If I were to ask you to define the word “praise” what would you say? I imagine most would say it means to sing. Others might say it means to shout or to lift up your hands. We probably all have a different interpretation of that word. But what if I told you that whenever you read the word “praise” in your english bible it actually has a specific meaning?
Over the next few posts I want to explore the 7 most common Hebrew words and their meanings that get translated into the english word praise. I’m confident that as we peal back the vainer of generalization for this word we’ll begin to discover hidden mysteries in the word of God and not only have a better understanding of the scriptures but a more intimate and expressive lifestyle of worship.
