VALID  OATHS 
Matt 23 Mark Luke
16 "Woe to you, blind guides, who say,    
  'If one swears by the temple, it is nothing;    
  but if one swears by the gold in the temple,    
  he is bound by his oath.'    

17

You blind fools!    
  For which is greater,    
  the gold or the temple that has made the gold sacred?    

18

And you say,    
  'If one swears by the altar, it is nothing;    
  but if one swears by the gift that is on the altar,    
  he is bound by his oath.'    

19

You blind men!    
  For which is greater,    
  the gift or the altar that has made the gift sacred?    

20

So he who swears by the altar,    
  swears by it and by everything on it;    

21

and he who swears by the temple,    
  swears by it and by him who dwells in it;    

22

and he who swears by heaven,    
  swears by the throne of God and him who sits on it."
