Matthew week 28
Matthew 5:33-37 ESV
33 “Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.’ 34 But I say to you, Do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. 36 And do not take an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. 37 Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.
Matthew 23:16 ESV

There are six things that the Lord hates,
Seven that are an abomination to Him:

Feet that run rapidly to evil,
19 A false witness who declares lies,
And one who spreads strife among brothers.
