“Accustome not thy mouth to swearing: neither vse thy selfe to the naming of the holy one.”

King James Version (KJV)

Ecclesiasticus 23:9

6. Let not the greedinesse of the belly, nor lust of the flesh take hold of me, and giue not ouer me thy seruant into an impudent minde. 7. Heare, O yee children, the discipline of the mouth: He that keepeth it, shall neuer be taken in his lippes. 8. The sinner shall be left in his foolishnesse: both the euill speaker and the proud shall fall thereby. 9. Accustome not thy mouth to swearing: neither vse thy selfe to the naming of the holy one. 10. For as a seruant that is continually beaten, shall not be without a blew marke: so hee that sweareth and nameth God continually, shal not be faultlesse. 11. A man that vseth much swearing shall be filled with iniquity, and the plague shall neuer depart from his house: If he shall offend, his sinne shall be vpon him: and if he acknowledge not his sinne, hee maketh a double offence, and if he sweare in vaine, he shall not be innocent, but his house shall be full of calamities. 12. There is a word that is clothed about with death: God graunt that it be not found in the heritage of Iacob, for all such things shall be farre from the godly, and they shall not wallow in their sinnes.
