When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.
Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

5:5 vow and not pay. Note Deuteronomy 23:21-23; Matthew 5:33-37; Acts 5:4; James 5:12. It is not good to make a promise to God, and then later forget it.
