1 Moses spoke to the leaders 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 solemn promise to the LORD or swears a solemn pledge of binding obligation for himself, he cannot break his word. He must do everything he said. 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 solemn promise to the LORD or a binding obligation while she is young and in her father's household, 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 her solemn promise or her binding obligation for herself and keeps silent—then all her solemn promises and any of her binding obligations for herself 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 her father expresses disapproval to her on the day that he hears her, none of her solemn promises nor any of her binding obligations for herself will stand. The LORD will forgive her, because her father expressed disapproval to 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 marries while her solemn promise is in effect or makes a statement by which she binds 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 it and on the day he hears it keeps silent—her solemn promises will stand as well as her binding obligations for herself. 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 that her husband hears it he expresses disapproval to her, he can break her solemn promise and the statement by which she bound herself. Then 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 Every solemn promise of a widow or a divorced woman who makes a binding obligation for herself will stand. 9 "Any vow or obligation taken by a widow or divorced woman will be binding on her.
10 If a woman makes a solemn promise in her husband's household or makes a binding obligation for herself with a solemn pledge, 10 "If a woman living with her husband makes a vow or obligates herself by a pledge under oath
11 and her husband hears, keeps silent, and doesn't express disapproval to her—then all her solemn promises will stand and all her binding obligations for 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 If her husband breaks them on the day he hears them, then whatever she said with regard to her solemn promises or the binding obligations for herself will not stand. Her husband has broken them. 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 Her husband may allow any solemn promise or any binding pledge of self-denial to stand or be broken. 13 Her husband may confirm or nullify any vow she makes or any sworn pledge to deny herself.
14 But if her husband keeps silent from one day to the next, he has upheld all her solemn promises, or all her binding obligations. He has upheld them because he remained silent 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 breaks them after he has heard them, he will assume 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 regulations that the LORD commanded Moses concerning a husband and his wife and between a father and his daughter while she is young and in her father's household. 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.
