1 Then Moshe spoke to the heads of the tribes of the people of Isra'el. He said, "Here is what ADONAI has ordered: 1 Moses said to the heads of the tribes of Israel: "This is what the LORD commands:
2 when a man makes a vow to ADONAI or formally obligates himself by swearing an oath, he is not to break his word but is to do everything he said he would 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 "When a woman makes a vow to ADONAI, formally obligating herself, while she is a minor living in her father's house; 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 then, if her father has heard what she vowed or obligated herself to do and holds his peace, then all her vows remain binding - every obligation she has bound herself to will stand. 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 on the day her father hears it, he expresses his disapproval, then none of her vows or obligations she has bound herself to will stand; and ADONAI will forgive her, because her father expressed his disapproval. 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 "If, having made vows or rashly committed herself to an obligation, she gets married; 6 "If she marries after she makes a vow or after her lips utter a rash promise by which she obligates herself
7 and her husband hears but holds his peace with her on the day he learns of it, then her vows and obligations she has bound herself to will stand. 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 expresses his disapproval on the day he hears it, he will void the vow which is on her and the obligation to which she has bound herself; and ADONAI will forgive her. 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 "The vow of a widow, however, or of a divorcee, including everything to which she has obligated herself, will stand against her. 9 "Any vow or obligation taken by a widow or divorced woman will be binding on her.
10 "If a woman vowed in her husband's house or obligated herself with an 10 "If a woman living with her husband makes a vow or obligates herself by a pledge under oath
11 and her husband heard it but held his peace with her and did not express disapproval, then all her vows and obligations will stand. 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 makes them null and void on the day he hears them, then whatever she said, vows or binding obligation, will not stand; her husband has voided them; and ADONAI will forgive her. 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 Her husband may let every vow and every binding obligation stand, or he may void it. 13 Her husband may confirm or nullify any vow she makes or any sworn pledge to deny herself.
14 But if her husband entirely holds his peace with her day after day, then he confirms all her vows and obligations; he must let them stand, because he held his peace with her on the day he heard them. 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 If he makes them null and void after he has heard them, then he will bear the consequent guilt." 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 ADONAI ordered Moshe between a man and his wife, and between a father and his daughter, if she is a minor living in her father's house. 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.
