Bible: Ecc 5:4-7

5:4 When you make a vow 1  to God, do not delay in paying it. 2 

For God 3  takes no pleasure in fools:

Pay what you vow!

5:5 It is better for you not to vow

than to vow and not pay it. 4 

5:6 Do not let your mouth cause you 5  to sin,

and do not tell the priest, 6  “It was a mistake!” 7 

Why make God angry at you 8 

so that he would destroy the work of your hands?

5:7 Just as there is futility in many dreams,

so also in many words. 9 

Therefore, fear God!
