The Sharia of Moses in the TORA
Part 1 - The 248 Positive Commandments of the Tora
7 - TAKING AN OATH BY GOD'S NAME
By this injunction, it is commanded to swear only by His Name (exalted be He), whenever one is required to confirm or deny something on oath, because by so doing he exalts, honors and magnifies Him. According to the Talmud, all transgressions may be forgiven except those involving a false oath. Even where uttered in all innocence, and where it was not in anyone’s power to prevent it, the offender must suffer punishment.
