“Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.”
Ex 20:7


“This commandment not only prohibits false oaths and common swearing, but it also forbids us to use the name of God in a light or careless manner, without regard to its awful significance.  By the thoughtless mention of God in common conversation, by appeals to Him in trivial manner, and by the frequent and thoughtless repetition of His name, we should dishonour Him.  “Holy and reverend is his name.”  All should meditate upon His majesty, His purity and holiness, that the heart may be impressed with a sense of His exalted character; and His holy name should be uttered with reverence and solemnity.”
– PP 306, 307
