# Does a Paladin's Divine Bond stack with levels from Holy Vindicator?

I am unsure as to the answer to this myself. It states in the description of the Paladin's Divine Bond that you gain a +1 bonus every 4 levels, but it doesn't say this is restricted to Paladin levels. Is it restricted to levels in the Paladin class, or does it also accrue with changes in prestige level, such as Holy Vindicator, or even from levels of other classes, such as Fighter?

Unless otherwise specified, any reference to "levels" in a class ability description, refers to class levels in the class that provides the ability being described. – Matthew Najmon Nov 15 '13 at 11:44
