The Sermon On The Mount: Taking Oaths

33 "Again, you have heard that it was said to an older generation, 'Do not break an oath, but fulfill your vows to the Lord.' 34 But I say to you, do not take oaths at all -- not by heaven, because it is the throne of God, 35 not by earth, because it is his footstool, and not by Jerusalem, because it is the city of the great King.
