33 Again, you have heard that it was said to the ancients: 'You shall not swear falsely. For you shall repay your oaths to the Lord.'
34 But I say to you, do not swear an oath at all, neither by heaven, for it is the throne of God,
35 nor by earth, for it is his footstool, nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great king.
36 Neither shall you swear an oath by your own head, because you are not able to cause one hair to become white or black.
37 But let your word 'Yes' mean 'Yes,' and 'No' mean 'No.' For anything beyond that is of evil.
2 Corinthians 5:14-21
14 For the charity of Christ urges us on, in consideration of this: that if one died for all, then all have died.
15 And Christ died for all, so that even those who live might not now live for themselves, but for him who died for them and who rose again.
16 And so, from now on, we know no one according to the flesh. And though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know him in this way no longer.
17 So if anyone is a new creature in Christ, what is old has passed away. Behold, all things have been made new.
18 But all is of God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ, and who has given us the ministry of reconciliation.
19 For certainly God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, not charging them with their sins. And he has placed in us the Word of reconciliation.
20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, so that God is exhorting through us. We beseech you for Christ: be reconciled to God.
21 For God made him who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the justice of God in him.
