has heard her vow and her bond which she has bound on her soul, and her father has kept silent to her, then all her vows have been established, and every bond which she has bound on her soul is established. 5And if her father has disallowed her in the day of his hearing, none of her vows and her bonds which she has bound on her soul are established, and YHWH is propitious to her, for her father has disallowed her.

6And if she is having a husband, and her vows [are] on her, or a wrongful utterance [on] her lips which she has bound on her soul, 7and her husband has heard, and in the day of his hearing he has kept silent to her, then her vows have been established, and her bonds which she has bound on her soul are established. 8And if in the day of her husband’s hearing he disallows her, then he has broken her vow which [is] on her, and the wrongful utterance of her lips which she has bound on her soul, and YHWH is propitious to her.

9As for the vow of a widow or cast-out woman, all that she has bound on her soul is established on her. 10And if she has vowed [in] the house of her husband, or has bound a bond on her soul with an oath, 11and her husband has heard, and has kept silent to her—he has not disallowed her—then all her vows have been established, and every bond which she has bound on her soul is established. 12And if her husband certainly breaks them in the day of his hearing, none of the outgoing of her lips concerning her vows, or concerning the bond of her soul, is established—her husband has broken them—and YHWH is propitious to her.

13Every vow and every oath—a bond to humble a soul—her husband establishes it, or her husband breaks it; 14and if her husband certainly keeps silent to her from day to day, then he has established all her vows or all her bonds which [are] on her; he has established them, for he has kept silent to her in the day of his hearing; 15and if he indeed breaks them after his hearing, then he has borne her iniquity.”

16These [are] the statutes which YHWH has commanded Moses between a man and his wife, between a father and his daughter, in her youth, [in] the house of her father.
