Matthew 5:33-35

New International Version (NIV)

Oaths
33 “Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made.’ 34 But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King.

This teaching, from the Sermon on the Mount, is why Mormons use the word “covenant” so much. One makes temple covenants—not temple oaths. Of course, the semantic difference between the two words helps stimulate the mental masturbation that is very important for Mormon doctrine.

http://biblehub.com/ is an excellent Bible reference tool. It has a good search engine, and you can choose among dozens of translations, even take a verse and get it posted in columns of different translations.

Joseph Smith's inspired translation somehow didn't make the cut. Aw, gee...
