Example of Oath

An oath was originally a statement made to swear honesty in ancient times. An oath was therefore a real social obligation, and to break an undertaking made under oath was unacceptable. In modern times, oaths are administered under statutes, and carry legal obligations regarding their veracity. A false statement under oath is an offence, in some cases punishable by jail terms. Oaths are usually administered under specific statutory legislation.

Examples of Oath:

Remember you're under oath to tell the truth.
I took an oath to uphold the law.
Political interviews are not given under oath.
If you break an oath, you reduce your credibility.
