“Who so therefore shall sweare by the Altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.”
King James Version (KJV)
17. Ye fooles and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the Temple that sanctifieth the gold? 18. And whosoeuer shall sweare by the Altar, it is nothing: but whosoeuer sweareth by the gift that is vpon it, he is guiltie. 19. Ye fooles and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the Altar that sanctifieth the gift? 20. Who so therefore shall sweare by the Altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. 21. And who so shall sweare by the Temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. 22. And he that shall sweare by heauen, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon. 23. Woe vnto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; for yee pay tithe of mint, and annise, and cummine, and haue omitted the weightier matters of the Law, iudgement, mercie and faith: these ought ye to haue done, and not to leaue the other vndone.
