Deuteronomy 23:21-23

Context
23:21 When you make a vow to the Lord your God you must not delay in fulfilling it, for otherwise he 1  will surely 2  hold you accountable as a sinner. 3  23:22 If you refrain from making a vow, it will not be sinful. 23:23 Whatever you vow, you must be careful to do what you have promised, such as what you have vowed to the Lord your God as a freewill offering.

1 tn Heb “the Lord your God.” The pronoun has been used in the translation for stylistic reasons to avoid redundancy.

2 tn The Hebrew text uses the infinitive absolute for emphasis, which is reflected in the translation by “surely.”

3 tn Heb “and it will be a sin to you”; NIV, NCV, NLT “be guilty of sin.”
