Matthew 5:37

Context
NET ©

Let your word be ‘Yes, yes’ or ‘No, no.’ More than this is from the evil one. 1 

NIV ©

Simply let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’, and your ‘No’, ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.

NASB ©

"But let your statement be, ‘Yes, yes’ or ‘No, no’; anything beyond these is of evil.

NLT ©

Just say a simple, ‘Yes, I will,’ or ‘No, I won’t.’ Your word is enough. To strengthen your promise with a vow shows that something is wrong.

MSG ©

Just say 'yes' and 'no.' When you manipulate words to get your own way, you go wrong.

BBE ©

But let your words be simply, Yes or No: and whatever is more than these is of the Evil One.

NRSV ©

Let your word be ‘Yes, Yes’ or ‘No, No’; anything more than this comes from the evil one.

NKJV ©

"But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.

NET © Notes

tn The term πονηροῦ (ponhrou) may be understood as specific and personified, referring to the devil, or possibly as a general reference to evil. It is most likely personified, however, since it is articular (τοῦ πονηροῦ, tou ponhrou). Cf. also “the evildoer” in v. 39, which is the same construction.
