41. Hezekiel 17:19. As surely as I live, says the Lord, I will bring down on his head my oath which has has despised, and my covenant which he has broken.
42. Matthew 5:34,37. But I say to you, that you should not swear at all. Let your speech simply be like this: let your "yes" be "yes" and your "no" be "no". Anything beyond this from evil.
