LDS First Token of the Aaronic Priesthood:

“I do covenant and promise that I will never reveal the First Token of the Aaronic Priesthood, together with its accompanying name, sign, and penalty. Rather than do so I would suffer my life to be taken.”

Masonic First Degree:

“I will always hail, ever conceal and never reveal any part or parts, art or arts, point or points of the secret arts and mysteries of ancient Freemasonry … binding myself under no less penalty than to have my throat cut across, [and] my tongue torn out by the roots.”
