The Fourth Book of Moses Called Numbers
The Vows in the Bible Lesson
Broken Vows Bible Laws
Hi everybody, and pleased to see you here at Daily Bread! We're
heading into the home stretch of the book of Numbers now, and in our
last segment we learned about the offerings that God's people gave
daily, on the Sabbath, each month, and on feast days.
You'll notice when you read about offerings in your Bible that often
times the Lord mentions that an offering is for a sweet savour
unto the Lord. When the sacrifice was burnt, the smoke would rise to
heaven and God liked the way it smelled. It's kinda similar to the
way we may like the smell of a candle. It was His people's gift to
Now then, the next thing that the Lord told Moses to tell the
children of Israel about was vows. If a man makes a promise to the
Lord or commits himself with an oath or a promise or gives his word
or swears (pledges) something, he should not break his word, but he
should do whatever he vowed.

Broken Vows Bible Obligations
If a woman is still in her youth and lives in her father's house, and
her father hears her make a vow, if he doesn't object to it, then she
is responsible for keeping her vows. But if her father doesn't allow
her in the day that he hears the vows, then she is not held to her
vows and the Lord will forgive her because her father disallowed her.
The same applies to a woman if she has a husband.
Every vow of a widow, and of a divorced woman shall stand unless the
husband made her vows invalid on the day he heard them. Then she is
not responsible for them and the Lord will forgive her.
A woman's husband may establish or make void any vow and any binding
oath she makes to humble the soul. If a husband holds his peace on
the day he heard his wife vow, and then later disallows it, then he
will bear her guilt.
The Vows in the Bible Truth
Broken Vows Bible Warning
This is what Jesus said about vows:
34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by
Heaven; for it is God's throne:
35 Nor by the Earth; for it is His footstool: neither by
Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.
36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou
canst not make one hair white or black.
Is that great advice or what?! How many times have you heard these
words ... You promised ... ? The next time you're requested or
compelled to make a promise, it may behoove you not to
swear to something, but to just try your best.
Unforeseen circumstances are more common than not and well intended
deeds can get foiled in the blink of an eye. If you simply do your
best without the commitment of a promise, not only does it release
you from do or die situations but any guilt you may feel for not
keeping your word is eliminated as well.
The Vows in the Bible Explanation
Broken Vows Bible Dangers
Never forget the forgiveness factor! These were laws from the Old
Testament. Some people feel bound by an oath when sometimes it wasn't
the Lord's will to begin with. Do you think the Lord wants to hold
you to something that makes you unhappy and/or that doesn't fulfill
His will just because you agreed to it in deception?
It sure seems like such a thing could affect a person enough to
interfere with their relationship with the Lord, doesn't it? He knows
we make mistakes. He knows that we need His understanding and
forgiveness. He also wants us to spend the precious moments of
our lives happily serving Him, not sorrowfully living out promises
that separate us from Him.
The Vows in the Bible Summary
Broken Vows Bible Conclusion
As we study through this Old Testament, and compare it to our lives
today, it's easy to see how similar we are to God's people from those
times. He saw that they couldn't do it without His mercy and grace,
and we need it daily. That's right, we need Him every day.
Be sure to join us next time when we learn about Israel going to war
against the Midianites, right here at Daily Bread.
