12 But [de] above [pro] all things [pas], my [mou] brethren [adelphos], swear [omnuo] not [me], neither [mete] by heaven [ouranos],
neither [mete] by the earth [ge], neither [mete] by any [tis] other [allos] oath [horkos]: but [de] let [eto] your [humon] yea [nai] be [eto] yea [nai]; and [kai] your nay [ou], nay [ou]; lest [hina

into [eis] condemnation [hupokrisis].KJV-Interlinear
12 But above all, my brethren, do
not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath; but let your
yes be yes, and your no, no; so that you may not fall under judgment.NASB
Above all, be honest
in your life.Have integrity in your
words and actions.Be honorable in your lifestyle.
Those who boast,
those who brag, those who are adamant, those who are belligerent, those who are
complainers, those who are quarrelsome, those who are defiant, those who have

No one has any
excuse, and everyone has sufficient information to make correct decisions and
know the difference between Gods path and the worlds.God will never force anyone to follow His path.Every person has the freedom to choose on
their own, even if their choice is self-destruction and failure.
Let your yes be yes
and your no be no, simply means to be honest.Do not deceive.Do not cheat on
contracts.Do not take advantage.Do not be an opportunist.Do not lie or make false accusations.Do not make mountains out of molehills.
In fact, you should
go out of your way to protect others from your own faults, motives, desires, or
God is the ultimate
and only provider, of all that you have or will ever have.So, you should never need to take either by
force or deception, from anyone.
Grow up and be
Now is the time to post a prayer.
