Watch Your Language
- ¶ 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.
- But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
