But if you tell this business of ours, then we shall be free from the oath which you have made us swear.”
and I will make you swear by the Lord,
the God of heaven and the God of earth, that you shall not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I live,
You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.
You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another.
If a man makes a vow to the Lord, or takes an oath to bind himself with a binding obligation, he shall not violate his word; he shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.
