I WILL follow that metho'd of treatment which, according to my, ability and judgment, ! consider for the benefit of my patients, and abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous. I will give'no deadly medicine to anyone if asked, nor suggest any such counsel; furthermore, ! will not give to a woman an instrument to produce abortion. W ITH PURITY and holiness 1 will pass my life and practice my art. I will not cut a person who is suffering with a stone, but will leave this to be done by practitioners of this work. Into whatever houses I enter I will go into them for the benefit of the sick and will abstain from every voluntary act of mischief and corruption; and further from the seduction of females or males, bond or free. W HATEVER, In connection with my professional practice, or not in connection with it, I may see or hear in the lives of men which ought not to be spoken abroad, I will not divulge, as reckoning that all such should be kept secret. W HILE I CONTINUE to keep this oath unviolate'd, may it b'e granted to me to enjoy life and the practice of fh« art, respected by all men at all times, but should I trespass and violate this oath, may the reverse be my lot.
