By Noah Webster.
An attestation that one will tell the truth, or a promise to fulfill a pledge, often calling upon God as a witness. The best known oath is probably the witnessâ€™ pledge â€œto tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truthâ€ during a legal proceeding. In another context, a public official usually takes an â€œoath of officeâ€ before assuming her position, in which she declares that she will faithfully perform her duties.
