  • A formally affirmed promise to fulfill a pledge, often to God or an other form of deity. An oath is an attestation of the truthfulness of statements made by an individual and often has religious significance. In legal cases, individuals who address the court are asked to take an oath before their testimony. Failure to respect the oath constitutes a criminal offense (perjury).
