  • Swearing by His Name

    Thou shalt fear יהוה thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name. Deuteronomy 10:20 (6:13)

    And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am יהוה. Leviticus 19:12

    And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, יהוה liveth; as they taught my people to swear by Baal; then shall they be built in the midst of my people. Jeremiah 12:16

    Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne: Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. Matthew 5:33-37

    Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon. Matthew 23:20-22
