Numbers 30

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.

  1. Verses 1-2 MSG “Moses spoke to the heads of the tribes of the People of Israel: “This is what God commands: When a man makes a vow to God or binds himself by an oath to do something, he must not break his word; he must do exactly what he has said.” Verse 2 CEV simply says “When one of you men makes a promise to the Lord,[a] you must keep your word”. Plain and simple right?? Sadly, people in our world today make vows left and right, without holding them to the highest standard of trying to keep them.

    Ecclesiastes 5:5 CEV says “It’s better not to make a promise at all than to make one and not keep it”. Ecclesiastes 5:4-5 MSG says “When you tell God you’ll do something, do it—now. God takes no pleasure in foolish gabble. Vow it, then do it. Far better not to vow in the first place than to vow and not pay up.”

  2. 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.

    The woman spoke her vowel to her husband or her father, whichever was her authority at that moment. This lets us know it’s ok to take things we want to personally vowel to God to those in authority over us.

    Her authority had the power to give their approval or redirect her. We cannot look at this as unfair it was a way to keep her safe.

    “The judgment of a father or guardian on the vow of any under his charge might be given either by an expressed approval or by silence, which was to be construed as approval. But in the case of a husband who, after silence from day to day, should ultimately disapprove or hinder his wife’s vow, the sin of non-performance was to be imputed to him and not to her [ Numbers 30:15 ].”- I thought this was interesting

  3. And Moses spake unto the heads of the tribes concerning the children of Israel, saying This is the thing which the Lord hath commanded.
    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.

    The principal is that he cannot break his word. The law mentions two types of vow: the vow (neder) and the bond (issar).The former term is the more common, and here at least means a vow to do something positive such as offering a sacrifice, whereas issar is a vow of abstinence, a self- imposed fast.

    Psalm 132:1-5 Lord, remember David, and all his afflictions: How he sware unto the Lord, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob; Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed; I will not go sleep to mine eyes or slumber to my eyelids, Until I find out a place for the Lord, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.

  4. 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.

    It’s not complicated – God requires us to keep our promises and do what we said we would do.

    Women have a buffer that may keep them from being held responsible for what they vowed; it’s a benefit of being under subjection to their husband or father.

  5. INTEGRITY

    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.

    When we commit to the LORD to do something, GOD is very expectant that we will keep our word just as HE keeps HIS WORD.

    If we say or sign that we are going to do something we should make every sacrifice to keep our commitment or vow unto the LORD.

    iRepent
    iPraise
    iPray
    iWork
    iGive
    iReap

  6. Numbers 30:2, “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.”

    Deut. 23:21 says, “When thou shalt vow a vow unto the LORD thy God, thou shalt not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God will surely require it of thee: and it would be sin unto thee.”

    Don’t make a vow or promise you don’t plan on keeping. If you do make a vow or promise and don’t keep it, it is sin.
    Be True To Your Word!

  7. You lazy fool, look at an ant.
    Watch it closely; let it teach you a thing or two.
    Nobody has to tell it what to do.
    All summer it stores up food;
    at harvest it stockpiles provisions.
    So how long are you going to laze around doing nothing?
    How long before you get out of bed?
    A nap here, a nap there, a day off here, a day off there,
    sit back, take it easy—do you know what comes next?
    Just this: You can look forward to a dirt-poor life,
    poverty your permanent houseguest!
    Proverbs 6 MSG

  8. Say what you need to say.

    But never say what you don’t mean.
    And never give promise you can’t keep.

  9. Vows and promises should be taken to heart. Better to not vow or promise if it is just words for the current while.

  10. Numbers 30:2 (NLT)

    2 A man who makes a vow to the Lord or makes a pledge under oath must never break it. He must do exactly what he said he would do.

    A vow is our word and our word is our bond. If we cannot keep our word then we cannot be trusted.

    We are made in the likeness of God and he is the word. The word was made flesh and dwelt among us. If the Lord did not keep his word then all that hands on his word would suddenly fall apart.

    Our word is important because we are daily writing our own personal Bible. Will our word, our bible, our epistle line up with his word or are we just another work of fiction?

