MATTHEW 5:33-37: What does the Bible say about the taking of oaths?

Both Hebrew and Greek words used in the Bible to express taking an oath imply a formal and solemn declaration of one's commitment to fulfilling the promise. It's accompanied by an invocation of God's name or other sacred things as a witness and guarantor of the promise. It was a way to add more weight to the commitment and to make it more binding.
