Matot

 30:6
30:6 However, if he obstructs her on the day he hears [it], then any such vow or self-imposed obligation of hers shall not be fulfilled. Since her father has obstructed her, God will forgive her.
Ve'im-heni aviha otah beyom shom'o kol-nedareyha ve'esareyha asher-asrah al-nafshah lo yakum v'Adonay yislach-lah ki-heni aviha otah.



Commentary:

obstructs
  (Rashi). Heyni in Hebrew. Or, 'breaks' (Ibn Ezra), 'annuls' (Sifri; cf. Mizrachi); or 'countermands' (Septuagint). Any wording that negates the vow is effective (Nedarim 77b; Yad, Nedarim 13:1,2).

on the day
  Until nightfall of that day; Numbers 30:15 (Nedarim 76b; Yad, Nedarim 12:15).
