A Discourse Against Profane Swearing. For Mony, Swear by No God, Though You Swear Truly; (Said Isocrates.) Avoid Swearing, Wholly, If You Can; (Said Epictetus.) Forbear Swearing About Any Matter, (Said Plato.) and Diverse the Like Precepts Occur in Other Heathens; The Mention Whereof May Well Serve to Strike Shame Into Many Loose and Vain People, Bearing the Name of Christians. It Is a Sin, of All Others, Provocative of Divine Judgment: 'Tis Very Noxious to Human Society. It Often Brings the Practiser of It Into the Most Horrible Sin of Perjury. False Swearing Naturally Springeth Out of Much Swearing. It Disparages Him That Uses It, and Derogates From His Credit. 'Tis Gross Rudeness. And 'Tis an Insolent Defiance of the Common Profession, the Religion, the Law of Our Country, Which Disalloweth and Condemneth It.
