30:1 And Moses spake unto the heads of the tribes
concerning the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing
which the LORD hath commanded.
30:2 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to
bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he
shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.
30:3 If a woman also vow a vow unto the LORD, and bind
herself by a bond, being in her father's house in her youth;
30:4 And her father hear her vow, and her bond wherewith
she hath bound her soul, and her father shall hold his peace
at her; then all her vows shall stand, and every bond
wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand.
30:5 But if her father disallow her in the day that he
heareth; not any of her vows, or of her bonds wherewith she
hath bound her soul, shall stand: and the LORD shall forgive
her, because her father disallowed her.
30:6 And if she had at all an husband, when she vowed, or
uttered ought out of her lips, wherewith she bound her soul;
30:7 And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her in
the day that he heard it: then her vows shall stand, and her
bonds wherewith she bound her soul shall stand.
30:8 But if her husband disallowed her on the day that he
heard it; then he shall make her vow which she vowed, and
that which she uttered with her lips, wherewith she bound
her soul, of none effect: and the LORD shall forgive her.
30:9 But every vow of a widow, and of her that is divorced,
wherewith they have bound their souls, shall stand against
30:10 And if she vowed in her husband's house, or bound her
soul by a bond with an oath;
30:11 And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her,
and disallowed her not: then all her vows shall stand, and
every bond wherewith she bound her soul shall stand.
30:12 But if her husband hath utterly made them void on the
day he heard them; then whatsoever proceeded out of her lips
concerning her vows, or concerning the bond of her soul,
shall not stand: her husband hath made them void; and the
LORD shall forgive her.
30:13 Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the
soul, her husband may establish it, or her husband may make
30:14 But if her husband altogether hold his peace at her
from day to day; then he establisheth all her vows, or all
her bonds, which are upon her: he confirmeth them, because
he held his peace at her in the day that he heard them.
30:15 But if he shall any ways make them void after that he
hath heard them; then he shall bear her iniquity.
30:16 These are the statutes, which the LORD commanded
Moses, between a man and his wife, between the father and
his daughter, being yet in her youth in her father's house.
