Read the Word Of God Daily

Chapter 30 of the Book Of Numbers

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse. Todays reading is currently at:
Numbers 30:1-10

1 And Moses told the children of Israel all that the Lord had commanded him: 2 And he said to the princes of the tribes of the children of Israel. This is the word that the Lord hath commanded. 3 If any man make a vow to the Lord, or bind himself by an oath, he shall not make his word void but shall fulfil all that he promised. 4 If a woman vow any thing, and bind herself by an oath, being in her father's house, and but yet a girl in age: if her father knew the vow that she hath promised, and the oath wherewith she hath bound her soul, and held his peace, she shall be bound by the vow. 5 Whatsoever she promised and swore, she shall fulfil in deed.

6 But if her father, immediately as soon as he heard it, gainsaid it, both her vows and her oaths shall be void, neither shall she be bound to what she promised, because her father hath gainsaid it. 7 If she have a husband, and shall vow any thing, and the word once going out of her mouth shall bind her soul by an oath: 8 The day that her husband shall hear it, and not gainsay it, she shall be bound to the vow, and shall give whatsoever she promised. 9 But if as soon as he heareth he gainsay it, and make her promises and the words wherewith she had bound her soul of no effect : the Lord will forgive her. 10 The widow, and she that is divorced, shall fulfil whatsoever they vow.
