In all the Scriptures, the Holy Spirit tells us not to swear, in the Bible there is no command to swear! (Proverbs 20:5). In fact, there appears to be no command to swear in our language any more, because we do it in writing. The New Testament teaches that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins (John 15:18). God also raised Christ and His sinful body from the dead on the third day (Luke 24:27).
In the Old Testament God commands the Israelites to swear against one another (I Samuel 16:23-25; Deuteronomy 18:10-11, 14; 20:4; 22:8). But the Bible speaks of blessings and curses, not swearings; therefore, it is not necessary to swear.
I am the head over all things (Colossians 1:21). All people are to keep the Word of God (Hebrews 2:14). That means that the Bible is good and useful and that people who accept the Word of God should live according to it consistently and faithfully.
The Bible requires you to be a good witness to God (Deuteronomy 30:1-9; Leviticus 17:16); not to swear at every occasion (Joshua 7:17:14), not to tell untruths (Isaiah 8:8), not to say something you don’t mean (Deuteronomy 24:15). The Bible’s teaching is that we should never lie, even about ourselves (Jeremiah 17:12), not to kill anyone who threatens our lives (Numbers 26:21), not to kill an innocent person (Judges 7:11-16), not to steal or commit a crime to the injury of someone else (Proverbs 4:21), not to commit adultery (Proverbs 18:22), not to take the Lord’s name in vain (Proverbs 15:6, 7), not to deceive a stranger (Proverbs 17:4), not to commit fraud or to steal or take life for the benefit of others (Proverbs 18:19; Isaiah 3:14-15; John 15:1-10); not to blaspheme (Matthew 7:28; Mark 6:1-22; Luke 7:21-24); and not to lie (John 13:34-38).
