Numbers 30:6-8

Context
Vows Made by Married Women

30:6 “And if she marries a husband while under a vow, 1  or she uttered 2  anything impulsively by which she has pledged herself, 30:7 and her husband hears about it, but remains silent about her when he hears about it, then her vows will stand and her obligations which she has pledged for herself will stand. 30:8 But if when her husband hears it he overrules her, then he will nullify 3  the vow she has taken, 4  and whatever she uttered impulsively which she has pledged for herself. And the Lord will release her from it.

1 tn Heb “and her vows are upon her.” It may be that the woman gets married while her vows are still unfulfilled.

2 tn The Hebrew text indicates that this would be some impetuous vow that she uttered with her lips, a vow that her husband, whether new or existing, would not approve of. Several translate it “a binding obligation rashly uttered.”

3 tn The verb is the Hiphil perfect with a vav (ו) consecutive from the verb פָּרַר (parar, “to annul”). The verb functions here as the equivalent of an imperfect tense; here it is the apodosis following the conditional clause – if this is the case, then this is what will happen.

4 tn Heb “which [she is] under it.”
