What is taking Yah’s Name in Vain?

Taking Yah’s name in vain is less about translation and spelling but more about reverence for His authority, and representing His character and His sanctification and His holiness in your life.

Those that carry His name are quick to denounce things that violate His name. Where are you taking His name?

“Be not deceived, bad company corrupts good morals.”



Taking the name of God in vain has do to with disrespect and dishonor from the HEART, not translation. It also has to do with doing evil things in His name that do not fit His character.

2 Samuel 12:14 Howbeit, because by this DEED thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the Lord to BLASPHEME, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.


King David pronounced YAHUAH’S name very well, but the adultery and murder in His heart and actions gave the opportunity for blasphemy of YAH. It’s not the translation or the pronunciation but our ACTIONS (DEEDS) that violate His Holy Name.