  11. 2 A man who makes a vow to the Lord or makes a pledge under oath must never break it. He must do exactly what he said he would do. (NLT)

    Beyond keeping our word and not breaking our promises, this verse also says, that we should do exactly what we say. So even if you kind of half way, keep/do your promise, it’s still breaking your promise. Like lying, even if you didn’t mean to, or it was unintentional, it still is what it is. At that point forgiveness comes in, and I thank God for forgiveness and mercy!

  12. 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.
    It’s important for husbands to realize their responsibility to their family. We need to be careful what we commit ourselves to and what we allow those in our house to commit themselves to. We must make sure to be faithful and everything that we commit to in doing so God will bless us and our families.

  13. Be careful what you promise God when you pray. If you promise/pledge you will pray an hour a day be sure the Lord will hold you accountable.

    “A man who makes a vow to the LORD or makes a pledge under oath must never break it. He must do exactly what he said he would do. “If a young woman makes a vow to the LORD or a pledge under oath while she is still living at her father’s home, and her father hears of the vow or pledge and does not object to it, then all her vows and pledges will stand.”
    ‭‭Numbers‬ ‭30:2-4‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  14. Numbers 3010 if a woman living with her husband makes a vow or obligates herself by a pledge under oath and her husband hears about it but says nothing to her and does not forbid her then all her vows or pledges by which she obligated herself will stand. 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 may confirm or nullify any vow she makes or any sworn pledge to deny herself. But if her husband says nothing to het about it from day to day then he confirms all her vows or pledges binding on her. He confirms them by saying nothing to her when he hears about them. If however he nullifies them sometime after he hears about them then he must bear the consequences of her wrong doing.

  15. 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.

  16. Do not make a promise if u can’t keep it don’t say u will do something and then you turn around and break 30:2 if a man vow a vow unto the Lord or swear and oath to bind his soul with a bond he shall nor break his word he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth

  17. A promise is a promise.

    Wow. Even with a vow. If the head would disallow it you would be forgiven. We serve a great God. But it’s only good is the head disallows it. Not if we back out of it. A mans word should be his bond. A man should not speak unless they are willing to be bound by it. And when I say man I mean all people. We are bound by what comes out of our mouths. So be careful what you speak. Are you speaking life or death?

  18. “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.” The Lord provided in detail to Moses what would be required. There was a route that could be taken if an error was made, however there was still a requirement to fulfill. God help us to be mindful before speaking, in Jesus name

  19. “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.” The word of God (Jesus) was clear on what and how. One would be wise to discuss matters with one’s spouse, so that both are fully aware. Dear God, help us to recognize the benefits of clear and open communication. God Bless America, Israel, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  20. It is important to honor every vow that you make. God will hold you to your words. We will be judged by what we say and do. Don’t allow the things in your life to detour you from the promise you’ve made to God.

  21. Vows
    A vow involved promising to give something.to God.or promising not to do something. Either might have an economic impact on the family and so the husband and.father who was responsible for the family had the right to override vows made by a wife or daughter.

  22. Often times we as men can become complasive and think that we have all the answers! Majority of the time we may not realize we are doing this nor have this kind of attitude until someone confronts us about it. We as men must arise up in knowledge and understand that if you are the head of your household. What you do is what others will not only see but your own children will follow based upon not just their parents behaviors but mainly man because they often look up to their dad for advice! I can remember at a very early age not having the support of my father! However at very early age someone got me involved in a church, it was a baptist church. I quickly left that church and never went back. It was in the 9th grade a friend of mine invited back to church. I use to go there for Sunday School only but never to experience a actual service. From that moment when I stepped out on faith my life was changed. I can since then say that not only has my life been changed but my testimony has gotten stronger! I would like to encourage each and everyone of us men to be the standard in which God has called us to be! Be laborers for the kingdom of God! Keep sacrificing Men God sees all we are doing! If you are lacking the bible says its better to acknowledge it than to deny it! Acknowledge it before God and watch him do the work that you thought was impossible! Be BLESSED POFW family! Love you all!
    Quick Testimony
    I now have my own apartment! Through my giving of sacrificially giving to IFT without a commitment form filled out, this miracle happened! This tuesday I will be moving the final things out and taking the next steps of action! Bible studies will be taught and already have 1 person whom wants to be taught a bible study! So in all keep giving to IFT God has seen the giving amounts and hes going to bless all those whom are giving! For those whom are not I challange you to give and begin to watch those moutains begin to fall! Go NORTHWORD POFW! In Jesus Name Amen

  23. Do what you say your going to do

    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.

