33 Againe, ye haue heard that it was sayd to them of old time, Thou shalt not forsweare thy selfe, but shalt performe thine othes to the Lord. 34 But I say vnto you, Sweare not at all, neither by heauen, for it is the throne of God: 35 Nor yet by the earth: for it is his footestoole: neither by Hierusalem: for it is the citie of the great King. 36 Neither shalt thou sweare by thine head, because thou canst not make one heare white or blacke. 37 But let your communication be Yea, yea: Nay, nay. For whatsoeuer is more then these, commeth of euill.
