155 - DELAYING PAYMENT OF VOWS


Deuteronomy 23:21-23 -- 21 “When you make a vow to the LORD your God, you shall not delay to pay it; for the LORD your God will surely require it of you, and it would be sin to you. 22 But if you abstain from vowing, it shall not be sin to you. 23 That which has gone from your lips you shall keep and perform, for you voluntarily vowed to the LORD your God what you have promised with your mouth.”

This commandment applies also to charity, which we have offered to give of our own free will; but the obligation must be fulfilled at once, otherwise one infringes the commandment immediately, “since he is in a position to give, and there are always poor people to be found who will accept his gift.”*

* Mishneh Torah, Zeraim, Hilchoth Matnoth Aniim VIII, 1
