Examples of Oaths

The following verses are examples of oath’s in the bible.

David’s oath

1 Samuel 20:3-4    Then David took an oath again, and said, “Your father certainly knows that I have found favor in your eyes, and he has said, ‘Do not let Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved.’ But truly, as the Lord lives and as your soul lives, there is but a step between me and death.”

So Jonathan said to David, “Whatever you yourself desire, I will do it for you.”

 

Elijah’s oath

2 Kings 2:2    Then Elijah said to Elisha, “Stay here, please, for the Lord has sent me on to Bethel.”

But Elisha said, “As the Lord lives, and as your soul lives, I will not leave you!” So they went down to Bethel.

 

Esau’s oath

Peter’s oath

Mark 14:71    71 Then he began to curse and swear, “I do not know this Man of whom you speak!”

 

Ruth’s oath

Ruth 1:17    17 Where you (Naomi) die, I (Ruth) will die,

And there will I be buried.

The Lord do so to me, and more also,

If anything but death parts you and me.”

 

Saul’s oath

1 Samuel 19:6    So Saul heeded the voice of Jonathan, and Saul swore, “As the Lord lives, he shall not be killed.”

 

Please remember that if we have any hope in our Lord and Savior who gave us “everything” we must be continually faithful to the Lord, first. Remember, God loved us first, even before He created us.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
