The state's counsel, your fellows' and your own, you shall keep secret. You shall present no man for envy, hatred or malice; nor leave any man unpresented for love, fear, favor, affection or hope of reward; but you shall present things truly as they come to your knowledge, according to the best of your understanding. So help you God."

So help you God."
