Laws concerning Vows

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:1 - [fn]Then Moses summoned the leaders of the tribes of Israel and told them, “This is what the LORD has commanded:

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:2 - A man who makes a vow to the LORD or makes a pledge under oath must never break it. He must do exactly what he said he would do.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:3 - “If a young woman makes a vow to the LORD or a pledge under oath while she is still living at her father’s home,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:4 - and her father hears of the vow or pledge and does not object to it, then all her vows and pledges will stand.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:5 - But if her father refuses to let her fulfill the vow or pledge on the day he hears of it, then all her vows and pledges will become invalid. The LORD will forgive her because her father would not let her fulfill them.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:6 - “Now suppose a young woman makes a vow or binds herself with an impulsive pledge and later marries.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:7 - If her husband learns of her vow or pledge and does not object on the day he hears of it, her vows and pledges will stand.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:8 - But if her husband refuses to accept her vow or impulsive pledge on the day he hears of it, he nullifies her commitments, and the LORD will forgive her.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:9 - If, however, a woman is a widow or is divorced, she must fulfill all her vows and pledges.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:10 - “But suppose a woman is married and living in her husband’s home when she makes a vow or binds herself with a pledge.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:11 - If her husband hears of it and does not object to it, her vow or pledge will stand.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:12 - But if her husband refuses to accept it on the day he hears of it, her vow or pledge will be nullified, and the LORD will forgive her.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:13 - So her husband may either confirm or nullify any vows or pledges she makes to deny herself.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:14 - But if he does not object on the day he hears of it, then he is agreeing to all her vows and pledges.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:15 - If he waits more than a day and then tries to nullify a vow or pledge, he will be punished for her guilt.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 30:16 - These are the regulations the LORD gave Moses concerning relationships between a man and his wife, and between a father and a young daughter who still lives at home.
