Oath of Abjuration

Oath of Abjuration is a name for the oath which was administered to the subjects of Scotland after the deposition of king James. The obnoxious clause in this oath reads as follows:

"And I do faithfully promise, to the utmost of my power, to support, maintain, and defend the succession of the crown against him, the said James, and all other persons whatsoever, as the same is and stands settled by an act entitled 'An Act declaring the Rights and Liberties of the Subject, and settling the Succession of the Crown to her present Majesty and the Heirs of her Body, being Protestants;' and as the same, by another act entitled 'An Act for the further limitation of the Crown, and better securing the Rights and Liberties of the Subject,' is and stands settled."