    The Lord is teaching Business 101 here. The first thing that makes a bad business is failure to deliver or to deliver on time. When you vow a vow or make a statement, it is all up to you to make the confessions of that statement or vow. If you cannot do it then don’t say it, very simple. Under promos and over deliver is what I heard my Dad say over and over again. Do what you say your going to do.

  24. Any vow that is made is binding unless the man (authority figure) in your life dismisses the statement. We can’t turn on our own words and say we didn’t mean them. Your words mean something, your actions mean more.

  25. The vows here are of two kinds in verse 2. 1) a vow of ones self or ones substance to the Lord. If one says, I will do “x” for God. Then that same one is to do “x.” 2) a vow of obligation is one with a negative attachment, that is I will abstain from “x” or I will not do “x” until I do “y.” An example of this is seen in Acts 23:12. The principle here is to do what you say you will do. In ancient context, a person was as good as their word. In the 21st century, this isn’t the case. Nonetheless, many people do not hold a high opinion of one who says one thing and does another.

  26. “Those are the rules the Lord gave Moses about a man and his wife. And those are the rules the Lord gave about a father and his young daughter who is still living in his house.”
    ‭‭Numbers‬ ‭30:16‬ ‭NIRV‬‬
    I appreciate the authority over my life. It has been designed to protect me.

  27. iLove to Grow in the Word

    “A man who makes a vow to the LORD or makes a pledge under oath must never break it. He must do exactly what he said he would do.”
    ‭‭Numbers‬ ‭30:2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    The Lord takes vows and pledges very seriously. How do we take pledges and vows, the rule of thumb is, however seriously we take pledges and vows is how seriously we take God.

  28. “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.”(‭Numbers‬ ‭30:2‬ ‭KJV)

    If a man vow a vow concerning something lawful, and in his power to perform.Unto the Lord to the honour and service of God or swear an oath confirm his vow by an oath to bind his soul with a bond to restrain himself from something otherwise lawful; as, suppose, from such a sort of meat or drink; or to oblige himself to the performance of something otherwise not necessary, as to observe a private day of fasting. In Jesus Name !!

  29. 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.

    There’s an old saying “the road to hell is paved with good intentions.”
    Too many people over promise and under perform. They think the over promising makes them look good, but the under performance negates anything that.

    Take what you say seriously and then live up to it.

  30. It seems strange to the natural woman’s mind that a father is allowed to interfere in his daughter’s religious experience or a husband in his wife’s. This law regarding a women’s vows is made for the protection of women, as were so many of God’s other laws. The primary regulation regarding vows taken by both men and women is that they be fulfilled. Women at that time were under the authority of the men in their lives. God knows that their responsibilities to their families and to their husbands may at times may conflict with their vows and obligations to God. He therefore here provides a clause that will release women from their vows, eliminating the source of contention and possible abuse between women and those who had authority over them.

  31. Then Moses summoned the leaders of the tribes of Israel and told them, “This is what the Lord has commanded: A man who makes a vow to the Lord or makes a pledge under oath must never break it. He must do exactly what he said he would do.
    Numbers 30:1-2 NLT
    http://bible.com/116/num.30.1-2.NLT

    Several things come to mind bit the First one is our IFT commitment. It was a thing between God and oneself. We should not get mad if pastor reminds us of the covenant we made.

  32. NLT 13 So her husband may either confirm or nullify any vows or pledges she makes to deny herself.

    God has given the man, husband or father authority to be over his household. He makes decisions base on godly principles and guidance. If a house has God in their home, God will have final authority over it. Without proper authority a household will be in shambles.

  33. 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;

    The Lord takes a vow serious wether it be from a man or a woman.

  34. Promises.
    W have to do what we say and say what we do. We can not make empty promises. It upsetsGod and is ad for those who promise. If you promise something and can not keep it, it is better for someone over you to correct the promise as soon as it is made. Oh the value of authority.

  35. One commentator states that boys were able to vow at 12 & girls at 13. Since they could possibly make frivolous or unrealistic vows, they had protection from their father to oversee the vow and approve or disapprove.
