     hath bound her soul, and her father shall hold his {b}
     peace at her: then all her vows shall stand, and every bond
     wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand.

     (b) For in so doing he approves her.

Nu 30:5
30:5 But if her {c} father disallow her in the day that he

         perform nothing without his consent.

      {i} 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

      (i) And warn her not the same day that he hears it, as in
          @Nu 30:8.

Nu 30:15
30:15 But if he shall any ways {k} make them void after that he
      hath heard [them]; then he shall bear her iniquity.

      (k) Not the same day he heard them, but some day after,
          the sin will be imputed to him and not to her.
