The meaning of πιορκ in Matt 5:33 remains uncertain in the NT lexicon of Bauer in English and in major commentaries. This paper traces the problem in Bauer to misreading of punctuation. A re-examination of the evidence establishes that the appropriate meaning is break one’s sworn promise, and this is seen to be the meaning Bauer intended.
