To Adju're. v.a. [adjuro, Lat.] To impose an oath upon another, prescribing the form in which he shall swear.
Thou know'st, the magistrates
And princes of my country came in person,
Solicited, commanded, threaten'd, urg'd,
Adjur'd by all the bonds of civil duty,
And of religion, press'd how just it was,
How honourable. Milton's Sampson Agonistes, l. 853.
Ye lamps of heav'n! he said, and lifted high
His hands now free, thou venerable sky!
Inviolable pow'rs! ador'd with dread,
Ye fatal fillets! that once bound this head,
Ye sacred altars! from whose ﬂames I fled,
Be all of you adjured. Dryden, Æneid ii.
