Question 101

May we then swear religiously by the name of God?

Yes: either when the magistrates demand it of the subjects; or when necessity requires us thereby to confirm a fidelity and truth to the glory of God, and the safety of our neighbour: for such an oath is founded on God's word,287287    Deut. 6:13; Deut. 10:20; Isa. 48:1 ; Heb. 6:16. and therefore was justly used by the saints, both in the Old and New Testament.288288    Gen. 21:24; Gen. 31:53, 54; Jos. 9:15, 19; 1 Sam. 24:22; 2 Sam. 3:35; 1 Kin. 1:28–30; Rom. 1:9; 2 Cor. 1:23.
