"Again 1you have heard that it was said to those of old, 2'You shall not swear falsely, but 3shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.'
But I say to you, 4Do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for 5it is the throne of God,
or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is 6the city of the great King.
And do not take an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black.
Let what you say be simply 'Yes' or 'No'; 7anything more than this comes from evil.
