33 "Again, 1you have heard that the ancients were told, '2YOU SHALL NOT MAKE FALSE VOWS, BUT SHALL FULFILL YOUR VOWS TO THE LORD.'
34 "But I say to you, 3make no oath at all, either by heaven, for it is 4the throne of God,
35 or by the earth, for it is the 5footstool of His feet, or by Jerusalem, for it is 6THE CITY OF THE GREAT KING.
36 "Nor shall you make an oath by your head, for you cannot * make one hair white or black.
37 "But let your statement be, 'Yes, yes ' or 'No, no '; anything beyond these is of 7evil.
