Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
We meet with numberless circumstances in the Old Testament Scripture respecting vows. It is our happiness, however, under the New Testament dispensation, that we are brought under no particular ordinance concerning them. The dedication of the heart to the Lord doth not come under the article of a vow, because, in a believer, the offering the soul to God in Christ is in the Lord's strength. A vow in man savours of human strength too strongly to come under the character of the gospel dispensation.
