Jesus Christ the Son of God, who came into the world to save mankind from sin and its dreadful consequence, unutterable woe, in his sermon on the mount, says :
6 Ye have heard that it has 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.”
The apostle James says, “But above all things, my brethren, swear not; neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath ; but let your yea, be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.'
The prophet Jeremiah says, “ Because of swearing the land mourneth."
And a person of later date, says :
It chills my blood to hear the blest Supreme,
