'Swears' in the Bible
"When a man makes a vow to the LORD, or swears an oath an obligation that is binding to himself he is not to break his word. Instead, he is to fulfill whatever promise came out of his mouth.'"
But as for the king, he will rejoice in God. Indeed, everyone who swears by God will exult, because the mouths of liars will be silenced. To the Director: A Davidic Psalm.
"How terrible it will be for you, blind guides! You say, "Whoever swears an oath by the sanctuary is excused, but whoever swears an oath by the gold of the sanctuary must keep his oath.'
Again you say, "Whoever swears an oath by the altar is excused, but whoever swears by the gift that is on it must keep his oath.'
Therefore, the one who swears an oath by the altar swears by it and by everything on it.
The one who swears an oath by the sanctuary swears by it and by the one who lives there.
