Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And Moses said to the heads of the tribes of the children of Israel, This is the order of the Lord. 1 Moses said to the heads of the tribes of Israel: "This is what the LORD commands:
2 When a man takes an oath to the Lord, or gives an undertaking having the force of an oath, let him not go back from his word, but let him do whatever he has said he will do. 2 When a man makes a vow to the LORD or takes an oath to obligate himself by a pledge, he must not break his word but must do everything he said.
3 If a woman, being young and under the authority of her father, takes an oath to the Lord or gives an undertaking; 3 "When a young woman still living in her father's house makes a vow to the LORD or obligates herself by a pledge
4 If her father, hearing of her oath or the undertaking she has given, says nothing to her, then all her oaths and every undertaking she has given will have force. 4 and her father hears about her vow or pledge but says nothing to her, then all her vows and every pledge by which she obligated herself will stand.
5 But if her father, hearing of it, makes her take back her word, then the oaths or the undertakings she has given will have no force; and she will have forgiveness from the Lord, because her oath was broken by her father. 5 But if her father forbids her when he hears about it, none of her vows or the pledges by which she obligated herself will stand; the LORD will release her because her father has forbidden her.
6 And if she is married to a husband at the time when she is under an oath or an undertaking given without thought; 6 "If she marries after she makes a vow or after her lips utter a rash promise by which she obligates herself
7 If her husband, hearing of it, says nothing to her at the time, then the oaths she made and the undertakings she gave will have force. 7 and her husband hears about it but says nothing to her, then her vows or the pledges by which she obligated herself will stand.
8 But if her husband, hearing of it, makes her take it back, then the oath she made and the undertaking she gave without thought will have no force or effect, and she will have the Lord's forgiveness. 8 But if her husband forbids her when he hears about it, he nullifies the vow that obligates her or the rash promise by which she obligates herself, and the LORD will release her.
9 But an oath made by a widow or one who is no longer married to her husband, and every undertaking she has given, will have force. 9 "Any vow or obligation taken by a widow or divorced woman will be binding on her.
10 If she made an oath while she was under the authority of her husband, 10 "If a woman living with her husband makes a vow or obligates herself by a pledge under oath
11 And her husband, hearing of it, said nothing to her and did not put a stop to it, then all her oaths and every undertaking she gave will have force. 11 and her husband hears about it but says nothing to her and does not forbid her, then all her vows or the pledges by which she obligated herself will stand.
12 But if her husband, on hearing of it, made them without force or effect, then whatever she has said about her oaths or her undertaking has no force: her husband has made them without effect, and she will have the Lord's forgiveness. 12 But if her husband nullifies them when he hears about them, then none of the vows or pledges that came from her lips will stand. Her husband has nullified them, and the LORD will release her.
13 Every oath, and every undertaking which she gives, to keep herself from pleasure, may be supported or broken by her husband. 13 Her husband may confirm or nullify any vow she makes or any sworn pledge to deny herself.
14 But if the days go on, and her husband says nothing whatever to her, then he is giving the support of his authority to her oaths and undertakings, because at the time of hearing them he said nothing to her. 14 But if her husband says nothing to her about it from day to day, then he confirms all her vows or the pledges binding on her. He confirms them by saying nothing to her when he hears about them.
15 But if at some time after hearing of them, he makes them without force, then he is responsible for her wrongdoing. 15 If, however, he nullifies them some time after he hears about them, then he is responsible for her guilt."
16 These are the laws which the Lord gave Moses in relation to a man and his wife, or a father and a young daughter who is under his authority. 16 These are the regulations the LORD gave Moses concerning relationships between a man and his wife, and between a father and his young daughter still living in his house.
