This coloring sheet illustration for the Third Commandment shows a Hebrew child pointing toward heaven as if giving praise to God. Two other children are looking side-eyed and appear to making fun of the devote child for worshiping God. The scripture quote reads, “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God.”
You can compare the NIV translation below which says “misuse the name” and the ESV translation which says “not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.” Our illustration uses the more direct for that is consistent with modern English usage.
“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.Exodus 20:7 NIV
“You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.Exodus 20:7 ESV
