To acknowledge of one's own.

Thou hast AVOUCHED the LORD this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and to hearken unto his voice: and the LORD hath AVOUCHED thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments. ( Deuteronomy 26:17-18 )
