Matthew 5:33-36

Again, ye have heard that it hath 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.


Jesus forbids any form of swearing or oaths in ordinary conversation. We are not to base our word on swearing we are telling the truth, we are to always tell the truth.
