But if you tell this business of ours, then we will be guiltless of your oath that you have made us to swear.” Bible

“we will be guiltless of your oath.” To anyone who fears God, taking an oath is a very serious business. God expects people to keep their word, and even more so if it is an oath (cp. Ps. 15:4; Ecc. 5:1-6).
