- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
5:36 For thou canst not make one hair white or black - Whereby it appears, that this also is not thine but God's.
Mt 5:36 By thy head. Senseless, since the oath could have no meaning. Dr. Thompson ("The Land and the Book") says the Orientals are still terribly profane, swearing continually by the head, the beard, the heart, the temple, the church.

To me this verse is saying first of all we are not suppose to swear by anything at all. Second i think it is saying it is not within our power to change our hair color. God gave us what he wanted us to have.

"...,because you can not make one hair white or black"
This is my testimony.
Without reason God put me on terrible suffer for about seven days. I was completely devastate. Even I spent all my money on some stupid medications that did no help. Then without a visible reason the pain disappeared and some money I even forgot came. All this is happening in seven or eight days.
For all that time the only thing I could do is to pray from the deepest point of my heart and soul and mind.
The point of all this is that when I see a comment that GOD is good I feel a little resistance.
The GOD OUR LORD is almighty, that is my attitude. GOD can be good, GOD is certainly righteous, but from an angle of a single person GOD can be terrible.
Concerning GOD all we can do is to pray and Jesus Christ our savior and leader told us how.
I SEEK FOR YOUR KINGDOM AND YOUR JUSTICE, AND ELSE SHALL BE ADDED
