Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 (30-2) And he said to the princes of the tribes of the children of Israel: This is the word that the Lord hath commanded: 1 Moses said to the heads of the tribes of Israel: "This is what the LORD commands:
2 (30-3) If any man make a vow to the Lord, or bind himself by an oath: he shall not make his word void but shall fulfil all that he promised. 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 (30-4) If a woman vow any thing, and bind herself by an oath, being in her father’s house, and but yet a girl in age: if her father knew the vow that she hath promised, and the oath wherewith she hath bound her soul, and held his peace, she shall be bound by the vow: 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 (30-5) Whatsoever she promised and swore, she shall fulfil in deed. 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 (30-6) But if her father, immediately as soon as he heard it, gainsaid it, both her vows and her oaths shall be void, neither shall she be bound to what she promised, because her father hath gainsaid it. 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 (30-7) If she have a husband, and shall vow any thing, and the word once going out of her mouth shall bind her soul by an oath, 6 "If she marries after she makes a vow or after her lips utter a rash promise by which she obligates herself
7 (30-8) The day that her husband shall hear it, and not gainsay it, she shall be bound to the vow, and shall give whatsoever she promised. 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 (30-9) But if as soon as he heareth he gainsay it, and make her promises and the words wherewith she had bound her soul of no effect: 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 (30-10) The widow, and she that is divorced, shall fulfil whatsoever they vow. 9 "Any vow or obligation taken by a widow or divorced woman will be binding on her.
10 (30-11) If the wife in the house of her husband, hath bound herself by vow and by oath, 10 "If a woman living with her husband makes a vow or obligates herself by a pledge under oath
11 (30-12) If her husband hear, and hold his peace, and doth not disallow the promise, she shall accomplish whatsoever she had promised. 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 (30-13) But if forthwith he gainsay it, she shall not be bound by the promise: because her husband gainsaid it, and the Lord will be merciful to 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 (30-14) If she vow and bind herself by oath, to afflict her soul by fasting, or abstinence from other things, it shall depend on the will of her husband, whether she shall do it, or not do it. 13 Her husband may confirm or nullify any vow she makes or any sworn pledge to deny herself.
14 (30-15) But if the husband hearing it hold his peace, and defer the declaring his mind till another day: whatsoever she had vowed and promised, she shall fulfil: because immediately as he heard it, he held his peace. 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 (30-16) But if he gainsay it after that he knew it, he shall bear her iniquity. 15 If, however, he nullifies them some time after he hears about them, then he is responsible for her guilt."
16 (30-17) These are the laws which the Lord appointed to Moses between the husband and the wife, between the father and the daughter that is as yet but a girl in age, or that abideth 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.
