منْ حَلَفَ بِالسَّمَاء، فَقَدْ حَلَفَ بِعَرْشِ اللهِ وبِالجَالِسِ عَلَيه/Whoever swears by heaven swears by the throne of God and by him who sits upon it

منْ حَلَفَ بِالسَّمَاء، فَقَدْ حَلَفَ بِعَرْشِ اللهِ وبِالجَالِسِ عَلَيه.
إنجيل القدّيس متّى23/من16حتى22/قالَ الربُّ يَسوع: «أَلوَيلُ لَكُم، أَيُّهَا القَادَةُ العُمْيَان! لأَنَّكُم تَقُولُون: مَنْ حَلَفَ بِالمَقْدِس، فَلا قِيمَةَ لِحَلَفِهِ، أَمَّا مَنْ حَلَفَ بِذَهَبِ المَقْدِس، فَحَلَفُهُ مُلْزِم. أَيُّهَا الجُهَّالُ والعُمْيَان، مَا الأَعْظَم؟ الذَّهَبُ أَمِ المَقْدِسُ الَّذي يُقَدِّسُ الذَّهَب؟! وتَقُولُون أَيضًا: مَنْ حَلَفَ بِالمَذْبَح، فلا قِيمَةَ لِحَلَفِهِ، أَمَّا مَنْ حَلَفَ بِالتَّقْدِمَةِ الَّتي عَلَيه، فَحَلَفُهُ مُلْزِم. أَيُّهَا العُمْيَان! مَا الأَعْظَم؟ التَّقْدِمَةُ أَمِ ٱلمَذْبَحُ الَّذي يُقَدِّسُ التَّقْدِمَة؟! فَمَنْ حَلَفَ بِالمَذْبَح، فَقَدْ حَلَفَ بِهِ وَبِكُلِّ مَا عَلَيْه. ومَنْ حَلَفَ بِالمَقْدِس، فَقَدْ حَلَفَ بِهِ وبِٱللهِ السَّاكنِ فِيهِ. ومَنْ حَلَفَ بِالسَّمَاء، فَقَدْ حَلَفَ بِعَرْشِ اللهِ وبِالجَالِسِ عَلَيه.

Whoever swears by heaven swears by the throne of God and by him who sits upon it..
Matthew 23/16-22/”Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘If anyone swears by the temple, it is nothing, but if anyone swears by the gold of the temple, he is bound by his oath.’ You blind fools! For which is greater, the gold or the temple that has made the gold sacred? And you say, ‘If anyone swears by the altar, it is nothing, but if anyone swears by the gift that is on the altar, he is bound by his oath.’ You blind men! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that makes the gift sacred? So whoever swears by the altar swears by it and by everything on it. And whoever swears by the temple swears by it and by him who dwells in it. And whoever swears by heaven swears by the throne of God and by him who sits upon it..
