33 Again, you have heard that it has been said to those of old, 'You shall not perjure yourself, but you shall perform your oaths to the Lord.'
34 But I say to you, Do not swear at all; neither by heaven, for it is God's throne;
35 Nor by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.
36 Neither shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black.
|James 5:12 |
12 But above all things, my brothers, do not swear,3 neither by heaven or by the earth, nor by any other oath; but let your "Yes" be yes; and your "No," no, to avoid being condemned.
