1 Narravitque Moyses filiis Israel omnia, quae ei Dominus imperarat,
2 et locutus est ad principes tribuum filiorum Israel: "Iste est sermo, quem praecepit Dominus:
3 Si quis virorum votum Domino voverit aut se constrinxerit iuramento, non faciet irritum verbum suum, sed omne, quod promisit, implebit.
4 Mulier, si quippiam voverit Domino aut se constrinxerit iuramento, quae est in domo patris sui et in aetate adhuc puellari,
5 si cognoverit pater votum, quod pollicita est, aut iuramentum, quo ligavit animam suam, et tacuerit, voti rea erit; quidquid pollicita est aut iuravit, opere complebit.
6 Sin autem, quo die audierit contradixerit pater, et vota et iuramenta eius irrita erunt; et propitius erit ei Dominus, eo quod contradixerit pater.
7 Si maritum habuerit et voverit aliquid, aut semel de ore eius verbum egrediens animam eius ligaverit iuramento,
8 quo die audierit vir eius et non contradixerit, voti rea erit reddetque, quodcumque promiserat.
9 Sin autem, quo die audierit contradixerit, irritas facit pollicitationes eius verbaque, quibus obstrinxerat animam suam; et propitius erit ei Dominus.
10 Vidua et repudiata, quidquid voverint, reddent.
11 Uxor in domo viri cum se voto constrinxerit aut iuramento,
12 si audierit vir et tacuerit nec contradixerit sponsioni, reddet, quodcumque promiserat.
13 Sin autem extemplo contradixerit, non tenebitur promissionis rea, quia maritus contradixit, et Dominus ei propitius erit.
14 Si voverit aut iuramento se constrinxerit, ut per ieiunium affligat animam suam, in arbitrio viri erit, ut faciat sive non faciat.
15 Quod si audiens vir tacuerit et de die in diem distulerit sententiam, quidquid voverat atque promiserat, reddet, quia, quo die audierat, tacuit.
16 Sin autem contradixerit, postquam rescivit, portabit ipse iniquitatem eius"
17 Istae sunt leges, quas constituit Dominus Moysi inter virum et uxorem, inter patrem et filiam, quae in puellari adhuc aetate manet in parentis domo.
King James Version
1 And Moses spake unto the heads of the tribes concerning the children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded.
2 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.
3 If a woman also vow a vow unto the LORD, and bind herself by a bond, being in her father's house in her youth;
4 And her father hear her vow, and her bond wherewith she hath bound her soul, and her father shall hold his peace at her: then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand.
5 But if her father disallow her in the day that he heareth; not any of her vows, or of her bonds wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand: and the LORD shall forgive her, because her father disallowed her.
6 And if she had at all an husband, when she vowed, or uttered ought out of her lips, wherewith she bound her soul;
7 And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her in the day that he heard it: then her vows shall stand, and her bonds wherewith she bound her soul shall stand.
8 But if her husband disallowed her on the day that he heard it; then he shall make her vow which she vowed, and that which she uttered with her lips, wherewith she bound her soul, of none effect: and the LORD shall forgive her.
9 But every vow of a widow, and of her that is divorced, wherewith they have bound their souls, shall stand against her.
10 And if she vowed in her husband's house, or bound her soul by a bond with an oath;
11 And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her, and disallowed her not: then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she bound her soul shall stand.
12 But if her husband hath utterly made them void on the day he heard them; then whatsoever proceeded out of her lips concerning her vows, or concerning the bond of her soul, shall not stand: her husband hath made them void; and the LORD shall forgive her.
13 Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the soul, her husband may establish it, or her husband may make it void.
14 But if her husband altogether hold his peace at her from day to day; then he establisheth all her vows, or all her bonds, which are upon her: he confirmeth them, because he held his peace at her in the day that he heard them.
15 But if he shall any ways make them void after that he hath heard them; then he shall bear her iniquity.
16 These are the statutes, which the LORD commanded Moses, between a man and his wife, between the father and his daughter, being yet in her youth in her father's house.
