Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then Moses spoke to {the leaders} of the tribes concerning the {Israelites}, saying, "This [is] the word that Yahweh commanded: 1 Moses said to the heads of the tribes of Israel: "This is what the LORD commands:
2 if a man makes a vow for Yahweh or swears an oath with a binding pledge on himself, he must not render his word invalid; he must do all that went out from his mouth. 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 makes a vow to Yahweh, and she binds a pledge [on herself] in her father's house in your childhood, 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 but if her father hears her vow or her pledge that she bound on herself and says nothing to her, then all her vows will stand, and every pledge that she binds on her life 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 If her father forbids her on the day he hears [of it], all her vows or her pledges that she bound on herself will not stand, and Yahweh will forgive her because her father has forgiven her. 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 {she has a husband} while bound by her vows or a rash promise of her lips, 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 [of it] and is silent on the day he hears [it], her vows will stand, and her pledge that she bound upon herself 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 on the day her husband hears [of it], he forbids her, then he will nullify her vow that she is under, and the rash promise of her lips that she bound on herself; and Yahweh 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 "But the vow of a widow or a woman who is divorced, all that she binds on herself will stand on her. 9 "Any vow or obligation taken by a widow or divorced woman will be binding on her.
10 But if she made a vow [in] her husband's house, or bound herself on a pledge with a sworn oath, 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 was silent to her, and he did not forbid her, all her vows will stand and every pledge that she bound on herself 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 nullified them on the day he hears [them], all her vows going out of her lips concerning her vows or the pledge on herself will not stand; her husband has nullified them, and Yahweh 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 "Any vow and any sworn oath of a pledge to inflict on herself, her husband can confirm it or her husband can nullify it. 13 Her husband may confirm or nullify any vow she makes or any sworn pledge to deny herself.
14 But if her husband is completely silent from day to day, then he confirms all her vows or all her pledges that [are] on her; he confirms them because he was silent to 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 But if he indeed nullifies them after he hears them, then he will bear her 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 decrees that Yahweh commanded Moses, as between a husband and his wife, and between a father and his daughter, [while] her childhood [is 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.
