Joshua 2:20 And if thou
utter this our business, then we will be quit
of thine oath which thou hast made us to swear.
And I will make thee swear
LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that
thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell: ... And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, then thou shalt be clear
from this my oath: only
bring not my son thither again.
Thou shalt not take
the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless
that taketh his name in vain.
Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one
to another. ... And ye shall
not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane
the name of thy God: I [am
] the LORD.
Numbers 30:2 If a man vow a vow
unto the LORD, or swear
an oath to bind
his soul with a bond; he shall not break
his word, he shall do
according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.
2 Samuel 21:1
Then there was a famine in the days of David three years, year after year; and David enquired
of the LORD. And the LORD answered, [It is]
, and for [his
] bloody house, because he slew the Gibeonites. ... And the king called the Gibeonites, and said unto them; (now the
] not of the children of Israel, but of the remnant of the Amorites
; and the children of Israel had sworn unto them: and Saul sought to slay them in his zeal
to the children of Israel and Judah.)
2 Samuel 21:7
But the king spared Mephibosheth
, the son of Jonathan the son of Saul, because
of the LORD'S oath that [was
] between them, between David and Jonathan the son of Saul.
