The third commandment of the covenant between YaHuWaH and his people has to do with the proper use of His name and our actions. YaHuWaH is, in Hebrew 'Qodesh' which means 'Set-apart', and the name of YaH is also Qodesh / Set-apart. Therefore, the misuse of His name is forbidden. YaHuWaH will hold anyone who profanes His name accountable. To address YaHuWaH by the title Lord (Ba'al) or God (Gad) brings His name to naught. As mentioned in a previous section to bring His name to naught means to make void, empty, worthless. To flippantly use the name, or to say the name carelessly or without thought to the set-apart character of the one whose name is being used, is to bring His name to naught. Ultimately we must not dishonour His name or, diminish it. To mishandle His name indicates that you do not love YaHuWaH and you do not want to honour or revere Him.
Also to never mention His precious name brings His name to naught. When addressing Him in prayer, it is essential to our relationship that we call upon Him by his name. Just as we address humans by their given name, we are to speak to our heavenly Father by using his revealed name - YaHuWaH.
