SECT. XV. Concerning oaths.

OTHER laws forbid perjury; but this would have us entirely to abstain from oaths,319319   Matt. v. 33, 34, 35, 36, 37. James v. 12. except upon necessity; and to have so great regard to truth in our common conversation, that there should be no need of requiring an oath of us.320320   See the fore-mentioned place of Matthew.
