Q&A 53 etc. Of the Third Commandment


How doth this Commandment differ from the first and the second?  A. The first hath respect to the Object of Worship, forbidding us to worship any other but God.  The second respects the Means of Worship, forbidding us to worship God by any other Means than what he hath prescribed.  But the third respects the Manner of his Worship, forbidding all careless or profane Use of his Name, and commanding an holy Reverence from us in all our solemn Addresses to him, or ordinary mention of his Name, Mal 1:6
