swear not.
but.
lest.
 in defending ourselves we may so forget what is due to God that we seek to confirm our statements by irreverently invoking the Name of God, or heaven, or earth. It is the utmost irreverence to use, in the heat of passion, divine Names to seek to gain credit before men. (The Coming of the Lord by H. Smith)
