15 By this you shall be proved. By the health of Pharao you shall not depart hence unless your youngest brother come hither.
Genesis 42:15 Cross References - Thomson
7 And when Joseph saw his brothers he knew them and was reserved and spoke harshly to them and said to them, Whence come you? And they said, From the land of Chanaan to buy food.
12 But he said, Nay, you are come for no other purpose, but to examine the ways into this country.
16 Send one of you and bring your brother; but you must be confined, until your words be proved whether you speak true or not. If not, by the health of Pharao you are certainly spies.

30 The man the lord of the country spoke harshly to us and put us in prison as coming to spy the country;

3 Whereupon Judas spoke to him and said, The man who is the lord of the country solemnly protested saying, You shall not see my face, unless your youngest brother be with you.
20 And we said to my lord, We have a father an old man; and he hath a younger son of his old age. His brother is dead, and as he is the only one of his mother left; his father loveth him. 21 Then thou saidst to thy servants, Bring him down to me and I will take care of him. 22 And we said to my lord, This son cannot leave his father; for if he were to leave him, his father would die. 23 Then thou saidst to thy servants, Unless your younger brother come down with you, you shall no more be admitted to see my face. 24 So when we went up to thy servant our father, we told him the words of our lord. 25 And when our father said, Go again and buy for us a little food; 26 we said, We cannot go. If indeed our youngest brother will go down with us, we will go down. For we cannot see the man's face unless our youngest brother be with us. 27 Thereupon thy servant our father said to us, You know that my wife bore me two sons; 28 and that one went out from me and you said he was devoured by a wild beast and I have not seen him since. 29 If therefore you take this one also from me and any misfortune happen to him on the journey, you will bring down my old age with sorrow to the grave. 30 Now therefore if I should go to thy servant our father and this son be not with us, as his life dependeth on the life of this son, 31 it will come to pass that when he shall see that this son is not with us he will die. Thus will thy servants bring down the old age of thy servant our father with sorrow to the grave. 32 Besides as thy servant received this son from his father and said, If I bring him not back to thee and set him before thee, let me be as a sinner against my father for ever; 33 now therefore let me stay with thee instead of him as a slave to my lord, and let this son go up with his brothers [for how can I go up to my father and this son not with us?] that I may not see the evils which will befal my father.
13 Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God, and serve him alone, and cleave to him, and swear by his name.
26 Attend to me, my lord! As thy soul liveth, I am the woman who stood in thy presence with thee when I prayed to the Lord.
3 And David in reply to Jonathan, said, Thy father knoweth well, that I have found favour in thy sight, therefore he said, Jonathan must not know this. He will not consent. But as the Lord liveth, and thy soul liveth, it is as I said. There is but a step between me and death.
2 They say, "As the Lord liveth." Do they not on this very account swear to falsehoods?
7 for which of these can I be merciful to thee? Thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by things which are no Gods. When I fed them plentifully, they committed adultery, and revelled in the houses of harlots.
33 Again you have heard that it hath been said to the ancients, Thou shalt not forswear thyself; but shalt perform thine oaths to the Lord. 34 But I say to you, Swear not 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 neither shalt thou swear by thy head; for thou canst not make one hair white or black. 37 But let your word yes, be yes; and your no, no; for whatever exceedeth these, proceedeth from that which is evil.
16 Alas for you, blind guides, who say, to swear by the temple is not binding; but to swear by the gold of the temple is binding. 17 Foolish and blind! which is greater? The gold? Or the temple which halloweth the gold? 18 And, to swear by the altar doth not bind; but to swear by the gift thereon is binding. 19 Foolish and blind! which is greater? The gift? Or the altar which halloweth the gift? 20 He therefore who sweareth by the altar, sweareth by it and by all on it. 21 And he who sweareth by the temple, sweareth by it and by him who dwelleth therein. 22 And he who sweareth by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him who sitteth upon it.
12 Now above all things, my brethren, swear not, either by heaven, or by the earth, or by any other oath; but let your yes, be yes; and your no, no; that you may not fall under condemnation.
