And thou shalt swear, The Lord liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory. (Jer. 4:2)

The ancient form of taking and imposing an oath was, Give glory to God. {1, 2}

Scriptures:

  1. And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the Lord God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and tell me now what thou hast done; hide it not from me. Joshua 7:19
  2. Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner. John 9:24
