The Hippocratic Oath
I actually SWEAR by Apollo the medical doctor, AEsculapius, and Health, and All-heal, and the gods and goddesses, that, in respect to my ability and judgement, Let me keep this Oath and this stipulation. TO RECHON him who taught me this kind of Art similarly dear in my opinion as my parents, to share my personal substance with him, and relieve his necessities in the event that required; to look up his offspring inside the same footing as my brothers, also to teach these people this fine art, if they will shall would like to learn this, without payment or accord; and that simply by precept, address, and every other mode of instruction, Let me impart a knowledge of the Fine art to my sons, and others of my personal teachers, and also to disciples sure by a entendu and pledge according legislation of medicine, but to non-e other folks. I WILL STICK TO that approach to regimen which in turn, according to my capacity and judgment, I consider for the benefit of my people, and avoid whatever can be deleterious and mischievous. I will give not any deadly medication to any 1 if asked, nor advise any such advice; and in like manner I will not provide a woman a pessary to generate abortion. WITH PURITY AND WITH HOLINESS I will move my life and practice my Art. I will not cut persons laboring under the rock, but will leave this to be done by males who happen to be practitioners on this work. Into whatever houses I enter, I will get into them intended for the benefit of the sick, and may abstain from every voluntary act of mischief and file corruption error; and, further from the seduction of females or males, of freemen and slaves. WHATEVER, IN CONNECTION with my professional practice or perhaps not, regarding the it, I see or hear, in the existence of males, which really need not to end up being spoken of abroad, I will not divulge, as reckoning that all these kinds of should be held secret. WHEN I CONTINUE to keep this Oath unviolated, may it be approved to me to relish life plus the practice of the art, respected by almost all men, always! But do i need to trespass and violate this Oath, may well the invert be my own lot!
