And if she have a husband, when she hath her vow upon her or ought that hath passed her lips wherewith she hath bound her soul, and her husband hear it and be silent at her in the day that he heareth it, then her vows shall stand, and her bonds wherewith she bound her soul shall stand. But if her husband prohibit her on the day that he heareth it, and annul her vow which is upon her, and what hath passed her lips, wherewith she hath bound her soul, then Jehovah shall pardon her. But the vow of a widow, and of her that is divorced, everything wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand against her. And if she have vowed in her husband's house, or have bound her soul by an oath with a bond, and her husband have heard it, and been silent at her, and hath not prohibited her, then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand. But if her husband have expressly annulled them on the day that he heard them, then nothing of that which is gone out of her lips as to her vows or the bond on her soul, shall stand: her husband hath annulled them; and Jehovah will pardon her. Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the soul, her husband can establish it, or her husband can annul it. And if her husband be altogether silent at her from day to day, then he hath established all her vows or all her bonds which are upon her; he hath confirmed them, for he hath been silent at her in the day that he heard them. But if he in any way annul them after he hath heard them, then he shall bear her iniquity.
