    VERSE (36) -
    Mt 23:16-21

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:36

    Ni por tu cabeza jurars, porque no puedes hacer un cabello blanco o negro.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 5:36

    Verse 36. Neither shalt thou
    swear by thy head] For these plain reasons: 1st. God commands thee not to do it. 2dly. Thou hast nothing which is thy own, and thou shouldst not pledge another's property. 3dly. It never did, and never can, answer any good purpose. And 4thly. Being a breach of the law of God, it is the way to everlasting misery.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 36. Neither shalt thou
    swear by thy head , etc.] This also was a common form of swearing among the Jews: take a few instances. If anyone is bound to his friend by an oath, and says to him, vow unto me ar yyjb , by the life of thy head; R. Meir says f334 , he may retract it; but the wise men say, he cannot.

    Again f335 , a certain Rabbi said to Elijah, I heard Bath Kol (or the voice from heaven) mourning like a dove, and saying, woe to my children; for, because of their sins, I have destroyed my house, and have burnt my temple, and have carried them captive among the nations: and he (Elijah) said unto him ar yyjw yyj , by thy life, and by the life of thy head, not this time only it says so, but it says so three times every day.

    Once more f336 , says R. Simeon ben Antipatras, to R. Joshua, I have heard from the mouth of the wise men, that he that vows in the law, and transgresses, is to be beaten with forty stripes: he replies, blessed art thou of God, that thou hast so done, ar yyjw yyj , by thy life, and by the life of thy head, he that is used to do so is to be beaten.

    This form of swearing is condemned, for this reason, because thou canst not make one hair white or black : which shows, that a mans head, nor, indeed, one hair of his head, is in his own power, and therefore he ought not to swear by it; as he ought not to swear by heaven, or earth, or Jerusalem, because these were in the possession of God. Some copies read, canst not make one white hair black.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 33-37 - There is no reason to consider that solemn oaths in a court of justice or on other proper occasions, are wrong, provided they are taken with due reverence. But all oaths taken without necessity, or in commo conversation, must be sinful, as well as all those expressions whic are appeals to God, though persons think thereby to evade the guilt of swearing. The worse men are, the less they are bound by oaths; the better they are, the less there is need for them. Our Lord does no enjoin the precise terms wherein we are to affirm or deny, but such constant regard to truth as would render oaths unnecessary.
