All Commentaries on Ecclesiastes 5:3 Go To Ecclesiastes 5
George Leo Haydock
Pay it. Deuteronomy xxiii. Vows must be fulfilled. (Worthington)
God requires that we should keep the commandments; (Luke x. 28.) and if we engage ourselves to perform some work of supererogation, he expects that we should be faithful. To vow is of counsel; but to comply with it is of precept. An abuse too common among the Jews is here condemned. (Calmet)
