Hear this, O house of Jacob, who are called by the name of Israel, and have come forth out of the waters of Judah, who swear by the name of the LORD, and make mention of the God of Israel, but not in truth, nor in righteousness.
Bless you God in the congregations, even the Lord, from the fountain of Israel.
And you shall swear, The LORD lives, in truth, in justice, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory.
He shall pour the water out of his buckets, and his seed shall be in many waters, and his king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted.
You shall fear the LORD your God, and serve him, and shall swear by his name.
Israel then shall dwell in safety alone: the fountain of Jacob shall be upon a land of grain and wine; also his heavens shall drop down dew.
I have sworn by myself, the word has gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
That he who blesses himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that swears in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from my eyes.
And he said, Your name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince have you power with God and with men, and have prevailed.
And God said unto him, Your name is Jacob: your name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be your name: and he called his name Israel.
And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of your mouth.
And you shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shall you profane the name of your God: I am the LORD.
And the LORD heard the voice of your words, when you spoke unto me; and the LORD said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken unto you: they have well said all that they have spoken.
You shall fear the LORD your God; him shall you serve, and to him shall you cleave, and swear by his name.
Unto this day they do after the former manners: they fear not the LORD, neither do they follow their statutes, or their ordinances, or after the law and commandment which the LORD commanded the children of Jacob, whom he named Israel;
But unto the wicked God says, What have you to do to declare my statutes, or that you should take my covenant in your mouth?
But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that swears by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
Say unto God, How awesome are you in your works! through the greatness of your power shall your enemies submit themselves unto you.
Should your fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets?
Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah.
O LORD our God, other lords besides you have had dominion over us: but by you only will we make mention of your name.
One shall say, I am the LORD's; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall write on his hand, The LORD's, and surname himself by the name of Israel.
Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching God.
The LORD has sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give your grain to be food for your enemies; and the sons of the foreigner shall not drink your wine, for which you have labored:
And though they say, The LORD lives; surely they swear falsely.
Will you steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom you know not;
And those that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and those that worship and that swear by the LORD, and yet swear by Milcom;
And I will come near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the sojourner from his right, and fear not me, says the LORD of hosts.
These people draw near unto me with their mouth, and honor me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for you neither go in yourselves, neither allow you them that are entering to go in.
Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
Behold, you are called a Jew, and rest in the law, and make your boast of God,
For he is not a Jew, who is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
Not as though the word of God has taken no effect. For they are not all Israel, who are of Israel:
That is, They who are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the descendants.
Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
I know your works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but you are rich) and I know the blasphemy of them who say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.
