 30:7
 30:8
30:7 [This is the law] if she is [betrothed] to a man and is bound by her vows and self-imposed verbal obligations.
Ve'im-hayo tihyeh le'ish unedareyha aleyha o mivta sfateyha asher asrah al-nafshah.
30:8 If the men in her life hear about it and remain silent on the day they hear, then her vows and self-imposed obligations must be kept.
Veshama ishah beyom shom'o vehecherish lah vekamu nedareyha ve'esareha asher-asrah al-nafshah yakumu.



Commentary:

betrothed
  (Nedarim 67a; Rashi). See Exodus 22:15.

verbal
  (Malbim). Bata in Hebrew. Or, 'oath' (Shevuoth 20a). See Leviticus 5:4.

men in her life
  That is, both her father and her husband together (Nedarim 66b, 67a; Yad, Nedarim 11:9). Although the Torah literally says, 'her man,' it denotes both (Yad, Nedarim 12:17; Tzafanath Paneach). Or, 'If her husband [also]' (Rashi, Ran, Nedarim, 67a).
