I swear by Almighty God that the evidence I shall give will be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Alternative formas are available, according to religion - or lack of it. Commonest variation is to affirm: Instead of 'I swear by Almighty God', one says 'I do solemnly affirm and declare'. This is used by both militant atheists and those Christians who take seriously Jesus' injunction not to swear at all.
