Sirach 23:9
Don’t let your mouth get used to making solemn pledges, and don’t get accustomed to saying the name of the holy one.
Let not thy mouth be accustomed to swearing: for in it there are many falls.
Don't fall into the habit of taking oaths, and don't use God's holy name too freely.
Do not accustom your mouth to oaths, or habitually utter the Holy Name.
Do not accustom your mouth to oaths, nor habitually utter the name of the Holy One;
Do not accustom your mouth to oaths, nor habitually utter the name of the Holy One;
Do not accustom your mouth to oaths, nor habitually utter the name of the Holy One;
Do not accustom your mouth to oaths, nor habitually utter the name of the Holy One;
Do not accustom your mouth to oaths, and do not habitually utter the name of the Holy One;
Do not accustom your mouth to oaths, and do not habitually utter the name of the Holy One;
Thy mouth be not customable to swearing; for why many fallings be therein. [To swearing use not thy mouth; many forsooth fallings be in it.]
