Contracts in the Bible

Society depends upon individuals fulfilling the promises they make to one another. Through promises, people establish social, legal, and economic relationships. Some promises are enforceable by the civil government, and others are not. This is the primary reason for the existence of contract law. Essentially, a contract is a promise that the law will enforce.

In the Bible we see how men have bound themselves by the words they spoke. Some of those words were spoken as a voluntary promise to God and are called vows (e.g., Jacob Genesis 28:20; Nazarites - Numbers 6). The Scriptures clearly say that if we make such a vow to God we must keep it. (See Ecclesiastes 5:4,5; Deuteronomy 23:21-23; Numbers 30:2; Malachi 1:14; Proverbs 20:25.)  

On other occasions in Scripture we see that men have bound themselves to other men and have solidified their promise with an oath to God. For example, Abraham swore to Abimelech that he would not deal falsely with him. Also, Jacob made a covenant coupled with an oath when he left Laban. (See Genesis 31:44-55.) An oath is an appeal to God to witness the truthfulness of a statement or the binding character of a promise. It is essentially an appeal to God to execute judgment upon one who fails to keep his promise or does not tell the truth (as with judicial oaths). (See Leviticus 19:12 and Exodus 20:7.)5
