SWEAR NOT AT ALL
We will examine today the words of our Lord Jesus in Matthew 5:33-37. This is a passage that deals with the matter of oath and swearing. Matthew 5:33-37 reads like this.
Matthew 5:33. Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.’
34 But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne;
35 nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.
36 Nor shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black.
37 But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.
