New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then Moses said to the heads of the tribes of the Israelites: This is what the Lord has commanded. 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 the Lord, or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word; he shall do according to all that proceeds out of 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 When a woman makes a vow to the Lord, or binds herself by a pledge, while within her father's house, in her youth, 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 and her father hears of her vow or her pledge by which she has bound herself, and says nothing to her; then all her vows shall stand, and any pledge by which she has bound herself shall 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 her father expresses disapproval to her at the time that he hears of it, no vow of hers, and no pledge by which she has bound herself, shall stand; and the Lord will forgive her, because her father had expressed to her 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 she marries, while obligated by her vows or any thoughtless utterance of her lips by which she has bound herself, 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 says nothing to her at the time that he hears, then her vows shall stand, and her pledges by which she has bound herself shall 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, at the time that her husband hears of it, he expresses disapproval to her, then he shall nullify the vow by which she was obligated, or the thoughtless utterance of her lips, by which she bound herself; and the Lord 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 every vow of a widow or of a divorced woman, by which she has bound herself, shall be binding upon her.) 9 "Any vow or obligation taken by a widow or divorced woman will be binding on her.
10 And if she made a vow in her husband's house, or bound herself by a pledge with an 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 and said nothing to her, and did not express disapproval to her, then all her vows shall stand, and any pledge by which she bound herself shall 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 nullifies them at the time that he hears them, then whatever proceeds out of her lips concerning her vows, or concerning her pledge of herself, shall not stand. Her husband has nullified them, and the Lord 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 or any binding oath to deny herself, her husband may allow to stand, or her husband may nullify. 13 Her husband may confirm or nullify any vow she makes or any sworn pledge to deny herself.
14 But if her husband says nothing to her from day to day, then he validates all her vows, or all her pledges, by which she is obligated; he has validated them, because he said nothing to her at the time that he heard of 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 nullifies them some time after he has heard of them, then he shall 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 statutes that the Lord commanded Moses concerning a husband and his wife, and a father and his daughter while she is still young and 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.
