Fulfill Your Vow to God

5a Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. Go near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools, who do not know that they do wrong.

Do not be quick with your mouth,

do not be hasty in your heart

to utter anything before God.n

God is in heaven

and you are on earth,

so let your words be few.o

A dreamp comes when there are many cares,

and many words mark the speech of a fool.q

When you make a vow to God, do not delay to fulfill it.r He has no pleasure in fools; fulfill your vow.s It is better not to make a vow than to make one and not fulfill it.t Do not let your mouth lead you into sin. And do not protest to the temple messenger, “My vow was a mistake.” Why should God be angry at what you say and destroy the work of your hands? Much dreaming and many words are meaningless. Therefore fear God.u
